When I was married, I did the traditional box spring and mattress routine. When I moved to Arkansas, I adopted a small air mattress for the duration. Several months later, I went back to pick up my things and spent a few days in the old bed. I found it uncomfortable. Recently, I was very busy when the air mattress deflated and I didn't have time to replace it so I ended up on the floor. And oddly, I found it comfortable enough that the replacement air-bed has yet to be inflated.
What has your experience been?
