Camping aficionados will tell you all about the communion with nature and finding yourself. Great. However, at least in our opinion, no matter how breathtaking your surroundings are, they will become less so after a night of sleeping on the hard, uneven ground. Add some rain to the mix and your fun camping trip will turn into hell.
However, there might be some good news. Fear no more… tent cots are here. Combining all the perks of a tent and a cot, these mutant creations will make sleeping in nature just like home. Well…probably better if you consider the fresh air.
And while there might still be room for improvement, here are the 3 Best camping tent cot beds for you to choose from:
1. Kamp-Rite Double Tent Cot
This lovely ‘room for two’ tent cot will make camping an enjoying and comfortable experience even for those who despise sleeping in nature. And before you start thinking this will be a hassle to put together, relax, as the sturdy structure is easy to set-up and even easier to wheel around in its roller.
Its lightweight yet strong aluminum frame will support the structure and you without any problems, and the opaque, forest green, nylon fabric (190 TPU) will let you keep your privacy. As a plus, the high from the ground sleeping platform will keep dry and safe from any potential snakes and bugs.
For a bit of sunlight you have the option of two overhead zippered windows, one at each end of the tent top. For an extra dose of comfort, the sleeping surface is made out of durable Cordura nylon. Sleep soundly and enjoy being surrounded by nature.
2. Kamp-Rite Oversize Tent Cot
Also elevated from the ground – we simply love this feature– the Oversize Tent Cot is a durable, heavy duty 210D sleeping tent. The high quality material it’s made of, topped with a much-needed rain fly will have you sleeping like a baby. The 12 extra inches, when compared to the original model, will give you more head and elbow room. Pretty awesome.
This unit’s versatile design will allow you to use it as more than you would a simple tent – it can be a chair, a lavish lounge or even a plain cot. As with all Kamp-Rite models, this one is also made of high-grade aluminum (anti-rust) and quality 420-denier nylon fabric. Durability is key!
3. Kamp-Rite Tent Cot Original Size Tent Cot
As opposed to the other models, this one is the standard, quintessential tent cot. Made out of high-quality materials – no surprise here – this unit will allow you to sleep comfortably 11 inches above the ground.
In the daytime, you can even turn your tent into a perfect lounge-chair so you can catch up on some reading, keep cozy while fishing or just contemplate nature. No matter where you prefer to camp and regardless of the weather you will find out that this tent can handle almost everything.
