[QUOTE=kazak4x4;220829]okieboater, no clue yet, I just got the roll-a-cot, but when we used our tent I had two large pacos side by side on one side of the tent and still had half a tent free for gear. The paco pad is the exact size of the roll-a-cot, so I assume it will fit perfect in my tent.
I've read a ton of reviews on Springbar and also talked to some of my friends who had it and they all couldn't wait to tell me how much they loved theirs.
The main reason I bought mine was for durability, warmth, ease of putting it up and how strong it stands in bad weather.
On Yampa last year we got into a pretty bad storm with winds up to 50-60mph, a lot of rain and crappy conditions. I lit a couple of candles inside the tent and within 20 minutes it was toasty warm and dry inside. There is plenty of head room to be able to change your clothes standing up. We have a few clothes lines for drying clothes inside as well. It takes me about 8 minutes to put it up by myself, or even less with someone holding the other side. The downside is that you have to have a good ground to drive the stakes in, so no camping on slickrock or granite. Another downside is the size of course and the weight. It's not the smallest tent and by far not the lightest, but it is easy to put away in a duffel bag.
If I had to do it again, I'd still get a tent and have a backup regular tent for smaller trips. If my family comes along on long trips with me, I'd bring my Springbar."
I just read the specs on the tent, very well built with a lifetime warranty--it should hold up very well in just about any bad weather! Holy crap though, 48lbs? I thought my Bibler Pueblo was heavy. Hows your back holding out?
