I researched roll up foam mattresses and found a tri fold memory foam mattress. I would buy that before an air mattress.

Thank you. I need to look into this. A twin roll away bed may work.

I forgot about those. We bought 2 of those for our van. They did well for about 10 months then they started to cave in a bit. It is a temporary fix but probably still better than an air mattress.

We bought this one for one of our guest rooms. It has excellent reviews and many people love it. Personally I found it a bit too soft. BTW, the single is short.

Air mattresses will always leak sooner or later. And they are COLD to sleep on.

I was very pleased with my Spa Sensations mattress. After 5 years, it did start to break down, so I gave it away. It was still adequate, so that was about $40 per sleep year, reasonable IMO. I now have one of those tri-fold mattresses, and like it even better. But you might not, unless you, like me, prefer a thinner mattress.

I do not understand the price difference. I want the best bang for the buck. If you scroll to the bottom of the first link, you will see a huge price difference and I do not get it. The Queen may be too large to handle. I am leaning towards the second one. What do you think?

Your second one is only 4 inches but comes with a frame. The first one is 6 inches but will crush in time where the folds are.


Personally I would check walmart as it is easier to make returns if there is a problem and they are less expensive. JMO Good luck.

Sounds good. I think there is one near by. Once the car is registered, I will check it out. Price is good too.

For people who move, here are my suggestions for excellent comfort, reasonable cost, and easy mobility:

THE BED: A Camptime Roll-a-Cot, wide:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=37gZOJONetA Sturdy, comfortable, economical.

MATTRESS: Exped Megamat 10 MW:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wAnWfXMCG8E If you don't like the price, wait for a sale. This mattress is not just air---it has a layer of foam that makes it a lot more comfortable than regular air mattresses.

This cot plus mattress is the most comfort you can get in a lightweight package. I once slept on these for more than a year during home renovations and was extremely comfortable. They are both top rated. Total weight is about 14 lbs. You can adjust the firmness of the mattress to get it exactly the way you want it.

I'm fed up with expensive, heavy mattresses that sag in the middle after a couple of months. The next time I move I'm going to ditch the regular mattress for good and go with the above.

The mattress is inflatable. I have eliminated this as a choice. Thank you.

I went to Walmart yesterday. I was completely underwhelmed. They did not have anything out on display. I could not lift what they had. I went to Biglots to check out the roll away bed. It is not going to work for me. I did not like it. I decided to get the memory foam twin trifold mattress and a stool for my kitchen bar. Apartment is now furnished. Lol! I may get a cheap comfortable. We'll see. I am vagabond. Thank you Ylisa7. I was able to get a price break because of my Thank you points. It did not hurt at all.
