Choosing A Camp Bed

Are you someone who struggles to get a good night of rest when camping? Uncomfortable? Too hot or freezing cold? Sleeping in a tent (or in the outdoors for that matter) can definitely take some getting used to but with the right bedding, you may be able to create the ultimate snooze-zone for you to nod off in.

A part of selecting the right bedding is knowing a little about where and when you will be going into the outdoors, as different styles can suit certain situations and climates better. 


Stretchers are an ideal sleeping option for many reasons. They not only elevate you off the cold, damp ground, they protect you from sharp rocks, sticks and any creepy crawlies. Unlike some bedding, stretchers can be used all year round. The airflow beneath the bed allows you to stay cooler in summer and for those winter trips, simply place a self-inflating or foam mattress on top to create a barrier from you and the cool breeze. The Easy Fold Stretcher is a comfortable, sturdy and totally fuss-free option – set up literally takes 10 seconds! 

Air Mattress

If you are looking for home-like comforts and have a decent sized tent, an air mattress may be just for you. The Single Height Velour Air Mattress offers reliability and comfort at an affordable price. Special air zones absorb and disperse movement to avoid disturbing others while the boxed wall with inner coil construction provides proper back support. Most air mattresses will fit Australian standard size bed linen. Tip: During winter, a blow-up air mattress may work against you as there is nothing but cold air between you and the ground, allowing the coolness of winter to pass straight through.

Bunk Bed

Does your tent often feel cluttered and unorganized when camping with the whole family? If you said yes, you may want to consider investing in bunk beds! Featuring an anti-tip design and top bunk guard rails, the Deluxe Double Bunk Bed is not only a big space saver, but it also provides a safe, comfortable nights’ sleep for the kids. The best part? As the little ones get older you can unstack the bunk to create two individual stretchers.

Self-Inflating Mat

Camp mats like the Nomad Bonded range are the perfect blend of lightness, comfort and quality, making them ideal for those little weekend getaways. With a twin, self-inflating valve system, inflating and deflating your mat has never been quicker or easier. Their compact size also makes them great space savers when transporting! Tip: Place onto a stretcher in winter for a more comfortable, warm nights’ sleep.

Premium Camp Bed

The RV Rhino Bed is a little bulkier than other camp beds but will certainly ensure you have a snug, restful nights’ sleep thanks to the super-soft, (removable) high-density foam padding. Ideal for those looking to spend more than a few nights in one spot or for use as a spare bed at home.
