User Review: Ozark Trail Air Mattress Velour Top
Price Paid: $18
When I moved out west I was very poor and couldn't afford a nice bed. So I went to Walmart and picked up a queen sized Ozark Trail Air Mattress, not the elevated kind. I added a 2 inch foam pad on top, plus a quilted cotton mattress cover and also some cotton sheets. I was so surprised to find that this is one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept on.
I can adjust the air so it's very comfortable for my bad back and sleep soundly the whole night through. The first one lasted about 6 months and then a section of it started to bubble up. I got another, $18 whose complaining, and this one has held up perfect for over one year.
I believe the thick mattress pad helps protect the air bed and keeps the stress off the seams. Please note: I am a big guy, about 280 lbs and this mattress has held up great.
I don't know what these other people are doing to their mattresses but you can't expect it to be as durable as a regular bed. It is an air mattress and you need to treat it as such. No sharp objects on the bed.
