I'm thinking of a REI 3.5" self-inflating pad for 99.50, Paco has a 3" for 250.00. Anyone with experience with self-inflating pads, either one of these brands? Not sure why the big price difference. I'm older, bad back, overweight but still trying or at least thinking of trying. I'd like to use something like this to see if I can car camp and sleep in the back of my old Blazer.
Along those lines - has anyone ever used or seen anyone use those SUV tents? There is one that just sort of fits over your open hatch and back end for sleeping and others that are tents connected to a "sock" that fit to your open back end. Honestly I don't know how often I'll do this, I'm exploring the idea. I have seen magnetized screens for vehicle windows and I think that's a brilliant idea.
