We have used sleeping bags before now, but now we have the camper I'm wondering if we should move to duvets?
I took our duvet when we camped and I'm not sure if it's because it was cold, or because we were in a tent, but it felt damp most of the time, hense why we invested in sleeping bags.
This experience put me off but now we are off the ground I'm not sure if it will be better or not.
If we go for it do we just by a double, or should we go for a kingsize?
What do you do?

Rather than buy a duvet straight off and possibly regret it, why not next time take the duvet off your bed at home and sleeping bags then if you don't get on with it you can always swap. I've got double 13.5tog duvets on our TT, no overhang on the beds, they fit just right.

I use a king size duvet bit big but better too much too little bed is king sized hence king sized duvet, with a sheet on mattress,never been cold execept at ends of season when we also take a blanket to put over the duvet. Nice and toasty!
The King Size bed in a Pullman and Pathfinder is the same as a double and the other bed is a small double. We use a double duvet on the kingsize bed and on my sons bed a single duvet in a double cover as the single duvet is the same size as the bed with no overhang and the excess cover gets tucked in at the back

We use a double 13.5 down duvet in the tent & in the tt.
Dubs did you use an airbed in the tent? If so, the dampness could have been condensation caused by the heat of your bodies hitting the cold air in the airbed . In the tent we use a fleece blanket & a fleece mattress cover on the airbed & never had a damp duvet. In the tt we use a 3" memory foam topper, fitted sheet & duvet - cosy

13.5 tog kingsized duvet for us, single duvet for child. I find I can't cocoon myself in a double duvet and so got cold...much better with the kingsize and we just fold it in half during the day so it's not overhanging the side of the bed. This year we have bought the heated matress toppers which were a godsend when we were away at easter.
