I have two guest rooms. One can handle a queen size mattress and the other can't. Could one only inflate one of the sides, for a small child's bed or for sitting? Or are both sides somehow linked to the point where both chambers must be inflated?

Thanks for any info.

Seriously dudes, does it float.

Alternately, you can buy a thick camping pad.



I disagree. A deliberately soft (underinflated) airbed is the only bed that helps my ruptured-disc painful lower back. I've never used a Serta but Airbeds have served me well as a permanent and pain-relieving matress. By the way, I have tried expensive $1200-$6000 matresses and airbeds help the most.

I wonder what the shipping cost would be to ship back to Wenzel or Serta and who covers that.

What is the maximum capacity of this bed? How much weight can each side hold? I may have a situation where 3 or even 4 people must share the same bed (get any kinky thought out of your head!).

This will be perfect for when the lady puts me out on the couch. Especially when she decides she isn't mad at me anymore, a couch with 2 people kinda sucks.

If it's filled with air, and consists of more air than anything denser than water, then it must float by the laws of physics.

Considering there's an electric pump in it, I wouldn't want to test that theory out...

What's unique is that this has two independent chambers. As such, would that be 500lbs each chamber or 500 lbs for the entire bed?

If the entire bed, then it's surprisingly weak. I believe some of the Aerobeds claim an 800lb limit. This is a Queen size bed, which would normally support more weight.

I agree. I have an air mattress similar to a Sleep Number bed that I bought at Overstock.com for $400. It's basically a "box" made out of memory foam pieces into which the air bladder itself sits, all zipped into a microfiber covering. And it is so much more comfortable than the piece of junk spring mattress I used to have. It's been five years and it's still going strong.

I have a Walmart 10" tempurepedic knockoff mattress and the foam underneath the miracle foam has worn out in 2 years. This sure looks better than the miracle foam for back sufferers.
I am wavering.

If its floating on a liquid wouldn't laws of chemistry apply? What about certain mathematical theorems? Lest not forget laws of nature and the Geneva Convention ...

Indeed it does float, and very high in the water -- maybe too high for ocean navigation. It capsizes easily in high seas unless you add outriggers on all 4 sides. Then you can add an inflatable sail, inflatable rudder, and an inflatable(?) anchor to make it a mini Kon-Tiki.

Better bring a hand air pump or a long extension cord, too.

How did they find a 175lb wife if the weigh 375lbs?

It would figure that the week after I buy an airbed that I can't return (only exchange) that Woot would have one at this price. Drat.

And the faux-velour covering attracts dust like a swiffer duster.

Sertas are vastly better in terms of build quality.



Yeah, the Walmart page for this Serta mattress has a review from a person who had two Intex mattresses fail within months. Apparently, the seams are magulah weak

Anyone know if the pump is universal voltage or is it just 120v?

I've bought many airbeds in the past and they all have been terrible. That is until I got an Aero bed. Has anyone here ever owned both of these and can give me a good comparison? I can't see spending this much $ on an airbed if it sucks.

@ckeilah who said these mattress always leak after a few uses--I have a good quality air mattress that I've had for at least five years that gets used several times a year and it's in perfect condition. Just make sure the floor beneath it is clean before blowing it up, because any debris, especially hidden in carpet, could be the source of your problem.

There's a picture shown where they inflate only one side; so you can do that.

We have a Wenzel tall mattress that looks a lot like this, but not labeled Serta. I paid about $100 for it, and I can tell you it is holding up to a lot of kid abuse and is VASTLY better than Intex.
We bought one of each brand for a larger family gathering, figuring the taller bed for adults and the regular short one for the kids. The Intel lost a little bit of air from night #1, and has already needed patching (about 2 months). Patching never really works, so that was a waste of money...
The Wenzel, in contrast has remained set up for the entire time and has any number of 60 to 90 pound kids JUMPING on it (until discovered and told to stop) and it has not deflated/popped. Fits four kids and an adult across to read books (didn't suggest anyone could sleep like that).
Regarding the pump, it is not as noisy as some, but I wouldn't fill it in a room where someone was already sleeping.
As for the Sure-grip bottom, it doesn't work on carpet, so this is just as movable as any other air mattress.
The height of it is great! You really can use it for a replacement bed for the in-laws.
I'm considering yet another one...

Half of a queen is smaller than a twin, isn't it?



A twin is 3'3" wide, a Queen is 5'. So 2'6" would be half.

Anyone know what the whole outfit weighs? I'd like to take it camping and don't want to lug it around if it weighs too much.
