Derek and I are in need of replacing our mattress, and would really like to go with an air bed type system. We visited the Select Comfort store this weekend, and I think both of us walked out more confused that we went in. All of the websites for the major manufactures I thought were very confusing and lots of fluff.

I really liked the feel of the beds, and of course the nicer the bed the nicer the price tag. I just have a problem spending almost 4k on a top of the line air bed. Then I read some reviews on line and basically come to the 'Get what you pay for' conclusion.

We want a simple, good quality bed that will last a while. We are both "big" being both over 6ft, and both over 230lbs. We want wired controls, one for each side, and the pump, as long as it works I am not so concerned about, but it should fit in the space availible.

I stumbled across a manufacture that only sell on line, and seems to get pretty good reviews. I am curious if anyone has one of these beds, and what they really think of it. I am impressed by the 180 day money back gaurntee, and the simplistic seemingly well thought construction. They don't seem to try to confuse the heck out of you with 10 million options and models, and just make one air bed.

The company is Habitat Furnishings. I have never heard of them, and would really like some feedback, if you haven't either, but own an air bed, I would like to hear about that too.

Thanks!

John

Well, I'm not sure what confused you, but that is not the point.

We bought a Sleep Comfort Queen, dual bladder w/separate controls for each, for our home about 5 years ago and paid about the same price as Habitat has listed for a queen.

If you are buying an air mattress for 2, just make sure it has separately controlled air bladders, so each can adjust to meet your own requirements.

The other caution, since you are considering this for your motor home, is that when you travel make sure the air bladder is emptied if you are traveling through altitude... because the change in air pressure will "inflate it." In a motor home you need a 110VAC power source to re-inflate the air bladders if shore power is not available to you (boondocking or Wal-Mart, for example).

As a satisfied Sleep Comfort owner, what Habitat offers seems reasonable. The only information I didn't see specified on their order form is how to order a single or dual air bladder for the queen or king size bed. I'm sure a phone call would clarify that issue.

Look at these airbeds from Camping World. Price seems reasonable to me.

Try this website. http://www.regin-inc.com/air-beds/air-beds-benefits.htm We purchased the allegro model for home about three years ago and both really like it. We tried the select comfort at store but couldn't tell any difference from the Regin. Regin much less expensive.

We have two Select Confort Queen beds. One at home with two controls, not sleep number. and one queen in our motor home sleep number controls. We both like different softness and they work great. Had the one at home for 5 years now and love it just as much as the first night sleep. Their warantee is also very good. Good luck. PS: we both weigh in the 200's. Good luck

www.bearbeds.com is much lower in cost than select confort. We have had a bear bed in our house for several years and it is great.

I have a Select Comfort California King in the house and the RV Queen in the MH. The DW and I love the idea of different comfort setting for each. I am 6'2" and 250lbs and the bed is the most comfortable nights sleep in my life. My cousin has a SC bed that is over 20 years old (pre "sleep number) that is all original. She says it still works fine after all these years.

Good luck on your search!

The Select Comfort king came in our coach. I'm 6'4" 300lbs (yes I'm on a diet - was 345 last October). Would not trade for a regular mattress again. Do watch the air pressure when traveling.

Thanks for all your replies.

I think we are going to go with the Habitat bed, but we are not 100% sure yet. From what I can tell, they are all very good options.

Thanks for the feedback!

John
