    Hi,

    We're off camping this weekend and my air bed has split, so I need a replacement. I want something pretty good, so what do you recommend?

    I've got quite a big tent (sleeping area is 215cm x 180cm) but I need something fairly compact to fit in the boot of my TVR.

    I'm looking at either the Outwell Flock Excellent King, or the Outwell Cimelia Self Inflating Mattress system. I like the look of the self inflating mattress, but I'm concerned at the pack size! It appears to be three items, two mattresses and a memory foam cover, all in a bag which is quite large. I wonder if I could fit the individual items in the TVR boot, as the package size is too big.

    Has anyone used either of these?

    Thanks,

    Dan

    Not on your list but aldi are doing a standard Intex double for £12.99 if they have any left. 137cm by 191cm by 22cm. I won't get a chance to test it until the weekend after next if you want a personal review :)

    We've had an Intex double (the one with an inflatable bed-frame-like-thing) for a good few years now, gets used mostly as a spare bed; no complaints at all, in fact it's more comfortable than most cheaper bed/mattress combos.

    The double, self inflating mattresses aren't small. Our 10cm vango one rolls up and is a cylinder about 40cm diameter and about 70cm long. Don't really know how big the tvr boot is but it completely fills our mini convertible's boot
