Inflatable Beds are the One Portable Bed that is Truly Portable
Choose the Best Inflatable Bed for Your Needs and Lifestyle
Portable beds come in all sorts of shapes and sizes.
There are large luxury camp beds at one extreme, and at the other extreme you have the inflatable bed.
In a lot of ways, the inflatable bed or air bed is the stripped back, minimalist portable bed; it contains the
bare bones of the qualifying criteria for what constitutes a portable bed. Some people may scoff at the air bed's
lack of features. Or they may say that its design is in some way inferior because the mattress is so close to
the ground. But the inflatable bed is actually a very clever solution to the problem of how to make a bed
The fact is that, as anyone who has ever spent a night on one will testify to, you get a great and comfortable
nights sleep on an inflatable bed. As you would imagine, the inflatable mattress is…well…full of air, which makes

for any extra equipment, or without the use of excessive lung power.
Queen and even king size inflatable beds are available as well as inflatable beds with a frame for the best
of both worlds.
Inflatable beds may constitute the low end of the market for portable beds, but they are far from uncomfortable.
