Don't like sleeping under canvas? Try the Centuple system - Get Out With The Kids (2022)

Is someone in your family is reluctant to come camping?

If you want all the creature comforts of home when you are camping, or someone in your family is reluctant to come camping without them, then one of the big bugbears is having to sleep on the floor.

Yes, it can be cold, hard, and uncomfortable, though, with the right sleeping mat or airbed, this need not be the case. However, nothing quite beats sleeping in bed.

“Nothing quite beats sleeping in bed”

Outwell have tried to address this with their Centuple sleep system.

The Outwell Centuple consists of the very popular Outwell Posadas camp bed and the Centuple mattress that goes with it.

Outwell Posadas Camp Bed

The Outwell Posadas is one of the most popular camp beds out there. And for good reason.

Trying out the Outwell Posadas Camp Bed

It offers great support, so it doesn’t sag too much, yet it also has enough give so that it’s not too firm. It is also easy to transport and put up.

The Posadas is available either as a single or double camp bed. The double provides support for each occupant so that you don’t end up rolled together in a big heap in the middle of the bed.

Outwell Centuple

The Outwell Centuple is a separate mattress that fits over the top of the Posadas camp bed, with elastic on each corner tho hold it in place.

When you buy the Outwell Centuple, the Outwell Posadas comes with it.

Again, there’s both a single and a double version.

Inside the Outwell Centuple is a foam mat, which gives a little bit more comfort when using the camp bed, as well as additional insulation for a better night’s sleep when under canvas.

The Centuple Mat Thickness

The cover is designed to hang over the side of the camp bed, hiding the legs, and giving your camp bed the visual appearance that’s similar to a bed at home.

The cover can be removed and washed.

The photo below shows what you can achieve in one of the Outwell Master Bedrooms. There’s a double Centuple sleep system with a double Outwell Conqueror Sleeping Bag. Plus, there’s enough room for a side table each side.

The Outwell Centuple and Conqueror Double sleeping bag make for a very comfortable and warm camping bed.

Outwell Centuple and Posadas Video

Here’s a video we made when first setting up the Outwell Posadas and Centuple sleeping system.

Using the Outwell Centuple

Everyone in the family wants to sleep on it, so we now have a rota!

Since making that video, we’ve taken the Outwell Centuple on several camps. Everyone in the family wants to sleep on it, so we now have a rota! 🙂

Testing the Outwell Centuple in our Outwell Montana tent. The side table make this a very sophisticated set-up 😉

Firstly, you do need enough space in your tent to make the best use of it. If you have a tent bedroom where the sides of the tent slope a lot, then you might find that the end of your bed is pushing up against the sloping sides of your tent.

We have been using it in the Outwell Montana 6SA, which has the longer ‘Master Bedroom’ layout, and so there was plenty of room.

Secondly, you need enough space to transport it.
The Posadas Bed folds down well and lays near the top of our trailer, with the rolled up Centuple mat usually travelling in the boot of the car.

Both the Centuple mattress and the Posadas camp bed each have a bag.

Sleeping on the Centuple system has been very comfortable

Sleeping on the Centuple system has been very comfortable. Your tent certainly feels a lot more ‘upmarket‘ when you can just get into bed, and step out of bed in the morning, rather than having to get up and down off the floor.

We’ve been using the Outwell Centuple with the excellent Outwell Conqueror Sleeping bag, which is a top sleeping bag that feels more like a duvet at home. This further gives the feel of a bed.

    Real issue is you cannot buy the Centuple anywhere in the U.K. anymore. So it’s not really an option. Not this year anyway. Shame.

    Ok thanks Gav. I’ve serached and can’t find any but glad they are still available. Outwell also have none. I appreciate the it’s not camping season as such but I didn’t realise all stocks would be run down quite so low. In new times camping so a bit naive in these things. Vango told a well known camping shop that once things run out now then they stay run out till next year! I was trying to buy their family shelter. Amazing. Not great customer service is it?

    This item appears discontinued! Most annoying as it looked like just what we needed.

      No, they’re still available though you may find that many places have sold out of stocks at this time of year.

    Now you have tried the Vango Shangri-La 15 and the Outsell Dreamboat SIMs how do you feel about the Posadas and Centuple? Which win out for comfort and practicality?

      Personally, I found the thickness of these large SIMs more comfortable. However, I think the deciding factor is if people want to “get into a bed” rather than “get down on the floor”. A camp bed system like this is much easier to get into and out of. Also, if someone really has a phobia of camping due to insects, they may feel more secure in a bed than on the floor.
      In terms of storage, both take up a significant amount of space. However, with a camp bed, you’ll need to put that at the bottom of your car boot, whereas the SIMs are lightweight and can sit on the top of stuff.
      I recently tested a very thick Dreamboat on an Outwell Campbed, and that was very comfortable. However, difficult to manage as the mattress was so thick it would slide off the bed.
