Coleman Queen Airbed Cot

As much as we love our Exped Synmat sleeping pads, we don't love sharing the floor with two perpetually shedding Golden Retrievers, so we've opted for something to get us up and out of the hair haze. We've used a double cot before, but were uncomfortable with the bar the protruded down the middle.
This was our set-up when we had our first spring bar tent.

All this previous kit was sold with the sale of our Montero, and we're re-gearing with lessons learned, the most important of which is the quality of camping is directly related to the quality of sleep.

To this end we picked up a Coleman Queen Airbed Cot. Its stout construction gets us up off the floor with a very stable footprint eliminating any wee-hour-of-the-morning struggle to get one's feet. It comes with an air pump that quickly inflates and deflates the air mattress. The mattress slips into an integrated cover and stays put. It maintains its pressure, though a little bump is needed when air temps change.

So far, this has provided the most comfort and best sleep we've had camping.
