Looking for a full sized.one. We'd like one with a built-in pump. This is for extra overnight guests. Any deal for a good reliable and not too expensive one there? TiA

Kmart had a special in todays Sunday flyer.

Looks like they have a large selection on line...

My suggestion is buy a quality cot or two. They fold up small and are infinitely more comfortable than an air mattress.

We recently bought a few SlumberJack brand cots to keep on hand for guests and to camp with. If I set them both up and give guests a choice they always pick the cots. No bouncing around, no air loss, no hassle.

I have bought several of these queen size intex brand inflated beds (airpump installed in bed--takes about 2-4 minutes) from sportmans Guide mail order costs about $55, cheaper if you become a club member. Several other models, styles available. They have:
1. Stopped having to look for additional beds, can use living rooms, etc (No more hidaway beds)
2. 22" high
3. nephews love helping to deflate 'em
4. Cheapest I have seen for a queen size.

Dunno. I can sleep on an air mattress if it's firm enough but not a cot, ever.
Although my absolute preference is a few camping mats and a sleeping bag or thick quilt on top of them on the floor.

I recently had to sleep on an air mattress and it was quite a comfort my for aching back. My experience with the cot on the other hand was the opposite. So I assume my guests would prefer the air mattresses. The only concern is the air leakage and the inevitable embarrassment ;)

We got the Queen sized at CostCo -- the sportsmansguide is about half the price. It's 18" high and standard queen sheets fit it.

We only had to "top it off" every few days and that's because we liked it super firm...

So far the ones sold at Kmart/Sears don't have good reviews even Coleman's quality has gone down hill. I am checking out Costco. BTW, how long do these air mattresses usually last if used daily?

Yeah, it all comes down to preference. The cots we have are wide and long, very much like a single bed, use a bed roll and you've got a single bed. They're also easier for older guests to get in and out of.

G'luck!

The one my friend loaned me is of the same brand and size. Every 5 minutes I would have to pump the air. Damn, I can even hear the air leaking out slowly!
