please help - i have a mental block against both these things, but i need something that my parents or we can sleep on comfortably. i don;t want a bulky sofabed at all, and dh hates futons for some illogical reason. is an aerobed worth the money?

What about getting a daybed - size of a single, but with second mattress underneath that wheels out to make a double?

I hate airbeds find them really uncomfy esp with another person.

I second CSWS, and would get a rollaway bed

We bought a fabulous one from here last year, but they don't have it any more. This is the only one I can find on their site, but I did find them in lots of other places when I was looking. You can often get optional 'backs' for them too.

thank you! can't sleep - yours are lovely but out of my price range. suew, i love the eclick one, but its a bed, rather than a chair. will ponder.

oooh i've just had a thought, is there such a thing as a double mattress on a frame that can roll under our existing double bed, and be rolled out when needed? does that exist?

Another vote for an Aerobed - we've had blow up beds before which were pants, but the Aerobed is reeeeeeally comfy plus it self inflates and deflates and is well worth the extra £££ IMHO.
