Motorhome Bedding- what’s the best solution for you?

Sharing is caring!

Looking for motorhome bedding? Want to know what's best? Here are ideas and solutions for motorhomes, campervans, RVs and caravans

What kind of bedding do you have in your motorhome or campervan?

Do you use sheets and duvet?

Sleeping bag?

If you have to make up the bed every night, it can be a pain to have to put away sheets, pillows etc- not to mention you then have to store them.

Having said that, we HATE sleeping bags- it's fine for a night or two (if we must) but when we spend so long in the van we prefer to be comfortable.

Motorhome bedding- what's the big deal?

One of the reasons I insisted on a fixed bed in our first two motorhomes was

  • a- so we didn't have to make up the bed each night and
  • b- so that we would have a proper comfortable mattress.

In our current van, we've found a mattress topper on top of the cushions is comfy enough- but it's a faff putting the topper on, and then the sheets, and then the duvet.

(Although, let's be honest, it only takes 5 minutes. And at least half that time is spent moving the dog out of the way)

  1. Hi Kat – sorry to hear your trip to Norway is on hold. Ours is 2022 fingers x.

    We have a 540 length camper with a fixed bed and a garage underneath for the dogs! We purchased a Dorma topper and use a sheet that gets wrapped around the topper and a duvet on top. Have tried all sorts of combos over the years but we always go back to this. V comfy. Happy travels wherever you end up!

  2. As I live in mine full time and have fixed bed I have duvet and sheets as I would in a house. A company called In Dreams Bedding makes Custom Sized fitted sheets and mattress protectors at a brilliant price – about £8 to £10 a sheet and £10 to £12 a mattress protector for bed 7ft by 4ft 2” by 4” deep. I highly recommend and they have great choice of colours.

  3. Hi Kat, We had a long van conversion with sofas pulled out to make a big bed across the back. We simply use a super-kingsize double duvet (with cover) spread out over the bed to sleep on, and another duvet over the top, as normal. In the daytime both the duvets are folded up and laid on the sofas to sit on (and keep sofa cushions clean). Easy to wash! Have just traded in the trusty van, and we’re now awaiting our new Carthago, which has twin beds, so that’ll be another thing to think about how to make the beds up. Thanks for the ideas.
