We do not use these for camping, so if you're looking for advice there, this may not help much. However, we do use them for overflow overnight guests at our weekend place at the lake. Everyone that sleeps on them looks skeptical, but they love them in the morning. They have pretty decent size feet on the legs, so I suspect they would be fine for use when camping on the ground. They unfold and fold easily and intuitively, so we are very happy with our purchase of two of them. I should also note that we use a foam twin size mattress pad on them.

I bought this cot in hopes that it might be comfortable Wow. Was I surprised. The cot is not only comfortable but I sleep through the whole night without the constant tossing and turning. As a larger person --- + lbs----it was exactly what I needed to enjoy my many camping trips. I definitely got a deal. The workmanship of the product is superior. It is very easy to put up and take down No disappointments in regards to pricing as well.
Purchased this for overnight trips in my hunting cabin. It doesn't compare to my King Size Pillow Top bed, but it does the trick. It's wide enough that I don't feel like I'm about to roll off of it in the middle of the night, and it's sturdy enough to give me confidence that it won't collapse on me.
This cot is reasonably sturdy and, while not in the slightest bit comfortable for someone 6' tall and 190 pounds, it offers a survivable night's sleep. Two important problems, however, of which you should be aware: 1) Although the swing-out legs offer good stability while you're sleeping, they do not really lock into place. If someone moves the cot without understanding this, they will collapse the moment weight is put on the unit. That's unsafe. 2) If you were thinking of using this unit with the Kamp Rite Single Inflating Pad, as some of the literature seems to suggest -- thing again. It does not work. The pad is designed for use on a flat surface. The Kwik Cot fabric support has a pronounced dip. Using the Kamp Rite pad on this cot will not only create a weird, hot mattressy bubble around the sleeper, it will also ruin the pad.
When they say over sized they mean it!!! This thing is HUGE! If I had purchased it just for the house I would have rated it 5 stars. It's easy to set up and very comfortable. BUT, it's not practical IMHO for camping. Folded up it's 2-3x larger than my 2 man TENT and it is very heavy. So, if you are looking for a cot for overnight guests, great.. this is what you want. If you are looking for a tent for camping, keep looking.
My wife and I wanted to get away from using air mattresses for camping so we bought two of these cots. We used them over Memorial Day weekend and they were great. Solid construction, comfortable, and worth every penny. I am a big guy, ~300lbs, it handled my girth beautifully. I have already recommended these to more than one friend.
We needed an extra bed downstairs for my 6'2" 260 lb son because we live in the south and do not have AC. He loves this cot! It is a great fit for him, it is very sturdy, and he sleeps quite comfortably! Set up is very easy! I definitely would recommend this cot for camping, extra sleeping space in your home, etc. We plan to take it with us when we "cabin camp" this summer. The carrying case is very sturdy and this makes it a great way to transport.
This product we've used without the padding an is not very comfy like that BUT I would advise buy the pad to go with it an it's a great product X-Lg size but yet folds nicely to keep stored away, it's also durable have not had any issues an have used it several times. I would recommend.
This camp cot is just what I was looking for. Very sturdy, easy setup. I am tall so the extra length is perfect. My legs and sleeping bag won't hang off the end. The cost was very reasonable. I would recommend this cot to anyone who loves to camp and be comfortable.
Very comfortable cot! Not used for camping, just extra sleeping space when traveling or at home. We are all a tall bunch, 6ft + and everyone has been pleased with the cot. It can be a little cumbersome when unfolding/folding, but really - that should be expected in an "oversized" item like this.
Bought this cot to be used in the house for overnight guests. My husband tried it out, he's 6'4, and said it was very sturdy and thinks it will work out great for us. Comes with a nice storage bag and is very easy to set up. Would definitely recommend.
