Inflatable mattress covered by inflatable double-walled Tent
would be single integrated unit, large enough for 1 person.
Mattress & Tent would have oblong shape, with zippable door at
one end. Entire structure could be inflated using portable air
pump. Could be used as portable emergency shelter
caught in bad weather, or for camping. Zippered door flap would
open upwards to become an awning. Multiple tents could also
be anchored together in radial spoke pattern around central
Inflatable Double Wall Dome
imagine something more oblong/capsule-shaped and with a mattress [sanman, Dec 25 2021]
||Good idea, except //using portable bicycle pump//.
Too slow; use a double-acting upright pump (bigger & a bit less
portable, but your arms will thank you).
||P.S. Your tent may or may not be a flotation device.
||Yeah, I'd originally thought of calling it an inflatable raft tent,
but I thought most people wouldn't be as happy floating on
the water while being asleep. The instant shelter idea
appealed to me more.
||@neutrinos shadow: okay, edited to just say "portable air
pump" (there are a lot of possibilities there)
||Does it come with an instacamp air cartridge, pull tab hot food pack, and 1 kiloton instant tree clearance device?
||@a1: Rhino Wolf is not inflatable, and not double-walled. It
shows a tiny little inflatable pad, which is hardly comparable
to a mattress. The tent is just a regular tent, and not even an
inflatable tent, much less double-walled. It is not oblong or
capsule-shaped. It has no awning. I don't see any other
product out on the market like what I'm suggesting. My radial
anchor thing would not look like theirs, and would probably be
a separate inflatable hub-like attachment that's more flame-
proof/heat-resistant to accommodate a heat source like a
campfire or wood stove.
||@a1: there's nothing that's an integrated unit, or that has an
inflatable double-wall structure. Look at the link I posted.
||+ I like it. The Rhinowolf does not look like it has a
||As per the link I'd posted, the outer wall of the double wall
should be clear/transparent while the inner wall of the
double wall should be black. This would permit a
greenhouse heating effect to help warm the interior of the
tent during daytime.
||Perhaps a larger more camping-friendly version of this tent
could be igloo/dome-shaped (See link). The mattress would
then only cover part of the floor, leaving some interior
walking space. That would also allow space to put a
portable wood stove. A small port could be openable in the
ceiling for the stovepipe. On the wall opposite to the bed
(ie. facing it) the inner wall would be clear/transparent
like the outer wall, providing a window for occupants to
enjoy the exterior view while camping. An interior
drape/blind could be attached to cover the window for
privacy, and would also be white to double as a possible
movie projection screen.
