    Where do you store your Raskelf Duvalay because there are two big to store above the cab

    We only have one because SWMBO prefers an ordinary duvet (despite the fact it takes me longer to make up the bed!). I put mine in it's Raskelf bag and then it stands on the loo!

      We've got a Dimension which is the predecessor to the R30 and we manage to cram two duvalays up there plus two large folding chairs, pillows and other bits and bobs too. I would have thought the luton area of the R30 was roughly the same size as ours, you obviously aren't pushing hard enough.

      We have taken the bar that goes across the front of the luton off, as that helped a lot.

        We picked up the R30 last thursday the luton on the R25 was higher then the R30 i managed to push two duvalays in the luton plus all the pillows and all of the rest the stuff I think we will have to put them in the toilet ,but i will have another go

          hello Brian i dont know if i can help at all but will try ...we dont have an R30 but the R20 but we do have Two duvalays and have had them for several years in fact so pleased with them at the Malvern show went to buy some more covers( pair in the wash pair on)ang got talking to lots of customers worried about storing them so could only say how we do pack ours.its not really a visual thing....dont look....either roll or fold your choice...and push slowly ......more and more its a steady process...go on keep pushing like a Rugby front row and you will amaze yourself what little space they go in and same with the pillows its all about pressure and getting the foam to squash down and down.The funny thing was the duvalay sales rep didnt want us to leave after we more or less convinced several people to buy them.........i hope they like them...what am i saying ...bound to love them.An hour later we walked we walked past the stand again and he shouted out hey you two have you got a spare half hour ? We dont put them in the bags but just as they are and they squeeze down in to the very front of our over cab Luton with lots of space for other things.......Mark and Shirley.love duvalays...love zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.......sleep

            When designing new motorhome ensure suitible space to store the duverlays.... They are becoming a must have...

              But dont you just feel totally exhausted after all that squeezing? I know I do. I feel as though I have gone a couple of rounds with Mike Tyson, and the good news is I can do it all again the next day

                Would self vacum bags not help, you know the sort with a one way valve to let air out. They take less room up and keep stuff fresh if you leave them in the camper between trips. I'm going to get some for our sleeping bags.

                  Vacuum bags are ok, but you wouldn't want to use them regularly each night when on a trip, better for long term storage. The Duvalays are much heavier and more bulky than a sleeping bag. It is the sheer size and weight of them that is a bit overwhelming!

                      I think the secret is to roll them as tight as you can, we have luggage straps that we put round them and tighten as tight as possible.

                      Got the luggage straps from the pound shop, can't remember how much they were.

                        Try a couple of Compression straps that may help. ....
                        I would have thought careful folding or rolling would have been the answer

                          We roll ours tightly and put into very shiny plastic bags (Lakeland extra large carrier bags are perfect) and they then slide into the luton. We have also removed the bar across the front of the luton and nothing slides out. Well, they are all very tightly packed in.
                          I will post a photo as soon as John has downloaded it from his camera.

                          The bags do not completely cover the duvalays, but the shiny plastic seems to do the trick.

                              Photo now posted.

                              Tip from John (chief bedding folder) - push the duvalays into the luton non-zip end first as that is easier to squash.
