Over the years I literally feel like I have tried every camp-bed going and I have rarely had a good nights sleep. So I wondered from all the seasoned campers out there, what would be your recommendation for the best camping bed? I have tried blow up lilos (single and double), thermarest and old-style canvas thing where you attach the legs. No luck on any... please help.
check out Exped mattresses. We currently have the usual lightweight one, but have just ordered two extra wide ones, which self inflate, and can be joined together. I'm 7 months pregnant so comfort really is a priority for me at the mo.
They are pricey but there are special deals to be had if you shop around online. And they are so worth it. Good quality materials and they keep you very warm because they have layer of down inside which insulates you from the cold from the ground. (essential in Scotland, where we live and holiday)
Thanks campers.... Goodkate I did catch that on Dragons Den so will have a look at that. I am currently suffering with a cold after my lilo burst in the night on my most recent attempt at camping, so being insulated from the ground is now a priority!! Cheers all
forget air beds if you want warmth as well as comfort.... best bet is a thick self inflating matress (6cm or more). Heartily recomend thermarest base camp but they are ££s, or fat airics (now called dozers) gelert do a thick one too...
We got two Exped down mats as we were camping in April and I refused to be cold! We had to chuck off layers as we were too warm with pjs and duvet and blanket. And they were VERY comfy. Not the cheapest, but if DH and I don't sleep well no-one has a good time so worth it for us.
We use a air bed topped with two Fat Airics (pre Dozer), with a fitted sheet over to keep everything together. Brilliant. For overnighters, the Fat Airics on their own as found the air bed too cold and rolly/bouncy.
