Sorry that might help :oops: :D

Like them. The covers come off easily and wash well. The sleeping bags are thicker than the character ready beds, we've only had to add blankets once in the tent. The only problem we've had is that Aiden's developed a puncture on holiday last year, cue hubby, washing up bowl and a repair kit! However, I think that's a risk of all ready beds! Good that they're all in one so that they can't fall out and we don't need to take pillows for them! We'll be buying another for Dylan at some point!

That Kampa bed looks great - what age range are they suitable for would you say? DD is 19 months but has outgrown her travel cot as she's tall. I'm thinking this could be good as a spare bed for sleepovers too when she's older, or is it only for really young/small kids?

The interior dimensions are 115cm by 60cm so they should do up to about 5 or maybe 6 if you have a little one!! Rowan was in hers last night and slept great - even though it was blowing a hoolie outside the tent!!!

Well Nathan used the new ready bed this weekend. It's aged 3 plus and doesn't have the 'bolster' bits on the side. He is such a wriggler and just didn't stay on it.

We are going to get a kampa now after seeing it from the link here.

I'm definitely going to get one of those kampa ones, we borrowed a friends ready bed (with the side bolsters) for Tyler last time we went away and he just kept falling off it so ended up sleeping in with us!

We've just got her one of these which she'll use with a sleeping bag but could be used with a gro-bag or sheets and a duvet. I like the fact that she can't roll off the bed.

Aw that would be perfect for DDs bunk in our campervan but it's too long! I'm really struggling to find a solution for it. The space is 150cm by 100cm so nothing fits!
