Intex Raised Downy Review
Best Budget Air Mattress

The Answer to Your Sleeping Arrangements!

This may seem a strange way to title an air mattress review, but it seems like a good idea because it’s rare I get a bulk order of beds. Usually, it’s just individuals that need them for a variety of reasons. However, on this particular day I was faced with a customer who had already bought a few of the air beds I’m about to review and was so pleased with the Raised Downy, he wanted more (lots more)!

The Intex Raised Downy Air Mattress

The bed I’m talking about is the Intex Raised Downy Air Mattress which is a queen size, and this customer owns a complex of properties he uses to rent out to people on vacation. This got me thinking. Although this Intex will work very well for anyone who is looking for an air mattress, there may be people looking at my website that have a business like this but haven’t thought about using this type of bed.

You see, my customer turned out to be quite enterprising, and he realized that he could easily accommodate more people with more beds. So to attract more visitors, he launched an advertising campaign offering free extra-beds.

So, on to what makes this air bed so good.


This bed from Intex is one of the best when it comes to leaks, and this is down to the way in which you inflate and deflate it. Instead of using an external pump it’s in-built, and when it’s not in use the hatch to the valve is closed meaning it’s much harder for air to leak. All you need to do is plug the power cord into an electrical socket and away you go. This makes inflating and deflating much easier on the legs and it’s super fast as well.

The top is flocked with vinyl beams’ that are 15 gauge, and for the sides 16 gauge which also adds to durability as well as comfort.


Of course, this is the one thing everyone wants when they climb into bed and this model doesn’t disappoint. The flocking over the top will stop bedding from moving around while you’re asleep, and because the pump is in-built it’s much easier to get a comfort level that suits you. If you want maximum capacity, you can have it. If you prefer a softer surface to sleep on just let some of the air out.


This air mattress is not heavy when it’s inflated and can easily be moved into a position that suits you. It also comes with its own duffel bag for easy and compact storage when it’s not in use. Once deflated, which really only takes matter of minutes, the bed can be rolled up and popped inside the bag.


Considering the air mattresses my customer already had were still going strong after 2 years, it’s little wonder that he decided to buy some more. You don’t have to take my word for it though, just take a look at Amazon for some great deals on price. You will also find well over one thousand 5 star reviews, if that isn’t proof enough…
