Spend the do$h and get a good one: ie the most you can afford.

I have a kingsize double Coleman Bigfoot. It can be pumped up hard, and is mega comfy. Its done me and the misses well on heaps of camping trips over the last 3 years. Well worth the $150 we paid, and I think theyre cheaper now.

I've had quite a few mattresses (took a whole to realize the cheaper ones are shit), and most do slowly leak, but the Bigfoot won't for a good 4 or 5 days, and even then it's just a few breaths to get it back to firm.

 +1 for Coleman Bigfoot!  I have one that stayed in the spare room, inflated for regular visitor, it stayed inflated without lleaking for 12 months... several dogs jumping on didn't damage it either. It also comes with a small pump to inflate and deflate, uses DSize batteries.


Save the Whales! May as well - they won't fit in my catch bag!!!
