The average Queen-sized mattress takes up 37.5 cubic feet of space, as does a matching box spring. An estimated 29 million mattresses and 19 million box springs discarded annually add up to over 18.5 million cubic yards of landfill space. (That's like burying 13.5 Empire State Buildings every year!) What's worse, mattresses and box springs cannot be mixed with other waste and soil to decompose, releasing space that extends the useful life of a landfill. Instead, they migrate to the bottom of the fill, where they take decades to break down.
Basically, when you lie down on a coil mattress there is a tension between the coils and the sleeper. The sleeper's weight is pushing down of the coil and the coil is pushing back against the sleeper. Despite some advances in design, with coil springs the sleeper conforms to the shape of the mattress.
Of course toppers do add a little height to your bed. If your fitted sheets are stretched as they are they might not be able to fit on the bed any longer. You may need to get extra sheets if you decide to add a topper. If your sheets are important to you, check if they will fit before buying the topper. Most sheets will fit with a stretch and some toppers aren't quite the size of the bed to enable easier fitting. It is something to be aware of.
Camping air mattresses are an integral part of any camping activity because they allow exhausted campers to get a refreshing night's sleep while on vacation. You could get a proof by testing some of them to believe how comfy and warm they are but once you try I'm certain you will not only be pleasantly surprised, but will be thinking how you slept on the ground for all that time!
