Having done the big tent, cooking area, etc set up before I’m not sure if your set up/ takedown will be any more enjoyable though.
Yep. It sounds real good on paper, though.
That said, second the Roll A Cot. Kind of a gold standard, made in USA, voted best cot by Better Camps and Gardens types, no bars by your head or feet,etc. this is their full line up...
Drill out or knife up some tennis balls to help with the floor issue. You know, just like on granny’s walker.
For tents, heavy as hell, but kind of first class,too for car camping, outfitters stuff. Springbar tents(made in USA) or the Kodiak Canvas’ quality knock off. They’re better/safer if you want to heat them up with a mr. heater buddy on a 20lb propane tank if it’s getting cold at night, also. Thick floors that hold up to cots and that kind of crap. I got one of the smaller Kodiak 8.5x6 for early,early,late late season rafting trips and it’s quality. Easy to heat for a 1 person plus gear deal. Kodiak Canvas maybe the knockoff but they make some excellent tweaks to the design, too with straighter walls,better interior space, which sold me on it.
And for the love of God, don’t forget the Mr. Heater Portable buddy on a 20lb! give it good air flow for o2 and enjoy that damned,blessed warmth.
This all said, don’t forget what G said. Actual car camping these days for me is crashing in the back of a Suburban with my Mr. Heater going in the off season. Heh.
now i gotta get back to counting sheep. Good luck.
