What do you do about pillows when camping?

In the tent we use some homemade cut down pillows (1/2 the size with their own pillow cases) made by my wife - we are going away for 10 nights soon and my wife wants to take her full size pillow off the bed! I'm not sure I will get it in :?...

'cause I know what will happen if she takes hers then the kids will want theirs, and they already want to take a zoo load of stuffed toys!

I don't take anything from the house. The CT is fully set up totally independent of the house. Too easy to forget something when you do this.

Spoil yourself and buy pillows and bedding totally for the CT. Make the bed up in the camper and leave it made up.

If it is a soft floor model then you will be extremely surprised at what you can leave on top of the bed and still pack it up.

The worst day camping still beats the best day working

yer another vote for leaving mine in the camper trailer with sheets and all, take clean sheets each time and at the end of the camp we change them all over so they are clean for next time :-)
