Hi folks,

Having recently sold our camper van (I know, bad timing) we're looking for the ideal camp beds for our set up. I suffer from a bad back from time to time so need something comfortable. We have memory foam toppers. Wondering what everyone's experiences are?

This is what I would buy if I were to buy a camp bed myself:

Outwell Posadas Single Camp Bed

I had their Laguna Hill XL camp bed when I was camping under canvas, and found it could difficult to assemble due to the need to pull the shorter poles into place.

The Posadas is easier to assemble in comparison.

I used a 7.5cm thick self-inflating mattress on top of my Laguna Hill XL camp bed, and the set up was very comfortable.

Hi, it depends on what you new setup is. I can recommend getting a thick self-inflating mat. I find these to be as comfortable as my bed at home and unlike camp beds don't have stiff parts and don't make a noise as you move. Best of luck.

It should be noted that although camp beds are raised from the floor and easier to get in and out for those with mobility issues, they may not fit inside tents with sloping sides.

Thank you guys. We have an Outwell Nevada M tent. I'd heard camp beds with mattress on top were a good combo. Was looking at the Decathlon Quechua inflatable camping bed base. Wondered how they compares with the Posadas?

We have two like these, with SIMs on top, that came from Aldi. Very comfortable.

Aldi donít seem to have them, but the image is from here, £40.

Absolutely love the Quechua bed bases, really comfy with a SIM on top (although I'd be reluctant to recommend the Outwell Sims as ours has just sprung a leak after less than a couple of weeks of use). The Quechua bases are great though, and comfier than the bed at home
