When sleeping in your caravan bed, you’ll no doubt want to recreate that home from home feeling when it comes to the caravan bedding sheets, duvets, and pillows that you use. By doing so, you can be assured of waking each morning rested and ready to take on the day ahead.
Some people assume that the quality of sleep in a caravan bed is poor, but, just because your caravan bed is slightly different in structure and size to that of your bed back home, there’s no reason why any caravanner needs to compromise on comfort here.
Regular domestic bedding items aren’t recommended on caravan beds as they don’t adequately cover, fit or stay put on these often-selective measurements of bed designs. This tends to mean most caravanners make do with blankets and loosely draped sheets over their beds – equalling a tough night’s sleep each time. You want to make sure the sheets you get are a perfect fit.
However, when it comes to selecting products for the caravan, there is bed linen which is designed and made specifically for caravan beds. So, forget those old and musty blankets stashed in the compartments and instead aim for the best caravan bedding which solely caters for your vans island bed, left or right-hand cut off bed, bunk bed or basic fixed bed.
These are six of the best caravan bedding items available for purchase which will help you get your fixed caravan bed made up to perfection, encouraging a more comfortable and relaxed sleeping arrangement every time. These should fit a wide range of makes of caravan such as Swift, Bailey and Jonic but most likely won’t be suitable for use as motorhome bedding.
