I’m taking the kids camping later in the summer and my wife, who doesn’t do camping, said the kids have persuaded her to come. However, she has told them she will need a proper bed! Now she had some idea of a Z-bed contraction but I wasn’t sure we could even fit something like that in, what with our tents, dogs and bikes.
When I heard we had a Today’s Special Value offer on an Aerobed, I moved in and managed to get one early. I have had an Aerobed for years but mine was a single ‘one layer’ bed and this one is more like a divan – a ‘proper bed’.
They are child’s play to put up and as you can see from the video, it should only take a few minutes. You don’t even have to read the instructions! It’s great to keep as a spare at home (Jackie saw it and immediately thought it would be perfect for Christmas visitors).
I’m thinking it will be ideal for sleepovers and family visits, but it is also small enough to sling in the car and take camping, if you want a proper bed.
I’ll report back on how my wife gets on with it and show you it in my carry on camping tent, but if you want to find out, more join us on Wednesday 13th all day for a special offer.
