I use tennis balls on the feet of my roll-a- cot. It works great to protect the floor of the tent and they stay in place when you fold the cot up to put back in the bag. I have had them on my cot for a few years now.

The aluminum of the Sleeprite cot legs did put holes in the lightweight floor of my Big Agnes tent when I first set it up on the flagstones in my back yard patio. Doh. Tear-Aid to the rescue. The roll a cots have rubber caps on the legs and are better. I've started putting a sand mat under the tent as a cushion. The tennis ball idea is pure genius. I'd also tried the furniture pads but could never keep the cot on them.

Camp Time Roll A Cot

Camp Time Roll A Cot

This is the standard river cot. Not sure why you would consider anything else.
It's bombproof and easy to set up.

Cheers!

It is too narrow for my comfort, hence I bought a 35" wide cot. Cots, boats, oarlocks, drain no drain are all personal preferences. One persons bomber is another's junk To each their own.

I know! I like wider too. I got the roll-a-cot wide but it’s only 32” wide.

I do the tennis balls with a slit too. They look like pac-man trying to gnaw their way up the cot’s legs. I’d like to get fix them so that one of the pair of legs is adjustable in height.

Anyone have the 84" long camptime cot? My son is 6'7 so thinking about getting the longer cot for him for our MF trip. They make both a 2 support (just like regular camptime) and 3 support (one in the middle). Trying to decide which one I want. My son is right near the weight limit of 250 lb for the 2 support version so leaning toward 3 support but its more money and more weight so wanted some opinions.

I have the two leg cot and it works for me

My river bud got the three leg version after I purchased mine. The two leg is a good cot but the three leg is just bomber

Get the three leg version is my advice

Long cot

I've got the long one, with two legs. I'm 6'3" and close to that weight limit too, and the sides definitely bend in noticeably when I'm sitting on it. Less so when I'm laying down on it. I asked the maker about it, and they said it's plenty strong, so I'm just going with it rather than paying to ship it back. If I had it to do over again, I'd probably go with the three leg version.
