Our exceptionally comfortable air beds use internal air inflators: no hoses to run, no pumps to hide. And each mattress is shipped vacuum compressed in a single, manageable box, making installation incredible easy! Simply lay the compressed mattress on your sleep platform, cut the plastic that encases the mattress, allow the mattress to unroll, then plug it in and inflate the dual air chambers to your preferred firmness level. It's as easy as that! No assembly required.
