These are all Coleman camping beds available on the market in 2017, all are relatively heavy. This means you will use them at camping places with a car access. Those with links are described in detail in my separate reviews, so please follow the links to see more.

Cots with mattresses

So you have 12 cots here, all very different. In total 6 of them come with the mattress, and these are the models 1, 2, 5, 6, 10, 11, 12. But here too you have big differences; the models 5, 6 and 11 are with really thick air mattresses. The indicated weights in the table are for the complete set.

Collapsible vs foldable

When packed, foldable beds remain relatively large in two dimensions, and this makes them less suitable for transport and storage. The models from this group are 1, 2, 7, 8, 10, and 12.

The collapsible cots are far more convenient for transport and storage. The models in this group are 3, 4, 5, 6, 9, and 11.

Double wide camping cots

Formally, three of the cots in the table are from the group of cots for two people, the models 5, 6, and 11. But note that the Twin Cot is quite narrow for two people, so it can be useful for a mother and a child, or for two small children.

Reclining design

In this group, you have the cots 7 and 8. They offer several different positions for back and feet, so you can use them to lounge during the day and as camping bed during the night.


Below I give a few data for some of them. Note that some of the cots are presented in more details in my separate texts, so you can follow the links to read more.

Summary

So this was my overview of 12 Coleman Camp Cots. As you realize, they offer tools for various situations, collapsible & foldable, single & double, with mattresses & without mattresses. The common feature for all of them is the really great price, some are simply incredibly affordable.

Note, this is about camping cots, but all these tools are really versatile. They can be used at home for sudden overnight guests, many of them can be used in summer camps, on open-air music festivals and gatherings, in any emergency situation in general.
