Hi we currently use duvets and sheets but when it comes to storing them in van, need advice on what to keep them in to protect from damp etc. I dont want to take a hoover to use those space saver bags, and was wondering what everyone else uses.

We use some storage bags bought from our local high street dry cleaners. They are sold as duvet storage bags and hold a double duvet and 2 pillows in each. They are made of 'fabric' but are easy to put a hole in if you are a bit too keen when fastening the zip. They keep the bedding clean.

Lakeland do a version of the vacuum bags but you don't need a vacuum - simply roll the air out.Excellent bags, simple to use and guaranteed for 5 years.They roll down to a vey slim size, a brilliant space saver and completely airtight so no damp.
I made some 'stuff bags' from shower curtains, cheap as they come at around 1.99/2.99 from Home & Bargain, B&M's. You can make them as big or as small as you like, and use the eyelet holes at the top with cord or thick trainer shoelaces to tie up. If you want to make more from the rest of the curtain with no eyelets, just sew in a hem, leave open at one end and thread a cord through the hem. Or get an eyelet maker/punch thingy from ebay. I bought two curtains and made three stuff bags. Sonny Jim nicked the medium sized one for his camping outfit! LOL.
I have a small one for dirty washing, and a large one which holds my sleeping bag and pillows. I just roll the big one up and keep it under the seats during the summer, in winter, sling them on top of the wardrobe.
