My Ozark Trail Air Mattress Review - Inflatable Air Mattress 5 Stars

by R.B.

My bed is a queen sized Ozark Trail air mattress without a box springs or head board. It is so convenient because I can flop it down anywhere and it inflates within a few minutes.

It fits nicely in the back of my station wagon, which is currently my home. One thing I like about it is that it is durable and hasn’t ever popped. It also holds 600 pounds comfortably.

I usually dress it up with satin sheets whenever I have company coming over and this makes it slippery and soft. If you over inflate it then you can use it as a trampoline and play crack the egg and try to bounce the other person out of the hatch back and onto the ground or asphalt.

There is only one thing I am not pleased with and that is the pump. It is made for a house charger which is useless for me because I live in my car. Sometimes the drive through guy at the local Taco Bell will plug it in through the window for me and allow me to inflate it. It usually only takes as long as making a burrito anyway.

And if you think about it, air at a gas station isn’t free and so I would rather pay for a burrito and get my bed aired up at the same time. I wish you could manually inflate it with your mouth.

It also came with a carrying bag with straps like a backpack but I could never get it to fit back into it so now I just use the bag for doing laundry.

My mattress also makes a enormous party floatation device. It is almost like a raft and sometimes I take several friends out on it with an ice chest full of beer and go fishing. Once I fell asleep while floating down the Brazos river and it literally carried me three counties downstream. I woke up with third degree sunburns all over my body and then it was a nightmare carrying it back to my station wagon.

The price for this multifunctional bed was only $41. Can you believe that. It is a raft, a bed, and a trampoline with a laundry bag all for one low price of $41. That to me is amazing.

If I was to rate my bed, I would definitely have to give it a rating of 5 stars and 2 thumbs up. I would recommend this brand of bed to anyone who can’t afford a real one like me. It is so versatile and I love it.

Best air mattress EVER!!!
by: Anonymous

Sixteen years ago, I went camping, using an air mattress for the first time. It was an Ozark Trail Queen Size. I had a good sleeping bag on top of it, and covered with another. It was the best night's sleep I ever had in my life! I have been sleeping on air mattresses ever since, as my regular bed. I stack two so I that have added height. First, I used Coleman as my second mattress, placed on top of the Ozark mattress. Too lumpy, and rarely held up to their one-year guarantee. The coils would pop and create a large bubble.

Then I switched to Intex. They don't even have a guarantee, as I found out when I called about just one of the many defective ones. They always pop loose at the baffle seams, and spring premature leaks. The second-last one barely made it to three months. The last one didn't make it through one month. It sprang a small seam leak. Then another. and another. Four in all. And one of the mattresses was smaller than the normal queen size. They told me it would stretch with use. It didn't. I think I have gone through five or six Intex mattresses this year.

Here's the amazing wonder: On the bottom is my ORIGINAL OZARK TRAIL MATTRESS. SIXTEEN YEARS OLD NOW and still working. No leaks, no broken seams. How's THAT for a well-made mattress? But nobody around here carries them anymore. OZARK: where are youuuuu???
