just saw these - anyone tried or recommend a similar bed for use in an awning...

When sleeping in our awning we use two thermal self inflating matresses as used by hikers
Its only about an inch thick and rolls up really small
Used with a 3 season sleeping bag it saves on space & weight - works for us
Never used the bed type suggested so will watch feed back with interest

That looks good - there's a lot to be said for sleeping slightly off the floor outside - damp, inspects, cold, lumpy ground etc.

Shame it's a mains-powered pump though, means you are restricted to stopping at campsites with mains hookup.

Looks similar to our pump which also has a 12v adapter for use in a cigarette lighter.

I have started using a thermarest - which I think Scooby is talking about - they are excellent.

I bought a thermarest a few years ago, very good, but a few weeks later Aldi had the same type of thing for about a third of the price. Worth bearing in mind, their camping stuff usually comes out in the spring. If its a mains pump, would a 12v/240v inverter do the job?

I echo dizzylizard - Aldi have some excellent camping stuff - when they have it in. Luckily I got my thermarest from the classifieds in the local paper so it was a bargain. The chap even knocked £5 off without haggling !! Worked out even cheaper than Aldi.

That camping bed looks virtually the same as the one I bought in the summer in Tescos. I bought a single one for £18 plus blow-up mattress to go on it for £8. The single one in the link you posted is £99!!

Shop around people!!
