Sleeping suggestions for a mattress-less house
May 15, 2012 8:16 PM Subscribe
I'm subletting a house for three months in a town three hours from home. (I'll be there temporarily for work.) House doesn't come with a bed. What's the most comfortable sleeping arrangement I can make for myself without buying or transporting a mattress?

-Again, I don't want a real mattress. I don't want to worry about transporting, buying or sleeping on a used one. Let's consider a real mattress/bed out of the question.
-I'm 31, 5'4, small-framed, an insomniac and a hot sleeper. While I won't be in an overly warm climate, it will be a northern Midwest summer. No back problems. I'll be the only one in the bed.
-I'm open to air mattress brand suggestions, and also any other alternative, easily portable, creative, comfortable sleeping ideas.
-All materials must fit in my four-door sedan (actually in the car, not strapped to the roof).
-The house does have a couch, which would normally be my go-to, but other roommates in the house will occasionally be there and the couch is communal, in a communal area and wouldn't fit in the bedroom anyway.
I know I won't be able to replicate my cushy soft queen at home, but I'd like to get as comfortable as I can for the circumstances. Top of my price range is $250, but I'm willing to fudge a little for the right idea.
Portability is the main concern, comfort a very close second.
