I'm 6'1" and have just enough space to sleep somewhat comfortably.
I've got a fat Thermarest pad, a 20° sleeping bag, and a second sleeping bag I use as a liner, and then a fleece liner in case it gets really cold (sleeping bag layering, I guess).
I use a 12v Dry Guy Circulator to dry my boots while I sleep.
My legs sweat at night after a workout, even in the cold, so Wickers lightweight longjohns and midweight undershirt keep the moisture close and warm, and the bag relatively dry.
A beanie and even a balaclava & fleece gloves are welcome on chilly nights. I've been good down to 0°, maybe a bit lower.
Crack your windows for ventilation -- even in snow.
I plan to engineer some quick-up black curtains for next season. Partly for insulating the glass, partly for privacy (the tint offers enough as long as I have no lights on).
The biggest thing for me is organization:
* Have you next day's change of clothes -- at least the base layer -- ready to go the night before. Know where to find them in the morning.
* Same goes for bedtime: organize you junk, lay your bag out, and have your bed clothes close by in a lighted parking lot. When you get to where you're going to sleep, you can slip from the front to the back seat without ever opening a door.
* Push your passenger seat forward so that the rear passenger seat behind it becomes your changing area. When you wake up, simply fold up the the right-hand rear seat so the bag and pad are out of the way, and you've got plenty of room to dress.
* Baby wipes, baby wipes, baby wipes!
* An electric tooth brush, Listerine and a coffee cup are not just luxuries.
* Bring a dirty laundry bag. Stow all that wet or stinky crap up in the pod.
I've done this successfully this season and last for up to two nights at a time. Great cost savings (makes me a hero in the wife's eyes), and it's nice being the first to the hill in the morning after a good night's sleep.
