Title: Tent with integral air mattress

Abstract: A tent with integral air mattress for improving camping comfort and including a base member composed of a bottom, water resistant layer and at least one inflatable air mattress attached to the top of the bottom layer. A support frame extends upward from the base member and supports a fabric shell so as to define a tent interior. The bottom surface of the bottom layer includes a series of intersecting grooves for permitting air flow and water flow underneath the tent. The shell is attached to a skirt member which extends from the base member. The air mattress does not cover the entire top surface of the bottom layer, so that a portion of the bottom layer adjacent the door of the tent is exposed, forming a flat area suitable for placing shoes and other gear thereon. The support frame preferably comprises a plurality of telescoping support poles which can be locked in an extended position through a twisting motion of the support poles.
