Now days camping can be equaled to enjoying a night in the comforts of home with new technology and luxuries that are available that have not always been in years past. Though campers and hikers in previous times pursued the outdoors for the experience of nature and all that it has to offer, campers now can choose to still smell the fresh air and rest comfortably in spacious tents with their heads off the ground in a camping bed.
Types of Beds
In the past, camping mattresses have either been the type you have to either blow up with your own lungs or have an external pump, or just a foam pad, but now there are more options. Camping beds range in size from twin to full. If more than one person is camping and does not mind sharing a bed, then a bigger camp bed and mattress can be obtained. A double camp bed or camping bunk beds can be easily found at an outdoors store or even a large chain store. For more convenience and easy travel, some campers prefer air bed camping, which is done with an air mattress and a portable pump. A folding camp bed is also more fit for travel and hiking. No matter the type of mattress or pad that is used, the bed is supported by a lightweight metal or plastic spring frame and is usually easy to assemble. This allows for a cleaner sleeping environment and more comfort and stability for the camper.
Things to Consider
Buying a camping bed requires an adequate amount of consideration before a final decision. Weather is an important factor because the mattress and frame need to be weather resistant. It also needs to meet the standards of the camper for comfort levels and possible health issues like back problems and arthritis. Price is a factor. Though the cheapest equipment should not be the first option, the most expensive should not be the only consideration for best quality. A look at the features of the bed and maybe a consultation with someone with more experience could be helpful in finding a quality bed for a reasonable price.
An uncomfortable bed can lead to sleepless nights and an overall unpleasant camping experience. However, a quality camping bed could brilliantly intertwine the joys of home and the great outdoors. A decrease in stiffness and discomfort is an increase in a pleasurable camping adventure.Share This
