Phil & Ted´s Traveller Bed

We have found the best solution for us while cycling is to give Leo some consistency with his sleeping space so we always put him in the Phil & Ted's traveller bed which at just over 3kg is not ideal, but is the best solution we can find. The aluminium frame fits in an Ortlieb rollbag lengthways (or just goes across the back of my bike) and the material, mattress, two kinds of sleeping bags and also sheets for the mattress all fit in a small Ortlieb pannier which Isabelle carries.

It fits inside our Hilleberg Nallo 4GT tent and is even more useful in hotels and guest houses where we have had to come up with some very creative solutions to stop him rolling off beds or escaping and hassling us in his sleep. The best thing is the consistency - he always knows that when he is inside the bed it is time to sleep. We also put a bottle of water in the corner for if he wakes up hot or thirsty and he has now learned to do this in his sleep and not disturb us.
