Air Mattress Buying Guide

There are a few things that you need to consider when buying an air mattress to take camping.

Size

Air beds are measured in much the same way as regular beds – i.e. single, double, queen, king etc and this speaks for itself. What you really need to be careful of however is the actual height of the mattress when it is fully inflated. If you are in a tent that has slanted walls then some mattresses can be too tall and come in contact with the walls, even if it technically fits in the floor area.

Pump

Another important factor is the type of pump that it comes with. For larger air beds you will definitely want to look into getting one with an electric pump and deflate mechanism so you can just plug it in and let it go. For smaller air mattresses you may want to settle for a manual foot pump, but you are paying for the luxury of not having to do it yourself with an electric one.

Durability

Durability will often correlate to the price of the mattress you are looking at. Typically the more durable construction will require a higher price, but this is not always the case if there are discounts or sales on at any given time. Our list of reviews at the top includes only mattresses that are available online at heavily discounted prices so go and check them out now to grab a bargain.
