We put all our dirty laundry in a pop up laundry basket stored in the shower. When it is nearly full I transfer it into black bags and store it in the back section of our pick up vehicle.

Me too this is what we do .

We use a swing top plastic bin. It sits in the awning or in the shower cubicle if no awning.

I have a laundry bag bought from B&M that lives in the wardrobe but we do tend to do no more than 4 days in the van think i probably need to think of something else for longer trips but the bag is very good and strong and i use it for transporting clean clothes in it was 2.99

I use a pop up washing basket. You can get them from the pound shops sometimes. It either lives in the awning if its up or in the shower cubicle. If im only away for the weekend though I just put it in one of these fabric bags for life in the shower cubicle so its tucked away and can just be chucked out when I need to use the shower.

We use a large home made laundry bag - made from an old polycotton sheet, with a drawcord at the top.

When packing for a trip, it holds all the clean towels and bedlinens and is packed in the boot of the car to save weight in the van.  Then once we are in the van it is emptied and left in the shower cubicle ready to hold dirty laundry.  All dirty laundry is brought home in it.  Its usually the first thing to get unpacked from the car boot and taken straight to the door of the washing machine.

We use a pop up wash basket in conjuction with the big Lidl bags and throw them in the shower. The day before we go home we wash and dry as much as we can on site to save the grief when we get home.

We have a massive pop up one made for garden rubbish.

It sits in the corner of the awning opposite the door and we are all quite good shots with top half of the door open we don,t have to leave the van.


Haha - that made me laugh, Andy.  We do the same - throwing our pants in the direction of the laundry bin and hoping for the best!

We have a small vax Hoover that travels in its original box, that comes out of the box and black bags with the dirty washing go into the box.

After years of bin bags etc, we now have a fairly large blue flat canvas type bag suspended on a coat hangar. There is a small gap at the side near the top for depositing dirty gear and a zip at the bottom for releasing it. Easy to stow and empty as required.
A couple of years ago friends got home to discover that their laundry was missing, the black bag it was in had been binned along with the other rubbish!! A lesson learned the hard way!!
