Bedspread

The AS bedspread is like cardboard so I removed it. Any ideas . I want the bed to look neat but I haven't found the right thing yet. It is for a Bambi.

I had planned on using the old bedspread as a pattern to remake it. But we have found that we just threw on some comforters. So far it has worked will for us. But this winter I believe I will make a quilt that will match the new fabric I got for the dinette

I got a solid white comforter from Ross. The price was right, it's very comfy, and it looks great.

Comforters

I wouldn't choose a chenille bedspread - just too much fuzz. I'd also recommend AGAINST a down comforter. Had one in my first A/S.... One or two featherlets in a house - you don't notice that much. They become a constant irritation in a small enclosed A/S. The place always looks a mess with the featherlets. Plus, unless you spend HUGE money for down, it often has a slight odor - again in a small space - that becomes stronger and almost rancid. Down also picks up ambient odors and hangs on to them.

There are some really good down substitutes now, and they are washable!

Of course there are always classic Pendleton blankets, Najavo weavings if you've got unlimited funds, or pick your poison at Bed Bath and Beyond.

I passed on the really high loft comforter sets - they overwhelm the space, but found a nice light green one that is only about 1/2 inch thick. It's MORE than warm enough for me. Even with our mild climate it's nearing freezing at night here in Va. Beach.

old fashioned

I have some old fashioned pieced quilts on the twins in the rear of our Excella. They are colorful and warm!

Paula is right, that down comforters do overwhelm the space. That issue aside, we splurged and bought a quality premium down duvet with cover and have not seen one single feather in the AS. It's usually cold at night where we camp, so it's toasty warm and saves us on propane.

We bought a Pendleton bedspread at one of their stores in Oregon. They are also online and in their catalogues, but some of the stores have discounted ones. I think this one cost around $100. You still need a blanket under it. It's reversible and each side is a bit different.

Good point, chenille bedspreads would be a mess to keep cleaning up the fuzzies that can cling. Made that mistake...

I use wool comforters. Much thinner than feather, and no problem with sharp, little feathers. I like comforters because they don't hang over the bed.

I use cotton covers on them.

Duvet or Bedspread Cover

I personally prefer down to blankets/bedspreads. It is soft and compressible, so you can hug it comfortably while sleeping. You can also make the bed in a flash and it looks neat. I also hate the smell of feathers or low-quality down. Our duvet is from Eddie Bauer. It never "leaks/sheds" down or has any odor. L.L.Bean also makes quality (non-stinky, non-shedding) down products.

The advantage with duvets is you can change your duvet cover to change the look. The red duvet cover is what we used for the last 2 summers, but I found it too dark, so I purchased a new, retro-looking one for this coming summer...can't wait to use it!

The other picture I'm attaching is what a friend did to her bedspread that came with her AS. She created a cover for the bedspread. She even made the radial corners! The bedspread slides right in. The fabric is soft combed cotton. She did an absolutely beautiful job. She can take the cover off to wash it easily. It feels so much more luxurious than the original bedspread.

Hope this helps!
Lisa
