About this deal

I have to say rolling things up – mattresses, sleeping bags, you name it, is my LEAST favourite part of the camping experience. The Hi Gear Duo Bunk Bed camp beds also seemed like they would be super handy for future trips where we might need to put them to bed in a smaller space than usual.

And by that I mean, once we had discovered they made camping bunk beds for kids (in this case, the Hi Gear Duo Bunk Beds from Go Outdoors), we thought they’d be the perfect solution for our daughters’ (aged 5 and 3 at the time) sleeping arrangements during our camping adventure. There’s huge variation in how much these weigh – really important if you’ve got some distance to cover between your vehicle and camp site. If you think I left any out that should be included or have a suggestion for a future article, let me know in the comments below. I like the fact there’s no faffing around with pumps, and no issues with having to deflate beds like you get with blow-up mattresses.

You will allow yourself more storage space, plus you can use your bunk beds for other purposes such as single benches or single beds. Oh the conversations – ok, heated chats – the husband and I had about what we could and couldn’t take on our three-week camping road trip to France. The camping bunk beds were a great bit of kit to take with us on our three week road trip, but we also regularly use them for staying at friends’ and families’ houses, as well as when we stay in self-catering apartments on holiday. For more comfortable nights in the great outdoors, see my top picks for kids sleeping bags and camping pillows. There’s an awful lot of construction that goes into a setting up camp, even with an inflatable Berghaus tent.

While these Go Outdoor bunk beds are great for young kids, you’ll need a different kids of portable camping bed for babies. A nice cosy sleeping bag and a proper pillow (not the inflatable camping pillows shown below in the photograph – they just flew out from under their heads constantly) make this a pretty snug child-sleeping option. You can also use them for at home if your kids have a sleepover or you want some portable storage space. They have also proved invaluable for when we have guests with kids come to stay in our humble-sized house – they fit neatly into the corner of the room, meaning we can easily accommodate for a family of 4 in one bedroom. In terms of sleeping bags for bunk beds, our young kids slept in these padded Vango Starlight sleeping bags and were more excited by the prospect of who was going on the top bunk, than the softness of the bed, so were very happy with their lot.We’re going to get loads of use out of the fold up bunk beds in years to come too, not just as tent camping bunk beds, but for weekends away, self-catering stints and staying with friends and family. If you were at all concerned, you could also separate the bunk beds and just use them as single camping beds, or keep younger children on the bottom bunk. One of the sides of the top bunk is also fitted with three little net pockets, which are really handy for storing stuff that kids like to have within easy reach, such as bottles and nappies etc. Once they’re up and in the tent though, as they only take up the same amount of room as one camp bed, there is plenty of space left for the sprawl of kiddo paraphernalia.

Camping bunk beds for kids: Hi Gear Duo Bunk review

If you’re tight on space in the car it can be easier to separate the poles from the bag so it packs down into smaller spaces. My overall top pick is the Kid-O-Bunk Children's Portable Mobile Camping Bed as it versatile, well-reviewed and looks the best overall too.These portable kids bunk beds are collapsible, concertina-style, so you can make them into two single beds if you prefer. They are connected together by a steel frame, which is easy to build – simply slot into place and fasten with a thick strip of velcro. My daughters were 5 and 3 years old when we first bought these foldable bunk beds and as mentioned above, they were absolutely fine on them. I think if you have a child who is used to sleeping in a bed, they’d manage very well, especially with the side panel and lipped edges.
