Any recommendations for a good quality extra-wide (e.g. 39) 2/3 season sleeping bag which can be completely unzipped , and whether a sleeping bag liner is worth getting. Planning to use this in caravan instead of conventional sheet/duvet.

get a super kingsized quilt and fold in half and use a few buttons along the side to keep it closed or sew a zip in place

Got an Outdoor Revolution Star Fall midi 400 last year. It's half way between a single and a double, very roomy and toasty. Only used it fully zipped up twice so far as so warm

When we used a sleeping bag, we always used a bag liner. I like to feel a clean surface at the start of the trip, rather than smelling last trips sweaty nights. Cleaning a full sleeping bag is a faff, ours was too big for our machine, had to go to a laundrette.
No need to buy a liner, a single duvet cover thats open at the bottom / head works fine. Just put any buttons underneath, away from your face. Or sew up the side of a double sheet.
Cant poke a leg out though. But if its sweltering, you can use the liner on its own.

2024 = 7 sites / 15 nights. 2023 = 9/23. 2022 = 13/35. 2021 = 11/29. 2020 = 4/20. 2019 = 13/35. 2018 = 20/33. 2017 = 10/22. 2016 = 19/33. 2015 = 15 sites / 27 nights. Didn't count 1976 to 2014.

I have zipped 2 together in the past...but it only really works with the oblong ones rather than 'mummy' shaped.

Although I dislike Go Outdoors, they do a large one.

These days, we take a duvet. Cover the airbed with a mattress cover, then a fitted sheet and go from there. You are adding to the amount of things you pack but oh its so much more comfortable than something you get tangled up in.
