Hi Frazzle. Aldi and lidl do very cheap sims. We actually use a double lilo type air bed on top - The Kampa Bliss.

Bob is your extra tall but posh airbed warmer than normal? Is it better for those with bad backs? Do you still have the bounce factor when one adult gets on the other bounces off as we have in our airbed? (I know that you do not camp with Mrs Bob but some people use their camp beds at home too as a spare). What dimensions are this bed, please?



I have the Tesco raised single airbed with pump. I originally bought the double version but found it took up too much room in my tent, so took it back and exchanged it for the single...so certainly not a posh one.

With regards to the bounce factor I will let you know if I ever get lucky

It is certainly better for my back than my previous camp bed which was only about 2'6" (76cm) wide. The airbed is described as 47cm high by 97cm wide by 196cm long but I seem to recall in reality the height and width was very slightly less than the given figures. I can't remember the exact size.

With regards to the warmth, I think all airbeds need to be well insulated below and above. I have a tent carpet below and two fleece blankets on top but I use a fisherman's 4 season sleeping bag so warm as toast in any case.

I have just read the instructions and it says maximum user weight is 75kg and I weigh about 79kg so I am risking life and limb sleeping on it and the bounce factor could be quite high if it blows

at you Bob. I'd love to see what happened when your 'not posh' double height airbed blows. Don't forget to film it and put it on you tube!! Imagine how many followers you would have.

Thank you Ewen and Bob. I have also noticed that Gary (the one of Cross Camping Method) has a SIM website - though not at Lidl & Aldi prices! I guess you get what you pay for, and I'd like a good night's sleep.

I have been thinking about using an electric blanket on the airbed but if the air heats up I could end up floating at roof level
