A Step by Step Guide to Sleeping in Your Car

We’ve been sleeping for as long as we can remember. In fact, we practice it almost every night. It’s something we’ve been doing since we were a baby and, at the risk of sounding arrogant, we’ve considered going semi-pro on multiple occasions. Yet even with all of this experience under our belts, we sometimes find that we need a little assistance when it comes to practicing our craft in new environments while car camping. Fortunately, Luno has put together a comprehensive step-by-step guide to sleeping in the car. This way you can take to the great outdoors and snooze like a pro from wherever the road may take you.

Step 1: Remove the Luno Signature Air Mattress from its sleek carrying case and grab the two smaller base extenders (if your car needs them).

Step 2: Plug your Luno Signature Air Mattress into your car’s DC outlet and attach it to said rectangular parts.

Step 3: Turn the pump on and inflate both sections as you consider tinkling in the woods while your bed is underway.

Step 4: Realize that your camping air mattress will be fully inflated in less time than it takes to nature pee and decide to hold it for a while longer.

Step 5: Place your freshly puffed base extenders in the back seats’ foot space to fill the gap between the front and back seats and maximize potential bed space.

Step 6: Roll out the deflated mattress halves, logo side up, in the space you plan to use for the night’s hibernation.

Step 7: Inflate the mattress tops and silently panic over the fact that you forgot to pack your toothbrush.

Step 7a: Resolve that cavemen never used toothbrushes so you’re probably fine.

Step 8: Stand in awe as you admire how remarkably quickly the Luno Signature Air Mattress inflates.

Step 8a: Think of what else is possible with the wonders of technology.

Step 8b: Contemplate whether you will clone yourself in the future.

Step 9: Lay the mattress over the expansive space that has been created thanks to those comfortable base extenders from step 5.

Step 10: Marvel at how much space there is to (p)lay on your newly-inflated bed.

Step 11: Immediately and enthusiastically starfish on the massive bed and thank the car camping gods for all they have blessed you with.

Step 12: Realize that the amazing Luno air pump works so well that your car bed is a tinge too firm.

Step 13: Use the push-button comfort valve to release the tiniest bit of air so that your mattress is perfectly adjusted to your liking.

Step 14: Turn off all car lights to ensure that the car battery doesn’t crap out in the middle of the night.

Step 14a: Recall that time you electrocuted yourself with the toaster oven and say a silent prayer that you never have to use jumper cables for as long as you live.

Step 15: Crack your car windows so that you don’t wake up in a soggy and stuffy shoebox in the morning.

Step 16: Lay some sheets (or your sleeping bag) out and make a mental note to track down a toothbrush in the near future.

Step 17: Collapse into bed and bask in the warmth of the day’s sunburn as you drift off.

Step 18: Dream that you’re sleeping atop the most comfortable bed in the entire world while the faint sounds of nature lull you into a deeper and deeper sleep.

Step 19: Wake up and realize that dream was a reality.

Step 20: Take on the day well-rested so that you can climb that mountain, catch that wave, and carpe all of the diem!
