The Kamp-Rite Oversize Tent Cot certainly lives up to its name. It's an extra-long cot that includes a custom-fitted tent to keep you warm, dry, and off the ground when camping, while taking up a minimum amount of room when packed.
This product might seem small when compared to a full-sized tent, but in the tent cot arena, it's the king of single-person cots in terms size. It's not just the fact that it's 7 ½ feet long; it's also capable of holding up to 350 pounds. Also, tall campers will find that the domed top provides ample room for sitting upright.
It’s easy to change your clothes with complete privacy and without feeling cramped, and also provides a comfortable space for evening reading or reviewing your trail maps.
However, that's only one of the Kamp-Rite Oversize Tent Cot's forms. You can also use it as a standard cot (i.e., minus the tent) if you're headed out to your hunting cabin or plan to camp with others in a larger tent. It also converts into a spacious, comfortable lounge chair for you to relax in as you gather around the campfire with your friends.
This all-in-one cot, tent, and camp chair is an excellent solution for a solo adventure or extra privacy when camping with friends. At 90" long by 32" wide, even tall people will enjoy having some room at their feet for gear.

Kamp-Rite Oversize Tent Cot - Buyers Guide
Who is This Product for?
The Kamp-Rite Oversize Tent Cot is designed for taller campers who want their privacy and don’t want to sleep in contact with the ground. It's also exceptional for shorter campers who seek extra room for gear, or maybe even their canine camping companion.
You'll receive a sturdy, well-designed sleeping surface which can be used as a traditional cot, a tent cot, or a lounge chair. In addition to the tent cot itself, you'll also receive a custom-fitted rainfly, and a carrying case designed specifically for the Kamp-Rite Oversize Tent Cot for ultimate convenience.
Overview of Features
Extra Roomy 90" L x 32" W x 47” H Size
Plenty of room for extra gear, a pet, or to stretch! The interior of the tent is 36" at the center.
Convertible for Versatility
Relax by the fire in a lounge chair, stay out of the elements in a tent cot, or use it as a traditional cot.
Stay off the ground with the cot’s sturdy 11” legs. No more having to clear your campsite of rocks or sticks, or risk being flooded out by a rain shower. You’ll also be safer from ground critters!
Heavy Duty Nylon
This quality material is designed to take a beating from the elements, so you don’t have to.
Simple Set Up
If you like to set up camp as fast as possible so that you can start your hike or other outdoor activities, this is perfect! Unfold, buckle, and slide in the spine for the dome. Easily accomplished in under five minutes.
Gnats, no-see-ums, and mosquitoes can ruin even the most exciting camping experience. You won’t have to worry about them in your tent since it has very fine, breathable mesh.
Rain Flap and Carrying Case Included
No need to break your budget with add-ons; you get everything you need with this tent cot.
How to Use
It only takes a few minutes to set up your new tent cot. First, you unfold the cot frame—starting with the middle hinge, and then unfolding the legs and securing them. Then, using the straps and buckles attached, raise the tent portion. Finally, you slide the flexible spine for the dome through the open seam on top and secure it at each side. That’s all there is to it!
If you'd prefer a camping bed and tent combination that's a little bit smaller (or if you require something more inexpensive), the Kamp-Rite Original Tent Cot is a great choice. It measures 84” x 28”. You'll be sacrificing a few inches in either direction—mostly when it comes to headspace—but you'll still be high and dry at 11” off the ground.
On the other hand, if the Kamp-Rite Oversize Tent Cot is too narrow (or you want to snuggle up with your favorite camping buddy), check out the Kamp-Rite Double Tent Cot. It's not as long as the Oversize model, at 84” long, but it offers a roomy 53" width. Like the Oversize model, it also has a domed roof that provides a bit more space to maneuver.
For those of you who are looking for a tent that’s a bit more versatile when it comes to cold weather camping, the Geertop 2-Person 4-Season Backpacking Tent is one more option to explore. It's not a tent cot—you'll be setting up right on the ground—but it's "tent within a tent," offering extra insulation. With the right cold weather camping gear, you'll be all set for winter adventures!
Tent cots aren’t perfect for all camping situations, but when they are, they're one of the most convenient ways to camp. The Kamp-Rite Oversize Tent Cot certainly stands out from the crowd as one of the best on the market!
