Default caravan bedding sizes

Bit trivial this I suppose, but it's one thing that I find a bit frustrating. Is there somewhere you can buy quilts/bedding that aren't too big for a single bed in a caravan?

Before we bought our own van I seem to remember the hire caravans at places like Haven etc had bedding that fitted the single beds fine. But the quilts from home on our van's single beds seem huge. Just wondering if anyone has any info?

Thanks

Have a look at the link below and search through the pages. Although maybe not the perfect size, a lot of the bedding is around 30 inches in width (for bunk beds).

Hi, I think most of us just tuck them in extra at the back, specialised bedding will be expensive. Here's a couple of older threads with some useful info

What we have always done in various caravans we have owned is to buy a standard DOUBLE duvet for each single bed. You fold it in half and put the open ends towards the edge of the beds away from the walls and the closed folded part towards the walls. It becomes as snug as using a sleeping bag and the folded half and that you lie on gives extra warmth and comfort. Its as good as those expensive padded mattress toppers you can buy. Brilliant at the start and end of the season when its cooler. Keeps you snug and very comfy too and cheaper than buying specialised bedding & you can buy it anywhere.

Great. Thanks chaps.

We do tuck the current bedding down the sides etc but I'd just like something a bit smaller. Don't wanna pay a fortune though but bunk bedding is definitely worth looking into.

If you (or someone you know) have a sewing machine you could run a seam down a standard single duvet then cut the excess off. You could do the same with duvet covers. You just need to make sure you can "squash" the duvet down enough to get it under the needle.

we also use the double quilt technique on narrow single beds my son calls it his sausage roll and he's the meat filling, must admit in one twin room have removed small twin beds and put a 3 ft single in its place, a lot better but that depends if you can afford to loose a bed? regards dotti

Thanks Traction, and Dotti. I did think of putting a bigger single bed in the twin because we just have one child. Just a problem when he starts wanting to bring a friend etc. Suppose I could get around the whole thing by pushing the two small singles together and using a double quilt? That's a possibility.

Gash that's why we have left it as is, in case my sister goes and she take my niece a little friend. We also have double bedding that we vac pack - this can be used on the sofa bed in the lounge or on the 2 singles pushed together. Versatile to cover both eventualities

We got sick of sheets that were too big and fighting with the duvet. We ended up going to victorialinen.co.uk

they made small sheets for our twin bunks and a valance sheet for the main bed. It looks great!
