??? Ours has two seperate air chambers for each half, so each can choose how hard/soft one’s half should be.
I Will check this again, but I was shure when blowing air in one valve the whole mattres became harder.

We used the Sea to Summit SIM in place of the upper VW mattress last night for the first time whilst staying in the Forest of Dean. To say it was better than the VW mattress is an understatement, in all honesty it was in another class. Absolutely brilliant, a game changer in terms of comfort, warmth and quality of sleep. Big recommendation.

I too am very pleased with this mattress. Much more comfortable than the comfort mattress and 30mm memory foam topper I have been using. Weight is 13kg less than before which makes it so easy to pull outside for stargazing etc. Also useful to now have the boot shelf on the higher setting. Did find when the other half moves at night you do feel it more but sure I’ll get used to that. Just need to get into the habit of releasing the valves as saw the warning about leaving it inflated on hot days.

Another fan of the Sea to Summit SIM here! Tried it for the first time this weekend and it was so comfortable. Would have slept like a log had it not been for the wind trying to remove the roof.
I do find that it takes ages to inflate itself fully but a few puffs into the valves does the trick.
So much easier to store than the VW Comfort mattress + topper.
Thanks for the recommendation :thumb

Just realised on my statement that they have added vat to the £192 price quoted on google. Tut tut.

yeah, it’s not cheap. It was the only place I could find it in stock. Wasn’t bothered about the price really. It’s in the lounge self inflating now...

It’s not cheap and you would think for the price comfortable beds would be standard.our comfort mattress with a topper is nice and comfortable but upstairs isn’t I may need some black out and also a topper for up there...
We never sleep upstairs but really would like to start using the top bed.
We’ve just bought an isotop for the upstairs: to keep warm in winter and coller in summer. Also to darken at nighttime

Do you use it on top of the laid-flat bench seat or do you have something else there? I have a comfort memory foam topper that goes on top of the bench seat but that is quite hard.
