Hints on how to get longer out of this bed,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Coleman Raised Quickbed Queen, Double Airbed (Sports)
This is a great bed, just remember on your first inflation of this bed when using an electric pump the air that comes out of the pump is warm air due to being compressed so don't fully inflate the bed, leave the bed squidgy to touch until the air inside the bed cools. Then top up as needed. The warm air will stretch the PVC if blasted in until the bed is really firm. During the day ( especially if hot weather) let the bed rest at squidgy stage then top up in the evening again don't top up until firm until your ready to get into bed. Airbeds all lose air due to temperature changes , you will notice that people who have used these beds for home use have very little air loss due to stable tempratures in homes but campers seem to need to top up the beds more regularly. Another tip is to buy a thin memory foam topper for this bed it will feel like a real bed and keep out the cold air feeling next to your skin.use a flat sheet which will hang down the sides of the bed and deter accidental snags to the PVC. Try not to use sleeping bags use a summer quilt, less chance of zips digging into PVC during the night . I've had my Coleman bed for three years and each camping trip we have stayed a fortnight sometimes 4 nights or weekends so it's done a really good job as it took two tall adults and a dog ! I don't bother trying to get the air bed back in its bag I use an old duvet cover and place it inside of that and it just lies on the top of all the camping gear in the car . Once home I store it flat on the spare bed. I hope this is some help to those of you buying an air bed ,just follow these few simple rules and you won't be disappointed, what you will get is a brilliant nights sleep.
