And a follow up on my Tent Cot's.
I realized I've had these over 4 years now. I figured I'd do a follow up.
I've have 2 of these. The original and the newer XL(oversized) size. I normally use the XL for the room. The original has more screen area and packs slightly smaller. So it gets the nod in really hot weather or when space is tight like the solo canoe.
The couple of times I had moisture issues It was related to leaving the thing open when the dew settled. Once I learned how to deal with this it has been a non issue as has any real condensation problems.
I have 3 friends that I camp with who have bought one. All are pleased and like myself it has become their go to when not using a camper.
The only issues I've seen among all of them have been the above mentioned cracked pole and 1 friend has a rivet pull out of one of the plastic leg supports. it was and easy fix with a bolt.
I have now used mine from VT to NC and out in the midwest. I had it in the mountains at freezing temps with strong winds and I've slept through a couple of storms in mine. Same on the other end at near 100* temps. I've used in several times for week long trips in campgrounds surrounded by RV's. It's been to URE twice at least now.
The big tent has only been used once for a family trip since I got this. It is my "go to" and gets used fairly often. If something happened to it at this point I'd buy another tomorrow.
Some pics from recent trip.
The original it was hot.
They've been used in this spot a lot since bought.
