Kate, Thanet

Score 1.0/10
Good points:
You could beat me with a tent peg for a whole night and I could not come up with a good point for this product to save my life.
Bad points:
You'd think this was reasonably priced thing, good for example when you're in a tight spot because there are unexpected extra houseguests coming in at a time of month when you can't afford to suddenly buy a new futon and barely know how you are going to feed all these people (because your husband's friends don't like to plan, they like to "drop in", which is code for "use your home for cheap-to-free fully Katered - yeah, I know how it's actually spelled, but I'm Kate, okey - holidays") but you'd be wrong.

Here's the thing. There is no pump included with this. Something the description fails to mention and actually kind of hints it does. The bed is not compatible with standard pumps - you have to buy the brand pump. With money that you sorely need to feed Brian (who can't say "Thanks for cooking, Kate but is fluent in "Is there no beer or soda?" No Brian, we don't stock that because we are usually fine with milk, water or juice and we didn't know you were coming until last minute remember?) Oh, and the pump - had you had time to get it - doesn't come in a mains version, only batteries. (This is actually about as dumb as a steampowered lady shave. I mean, come on? Really? Batteries only?) If you actually do that (instead of just writing it off and finding a better product as soon as you can, like we did) you will end up paying for batteries through your nose.

If you are stuck with this, like we were - with guests coming and nowhere to sleep them - here's what you do. Open the airvent and pull hard towards you to release the safety. You should now be able to use a regular pump. Ours was too big for the opening, so we sealed the difference with packaging tape, inflated it, pushed the vent in again and removed the tape. (You should be able to do the same thing with a pump that is smaller than the vent.) When the guests went home, we burned the bed - in a controlled bonfire approved by council - and swore never to spend money on anything named Campingaz again. Brian can sleep on the bean bag. We don't take that proprietary format idiocy from Apple (and at least their products are pretty and not incredibly ugly, like this one) so we don't see why we should take it from this useless company.

Bad points:
Did not make a double bed as one short zip between the two single beds did not hold the beds together at all.

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Great quality
Bad points:
It requires an adaptor nozzle to inflate using a standard pump, and does not say this on the packaging. These adaptors are really hard to find and you might have to spend another £30 on a brand specific pump.

Elisabeth, Leicester

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Two mattress configuration gives flexibility of installation. Extra height in double height mode means getting up and down is much improved also much warmer as there are two layers of air trapping the heat. When down is relatively small to pack in the car. Great for camping and with sleeping bags
Bad points:
This is a replacement for one I bought only 2 years ago and one of the mattresses will not stay blown up and I can't find the leak. The old mattress and the new will also not link together. Still too cold to sleep on without a duvet/blanket under the bottom sheet
