Default air bed modiforcation

as im sure most of you guys on here are the same mind as me and like to be able to find solutions to problems im hoping you might be abl;e to come up with some ideas to help.
i have a folding camper and i need an air bed for it. problem is its not a standard size it is about 20 cm narrower than a standard double. you cant buy one the right size so i thought about trying to make a double smaller. my first thought is to lay it out flat and sandwiching the air bed in some sort of fabric i thought i would try running an iron along the edge 200 mm in to heat seal it shut. do you think this might work or any other ideas.

What size do you need?

Over here, beds are either 160, 180, 200, or 220 wide. I knew air beds come in a few different widths too.

Let me know what size you need, I could have a look next time I am in town if you want.

Don't think running an iron down it would create a strong enough weld. You would need something like one of those vacuum sealers which put a lot of constant pressure and heat - but much larger.

Maybe you could get the top & bottom to stick together then cut the excess off and use a length of the surplus as a large patch over the new seam with plenty of the glue and try to put some weight on it for several hours while it cures properly. Could be a waste of a perfectly good air matress though.

That is a good point about not getting the force on it. Like your idea and it's only a 10 air bed so not to much lost if it don't work. Will go and get some glue tomorrow and try it.
