wow, maybe mine was just a bad quality one, but DH and I couldn't stand it when trying to use it for camping. Anytime anyone moves in the bed, it's like a roller coaster, and even right after we pump it up, if we both lay in it, we end up rolling onto each other in the middle of the bed. We found some camping mats at costco a few months ago, and used those for our last camping trip and slept so much better, that we won't be bothering with the air mattress anymore.

We're thinking about getting one of the aerobeds from costco once we pull the plug and perhaps move around abit. Another option would be to get one of the thicker thermarests and sleep on those.

I agree with the mats instead of aero-bed idea that two posters advocated on this thread. Mats are handy, also, in that after you sleep you can put them away much more easily, getting use of the space during the day. Sleeping on the Aero stuff seems more like sleeping on Jello.

My favorite bed to sleep in in the whole world is one that my mom got me at Bed Bath and Beyond years ago, and I have left it at her place for my visits there. It is like three thin couch cushions attached together. The three cushions fold up into the space of one couch cushion in about 3 seconds. The cushions are about 4 inches thick.

When I get up in the morning, it takes about 30 seconds to fold the sheets, fold up the bed, and put everything into a corner or closet. Same goes for making the bed in the evening.

When I sleep at my best friend's place, he has the same thing but a bit thicker and also wider, enough for two people. It is also very comfortable and easy to put away.

I am okay with air mattresses, but do find the plastic makes me a little clammy when I sleep (I sweat easily). My inlaws have the tri-fold cushions also, and aside from having to get up from 4-inches off the ground, I like them a lot. They are definitely more comfortable and more breathable than the air mattress.

Not sure what sleeping on jello is like. I'll have to try it just for comparison.
