We purchased this original and also the XL for my husband. This cot goes up super easy. Less than 5 minutes! Love it! My only complaint is that one of the straps broke with the first pull! I'm guessing that it was a bad sewing job on this particular unit. As the other cot (XL one) is fine. I was able to sew it back on, so it's not worth sending back. I would however recommend spending the few extra dollars for the XL cot, as this has very little head room and space inside. If you are a smaller person, it is more than ample. It is extremely comfortable. Love that it has the double flaps, so you can open all the "windows" and have the big screens zipped and have great airflow. Take down was just as easy. Less than 5 minutes and in the bag. We camp with friends and I wanted something that I didn't have to drag an air mattress around (as I have a really bad back) and this is perfect! It really is an all in one. We put the two cots next to one another, so we are still close, but still have our own space. I didn't feel that the "double" cot would give us enough space for two people. I'm happy we went this route.
