We've compiled a list of options that are comfortable, sturdy, and easy to set up, so you can get straight to making s'mores and telling spooky stories by the campfire.

Editor's Notes

December 15, 2018:

The most important factors to consider when shopping for air beds are durability, comfort, and weight, so the list was put together according to those specifications. Made sure to include raised models, as well as those with a lower profile, and options that are available in both queen and twin sizes.
