So are we talking about an air mattress you inflate and then float down the river on or the rapids. It better be of a good-quality that will not have holes poked easily into it. Then all the air leaks out and before you know it you have a flat air mattress. But we are not talking about those types of air mattresses. We are discussing the air mattresses that you sleep on yes sleep on. You most likely do want a mattress that you have to inflate but also one that you can obviously sleep comfortably on. I am not sure that air mattresses are very popular today. If you are in the market for one you can find one easily on the market. The air mattress should have a built-in pump that will inflate the air mattress quickly and efficiently. You want to purchase an air mattress that will be made of a durable product that will not spring a leak the first day you purchase it. You will find that air mattresses are much cheaper to buy than regular mattresses.
