I guess we're part of the minority that actually uses it as a comforter. Matches the window treatments, so it looks good when the bed is made. Since our rig is an 03', I guess the people before us either never slept in the bed... Or do what most folks on here do... Thanks!

Ours is not gaudy and matches the decor but we have a dog and we would take it off every night then back on in the morning. Finally it is packed away for when ever we sell the MH.

The other thing is that our decor is nice but kind of bland so we wanted color in the coach. So we use more colorful durable bed spreads and furniture throws and pillows to add some contrast and interest.

Every RV we've owned, the OEM bedspread & matching pillow covers were taken off as soon as the RV was brought home from the dealer, put in a "spacebag" & stuck on a shelf at home. I put a nice quilt (much lighter weight) on the coach bed. The bagged items go back on when we sell.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Like njs42, we are a little younger and wanted a little more motion, vibrance, and color in the bedroom. The original bedspread went to Goodwill. We had valances and pillows made to match the new bedspread. \ken

When we bought our new to us motor home, the bedspread and pillow shams were missing. Since the decor of our unit was one of the main selling features to my wife, this was a big deal. Before, during, and after the closing we asked where they were. They told us they would locate them for us. After about a week, they nonchalantly told us they couldn't be located.

We made a huge stink and they ordered replacement that would have cost us more than $500. Like the two other tastefully decorated motor homes we had before this one, we use them every day. If our motor home was decorated to look like a bordello, we probably wouldn't have bought it.

I think the reason why they want them for when they resell is that like when selling a house it's part of the "staging". It matches the decor (or should). It might not suit your taste but many people do buy major purchases with their emotions. (Oh I need four rings on the front of my car, it makes me so I can beat Andretti around the ring I swear!). A non-covered mattress looks well you know? incomplete. A quilt may be nice for a down to earth fella and lassy but that DINK who has to exceed the Jones, (My S-Class is bigger then your extended S-Class because it's mine!) well it just doesn't match those red lights!

Taste is a personal thing. Some people are good. Some aren't. Since our unit is a family unit we last week bought some brighter (simple geometric pattern) bed in a bag for the rear and two complimentary comforters/cases/sheets/blankets) for the rear. Since in this household that is important to one or more people. Some people believe in colour-theory, others believe in the OEM look, others want it to reflect their personality, others change it when the mood suits them i'm sure. I think they like them because it gives the coach a consistent and finished look. Do you really think the dealers principal has the time or wants to expend the effort finding something that suits the unit and its potential buyer? Would you trust your salesman to decorate your rig? It's one of the easiest things to personalize. But selling a rig without a made bed doesn't make it look complete. That's my theory and i'm sticking with it. (Like how people vision sticks and bricks and can't get over the decorating taste of the current owner, it's Louis the XIV and I like Queen Anne! Can't live here, no way the furniture will go with the current owners and i'll bring mine with me when I move in would it?

X2 but we don't like the new one that is coming. It will probably go into storage, the put back on when we sell the MH. DW like a bedspread on during the day, so she will buy one she likes while we have this MH.

While it seems the majority store the OEM bed cover for a potential sale/trade later on, some folks do actually use them. No, our coach is not decorated like a bordello but the bedspread, like most we've seen, is just not to our tastes. However, the dogs would probably love it .

So, I guess the DW wins. We will vacuum bag it and keep it for whenever we are ready to let the coach go.

Ours is home in a plastice storage bag and if we sell the coach, well I suppose it will be put back in for the next owner. It coordinates the interor decor so I guess that would be best.

Wifey insists on making the bed completely every morning. Original spread and sham look nice as they match the head board and window trim. The spread, sham pillows all 6 of them , go under the bed for the night. I installed new 150# lifts on the bed so I don't need to be involved.

We use it to cover our indoor patio furniture while we are traveling in our MH with a fancy cover my BH put on. Will go back on when trading in.

We use our, didn't think we would...
Things we like about it:
Tasteful design that matches interior very well
Custom hemmed corners help making the bed a snap
Things we didn't like but have let go:
Dry clean only
Couple small stains (glue?) upon delivery, we protested but no joy, still there.
Stiff satin material very noisy when exterior of spread moves against itself at night.
