What’s more frustrating than not being able to figure out the right size air mattress that suits your purpose the best? One needs to consider many essential factors while choosing an air mattress, and the size still remains the most crucial factor of all.

Whether you need an air mattress for your home, car, tent, guest bed, or traveling, without knowing about air mattress sizes, you’ll likely buy the wrong size for you.

Let’s dive deeply into air mattress sizes and explore the exact dimensions of each.

A twin-size air mattress is the smallest in the air mattress group and comes with the least weight-carrying capacity. Usually, a twin air mattress’s dimensions lie around 75 x 39 x 24 inches(where 75 is the length, 39 is the width and 24 inches is the height).

The height of an air mattress can range anywhere between 8-24 inches depending on the model type, whether it belongs to single or double height. Single high is the low-profile inflatable mattress, usually 8-12 inches thick or tall.

While double high holds around 14-24 inches of thickness. Remember, there can be a slight difference between both single and double high airbeds, but mostly, it’s not noticeable.

A twin air mattress is an ideal pick for sleeping outdoors, in RVs, tents, car back seats, or rooms with narrow floor space, but only for an individual. Due to their smaller size, they easily fit in tents and even in small cars and still leave enough floor space to keep other essential accessories, such as your bag, lamp, and a portable heater.

Twin XL air mattress holds almost the exact dimensions as that of a standard twin airbed. The only difference is they are slightly longer than a twin. If we talk about their dimensions, they measure 80 x 39 inches(80 inches in length and 39 inches in width).

Because they don’t add significant value to an average-height user, people prefer the typical twin air mattress over a twin XL. On the flip side, for a tall and heavy person who likes to spend his time alone, whether at outings or at home, a twin XL would be an ideal choice.

Even though the standard twin XL beds can easily accommodate a tall person, some brands even offer 90 inches of length in their Twin XL air mattress, and its best example is the Meitos Twin Size Air Mattress with a Built-in Pump. As mentioned above, this multi-purpose bed is 90 inches long, 39 inches wide, and raises 17 inches off the ground.

Are you looking for a little more room to accommodate some midnight rolling? A full-size air mattress, also known as a double-size inflatable mattress, provides a total increase over a twin in width.

A full-size blow-up bed counting 75 inches long x 54 inches wide is equal in length but has a little more width compared to a typical twin inflatable bed. These air mattresses are a good choice for couples or someone who rolls while sleeping.

Along with the larger dimensions, a full-size air mattress holds more weight-carrying capacity than any twin or twin XL blow-up mattress, which allows them to accommodate one or two normal-weight people at a time.

Apart from this advantage, keep in mind that they are heavy, take much time in inflation and deflation, and have much space in tents. Also, if you’re looking for a full-size bed for your car or truck, it’s wise to go with a low-profile mattress like Intex Comfort Plush Mid-Rise Dura-Beam Airbed.

This comfy piece from Intex contains everything you’ll ever require in a reliable double or full-size airbed. A hassle-free interior electric pump design, a convenient 3-minute pump time, and an add-on duffel hold bag for improved portability.

The bed also has a water-immune herded top for maximum durability and air retention. Furthermore, full-size air mattresses pose a comfortable 13 inches off the bed. You can rest guaranteed that you are obtaining sufficient support.

A standard queen size air mattress measures around 80 inches long x 60 inches wide. Like any other air mattress, queen size airbed’s height can also go up to 24 inches depending on the brand and type. 

Also, you may notice slight variations in terms of their dimensions, but only by 1-2 inches. If it’s a single-height queen bed, the dimensions would be roughly 80 x 60 x 8-12 inches and 80 x 60 x 18-24 inches if it’s a double-height queen bed.

Due to the larger dimensions and relatively heavy weight, they might not fit easily in your vehicle or regular tents. However, for couples who use large tents and want something to sleep together while camping, a queen bed is a great choice. Plus, it can also be the best option for a guest bed or indoor usage.

With a huge carrying capacity of up to 600 pounds, one person or a couple can sleep comfortably and share ample space on the queen inflatable bed. However, You should consider some important points before buying a queen-size mattress for a specific purpose.

If you want it for sleeping in your vehicle while traveling, make sure your car or truck has sufficient space to carry a queen bed because, in most cases, they don’t fit. 

The same applies in the case of camping or other outdoor activities. Ensure your tent is large enough to have a queen-size air mattress inside. Otherwise, you’ll need to use it outside the tent, which is sometimes not safe, especially in cold weather.

A standard king air mattress is usually 80 inches long x 76 inches wide. But, some low-profile king-size beds measure 80 x 72 inches. For example, this JEAOUIA king low-height inflatable mattress matches the same dimensions mentioned, 80 x 72 x 9 inches.

On the flip side, most regular double-height king air mattress holds a little more width than low-profile ones, just like this EnerPlex Double Height Bed which is 76 inches wide. In simple words, a king-size mattress’s dimensions lie roughly 80 x 72-76 x 8-22 inches.

King-size provides exclusive-level comfort as they can add up to 16 inches of width to the measurements of a standard queen. As a result, they offer more comfortable sleeping space for each sleeper compared to any twin, full, or queen-size bed.

Unlike a queen-size bed, it can accommodate 2-3 people of any weight category at a time, yet the weight limit of the mattress plays an important role. It can also accommodate 4 people in some cases, but this will lead to overcrowding, and there may not be enough space for everyone.

Here comes the largest size in the whole air mattress group, California King. A California King air mattress measures 84 x 72 x 8-24 inches (84 inches in length and 72 inches in width).

These airbeds are a bit longer than a regular king, around 4-6 inches and the rest of the characteristics remain the same. They even come with the exact same load-carrying capacity sometimes.

California King airbeds are the heaviest and less practical for outdoor usage. Portability is a bit of a concern due to their larger size and heavy weight. Don’t think of using it in your car or truck; it won’t fit.

Still, it can be an excellent option to be used occasionally at home as a guest bed. A king-size air mattress is hard to find so is the California King.

Only 3-4 pieces of California King are available online which are true to size, such as the King Koil Luxury California King(84 x 72 x 20 inches), Englander King Size Airbed(84 x 72 x 20 inches), and OlarHike Inflatable Bed(84 x 72 x 18 inches).

How To Choose The Right Size Air Mattress

Purpose:

Even though there are plenty of air mattresses to choose from, you still need to specify your purpose first to get the perfect size that fits the space without any extra adjustments.

Considering the purpose is also vital because you sometimes get to see variations with the exact same model of an air mattress. Both length and width measure the same, but things get change when it comes to height.

If it’s a low-height bed, you’ll probably feel like sleeping on the ground until you use a frame to get some elevation. On the other hand, you won’t be able to use a high-profile bed in your vehicle. A low-height mattress looks like a more comfortable option in that case.

Home: If you need an inflatable bed for home purposes that can be used as a guest bed or for occasional sleepovers, a high-profile bed would be a good alternative to a traditional bed.

 Nevertheless, don’t forget to keep the number of sleepers in mind, which will help you decide whether you need a twin, full, queen, or king-size bed.

Outings: If you need an air mattress only for outings, think about the space inside your tent. Your air mattress should cover the area without making any extra effort. 

And, if there’s some walking space left inside the tent after setting up the bed, that would be great.

Traveling: For resting in a vehicle on long road trips, low-height inflatable mattresses are preferred as they are relatively more compact than double-height air mattresses and easily fit at the car’s or truck’s back. If you’re going to use it without folding the seat, you should go with a twin-size or car air mattress.

However, to rest more comfortably in a car, i.e., after folding the back seat, a full-size air mattress will easily fit. Or, you can measure the gap inside your vehicle and cross-check it with the air mattress dimensions to get a more accurate size.

Size of the Person:

Consider the size of the person who will be using the air mattress the most. For an average-height individual, a twin-size air mattress can do the job for you. 

However, in the case of a tall person, go for a tall air mattress with at least 80 inches of length, something like SoundAsleep Dream Series Twin XL Bed or Meitos Twin XL Mattress.

Moreover, remember the weight of that person, as all air mattresses have their own weight limit, which ranges from 300-800 pounds depending on the size. The larger the size, the more weight it can hold.

Number of Sleepers:

How many people will be sleeping on the air mattress at a time? As we know, twin size is the smallest size meant for only one person, so it doesn’t make any sense to buy it if the number of sleepers is more than one.

To accommodate two people at a time, you’ll need a full or queen-size airbed. You can also think about a king-size bed to get more sleeping space, but in the majority of cases, a full or queen-size mattress solves the issue.

Sleeping Style:

Some people don’t like sharing the bed with someone else, while some don’t sleep unless someone gives them company. A wider air mattress would be a good pick if you toss and turn while sleeping. Or else, select one according to the number of sleepers.

Budget:

The larger the mattress, the more you’ll pay for it. The same applies to air mattresses too. King-size air mattresses are the most expensive, while twin is the cheapest, and all these sizes have their own pros and cons. 

While keeping the exact requirements in mind, choose an airbed that falls within your budget. Because there is no point in buying an expensive king-size bed if you’ll be sleeping on it alone.
