Default Recommend an air mattress

Looking for an air mattress for camping. I have a cheap one from walmart and it loses air overnight. Looking for something that holds air and is comfortable. Head rest would be a plus.

Car camping or hiking?

1 person or a full size?

I recently bought an Intex brand at academy. It's a nice queen size & is one of the taller style about 20" in height. Has a built in electric pump you just plug in & hit the switch. I guess if the pump burns up then it's useless. Holds air better than most I've had. Most will to a certain extent as air temp changes

Full size. Car camping. Got all the backpacking gear, had two kids, so it's a whole new game now. I do not want one of those 18" thick ones from costco. I think those are more guest beds, but I do want something comfortable and holds air. Needs to be a good experience for the wife and kids.

Thanks, probably a bit too tall. Concerned about the kids rolling off at night.

Loom at getting a nice thick pad if your willing to drop the coin. Way more comfortable
