Especially in such a short period. Perfect example of good folks gone greedy.
Greedy? I don't see it:
the regular cot is currently $128. I am 6' and 200 pounds and regular works great for me. I got mine in the late 1990s I believe in the $70 range. That translates to about an average annual increase in cost of 3%/year. $128 doesn't seam excessive and the rate of change doesn't seem out of line.
If you need a bigger cot then you pay more. If you are way over 6' tall you are just gonna get screwed on all that tall person stuff. If you are a fat bastard, eat less and exercise more.
The roll-a-table has risen in cost in a similar fashion, with the current price equaling a 3% average annual increase per year since I bought mine in the late 1990s, paid around $45 or so back then and its $82 now.
An equivalent average annual increase of 3% is pretty much inline with the economic growth rate of the United States over that time, which I don't think any one would characterize as high.
I can tell you that $70 for a cot in the latter 1990s seamed a lot higher to me then, than $128 does now.
