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?
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)
