Deluxe BYO Bed, Twin
Extremely Comfortable & Reliable
I have been sleeping on the bed for over a week due to the inability to climb stairs due to a broken foot. I have severe hip bursitis and I find that this bed is great for sleeping on my sore hips. I have a 4" memory topper on my regular bed but my hips still hurt! I am at the upper limit for weight on this bed and I have not had problems. I also find that I can sleep on my back for most of the night. Again something that does not happen in my regular bed. I toss and turn all night and have had no problems with the mattress shifting. Each night I add some air - nnot much to make sure that it is fully inflated. There is very little air lost overnight.
My only complaint is that if you sit on the edge of the bed for a period of time, the mattress will shift. I find that it is best to sit down as close to the middle of the bed and not linger on the edge.

I bought this bed because I live between my parents houses and didn't want to have to buy a real bed. I might sleep in it five to ten nights a month, at most, though. Depending on how long it would be until I slept in it again, I leave it inflated or deflate it. One morning when I was inflating it I noticed that one of the seams between the bump had let go or something because there was a huge lump in it that made it difficult to sleep on. I could only sleep on my side on one side of the bed. I had misplaced the receipt and was just dealing with it until I realized that it must have also put a hole it in when it popped so I would wake up on the frame after six hours of sleep. I found the receipt and exchanged it. Hopefully it was a fluke and this one works better.
Also, my grandmother has the same bed for when guests come over, and it has started to deflate during the night, as well.

Broke, returned after 2 weeks
To start with, the very low quality pump that comes with the matress could not stand the first inflation, that was already a bad sign, however we decided not to return the whole thing just for the pump; we bought then a coleman pump and used it to inflate the matress. Once inflated, it was used by a regular size adult, who claimed it was not very comfortable, since the middle of the matress tended to sink, no matter how inflated the matress was, and that is due to the poor support the frame offers. Also, It made a lot of noise when turning. After two weeks of use, one of the divisions between pockets inside the matres simply exploded in a loud bang (I cans assure you the matress was not overinflated) and then and it was just impossible to sleep on it after that. I would NOT recomend this matress at all.

We keep a couple of these for the times when we get more guests than beds.
So far has been a good investment, nothing broken and works well, for example, no air leaks.
I like the compact storage size.

I bought this bed a year and a half ago, but used it only 4 times. My dad came for a visit, sat down on it, and two of the connection joints that make up the telescopic frame broke. My dad weighs 170 pds and he's 75 years old, so no, he didn't jump onto the bed. Of course the warranty had expired, so I had to purchase replacement pieces from Northpole...shipping included it came to $36.00. Now I have to figure out how I'm going to get the broken pieces off and get the new joints on because they're riveted. Would not invest in a bed like this again.

Great portable bed
This bed was amazing and served its purpose... it was easy to set up and very comfortable once I had set it up. No real problems with it and I would recommend it for sure. The suitcase is also a plus because you don't have to worry about it breaking and losing your bed.

The best thing since sliced bread!
I bought this twin sized bed 9 years ago and I have camped with it every year without fail. This year the air mattress finally died but that is nothing short of spectacular because air mattresses just simply do not last that long. The normal life expectancy is 1-2 years so I feel that I have certainly gotten my money's worth out of this, and then some.
Regardless of the fact that I have to replace the mattress, the collapsible accordion frame is still solid, packs neatly into its own carrying case and provides a comfortable sleeping experience in the great outdoors.
Lightweight, portable and space-saving I cannot recommend this product more highly for either camping or indoor use.
Truly a wise investment.

Great Spare Bed
In our previous home we had a guest room for the in laws and guests. It was a small room and we didn't want to spend alot of money on a new bed and mattress. So this was a great buy. It lasted for well over a year and saw quite a bit of use. Finally the frame was done in because of excessive weight, (combined weight shouldn't exceed 400lbs). It was easy to set up, the pump is very durable and the bed has a nice tilt feature at the front. It also looks great. The complimentary blanket is forgettable...

I purchased this product when I went away for school and it is still used today. I used it day in and day out for 4 years at university. It is very portable and easy to set up. It is now used for guests and camping purposes. Thatâ€™s right, no more sleeping on the hard tent floor for.
