We use ours. It has the hotel corners so it fits the bed. We do take it off at night but back on in the morning along with the decorative sham pillows. Those pillows can hide a lot! Including at least one cat!

The one that came with our 10 yr old coach was like new and is pretty good quality. We dry cleaned it, use it in cooler weather and the DW likes it. I could care less one way or the other.

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.

Ditto... We use ours as delivered. I am a fanatic for keeping things original or as close to it as possible. I like the look and fit of the fitted corner bedspreads. I did however replace the bedspread in our last coach after a couple of years but I ordered a custom fitted RV bedspread & shams in a solid color to match the window treatments. Don't get me wrong we we do make the coach our home it's just that our modifications are behind the scenes!

Our situation is a little different. Our older 1997 Endeavor didn't have the bedspread or shams when we bought it. Didn't care because the valances and headboard were hideous. All of the valances/window treatments have been replaced with oak that matches the cabinets. Headboard is in the dumpster and replaced with artwork. Carpet is now engineered wood flooring. Bedspread and pillows are from HomeGoods. Allergies are now under control ...

Take it off!!! Heaven forbid. DW wouldn't hear of it. We have to take it off at night, put it on in the morning, then put on the 27 pillows,,,,,, What a pain....but it makes her happy and that's what it's all about...(I think there is only 5 pillows)...

Ours in the new bounder is very handsome if I must say so. It will sound gaudy when I tell you its black with gold trim but with the accent pillows and the rest of the decor it ads a touch of class. In our old MH we always used it as a comforter but this one is so nice that we store it away neatly at night and only put it on during the day. As a matter of fact I just had the dealer order another one because the roping on it is coming loose so they are replacing it under warranty.

We took a rectangle of a piece of it that coordinated with the valances and the wife sewed it into a new spread. Not gaudy at all and looks like it came with it... but better.

Don't use it unless we are not camping. Keep it for show if someone wants to see the coach when parked in the driveway! We do use it to make the bed but remove it when it is time to sleep.

Same here, it's very nicely made and not gaudy or foo foo at all, a at least we don't think so.

Use it daily, guess we like that bordello look! Now if I could just get the bed to vibrate for a quarter!
