The Bed Spread, Who really uses it?

The DW and I were cleaning up around the stick house and found the big vacuum bag with the gaudy, fu fu bed spread that came with our coach. When we got our current rig, we took the OEM frilly bed spread/comforter thingy off and put it in a vacuum bag, just as we did with our two other coaches.

We had a 'lively discussion' about what to do with the thing. My feeling is take it to Goodwill and maybe someone setting up a bordello will buy it . DW thinks we should keep it in case we sell the coach later on since the 'new owners may want it.'.

My guess is most folks take them off, store them until they sell or trade, put the gaudy thing back on the bed and the next guy goes through the same ritual.

So, what do most folks do? Inquiring minds have to know.

We've done this on numerous occasions.

If it matches the interior decoration, then I'd save it for when you sell it. You won't have to buy a new one to cover the mattress, and it'll look like you've kept the RV in great shape.

The first thing the dealer ask when we traded was if we had the bed spread that came with it. We now save and put on when we trade. Doubt if it would have made a pennies worth of difference had we not had it.

Tossed it out the first day. Then put one of the wifes custom quilts on the bed. We swap it out with another quilt every couple of years. We have been doing this for the last 14 years.

Mine is pretty classy. We use it every day and it looks good! Black with none of the foofoo stuff.

This coach had a hideous one, might be 22 years old as it matches the top piece of the valance. If you think a red and black fence rail kind of design is pretty you would love it.

I would like to reuse the batting as it really looks like an expensive custom spread just ugly. I want to recover the valances, I have an upholstery guy that I think can use it to make a new one if I deconstruct it and we can also recover the valances to match. I had a beautiful spread that was blue and gold I bought many years ago and used it for probably a decade. I would love to have another just like it.

As it is like others, I have it in a bag in the basement, to ugly to use.

Gets used everyday. We are fulltimers and it gets taken off at night and put back on for the day. After twelve years of use, it still looks fairly good and, of course, will go with the coach when the new coach comes in.

I use those in my garden to cover up the tomato plants in the fall to keep them from frost.

I saved ours in case I want to turn the MH into a rolling bordello.
