Why Camping Air Beds Are For You

Camping air beds easily solve one of the most common worries I hear from new campers, which is, "I can't go camping, I can't sleep on the floor!" Well, with a comfortable camping air bed mattress the answer is don't have to!!! From the first time I went camping I have always used a camping mattress and now we actually own at least four...everyone in our family sleeps on an air mattress, queen for my husband and me, and a twin-size mattress for each one of the kids.

There are so many types of camping air beds available for you that the hardest part is not going to be the floor, it is going to be choosing the best camping air mattress to suit your needs.

Inflatable air mattress bed, air bed sleeping bag combination, the self-inflating Aero bed air mattress, an air bed mattress in a truck...the possibilites for portable air bed mattresses and comfort while camping are wide enough to find a choice that perfectly meets your needs. Once again, your budget, your camping needs, and your comfort limits will determine what kind of camping mattress you end up choosing.

Here is a brief overview of several different kinds of camping air mattresses:

Traditional Camping Air Beds

The blow up air mattress is the traditional portable air bed mattress that has been around for a while. This is going to be the cheapest air mattress you can get, but is just as good as any of the others. While the price is a plus, -the drawback to this mattress would be the method of putting air into this inflatable air mattress bed.....with good old fashioned lung power..although that sure beats the alternative of sleeping on the hard ground.

Fortunately, one of the best accessories invented to avoid you having to blow all that hot air is the electric mattress pump. Plug into the wall, plug into the car, or battery operated, one of these will meet your needs. These are relatively inexpensive, usually $20-$30 depending on the model. Use this to blow up your basic camping air mattress and you are all set.

Easy Inflating With The Aero Bed Air Mattress

Most people have heard of the AeroBed, the inflatable air mattress bed that comes with the built-in inflation pump. Once known as the instant guest bed, there is now an Aero camping air mattress, made a little more rugged and tough for you to take camping, but just as convenient and easy to blow up as the home models.

Air Bed Mattress Frames Will Keep You Off The Floor Altogether!


If, like me, and you have difficulty getting off the floor, or just don't want to sleep on the floor, several manufacturers make an inflatable mattress bed frame.

A perfect fit for many types of portable air mattresses. Some models pair an air mattress with frame together as one unit, but if you already have a camping air mattress you might want to look for just an air mattress stand to place it on. These fold up for easy portability.

Truck-Bedz, The Perfect Truck Bed Air Mattress

Don't want to set up a tent? Truck-Bedz is specifically a truck bed air mattress, made especially for the bed of pick-up trucks, or to fit in the backs of SUVs, vans, and minivans. These rugged and sturdy camping air beds come in different sizes, already available to custom fit over a dozen different vehicle makes and models.

You can use these with or without a truck tent, which is a type of tent you can buy that fits right on the back of your pickup, SUV, or minivan...pretty convenient isn't that???
