Flaiar "Sleep & Store" air mattress sofa

I know this is used in several FR products...If you have one, what is your opinion of it? How does it sleep? Is it sturdy or prone to punctures?

It is VERY comfortable. We slept on in for 10 nights when we had company and gave up the bed for them as I am an early riser. Blowing it up and storing it daily had no affect on it. I am sure if the air is not all out of it when you store it you could puncture it.

Wife and son (age 26) both like it for comfort. I don't.

The mattress is better made than the sofa, IMHO, but the sofa can be "helped" if it needs it, particulaly with the very handy storage drawer underneath. (Which becomes unaccessable when the bed is deployed. Be aware the mattress will stretch the first few times you use it and you will swear it's leaking. Also, the little pump slightly warms the air passing through it (expansion) and when it cools (contraction) you might want to add a little air.

The pump will run "in reverse" so it can pump all the air out. Very handy. The pump runs on 120 vac, not 12 vdc, so be prepared for that if you want to go out to the boonies. There is a port for external pumps like the 12 vdc kind that pumps up rafts an such.

The pump is made into the mattress and easy to reach in the middle of the night.

We also use a blanket in the winter as a "bottom sheet" - you'll sleep warmer that way. Nice and cool in the summer, though.
