This cot is easy to setup or takedown I have not used it for camping but I used for an extra bed when I had several family members over for my daughter's wedding I used one of my self inflating camp mattress with it and my family said it was very comfortable and liked it was up High. So no crawling up off a floor mat
On a flat surface, this little self-inflating mattress performs as advertised. But if you were thinking of using it with the Kamp Rite Cot, as some of the literature seems to suggest -- think 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 the cot will not only create a weird, hot mattressy bubble around the sleeper, it will also ruin the pad.
It is heavy and bulky but it does provide great cushioning on lumpy surfaces. The instructions say it takes several days to self inflate. I found it inflated in 1 day - still something to plan for. It is flocked on one side and heavy vinyl plastic on the other. A pad or some other fiber layer helps with preventing the heat build up during sleep.
