Kamp-Rite's versatile tent cot allows you to set up in seconds. The oversize size single unit folds to 32x36x6 and weighs just 25 pounds. The sturdy aluminum frame keeps you 11 inches off of the ground above the rocks, bugs and snakes. The 210D tent top and tape sealed rain fly will handle nearly every wet weather condition mother nature can dish out. All of our tent cots now come standard with a 3/8 inch foam insulating pad. The tent cot is ideal for any car or camper outing.
If you've done a fair amount of camping, you know that sleeping on a cot inside a roomy tent is far more comfortable than sleeping on the ground. Now you can combine both luxuries with the oversize Kamp-Rite tent cot, a fully framed and enclosed cot with nylon sides and tie-up no-see-um mesh doors and windows--just like a personal tent. The legs of the cot are suspended a full 11 inches off the ground, keeping you away from moisture, snakes, and rodents, so you needn't worry about waking up with a mouse inside your sleeping bag. More significantly, the cot is roomy and comfortable, with plenty of space to stretch out and sleep in style. (The oversize version offers 12 inches of additional headroom compared to the original tent cot, with extra elbow room on the sides as well.) Simply situate the tent cot on any piece of level ground, toss in your favorite sleeping bag or blanket, and you're ready for a great night of sleep. As a bonus, you can also collapse the tent cot into a flat cot orientation, letting you take full advantage of the sun's rays on a warm afternoon, or you can convert the cot into a lounge chair by tilting one end upward.
The tent cot's frame is made of lightweight yet durable aluminum, with anti-vibration aluminum nuts and bolts that won't loosen over time or rust. The "tent" portion of the product features durable 420-denier nylon fabric with no-see-um doors and windows that open on all four sides. When the outer nylon doors are zipped open and the interior no-see-um mesh doors are zipped closed, the tent cot is 100-percent insect-proof yet still encourages 360-degree airflow--a must for warmer climates. The durable one-piece Cordura nylon-fabric sleeping surface, meanwhile, is firm and level, helping you sleep soundly throughout the night. And should you encounter severe stormy weather, simply set up the "total encapsulation" rain fly.
Easy to set up and transport thanks to the heavy-duty carrying bag, the oversize tent cot measures 90 by 40 by 32 inches (W x H x D) when set up and 34 by 7 by 34 inches when folded. The cot also comes in alternate original and double sizes and is backed by a one-year warranty against defects.

Tent cot arrived well-packaged, (NOT "discretely", if you were considering this for a gift- it's just in a retail-type box, big pictures, etcetera), clear, simple instructions. Had it set-up outside in under five minutes, without the flyer. I got the "oversize" (XL twin) so I'd have room for a camera bag at my feet and it's really roomy. My sister and niece are both claustrophobic and said they wouldn't want to try it with the flaps closed (instead of screens only), but it feels bigger than it looks from outside, and I didn't have any problem with it. I'm about 5'9" & with a 2-inch pad inside, my head touched when I sat upright in the middle, but I had plenty of room to prop up and read, and to change clothes, etcetera. I also had room for my big pro-style camera bag at my feet and books above my pillow, plus a gallon jug of a water to one side.
Other reviewers said they had condensation problems with the rain fly on but, camping lakeside in Maine, where it poured, I had none. If you leave the end flaps rolled up when you put the rain fly on , the built-in awnings provide ventilation and cover right through the screens. I think you can get a mesh hammock for underneath, but I don't see the point- my rain boots stayed dry without it.
I've been camping for years and this tent is an excellent design. The overhead pocket-flaps at the ends face toward the windows, making it easy to reach up for flashlight, lipbalm, etc. The rain fly goes on fast and stays put. One of the straps that holds the cot open doubles to hold it closed after you fold it up. The built-in pad works perfectly protecting you from the bars underneath- I couldn't feel them at all. I did two nights without an additional pad, but it wasn't soft or especially comfortable, and it was colder that way, so bring a pad. I like that you can climb out on either side unless the rain fly is on.The carry bag is sturdy, which is great, because the darned thing is heavy. It's definitely for car-camping. With half the rear seat lying flat, it fit standing up against the left side windows in my 2007 Rav 4, leaving plenty of space for other gear. This would be a great option for teens wanting out of their parents or siblings tent. My young adult sons all loved it.
My ONLY criticisms are very minor:
1- A couple of lower loops or pockets for water bottles, please- I'm an American- cup-holders are my birthright!
2- Eyelets at the lower corners of the rain-fly's front door-flap would make it double as the perfect door awning. (Next time I'll take binder clips to use for this.)
3- The two bar-and-toggle clasps that hold up the longer-side door and screen flaps are a bit too far apart- if you don't roll the flaps precisely, part unrolls and slips out.
None of the above issues really bothered me, though. Overall, I love this tent- especially NOT worrying about the bottom leaking or being in a hollow and sliding to one end. It's roomy, comfortable, warm, and dry- all you could ask!
" The product quality is excellent, but BEWARE. According to Antonette at Kamp-Rite, there are supposedly TWO DIFFERENT product numbers for this tent-cot, one with a rainfly (#DTC 443) and one without (#TC 401). "
I camp about 4-5 times a year with a scout troop, since I have to set up/tear down alone (and often have other troop gear to setup) the TentCot had my attention right away. I have become accustom to using a cot while camping, If the choice was cot with no tent or tent with no cot...I'd take the cot, even though they are either bulky to carry (folding) or tedious to set up (poles).
My 1st load out was a large 6 person (which means 4 person) tent with a folding cot. While I could stand up in it, the large footprint meant picking up rocks and sticks, laying tarp, erecting tent (2 man job), installing fly & setting up my cot inside. I smartened up and went to a 2 person (again...1person) tent since it went up way quicker (1 man job), required less ground cleaning & took up less valuable space at tight campsites. With the cot inside I had just enough room for shoes and gear bag, everything was perfect.
Now cut the setup time from 30-40 minutes down to 5-7 minutes.
Same effective size (when using the space under cot for waterproof storage bags/totes) with more bed. My new setup allows me to go from the car to ANY camp spot quicker than anyone, unused spots previously considered too small for a tent.
I received my TentCot in a cardboard retail box without damage. Packing was so-so with bubble wrap applied to all 4 corners of the cot prior to putting it in the carry bag. The carry bag was a bit nicer than expected, pretty hefty feeling with a shoulder strap making it easy to walk and carry. Compared to my old folding camp cot this model is bigger and heavier but with the tote bag it is a hand free carry. I suspect a simple set of backpack style straps would make this even easier to lug around.
I did not read the instructions; I had previously watched videos on YouTube and had the basics down. Setup is pretty intuitive with the exception of the cot opening in "chair mode" and it taking a minute to figure out I had to pull on the tubes to clear the chair stop. Construction seemed well thought out, designed as a total package as opposed to simply adding a tent to a cot.
Starting from the bottom...
The 4 legs have plastic molded feet on the corners to add to its stability, it is a non-brittle material. In the video it shows assembly requiring you to attach plastic clips to the underside of the middle legs...Between the legs and the ground. I attached mine to the cross bar above the legs, the cot set up stable and tight.
While the stretched sleeping surface is solid on the top, a quick crawl under the Tentcot reveals 2 missing sections of tarp. The open areas are on the 2 parts that fold, you can see the foam thru these slits. Again the quality and dense feel of the foam was better than expected. It uses a very rubbery "heavy for its thickness" pad sandwiched between the top and bottom material of the cot for insulation, the addition of a pad or blanket inside makes a big difference in comfort.
The cot itself was a bit soft compared to my stiff as a board camp cot, while the padding and large size surely added to this feeling. Laying on my back it had a tiny bit of a hammock feel, on my side and belly (my go to) I could stretch out in comfort. EDIT: after a couple nights I can say that the cot is not NEARLY as stiff as any other cot I have used. It is like a stiff hammock.
The 2 side doors make it easy to sit down and slide into the cot; the end doors are convenient for storage access from outside and for the screens that give the feeling of no tent at all. All 4 doors roll up and can be tied off with quick tabs; the 2 side doors have a small Velcro vent door near the top. My only gripe with the doors is that the screen is on the inside, meaning that to roll up or down the solid doors you must be outside. On the bright side, the zippers are quality and easy to keep separated as the outer door has metal tabs & the screen has par cord tabs.
Inside you have the standard 2 strings hanging from the center of the ceiling (which is pretty roomy) to hang a light or fan, both would go a long way in this little tent. Both ends have mesh pockets for little items & though the ends taper down I had better than expected head/foot room. The oversized is not claustrophobic and the domed ceiling feels like a standard 2 man tent.
Prior reviews noted the dome poles being tough to install. Kamp-Rite must have made a change to the design and now instead of a sleeve for the poles the roof has a series of hooks.
The poles are easy to install and uninstall. Set up and breakdown are quick and easy, nearly every step can be done without dropping on your knees or bending over too far.
This cot will install over rougher ground, divots, roots & rocky areas with less visible damage to the ground than any tent its size. This TentCot will allow you to set up in areas where other tenters have not burnt a tent shape dead spot into the ground, closer to shady areas or in-between other tents in busy camps.
Also, if you roll up the side doors it is easy to lean in and pick the whole thing up to move to shade, sun or under an awning.
I doubt I will use the rain fly in normal light sprinkle rain (unlike nearly all tents today, this model has a solid top) but it is nice to know it is there if needed. The chair option is a bit goofy, you will be sitting on the tent section folded up. Not a bad option to have and it really does not take away from the origional use.
1st use was great. I was set up in 5 minutes for 2 nights that dipped to 24* and up to 90% humidity.
I used 2 small blankets as a camp pad with a 0* bag. My body stayed warm all night but I did wake up to a lot of condensation on the inside of the tent and on the surface of my bag.
2 more nights spent in this cot.
The 1st night it was raining and dipped into the low 30's. I used the "rain fly" for the 1st time, it was simple enough to install and gives you only 1 side door access. I awoke in the middle of the night feeling cold, but it was very warm in the tent. I sat up, reached in to my camping personal bag and fished out a small lighter.
The lighter did not light, even after many many attempts.
I unzipped the door flap and rain fly feeling a rush of cold air... At that point the lighter lit.
If the tent was really that air tight, I don't want to find out.
For the 2nd night I put up a tarp for wind/rain protection and left a bit of the outer door unzipped (with the screen door closed)
A tarp is now standard for me and I will never use the rain fly again, the small built in vents obviously could not keep up with my breathing.
*EDIT* On review, I did not unzip the main doors prior to installing the rain fly, I have since and had success keeping fresh air coming in.***
***UPDATE SEPT 2013***
I have spent a few more nights in the Tent-Cot, comfort and seemingly endless set up location choices still keep me choosing this over my tent.
since the addition of a standard no-name self inflating air mat, I feel no heat loss on sub 30* nights.
Keeping the main doors rolled up and using the rain fly has worked for me in rainy weather, condensation continues to be the biggest draw back (in all fairness, I have only used this in weather/temp conditions that are favorable to condensation build up)
***UPDATE OCTOBER 2013***
2 more nights and still no rips tears or product issues.
Overnight temps in the low 30's, waking up to ice on the outside of the tent.
Slept warm and dry.
Condensation improved with max venting but is still present, I keep a small hand towel at the head of the bead to wipe the ceiling in the AM.
I have coated the tent 2x with 3M water seal & touched up seams with seam sealer.
The carry bag is showing signs of wear, small holes forming at the bottom & strap seams starting to stretch.
