Fox Airbeds: Not Your Average Airbed! (Review)

Fox Airbeds

This product was provided free of charge in exchange for an honest review.

We do a lot of traveling, and as many people can probably relate, there really is no bed like your own.  Often after the first night away, I am pining for my bed back at home.  I had the opportunity to try an air mattress from Fox AirbedsThe Signature Memory Foam Air Mattress with Bed Skirt and Protective Cover – which is unlike any other air mattress I have ever tried!

I have come to know what I can expect when we travel and sleep on things like pull out beds.  Even after just one night’s sleep, my husband and I both often experience discomfort in our back, and I seem to always get a stiff neck and painful shoulder.  I want to be able to enjoy our travels, so that I can be enjoying our vacations and be running after the kids without a poor night’s sleep slowing me down.  Even a regular airbed doesn’t offer much in the way of a good night’s sleep.  Having a Fox Airbed has changed the way we travel!

This air mattress comes with an instruction book, and setting up the airbed is extremely easy.

The first step is to lay out the protective base.  The great thing about this is that not only does it protect the mattress, but it is a great way to gauge if you have enough space for the airbed, or the best way to situate it, since it gives you the footprint of the bed.  This is a queen size bed, and measures 80″ x 60″ x 25″.

Next, you unroll the air mattress inside of the protective base.  As you can see, there is a spot where there is a rectangular cutout (on the right), and that is where you are going to align the intake for the air pump (which is built right into the mattress).

Next, you inflate the mattress to about 70%. which takes under 2 minutes.  All you have to do is plug it in and press “inflate” on the remote!

Next, lay the memory foam on top.  It comes tightly shrink-wrapped, so you may want to unwrap it and let it sit out for a bit to let it fully expand.

One of the minor downsides to this air bed, which I actually was not surprised by, is that the memory foam smells strongly when you first open it.  I am sensitive to the smell, so you may want to plan on letting it air out a little bit before using it.  I simply put it in our extra room for a few days to let it air out.

Once the memory foam is in place, you place the mattress cover (which has a built-in bedskirt) on top, and zip it right to the base.  It is super easy, and I had no problem whatsoever aligning the zipper.

Lastly, you complete inflating the airbed to your desired firmness.

I love the remote control, which also has it’s own pocket right on the side of the mattress cover!  How many times have you used a “traditional” air mattress where you woke up in the middle of the night and had to fumble for a button in the dark or even a vacuum to inflate it?

Fox Airbeds

When you are done using the airbed, there are even instructions on how to roll it up.  It tells you unscrew the release valve, fold the bed into thirds, and then roll up.

This bed is extremely comfortable, and it doesn’t feel like an air mattress.  I don’t know how they do it, but it also doesn’t have that “sag” that I have experienced with all the other air mattresses I have tried.  And the memory foam takes this air mattress to a whole other level of comfort.  If you have ever used an air mattress on a cold floor, you know that it can be pretty cold, but the memory foam will keep you comfortable.  The memory foam is 1″ thick, and feels so plush.

My kids wanted to try it out, and my 6 year old climbed on the bed and promptly took a nap!  There is also a little bit of a raised edge, so this is an extra benefit especially if you are using this with children.

Fox Airbeds

The bed fits queen size sheets with no problem.  I was wondering if the fitted queen sheet would be too tight, since there is no indentation along the lines of where a mattress would meet a box spring, but I had no problem putting the sheet on or with it staying on.

I had no problem folding and rolling up the air bed, but I wasn’t quite sure as far as the most ideal strategy for how to fold or store the other parts (base and memory foam).  The Fox Airbeds bag is quite large, but I would rather that the bag is too big (as opposed to too small), as I have some frustrating memories associated with trying to fit things in their original bags (air mattresses, camping mattresses, tents, and more).  It would be nice if there was some way to cinch the bag tighter, but at the same time it does allow you to carry everything.

All together, the components of this mattress are heavy.  This is not something a child could carry, and it does take a little energy to lug it around, but worth it for the good quality of sleep!

This is just the base and air mattress rolled up.

This bed has 60% thicker vinyl and holds up to 750 lbs, so you can expect this mattress to be durable.

This Fox Airbed has been so convenient, with so many ways to use it!

  • We have used it in our own home when we had guests and not enough beds.
  • We have used it when we traveled to a relative’s home and didn’t want to deal with an uncomfortable bed.
  • And we have even used it next to one of our beds for a movie night and sleepover, because this bed is the same height as our beds.  So although you want to be careful your kids don’t fall in between beds, they can share a room and have  a sleepover without too many kids piled in one bed.
  • This would have been wonderful when my daughter had meningitis last year, because she slept in our bed for almost two months, and we had to take turns sleeping with her so we could take care of her.  We could have simply set this bed up right next to our bed so that she could be comfortable and right by us.
  • This would have also been great for when were selling a home that we had moved out of and were visiting on weekends, because it could be used for staging a home (looks like an actual bed) and is comfortable too.

The Fox Airbeds Signature Memory Foam Airbed (in Queen) retails for $259.99.   You can find a variety of beds on their website to fit your needs, from twin to King, with different features.

    Wow that airbed looks awesome! I usually hate sleeping on air beds because they are thin and deflate easy. This one looks very similar to a bed.

    That is so easy to set up and inflate and looks super comfy!

    Wow, that is the fanciest air mattress ever!!

    I like how it has a “Base” built in so it is high up. Not sure if it’s the same brand, but my Auntie has a high one like that and it’s much nicer than the air beds I have slept on before!

    Just a quick side note the Fox airbed stays here. Better when the temperature around it is warmer. When the temperature gets cooler under 69 and below it will start to lose they are there’s nothing wrong with the mattress if it has not been punctured or anything it will lose air highway 360 and my air bed holds up to 767 pounds. I have used it in both cooler temperatures with the air conditioner on and noticed it lose the air and I have used it with no air conditioning when it was hot in my apartment and it lost very little to no air. I have talked to Fox air ennitect and a few other companies about this problem and they said they have not thought to address it in their manuals but probably will in the near future.
