There’s nothing worse than sleeping on the cold floor of your tent. For your next off the grid expedition, put some distance between you and the ground with a Twin Speedy Stretcher from Zempire.
With the flick of the wrist you can get your bed sorted out for the rest of your trip, as this stretcher folds out in seconds. The Twin Speedy is much sturdier than your average bed because of its leg configuration, which uses opposing angles to ensure the middle of the bed stays sturdy. The top of the stretcher has two padded headrests, so you’ll have that extra comfort while you sleep even if you forget to bring a pillow along. And as a plus, you can get more out of your living space by chucking your gear or boots under your bed out of the way.
The elastic straps attached to the corners allow a camp mat to be used on top, which means no more sliding around in the middle of the night. The heavy duty surface is built to survive a thrashing from you, the dog or the harsh outdoor conditions so it'll see you through many future trips. For your next camping trip, take a Twin Speedy along so you and your partner can get a good night’s sleep away from your cold tent floor.
Great bed easy to open and put away, very sturdy, had it with a 5cm mat, wasnt comfortable needed to be thicker
Use it daily with a double mattress and pillow topper. Hardly feel the centre ridge. Can sleep across it. Great bed for just being on the move. Easy and quick to put up. Very happy with purchase. Thanks Snowys.
The bed was easy to fold out and pack up. It made for a much more comfortable nights sleep... much better than an airbed on its own.
can this be used as a temporary/foldaway base for a normal double mattress for my guest room?
While there is nothing stopping you from using the Zempire Twin Speedy Stretcher as a temporary base, the one thing to be aware of is the support bar that runs through the middle of the stretcher. This bar can sometimes disrupt the comfort of the double mattress by raising it where the bar is and then falling away to where you would lie. We often recommend it is a more comfortable solution to use two single mattresses with the double stretchers.
We want to put a swag on top to camp as I currently can't use our roof top tent 😔 - but would like to know if these stretchers are built to be exposed to the outdoors ...
The stretcher beds are made from powder coated steel which is crack/peel/chip etc. resistant. While this coating is far more durable than paint, it is not totally immune to abrasion. These products are durable and built for the outdoors, but as with any steel product, once the surface is exposed, rust can/will appear and if left unchecked will spread. Having said that I would not hold any great concern that rust is likely to become an issue given how long it would take for it to spread extensively - if it is of great concern you can always spray any exposed surfaces with a little Rustoleum or a similar product which would inhibit the rust from spreading.
Or are there more appropriately designed stretchers for swags.
It’s going to depend on how big your double swag is, you don’t really want the swag to hang over the stretcher. Also keep in mind that there is a bar down the middle which some people find uncomfortable as it may raise your swag slightly in the middle. This stretcher is 193L x 132W x 47H cm so grab a tape measure and compare it to your swag.
We’ve only got one double stretcher (this Twin Speedy) and one queen stretcher (Oztrail Easy Fold) in our range so there isn't a lot to choose from.
As long as the swag fits (without overhang) and the combined weight of swag weight of two people doesn’t exceed the rated capacity - then you could use them together if that’s what you prefer.
The legs look stronger on this bed, but it is smaller then the oztrial one
Both the Oztrail Easy Fold Quen and the Zempire Twin Speedy Stretcher have a weight rating of 200kg, we wouldn't recommend using either stretcher if the combined weight is 210kg - as it wouldn't be a safe thing to do.
is there a bar in the middle? how comfy is this as is? how quick and easy is this to set up? is this better then the oztrail queen? would an exped double mat fit on this??
I've just checked the display model, and the Zempire Twin Speedy Stretcher Bed does indeed have a bar down the middle.
In terms of comfort it is a flat sleeping surface with no cushioning, so most people would prefer to use it with a mat on top, but that comes down to personal preference really.
This bed just unfolds out, so you don't have to put anything any parts together so it's very easy to set up.
The Oztrail Easy Fold Queen is a little wider and longer than the Speedy so its probably more comfy for 2 adults as you'll have a bit more room.
An Exped Megamat duo will be slightly too big on top of the Twin Speedy but that’s not going to effect your sleep that much as it will only overhang a few centimetres.
