Camping can be a lot of fun and it can be a lot of work. If you are just going for a night and don’t want to pack the tent, sleeping bags, sleep mats, and everything that goes along with it, why not simplify? Use your car as your tent. Packing everything in the car such as food and the grill. This makes it simple to set up camp and will allow you more time to enjoy it. And, if camping isn’t something you do often, this might be a more economical way for you to enjoy the outdoors.
Getting the most out of your time at the campsite and still having someplace comfortable to sleep. What are we talking about here? Well, the inflatable car mattress of course. This is a simple yet effective and ingenious idea.
The Inflatable Car Mattress for SUV’s
Yes, you may have thought about the bed of a Pickup truck, but, they make them now for the backseats of SUVs and Cars too. These are made to have a “leg” go down into the area where the passenger’s feet would be, to level off the entire area of the backseat. And, they are incredibly comfortable and designed with the adult in mind, very roomy. However, most are rated for SUV’s for one person and maybe a small dog.
This would also be great for traveling with a buddy. One can drive while the other one sleeps. Be sure to check the local laws before you go, however, it is illegal in some areas to ride in the backseat without a belt. But, there are whole states that this is perfectly fine. And, this would allow for a good rest to get to the destination without the costly hotel bills.
Mini Van and Entire SUV Backend Air mattress
Some of the air mattresses are made to go over the folded down seats in the back. This allows for much more room. However, to do this all the camping gear would have to fit in the front seat or bring along a small table for things to sit on. This would make enough room in the car to actually use the car as a full-size bed.
Inflatable Car Beds
Inflatable car beds are made for the shape of the backseat, SUV backend or the truck bed. They are made to fit the area comfortably and allow you to sleep without being restricted to just the backseat or car seats. We would recommend getting a 12Volt air compressor to make inflation a breeze. As they will need to be blown up somehow and by mouth is going to take a lot of air. Some can even be turned into couches when not in use in the car as a bed, to enjoy the outdoors.
With these amazing beds, you will not have to worry about the weather and can pick up camp and move pretty easily. Don’t like the sun coming up in your eyes? Flip the car around and fix that issue immediately. They are versatile and so fun to use. Go camping with friends and not waste the entire time setting up.
I have been camping and going outdoors for over 15 years! My first experience was when I joined the scouts. There I learned a lot. From building a campfire to set up a really big tent. Then I know this is awesome. Around 2005 I also started Geocaching. This is a lot of fun. And every time we go camping we look at the map to see if there are some nice caches around.
