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?

I always buy cheap air beds because whats the point in spending loads to get them damaged, think the last one i bought was 3.00 approx 8 yrs ago..
So I dont think I have your problem....

What are you doing on them to damage them lololol............

not sure id like a camp bed too many hard bits

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 prefer the aluminium framed camp beds (Argos have them forabout 20). Keeps me off the ground and gives storage room under.

I've tried mats, airbeds, mattresses, those low camp beds but didn't like any of them.

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!
