I was wondering if anyone has used the air mattresses sold at Wal-mart for their permanent mattress in their trailer. I am seasonal and was looking for a new mattress but don't want to buy a camper mattress (too expensive). Any thoughts on this. Thanks in advance.

We have been sleeping the Wal-Mart Ozark Trail air mattress for quite a while now. The flocked tops are hard to patch, but the vinyl side (and the non-flocked ones) are much easier to patch.

We are currently sleeping on an all-vinyl ($15 queen) bed. I have an "Unfeather Bed" pad (from www.domestications.com) and a heated mattress pad because we are used to sleeping on a heated waterbed. David & I also have bad backs... we air up the mattress until fairly firm (test with both of you in the bed as it does make a difference). We do periodically have to add more air. I think the vinyl stretches slightly over time. I bought the electric pump so airing up is pretty easy.

I can buy an awful lot of the Ozark Trail mattresses for what one Sleep Number (or most any other fancy air mattress) will cost.

We bought 2 King Coleman mattresses from Wal Mart for our pop up and used them for 3 years, filled them up when we set up and let them down when it was time to move on. No problems, of course they were on top of the ones that came with the camper. We loved them. I would think some type of good pad would help a lot.

Have fun.
