Frame is good - inflatable mattress garbage
The Wanderer brand (i understand) is akin to BCF's own brand of products and, for the most part, the products are good quality for what you pay.
The Wander Tour Bed - Queen -or- Wanderer Queen Tour Bed is not.
First up: the 'Queen' cannot refer to the size as it is not a Queen-sized mattress. It is a double. You will discover this when you need to go and purchase a replacement inflatable mattress when the original fails. This should be classed as false advertising right at the start. I will state now that the bed has a quoted weight limit of 200kg which was never exceeded and was never over-inflated.
My purchase initially got a hole where the oval sections are in the mattress that hold it level rather than allowing it to become a balloon. I managed to fix that when it arose after no less than 3 uses - in the home - under the air-conditioning unit because it was summer and too hot in the bedroom... it was not in a camping situation.
The slow-deflation was abated and it was good for a couple more uses. Then, during the night, there was a loud *pop*. Morning showed that one of the pressed/oval sections in the mattress intended to keep it's shape had failed and the mattress was starting to bubble up. It was deemed to not be an issue.
Over the next two nights, a series of these ovals had failed and now the mattress was becoming a balloon. It become the perfect shape for someone to read in bed or have their feet pointing towards the ceiling. It was useless for sleeping on.
Upon approaching BCF to discuss this, the staff was certainly willing to help but it seems that this is a common fault.
So - the base section that keeps the mattress off the ground... That is good. When it comes time to replace, the Coleman double mattress from Tentworld is a far better price and fits perfectly.
