What Is It

If you like traveling by car or need to drive a lot, this review is certainly worth several minutes of your attention. People who drive a lot often face the situation when they need to spend a night somewhere far from any cities and towns where there are no hotels or motels. Moreover, spending nights in a motel isn't free and you need to pay for it. And in this case, there's just one reasonable way out - sleep right in the car! Thus, using an inflatable bed for car is not only convenient but money-saving as well. Such car beds take very little place in your car and you can easily inflate them with a special air pump. The design of inflated car beds makes it possible to turn the back seat of your car or a trunk into a full-sized bed. If it's a bed for the back seat, it has a special lower inflatable section that fills the space between the back seat and front seats, making a wide sleeping space. Also, a car air bed can be inflated and used as a camping mattress. Most auto car beds are totally waterproof, so you can even put them in water and enjoy floating and sunbathing. In a word, a mattress for car is surely one of the items any camper needs to have.

If you like active leisure and spend a lot of time camping, hiking, fishing, and so on, you certainly need to carry quite a lot of stuff with you, so we recommend you to check out our review of the best Cargo Boxes available on the market. They will help you save up a lot of space in a trunk of your car.

What Features to Compare

Any driver should choose a car air mattress depending on the car he or she owns. Thus, the first thing you need to take into account when making a choice is the Dimensions of the car air bed. If you drive a sedan, hatchback or station wagon, an inflatable air mattress 55'' long will be suitable. As usual, the car air bed of this size is compatible with 95% of such cars. The mattresses are placed on the back seat of your car. However, if you drive a pickup truck or an SUV, the car air bed is placed in the trunk. Such car inflatable beds are slightly bigger - around 70'' and they are wide enough to provide sleeping space for 2 people.

Next, you should pay attention to Design and Package of each air bed for cars so that you know how to use the item properly. The inflatable air mattresses for sedans and hatchbacks have 2 sections and 2 valves. They look like usual mattresses but have a special inflatable space that fills the area between the front seats and the back seat of your car. Thus, you can lie on this kind of mattress without any discomfort - it will not sag under the weight of your body. The beds for SUVs and large off-road cars are designed in a different way - they have 2 or 3 sections/3 valves and you can inflate the sections separately. For example, if you sleep alone, you can just inflate 2 sections and leave the third one flat. Of course, you should pick an inflatable mattress for car considering its package. You don't want to purchase some items separately, right? Thus, pay particular attention to the supply package: it should contain a pump (usually, it's powered from a car socket) with the necessary attachments and a repair kit (it will be useful if you accidentally damage the bed).

Finally, some people don't think it's important but we still recommend you to consider the Material each car air mattress is made of and the Weight Capacity it can withstand. As usual, inflatable furniture, not only for cars but also for beach and camping, is made of PVC fibers. It's a fairly durable and wear-/temperature-resistant material. Also, most car air beds have a special flocked upper surface (sometimes, the flocking is double-sided), which feels like plush when you touch a mattress. Therefore, inflatable beds for cars are extremely comfortable and give you a deep and highly convenient sleep. Also, a flocked surface doesn't allow a bedsheet to slip off at night. Some car air mattresses have a better kind of surface - so-called Oxford, which is made of nylon and polyester. Oxford fabric is slightly rougher to touch but it's very durable. Also, even the best inflatable mattress for cars have a maximum weight capacity, the maximum load they can withstand. You must never overload the car air bed because it can simply blow out. If you wish to have a large mattress that your whole family could use, make sure to pick a car air bed with a fairly high weight capacity.
