We discovered the best Subaru Outback car camping mattress ever! This mattress is super comfortable, insulated, and fits the back dimensions of the car perfectly. This gear review talks about the Exped Megamat Duo 10 insulated self-inflating sleep pad.
We like keeping it simple when car camping. We take our dog, sleeping bags, pillows, two camp chairs, camp stove, kitchen gadgets, water, food, cooler, and personal items. To road trip across country in the Subaru with plenty of space, you’ll basically want a backpacking set up so minimize what you bring.
When planning our adventure to sleep in the back of our Subaru Outback, first, we just got in the back of the Subaru without a sleeping mattress or pad. Though doable, we decided it might be better not to wake up sore or stiff. Since this option was a no-go, we decided to do an online research project consisting of “what size mattress fits in the back of a Subaru Outback?”
