I'd recommend this to anyone whose old bones need a comfortable bed when camping.
on 29 July 2015
Had similar item bought 20 years ago, but it got lost when moving house. It was real canvas, this is some sort of plastic version like the car seat protectors for dogs which crumble & make a mess after a few months. The old one was slightly wider, this is only just barely wide enough, & I'm not a large person. The old one was also slightly easier to get the end poles into position. I'd willingly swap this for my old one, but having said that, this still beats camping mats (too hard & uncomfortable) or air beds (apt to puncture when an enthusiastic canine tries to sneak under the covers) hands down. Feels springy and comfortable provided you don't try to curl up (the metal side poles aren't soft!!). With the addition of an insulating camping mat "mattress" it's even comfortable in this year's "summer"! I'd recommend it to anyone not in the first flush of youth!
