AirBedz Original Truck Bed Air Mattress
A Truly Portable Truck Bed Air Mattress
In the category of must have camping accessories for your truck, the AirBedz Original is hard to pass up. This patented design truck bed air mattress fits over the top of and around the wheel wells, transforming the entire area of your truck bed into a queen sized mattress. And the Original is built to last, capable of handling up to 1200 pounds, and torture tested to upwards of 2500 pounds, it is the most durable air mattress we’ve ever seen to date. And this air mattress comes with a built in air pump that is powered via a rechargeable battery. There’s no need to bring a separate pump with you or mess around with any cords at the campground. Rather you just put the deflated AirBedz in position, turn the knob, and she inflates in under 2 and half minutes. And with the deflate option as well, the pump is reversed, making deflating and packing up the AirBedz super easy. This baby fits nearly every size of truck bed, from 5 foot short beds all the way up to your long bed 8 footers. Note that you will need an added tailgate extension for your short beds, cause otherwise you’ll only have five foot of bed, and that means your head or your feet will be hanging off the end, and ain’t nobody got time for that. This mattress is thick too at 12 inches for full size trucks, 10 for midsize. Using their integrated air coil comfort system, the weight is well distributed across the mattress. Made of heavy-duty nylon fabric, the AirBedz mattress is very puncture resistant as well. Don’t buy it? Check out the torture tests on their YouTube where they drive a truck over one! Better yet. Go see our SEMA interview that covers all the details of this great product. A patch kit and glue is also included, as well as a portable hand pump should disaster strike. This bad boy comes with a shoulder strap storage bag, making it perfect for on the go use. And since you don’t need any external power source, this thing can be aired up wherever you want. Add on the Wheel Well Inserts (sold separately) and you’ve got a portable Queen sized air mattress that can be aired up anywhere on the go with the built in air pump. We are talking about the best damn air mattress on the market that also fits perfectly in your truck bed. The AirBedz Original really sets a high mark. Let’s look at the details more closely, shall we?

SEMA Interview Covering the Details of these great Air Mattresses
When in doubt, sometimes you just can’t capture the entirety of how great a product is without some images and / or video. So while we love the review and the words and all, we thought we’d drop in this great interview by our very own Kyle, from SEMA a few years back as he dives into the most important aspects of the AirBedz Truck Bed Air Mattress line:
AirBedz Original Truck Bed Air Mattress
As technology advances and improves, we see tons of innovations across the board from larger and better resolution televisions to faster Internet and better smart phones. But one of the few areas that hasn’t seen major advancement is camping technology. That is until James Pittman founded Pittman Products International came up with his patented truck bed air mattresses, the AirBedz line. To call it a game changer for campers and outdoors folks everywhere would be a major understatement.
And we’ve heard the haters. Well, I’ll just throw my cheap-o air mattress in the back of my truck. Sure. You do that. Let us know how well that goes.
The probably with most cheap air mattresses is that they don’t offer enough support so you end up sinking through them down to the floor and end up with a terrible night of sleep--and that’s if you’re lucky enough to get to bed in the first place. Couple this with the fact that most larger sized air mattresses won’t even fit in your truck bed because of the wheel wells, and you’ll pretty quickly realize that you need something else.
Enter James Pittman. He saw an issue and a vacuum in the market of camping and truck accessories, and he’s filled it with some innovative products that transform your truck bed into a complete sleeping area, making camping and even just sleeping out under the stars on a road trip much more easy and comfy.
And these AirBedz mattresses aren’t like your knock off cheap ones either. For most trucks, these babies are 12 inches thick (10 inches for some smaller models) and their equipped with an integrated air coil system that distributes weight evenly across the mattress so that you don’t end up sinking down to your truck bed in the middle of the night.
And that’s really a big deal. Cause no one wants to sleep on the hard surface that is oddly known as your truck bed. At least you wouldn’t want to without an AirBedz over the top of it.
The Original, available in OG Blue and new school Camo, is both the top of the line version of the AirBedz and the original design--hence the name. This shows you that when Pittman Outdoors designs a product, they don’t start with the cheapest materials and the most cost effective design. They start with the best possible design you can make. In fact, this thing is so tough that they torture tested it by driving a full size pickup over the top of an AirBedz air mattress, and that bad boy still worked and didn’t leak.
While we don’t recommend you test it out the same way, you gotta believe that this bad boy is tough as nails. We challenge you to find a more durable air mattress, and there’s no way you’re finding another one that is designed to fit in your truck bed too.
So again, we have a company you can get behind, a brand that puts product design first, and it is all built by a man who just loves the outdoors. It is hard not to gush any more than this. AirBedz really is the best damn air mattress out there, and the added fact that they make one for your truck bed just pushes it even that much farther.
The Original comes with a built in air pump. No need to worry if you packed a separate pump or trying to hook up the pump to the air mattress. None of that nonsense. There’s no need for a plug or cord either. This baby runs off a rechargeable battery that can hold a charge for upwards of 3 months. And the integrated pump can inflate the mattress in under 3 minutes, and it even deflates this baby quickly too.
All of this makes AirBedz Original one of the quickest and easiest air mattresses to setup, and it works without any cord and fits perfectly in your truck bed. You can’t ask much more than that.
This baby does what it says it will do, and it does it well. I’ve never had a better night sleep on an air mattress in my life, let alone one in my truck bed. And I definitely recommend the wheel well inserts (sold separately) because this mattress is so great, you’re gonna want to be able to use it in the house when unexpected guests show up or on various camping trips with or without your truck. We just know you’re going to love your new AirBedz Original in either old school blue or new school camo.
