Have swags but with four of us in the boat takes up a fair amount of room.

Coleman bigfoot has been bantered around ?????????????

I got three from BCF (two singles & 1 double) three years ago, with the camp stretchers and they are going great guns, no problems at all.

Coleman bigfoot are a good option. I'm 2m tall and weigh 100kg and the Coleman doesn't deflate, also had no dramas with it being punctured by every day wear and tear.

Oztrail stretcher beds are also a good alternative.

SHORT ANSWER NO! :P Had plenty of differnet sorts eventually they all failed one way or the other. :banghead:

I just use a 25mm foam cusion and a sheet. Doesn't go flat,you don't have to blow it up and stacks away nicely under floor. :mrgreen:

Kids be ok on a double mattress but if there is 2 blokes sleeping on one it's pretty hard to getting sleep as every time some one moves the whole air mattress rocks and rolls I have a big one in the boat that 3 fellas can crash out on I also have one of those inflatable foam mattresses they you leave in the sun and te foam expands from 20mm to about 60mm thick and pretty comfy to
Just boat a couple of hammocks for this trip tommorow so see how they go over the next 4 days ;)

Mrs just got me an aerobed pak mat. She bought it for me to sleep in the boat. Rolls up into a canister about 12cmx40cm and the canister is the pump which takes about a minute to blow up.
It has a video on utube which has a good description of it

make sure it has internal foam insert and not just air - much more comfortable. BCF has some nice ones
