Hello!

I've looked through all the previous post about these but they are quite old now.

I'm looking for a double sim or two singles that can fit together......please can anyone recommend me one as I just can not decide on any! It's for me and hubby and I have a bad back and I'm pregnant so it needs to be a good one!

Also he's quite tall so I'd like a large one

Prob a silly question but as we've only ever had air beds I was wondering what they are like if the floor is a bit uneven?

Thank you

Purchased a Vango Comfort Double Self-Inflating Mat - 7.5cm deep recently, will be trying it out for the first time this weekend. Will report back.

We have two of the 10 cm Vango comfort self inflating mats as the single are wider than the double when you add them together, they are also as long as I think you will get.
One of the reasons we have two singles (pushed together they don't really separate) is I am a lot heavier than the wife and when I lay on mine I let a lot of air out to get it comfy, which you can do with the 10cm because its so thick, I couldn't do it with the 7.5cm, anyway, the wife hardly lets any air out and if we had had a double we couldn't get them how we like them.
Remember they are bulky compared to airbeds but most campers find them more comfortable and they keep the cold out.
One other thing is you can walk around on them so the bedroom space is still usable.

Thank you, that makes more sense! I def think two singles is the way to go! The vango 10cm seem like a good price too!

We usually use 2 single robens mats. But having tried them on our new posadas camp beds oh said he felt the bar in the slight gap between the mats. So off we went to Atwools and bought the vango comfort 10cm double to put onto the beds......wonderful. so nice to be able to get out of bed like you do at home without crawling off it lol.

Exped Megamat not cheap but worth every penny as anyone that has one will tell you.
The 7.5 cm version comes in a bit cheaper.

Back in 2008 we got 2 of the ThermaRest DreamTime XL's, we did wince at the price 115 each.

They fasten together with there embedded straps to make a seamless double, larger than our bed at home.

The DreamTime is best described as a sleep system, and they definitely do what it says on the tin.

7 years on and they are still like new, and have been perfect for our fortnight camping in the South of France each July.

The DreamTime has now been superseded by the Neo Dream Air, so are probably even better now if that could be possible.

Therm-a-rest Luxury Map 7.5mm SIM for me, so pleased with mine that I bought another one as a spare, in case I have another person to join me on my camping trips.

hi all, sorry to hijack the post - do you think 5cm SIM is good enough for kids? I bought Andes 5cm double mat for the kids but now I'm worried if it's think enough? Or shal I buy them 7.5cm one and keep the 5cm for myself, personally I did find the 5.5 bit hard as I am a side sleeper, but was hoping it could be enought for the kids?

My son sleeps (mostly rolls off ) a 2.5cm SIM and is fine. Kids can sleep on the floor and regularly do in my experience
