    I have a mid 70s camper van that's, well, nominally functional, but I wouldn't personally use it in the winter. It occurred to me that maybe a full makeover would be cheaper than a new or new used...

    layering sleeping bags?

    Does a 10F bag with a 40F bag inside of it (with another 40F bag inside that??? probably won't fit) end up similar to having a single -20 bag or something like that?
