What does everybody find is the best type of bed for camping? I have a bad back and would love to take my memory foam mattress, but out of the question.

Coming back to camping after a few years the issue of getting up from an air bed on the ground was an issue. The other benefit of beds is that you can can use the space underneath for storage.
We use self inflating mattresses and actually manually inflate further to make them more comfortable as required.
The other thing to do is to go a big retailer with beds on display and just try lying on them to see how they feel.

I know that some of us think that camping shops are 'essential' shops and an essential journey but I'm not sure that with this Covid19 thing it really is!!

Think you may have to wait a while (no idea how long).

Does everything have to be about Covid-19?

When you get a chance I would go to a fishing tackle shop and try a carp bed.
These are not cheap but are designed to be comfortable.

Did you mean SIM as in Self Inflatting Mattress?

This is our set up using the decathlon bases and outwell SIMS. The bases clip together and a fitted sheet holds it all together.

Really comfy and a perfect bed if you've got the space

we’ve got the decathlon air bases. not used them camping, but eldest is here from london and trapped by lockdown, and seems to think they’re pretty comfy even for, as it currently stands, 3 weeks of solid use…
