2013 Bighorn airbed losing air & replacement options

28 Mar 2019 23:45 #1 by Domono

Has anyone ever replaced their sofa air-bed with a foam or other type of mattress. We own a 2013 Bighorn, and have used the airbed for the grandkids a number of times, but it's already loosing air overnight and I'm looking for another type of solution other than replacing it with the same product !

Hey Domono,

Welcome to the Mattress Forum! :).

So sorry for the delay in getting back to you. When I was looking into this issue for you, I read on the site that many people complained of air leaks. There is a "repait kit" that comes with it, that seems to work if you are able to easily locate the leak. That said, many people replaced the air mattress. You can replace it with another air mattress or purchase the correct size foam, either memory foam or latex foam, but would certainly work well with grandkids.

I think 3" toppers work well for kids sleepovers, at our house we have a bunch ot twin size 3" latex toppers, mostly medium firmness, and everyone loves them, and of course, good latex lasts forever. If you are so inclined you can talk to any of our trusted members and they can steer you in the right direction. Either way, you should be ok with replacing it with your choice of material.

Thanks again
