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?

Duvets in the trailer tent, sleeping bags in the tent.

That said DD uses a duvet in the underbed tent with her Dozer SIM and is very comfortable.

Don't know about the size though, sorry!

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.

Always duvets.  Sleeping bags do my head in especially when we used a double one and my husband strangled me every time he turned over.

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

Mattress topper with cotton sheet on top then double quilt on beds. I was way too hot when we last went in September. (Yes, maybe it's my age!)

When we changed to a duvet I noticed when the temperature got down, the outside felt damp, being cotton I guess, so we use a furry acrylic blanket on top, that seems to have sorted it out.

duvet vote from me too.   Plus we have a mattress fleecy under thing and even a heated underblanket to use in winter.  Also keep a couple of spare fleeces in the camper but not needed those yet.

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.

I use a summer weight duvet under me and a heavier one on top - I'm so cosy and comfortable in the trailer tent - sometimes I wake up thinking I'm in my bed at home!
I hate sleeping bags.
