Default Caravan bedding

Hello everyone,

Me and the hubby are in the process of buying and kitting out our first static. We're looking at bedding/duvets for the single beds - do you use a normal single duvet or can you get a smaller size?

Thanks

Hi Tinks, personally, I refuse to pay the prices people charge for 'specially sized' bedding to fit our narrow beds, all you have to do is tuck them down the back and under the mattress, and you can't tell! Honestly, you will pay a 'fortune' for special bedding.
I'm sure there are probably people on here who can point you in the direction of specialist, but I know where I'd rather spend my money lol...

we've always used standard single quilts/covers for the last 14 yrs (not the same ones lol)and never found it to be an issue. like angela said just tuck them down the back and under the mattress. they tend to be warmer aswel as they don't fall off lol.
