I am trying to find a camp bed that comes in a double or queen size that I can use in the tent. I have tried plenty of inflatable bed which end up flat by the morning, and only are able to find single stretcher type beds.

Any ideas/suggestions?

My advice is one of the self inflating 4wd mattress.
But if you have tried that and do't like them then make me an offer an a Canvas double bed that I have going to waste in the shed. The problem is you don't get all of the surface area to sleep on as the design tends to make you roll to the centre.
It is a canvas bed where the frame comes apart and packs up.
If you picture one the old kids canvas wading pools and you turned it up side down then that's what you get.
Cheers

I've been using the "4x4" mats. They are green, self inflating and come in single, double and queen sizes. They are about 9-10 cm thick when inflated and also have high density foam in them. They are available from Anaconda, Rays and most camping stores. You have to sink the knees into them to get them rolled up tight but they are the best and most comfortable I have found.

We use 2 single aluminium camp stretchers strapped together, and a large double swag. The two singles pack better than the unwieldy doubles or queens; can be used as singles when needed; and are actually longer than a standard double or queen. We are fairly tall, and find our feet always seem to hang over the end of standard double or queen.
Works for us....

forgot to add, one reason we use this method is because I don't handle sleeping on the ground very well; another is the stretchers give you a much closer to normal bed height and storage space under.

I know that you can buy some of these styles of beds at K-Mart.

They are fairly bulky to pack.

hi
i would suggest using a oztrail instant quen bed.
This comes with a carry bag and compact fold up frame.
An air mattress is included, but as has ben said, air matts are pretty ordinary.
I would then take a queen or double self inflating mat [aka: 4x4 mat], and place on top off bed frame.
You will end up with one very comnfortable queen stracher bed.

regards
regan.
