Bedspread/Comforters


Does anyone still use the bedspread that came with their rig?  If not what did you change it too. 

I made a bad choice yesterday and washed (on gentle cycle) and dryed (on the lowest setting) the bedspread that came with our 5th wheel.  Even tho it said dry clean only  confuse.  The underside is a mess, it kinda melted, it was all stuck together.  I pulled alot of it loose, but it looks gathered on the top side.  Of course it is on the corner as you walk into the bedroom, so no hiding it.

I am going to search for a duvet cover in a solid color.  Just seems they make these colors hard to match.

Since we just got the Montana in March, we still use it. We did have a 2002 Cedar Creek we bought it 2007. Had original bedspread and it was in perfect condition. We could tell from the condition of everthing the unit that the previous owners did not use it much.

The bed cover that came with our MH was very nice in color and design, but it was a bit too heavy for daily use.  While in Maine, we purchased a wonderful cream color bedspread from L. L. Bean.  It has served wonderfully, is just the right weight and a wash and dry is easily accomplished.

We used ours for awhile then decided to use the one from the sticks n 'brick. The one that came with the rig is beautiful and the pillows that came with the rig are also, however it needs to be drycleaned. So I have it stored under our bed for now.

Julie, no worries. If you are concerned about replacing it, maybe you can purchase a matching one through this site:

If not, contact a Montana dealer, I'm sure they replace them all the time in their used units.

I went to Target purchased a reversible comforter in chocolate/tan.  It will also work for those colder nights as the original spread would not.

I looked on the site for replacements, our pattern was not on there.  No plans to get rid of our rig for a long time, so no worry about having the original spread.

Thanks for all the responses.

We still use ours and wash it ...it shows "Machine Washable"

It works well and matches the curtains and pillows in the bedroom area. We only use it as a bed spread.

We bought a northern Nights down comforter from QVC to use in the winter and one of the microfiber blankets from Beds, Bath & Beyond to use in the summer.

We stay nice and cozy no matter how hot or cold the weather.

Don't feel bad, I did the same thing. Because the rv was used, I automatically washed everything and the bedspread came out looking just fine, no melting or bunching. It wasn't until afterward that I realized it was dry clean only. Several weeks later when I caught the dogs playing on the bed, I decided it would be best to pack it away so that in the event we sell the rig, the comforter would be in good condition.

However, all is not lost. I now have a "project" LOL! I decided to replace the backing with washable backing. It was/is just a matter of carefully cutting off the old backing and sewing on large squares of the new backing.

Our spread, too, says machine wash only. I am thinking it is quite heavy and when we leave the northeast cold in 5 weeks, perhaps I need to buy something more appropriate. I love the spread and the shams but they really are not practical.

After buying our 5-wheel I took one look at the bedspread and decided to start looking for something else.  It was light beige and I knew this was never going to stay clean for long.  I found a reversible quilt at Canton First Monday.  I love it and can be washed.

We use duvet covers on our down comforter and can change and wash them easily as we change the bedding.

Even though we bought a new Fifth Wheel we decided to change alot of the items that come standard with any RV. We recovered the headboard, replaced the bed spread, recovered the window valances and removed the ukie border that ran throughout. We even removed the sofa and bought something we liked better. We are soon going to replace the two recliners. If it is going to be our home we want it to look like a home and not like all the other RV's. It was really fun making the changes.smile

We bought a reversible comforter from Wally World and we have also replaced the coverings on our valences as well as the wall paper border .  We originally had a pale green and very ugly flowers.  We used a modern border and a solid burgandy for the trim on the valences. By doing this we brighten the trailer up and added a new look to the trailer for very little cost.  Ir really isn't that hard to change the look of a trailer with just minor things.

It's a bed.  It's your home.biggrin
Go buy something you like.biggrinbiggrin

We tossed the ugly, ugly bedspread and fancy pillow covers that came with our coach.  Life is too short to have to put those stupid pillow covers on every day. (Ithink they are called shams.  Look up the word.  It fits).

My wife picked out a bedspread she likes,  and the pillow cases blend with the colors in the bedspread.  Sure simplifes everday living.  We don't expect to entertain Martha anytime soon. The bed looks fine without the sham of having shams.  biggrinbiggrinbiggrinbiggrinbiggrinbiggrin

George, you hit the nail right on the head.That's the first thing that went in our 5ver.My wife said it looked like something from a cheap Las Vegas Hotel room. As far as keeping it in case you sell your RV later I don't think it would make a nickles worth of difference in value.

I just took the original spread off the bed and stored it in one of those big ZipLockstorage bags along with the decorative pillows that came with the rig. If we should ever trade in our 5ver for a larger model, I'll have the spread to leave in the rig.

We have two quilts....one is a little lighter weight and good for summer (although it's also a little smaller) and the other is heavier and we use it in winter. The heavier one I got on sale at Cracker Barrel and I love it! In my old rig, I had a regular bedspread from my house.

Couldn't even give mine storage space. They looked like they came from the carnival or something so I took them off, along with the pillows and shams, and handed them to the salesman. Told him they could use them to "stage" another coach. Brown comforter for now but will replace once the sticker shock wears off.

I used what I had at the house till I started looking for a duvet cover. I found one I liked and thought "this pattern looks very familiar". It wasn't until I put it on the bed and had it there for a while that I realized it was the same pattern as our couch in the living room. (Sometimes not the brightest penny in my purse lol.)

In answer to your question, no, we never used the one that came in the 5er. It was ugly!

Our Cedar Creek has the same pattern on the valances, curtains and bedspread and I hate them all! Can't convince hubby yet to let me change the curtains or valances, but I did buy a beautiful duvet at Wal_Mart of all places. Doesn't match anything, but I don't care. We're not fulltiminng yet,s o I don't see it all that often anyway.

Which brings me to another point...has anyone changed out the curtains in  their rig and did you have to buy special ones or off the rack ones?

in the bedroom i painted the walls and redid the valances myself. we are in the process of paying a pro to revamp the closet. we also took out the tv for more storage. after the first of the year i an going to take out the dinette set and replace it with cabinets and a sideboard with 2 dining chairs and an exstention with folding chairs so it will seat four when needed. i am also going to paint the walls and redo the valences in the main area of the mh. i am leaving the daynight blinds alone until they get yucky then we will figure out something else. maybe dual rollar shades with one being blackouts.
it will be my fulltime home soon and why leave it "builder grade" when i can make it mine.
and no i am not a big handy person but if you go slow and figure it out, it can mostly be done without pro help
oh and we removed the sink in the bedroom and made a laundry hamper!

That's great!  I have no creative or craft talent at all....How did you replace your valances?  Ours are screwed in like you wouldn't believe!

We (wife) with my cheerleading, changed out the bedspread with a handmade quilt and all the curtains and valances.
She bought curtain panels (the blackout kind) from a discount store and did a fine job sewing them to make them fit the way we wanted...ie...a bit longer and fuller.
This winter she is making curtains that will fit the windows that are built into the two entry doors.
I like it dark when I sleep but also bright during the day. Mission accomplished on the windows...just pull the curtains open during the day and let the sun shine in.

i just unscrewed them. then removed the day/night shades. i cut the stupid arms off then added batting to smooth them out. then wrapped them in the new fabric. stapled the hell out of it, and screwed back in the blinds. the only part is with the day night blinds you have to attach them to your wall instead of the sides of the valences. make sure they are pulled as tight as possible so the blinds work right. just go real slow and it will turn out great!

My wife quilts while we travel and she have made a couple of quilts that she used on the bed as a bedspread. Switches them out every once in a while for a different look. When we first started out I think she used one from our S&B.
