Re: Carma base or Stretcher?
We have had Carma Quip mattresses since 2011 and we have camped for over a month using them on one trip. They have been well used and will last for many years to come.
In 2012, Swambo broke her ankle so I bought the Oztent stretchers for CKGR. They had enough padding so we did not need the mattresses.
The stretchers are just as bulky as the mattresses just a lot heavier.
When we got back we sold the stretchers because of the extra weight.
We have just bought 2 of the large Carma Quip mattresses to use when my son and wife from the UK go camping with us.
I would recommend the Carma Quip self inflating mattresses every time, even though getting up from ground level takes a bit more effort.
