    The problem you’ve got here is that airbeds of the ‘inflatable mattress’ type are inherently crap.

    Have a look at these.

    Thermarest luxury map if you’re not on too much of a budget- you can get it for a hundred. They’ve got a big budget sleep system to go with it, which will cost you a fortune, too.
    else the Alpkit Dozer linked above, but that looks out of stock.

    This is what you want for the home!

    My sister bought one of these:

    for her spare room & it’s very comfortable. Not sure of the exact model, but it’s one of the raised ones.

    The ones we use for camping never seem to last long, until we bought a ‘lilo’ style one from Argos.

    only thing is it has a very narrow inflation hole so takes bloody ages to inflate & deflate.

    that’s the conclusion I’ve come to.

    I must add, it needs to be Mrs Smiffy compatible, too.

    I’ve got an aerobed with rechargeable pump which is super comfortable. On the downside, there’s a lot of air in it and it can feel a bit cold on chillier nights. A nice thick sleeping bag should resolve that though!

    gelert ones are nice and cheap on ebay. Seem to last me a year or 2 then get a slow leak and I just buy another

    I want an airbed for car-camping and guest-stopovers at home.

    I’ve had no end of Millets cheapies and they always end up going down after a few uses, but so slowly it’s a pig to find the leak.

    Is there a decent one out there that anyone is aware of?

    The trouble is the night it gets the slow leak has a miserable and cold morning and doesn’t help Mrs. Smiffy’s demeanor. I’m happy to spend a bit more and have some assurance that it’ll stay up.

    thermarest, and you can clip 2 together to make the double. That’s my plan (same issue with (better)half).

    Been using a Thermarest for 11 years now. Bit priceier but you get what you pay for I suppose.

    I bought one of these recently and it’s the 1st airbed we’ve had that stays fully inflated through the night, I have only had cheap airbeds before though.

    gelert ones … last me a year or 2 then get a slow leak and I just buy another

    That’s pretty much their pricing model, in my experience.
