How do you do it? The sides are too low for a camping wardrobe. What is practical (and looks nice)?

We have a pyramid and tipi, same sloping sides.

We leave our clothes in our bags - north face base camp duffel type bags, waterproof. We have got one each - they make useful backrests and fit beautifully at the bottom of the tent wall.

Just read the "looks nice" bit, sorry, I only do practical grin.

Wow, never even heard of a camping wardrobe before! We just keep everything in our bags too. By the end of the holiday it's not very neat though!

We stick a black bin bag in a corner near the door for dirty clothes. Again, practical not pretty,

By the end of our holiday our back rests are saggy. 😂

We keep clothes in the bag and use a binliner for dirty clothes. Do camping wardrobes exist?

We have a couple of large Really Useful boxes that we can cover with blankets, or we (grown ups) leave everything in our bags. The children leave everything on the floor to maintain that homely vibe!grin

That sounds a lot like our current approach. I just love the idea of a lovely neat tent. I guess it's only an idea.

I have a throw that i throw over suitcases.

We bought a pop up storage basket with a lid from the kids section in ikea to use for dirty washing.

You could buy a couple and place folded clothes into them. They are relatively pretty depending on what look you are going for.

We have a bell tent, but with 3 of 3 and under, it's not as pretty as it could be!

We each of a bag for our clothes and I have a pretty laundry bag for dirty clothes.

We have a cot so I store all of this under the bed and pull them out as needed. I also use an indian beadspread as dust ruffle which conceals the unsightly mess underneath. It helps keep me calm smile

The four of us each have a pop up laundry basket in different colours to put our clean clothes in. I got them from Dunelm. Dirty clothes go in 2 laundry bags (1 for adults & 1 for children) I got from M&S a few years ago.

Best advice I ever had was on here - don't bother with suitcases. Buy a cheap chest of drawers - plastic if you're not fussed about it looking nice (like me) or something prettier but lightweight like a wicker/seagrass once if you are - and pack all your clothes into that and put it the car/van as it is. Lift it out once you get to the campsite and it's job done, no decanting of clothes into something else.
