We have had 2 air beds, not cheap ones and both have had leaks. (We aren't rough with them honest!). Now deciding whether to buy another air bed, does anyone know of one that is leak proof? or to go to camp beds? Any sugestions? Is there such a thing as a double camp bed?
Air bed pack size will be smaller - an important point for those challenged by the weight and size of camping gear. A camp bed offers some under bed storage - useful if one is trying to keep lots of gear in a tent.
i have never ever camped in a camp bed or air bed... its rollmat/sleeping mat for me everytime even when others in my tent are on beds i am there with me trusted roll mat, i love them just enough comfort without feeling like you arnt camping

im not so dainty, see gallery, (im the one in the middle) and iv not tried one yet, but if you do a search on this site they get really good reviews. think the fat ones out of stock till the autumn tho
I alternate between an airbed and a campbed. I have problems with my back and this does the trick. We store the one not in use in the other inner and just swap them when needed. I bought rubberised canvas airbeds from Argos and they are really good. The campbed is a pole-frame with 4 W-shaped legs and I find it really comfortable. I saw a campbed at the weekend that was like a Layze-boy - it looked absolutely fantastic but at £60 I'll keep to the airbed/campbed trick!
