Advice on mattress and folding bed?

I am looking for a folding bed and mattress that is easily transportable. I'd prefer something that can be carried in a car but I am not sure if there is such a product. I'd prefer a firm mattress.

I should add saving space is secondary. Transportation of the bed is more of my concern, so I'd prefer a comfy sturdy bed which can be disassembled to a rickety space saver. Where should I be looking? Ikea, Costco, Kijiji?

Sounds like a futon (fits in a car / SUV).

But believe the hard part is going to be finding something that is foldable & firm.

You might want to also look at a blow up bed... They've come a long way in the last 10 years
Easiest when it comes to transportability.
And at least then you could control the firmness a bit.
