Camping Air Mattress and Ground Hazard Pain

Jun 17, 2008
What is your favorite time during camping? Many campers agreed that there is nothing better than lying down on a camping air mattress, when sleeping out on a camping trip, knowing that you will not wake up with the imprint of a rock or stick in your back in the morning.

Before choose mattress size, you should remember to match the size of the mattress with the size of the tent and the number of people who will be on the same mattress.

Many of the single mattresses are a one-chamber bladder designed to simply elevate the camper from the ground. This type of mattress has one major disadvantage: getting one small hole will result the camper sleeping on a piece of plastic on the ground.

Air mattress that has multiple chambers that allow the mattress to remain essentially inflated is the best type of camping air mattresses. You can still use the mattress even if a hole develops in one of the chambers.

Before going, you need to prepare how the camping air mattress will be inflated. While some campgrounds have air compressors for just that reason, many do not. Besides, lugging a large air mattress to the dedicated compressor and back can be a trial of its own. You can consider bringing a foot pump, since it makes inflating a camping air mattress easier and will not require someone to manually inflate one by blowing into it for hours.

There are tire inflators that plug into the 12-volt power plug in most vehicles. Many of these pumps can be connected to a camping air mattress and inflated in minutes. Larger mattresses require 120-volt pumps, which are also available at stores. If the campsite being used is equipped with electricity, they can make short work of inflating the camping air mattress.

You also need to ensure that you have already checked out the area for sharp objects that can puncture the outside allowing air to escape throughout the night, before placing the mattress on the ground. You should avoid a place with many rocks around it to place your air mattress. Even if you sleeping on a camping air mattress, if it is set on a large rock it can still make for an uncomfortable night. Also avoid placing an air mattress on plastic as it can slide as though it were sitting on ice.

You can find many types of camping mattresses. Usually, a camping air mattress that is coated on one side with flannel or other cloth is more comfortable than the one made from the plastic or rubber mattress. You also need to remember to have a sleeping bag or some blankets to lay on top of the mattress to prevent muscle pain from sleeping directly on the cold mattress.
