If you’ve been on the road for four hours in long weekend traffic, you probably want to get your campsite set up ASAP so you can start relaxing. The Easy Fold Single Jumbo Stretcher from Oztrail is a hard wearing and well-designed stretcher that'll have your ready for bed in under 10 seconds.
Tall campers can rejoice as this stretcher doesn’t have head or foot cross bars so you won’t have a metal pole digging into while you sleep. This stretcher is also a good option if your back needs a firm surface, as it’s fully flat with a soft touch fabric top. The durable powder coated frame will keep you sleeping solidly all night, and can easily be wiped if it gets a little grubby with use.
The coolest thing about this stretcher is that once you’re all warm and comfy in your sleeping bag – you can stay that way as it comes with a detachable mesh gear loft to stash your tablet, book or even a midnight snack. The side organiser pocket has two mesh pockets and one long pocket so you can keep your phone, GPS and other important gear at arm’s length.
I spend months living remotely each year in a swag, this Jumbo Stretcher is amazing. It's quick to set up, comfortable, doesn't take up much room to store. I totally recommend it.
Could we join two of these stretchers together and put a double swag on top. I know I can buy a double stretcher however we need a higher maximum weight capacity than 200kg. Or do you have any single stretchers that are made so they can be attached together to create a double.
I've had a look through our range, and it appears that we don't have any single stretchers in our range that are made to be attached.
We haven't tried this ourselves, so this may be ok but keep in mind that you would need to make sure that the weight was distributed evenly on both sides to correspond with the separate weight rating for each stretcher.
Each stretcher will still only have a maximum of 150kg, so if you shift during the night there may be a problem with stability and balance so I can't say it's something we would recommend.
Looking & comparing for wife & I on stretchers or matts. I am 100kg - she is a @ 64 Kg -seeking advice on selection between Easy Fold Jumbo Oztrail - Oztent King Goanna & Oztent Gecko? appreciate your opinion & tips - also tips for eaze o& quality of self inflating 4wd matts for couples or good quality air beds for same
If you’re after a durable hard wearing stretcher, the Gecko or the King Goanna would be your best bet.
The Gecko and the King Goanna as they are both slightly padded, wider than most stretchers (80cm) and are very sturdy so either is a good choice depending on the length you prefer (that’s the only difference between the two)
The Oztrail Easy Fold is going to be a little bit wider and has a gear loft and organiser – so it has a few more features - but I would say that the Oztent stretchers are a bit more comfy, and slightly better made which is why I would put them above the Easy Fold.
As for air beds, the Coleman Aerobed is a tried and tested customer favourite. If you’re interested in a mat to use on a stretcher or on the ground, one of the most comfortable one hands down is the Mega Deluxe (single or double) but if you’re after a budget option (that’s still comfy and easy to use) the Zempire Bomberpad (single or double size) is the way to go.
I know you don't stock it, but would the Dune Premium Jumbo self inflating mattress in king single go well on the jumbo oztrail easy stretcher?
We’re not all that familiar with that range, but from looking at the specs of the Dune Premium Jumbo King Single, it's 195cm long and 90cm wide so it should fit well on top of the Oztrail Easy Fold Single Jumbo as it's 210cm long x 90cm wide.
Looking for a stretcher for my 7 yr old. He sleeps in a double bed at home so I was thinking a wider stretcher would suit him best. He is a restless sleeper and am concerned about him rolling out. How does the quality of the two stretchers compare ? Do you think the padding on the Oztent would be adequate or would you suggest a mat on top and if so what would you recommend. Finally, we are planning a 4 month trip from Sydney through the centre then onto the Kimberleys next year. This will be his bed on the camper floor for the duration. We will be going through the centre in Winter.
The Gecko is an excellent stretcher, but it can rock slightly so the Easy Fold would be the better option for a restless sleeper.
It’s always a good idea to add a mat for insulation, and in general for comfort (especially for a longer trip).
Another option would be to forget about a stretcher and go for a thicker self-inflating mat. This provides insulation for cold weather, and your son won't be able to fall off the bed.
As for thicker self-inflating mats, the Zempire Bomberpad is a great budget option, or if you wanted to go for a top of the line model – the Black Wolf Mega Deluxe and the Exped Megamat are the most comfortable mats in our range.
What is the maximum weight it will hold?
I've just double checked on the product itself, and the Oztrail Easy Fold Single Jumbo Stretcher has as rated capacity of 150kg.
