Unique Portable Bed Rolls Back Into Automobile Trunk
THE latest in compact camping equipment for the touring motorist is a steel trunk which can be carried on the side or back of any automobile and opened at camp to divulge a rolled up bed, spring and braces. It weighs 100 pounds and carries a mattress, four blankets, two pillows and spring. The bed can be made up for use in three minutes according to G. A. Mayer, the California inventor. All of the frame parts are of the knock down variety and stow in the bottom of the trunk while the spring, mattress and bedding are rolled back into the trunk. The roller is operated with a detachable crank.
