Remember the old Lilo airbed?. Well where can I get one from?.
I have been to most of the camping shops here in Canberra, but all they sell are the "guaranteed to leak" vinyl/pvc ones.
I have looked online as well and have found a couple of places that sell single beds but I want a double/queen.

Hi CH... I bought a queen size blow-up ensemble bed (ie, with blow up base integrated) which has its own inbuilt 240 v motor.

Also, a blowup double with a barrety operated motor that clips into an enclosure at the end of the bed - takes 4 D cells and works great.

We have taken both bush several times and happy with them.

Bought the Queen from Domayne in Canberra, and the Double from Ray's Outdoors.

Thanks Gary,
My experience with these is that they will spring a leak before too long and usually on a seam somewhere that cant be repaired. I have had the rubberised mattresses for years (decades!) and they rarely get a leak in them so thats why I was trying to buy one for my daughter.

Actually came across the Li-Lo site and discovered that it is an Australian company and doesnt produce rubberised beds anymore.

The first link is PVC and the rest you need to buy 6000 to 10000 pieces ,oh accept for the last one which comes in a box of 10..

Not an option unless there is a group buy lol

Wev'e had this issue in the past,there just so hard to source now...

As you say, there are some places have singles, such as Camping World Tuggeranong who have some coming in in the next day or so for around $40. Could you use two of these side-by-side?

Thanks Gary,
that was a lot of effort you put in.
I spoke with the fellow at Camping world, Tuggeranong and he seemed a bit vague about whether they had any doubles coming in with the order next week. I've also contacted the Toowoomba store in the link you so kindly provided, but havent yet heard back.

Some years ago, we bought two singles and put stick on velcro down one side of each to hold them together as a double/queen, works a treat!!
