    We have two single duvets that came in the usual zip up bags which we keep them in..
    But of course they haven't lasted long..
    So can anyone advise on where to buy and recommendations of what to get ?

    Current ones as above have zips but it's a fight getting them in but once in they are nice and compact and store neatly under the sofa.

    Thanks !!

    Years ago I bought kit from bags4everything but being such good quality have not had to buy more for several years. I presume they are still going? they used to attend every motorhome show

    Thanks.. They are much like the ones we have. Was looking for something durable that will last. Those look decent for the money but to similar in quality to the ones we have just now which have split along the zips. They were after all just the ones they came in .

    We've found storing linen and bedding a bit of a challenge as we mainly have overhead lockers which are not very big.
    I bought two underbed plastic storage bags, it's quite easy to fold the single duvets in to them, then we store them vertically in the shower.

    Edit: just seen you say you want something durable, don't know how long the storage bags are likely to last but can't see why they wouldn't last a reasonable time.

    Now back in Sarfend for a couple of months.
    I just stuff mine into a canvas holdall type travel bag - good strong zip and made of a nylon-canvas stuff so won't tear or crack. £4.99.

    We have two summer weight duvets for use in the van. Jill sewed Velcro to the corners so that we can use them singly or fastened together. When not in use the spare one is kept in a bag with a drawstring fastening which we originally bought years ago to keep a sleeping bag in (it may have actually come with a sleeping bag).
