I have washed and dried my RV bedspread twice now.. If you have a front load washer/dryer..like the Whirlpool Duet.. you don't have an agitator or anything like that.. and you don't get the wear and tear on your cloth items. I tried it the first time to just see if it would work because I wash other 'Dry Clean Only' clothing items in my front load washer and they do well..

Good luck..mine is still crisp and just like new...

Thank you for the suggestion Joy..
I will consider trying that, if I don't find a replacement for using every day, while the new bedspread gets packed away.

The cover supplied with our Queen bed must have been made for a King. So DW removed it and made a light quilt to replace it. She also added a lot of color to the quilt to liven the place up a little. Don't you hate everything being the same?

If you ever get up to the factory's stop by and check them out. Some manufacturers have discontinued items, bedding included, along with just about everything else you can imagine that they have changed from for one reason or another. Have seen some great deals, may even find replacement bedding like you have as a spare. May even be worth a call to see if they have such a closeout section.

bedspread that came with the trailer is In a bag in the closet at home. When we sell it or trade it in, we will put it back on. Until then we have spreads that we purchased from the store.

Our dog had an accident on our bed ( guess I should've gotten up). I use my spread that came with our rv (says dry clean). I washed it in cold water on gentle and dried in dryer and came out looking great. I figure I have it, use it.

My tags also say "dry clean", so that dry clean cover is folded and stored. I also found our new cover at Walmart. Our color scheme has a off beigh,cream color. The color was hard to match, but I did find something at Walmart. Who'd guess!

We have the beautiful bedspread in a bag in the attic. When/if we ever need to sell the trailer, it'll go back on the bed. In the meantime, the very practical comforter looks just fine to us.

Most of our friends have their own covers on the bed as well.
