9 Double Camping Cots – Great Off-Ground Sleeping Tools

Share

This text is about off-ground sleeping tools and I present 9 double camping cots presently available on the market, all collapsible, with a sturdy construction, and capable of supporting two grown-up people.

What is this about – why this text

There are many single camping cots on the market and some of them are presented in this site. It is hard to follow all new models that appear almost daily.

However, the situation with double wide camping cots is completely different, there are just a few and they all are presented in this text.

Below, I also give examples from yet another category, double tent-cots (or cot-tents), all are described in detail within this site, so here I only give links. This all is just for completeness, to have all of them in one place, and to make an educated choice if you are in search for a tool of this type.


My list of camping cots for two people

Here is my list of double cots given in alphabetical order:

 

All models are collapsible, which means they pack to relatively small package, with only one long dimension. This makes them essentially different from foldable cots where you always have two long dimensions.

Such a collapsible design means that they require minimal storage space at home or in the car. So you will love to have it at home in the case of overnight guests. The Coleman models are clearly bulkier, but this is because they include the air pads, these are complete sleeping systems.


1. Coleman Queen Airbed Cot

The Coleman writes about taking the comfort of an indoor bed with you when you sleep outside, and this is true with this cot which includes a thick air mattress as well, just see the picture.

This is the widest of all models here, you have the bed with 78 x 59 inches (198 x 150 cm). So clearly, this is suitable for tall people and the width is without a match.

KEY BENEFITS & bonuses

  • All in one system, cot, and mattress.
  • Very comfortable.
  • 2 side tables with cup holders.
  • Included pump.
  • Strong construction.
  • Double Lock Valve on the air pad.
  • Pad cover included.

You have a very strong steel structure here, with a huge weight capacity of up to 600 lb (272 kg).

With all another comfort, this system also includes two side tables with cup holders, you can see this in pictures.

But this is not all, there is a sewn-in cover which keeps the airbed in place and adds a lot to the comfort.

The Coleman Airbed Cot system offers a lot of comfort.

The air mattress and Pump

The cot comes with the air mattress, but you can use it as a stand alone cot and, in fact, the same is with the mattress, you can use it separately. So this is a true 3-in-1 tool.

The air pump is included, it works on batteries, so just connect it to the Double Lock valve on the mattress and the job will be done. The same Double Lock valve system deflates the pad very easily.

Carry case

All together folds up into its carry bag for easy transport and storage. The case is with wheels, but do not expect much of it if you are somewhere in the wilderness.

Price

The Amazon price at the moment of writing this text is $140. Note that this includes the air mattress and the pump as well.

This is a smaller brother of the Queen cot presented above. So indeed, you have the bed size here 74 x 40 inches (188 x 102 cm), and the weight capacity is 300 lb (136 kg). Clearly, this is hardly enough for two grown-up people, but it may be good for a mother and a child, or for two children for sure.

So as you realize, this system is far more than just a double camp cot. The two cots can be used side by side and then you indeed have a double cot, but you can use them also separately, and different places.

The picture above shows numerous storage pockets attached to each of the beds separately. So they can be used with beds when they are separated from each other.

This is a rather expensive system but totally worth the money, there is nothing even remotely similar to this. They sell several variants, with various additions for storage of stuff, please see more in the link below.

  • Weight of bunk: 63 lb (29 kg).
  • Capacity: 500 lb (159 kg) per single cot.
  • Dimensions (L x W x H): 81.75 x 32.25 x 36.5 in (208 x 82 x 92.5 cm) – per single cot.

5. Disc-O-Bed Youth Kid-O-Bunk with Organizers

So this is a version for kids, from the same brand as above. All functionality is the same, the system is for two kids and it is suitable for home and outdoor use.

The structure of this type is particularly suitable for larger family camping tents of the cabin type. This is because of their tall and straightened walls. Such bunk double cots fit nicely in such a design.

  • Weight: 34 lb (15.4 kg).
  • Capacity for each cot: 200 lb (91 kg).
  • Dimensions as stacked bunk beds (L x W x H): 65 x 32.5 x 32 in (165 x 83 x 81 cm).
  • Packed size in the carry bag for each bed separately (L x W x H): 32.5 x 14 x 3.5 in (83 x 36 x 9 cm).

6. Ivation EZ Bed

It is difficult to imagine anything more comfortable than this bed. What you have here is a system which deploys automatically, and the air mattress inflates in the process. The same automatic process is when you take the bed down.

So you guess, it works on electricity and therefore it is not just for any camping place. This is also a great extra bed at home for sudden guests.

Note that they build this system in two sizes, Queen and Twin, and both work on the same principle, the size and weight are the only differences. Please follow the link below to see a video, you must see it to believe it.

Here are a few basic data for the Queen size bed, more in the link below:

  • Weight: 48.9 lb (22.2 kg).
  • Dimensions (L x W x H): 79 x 61 x 24 in (201 x 155 x 61 cm).
  • Packed size: 26 x 21 x 16 in (66 x 53 x 41 cm).
  • Capacity: 450 lb (204 kg).

7. Kamp-Rite Double Kwik Cot

This cot packs to a really small tube of the size (L x D) 42 x 11 inches (107 x 28 cm), see it in the picture:

  • Very easy setup.

  • It comes with a carry bag for easy and clean transport and storage.
  • Very reasonable price.

The price

8. KingCamp Double Camping Cot

So you have  84.6 x 55 inches (215 x 140 cm) of the bed size here. You might not believe, but this huge structure needs no assembly. This is a fully collapsible construction which you set up by simply spreading it out like an umbrella.

When not in use, this cot packs to its nicely designed carry bag. Obviously, for an outdoor use, you will need a larger tent, so have a look here, you have plenty of choices.

9. Outsunny 76″ Two Person Double Wide Folding Camping Cot

This is again a portable and collapsible double cot, quite lightweight for its size, 26.4 lb (12 kg). It is smaller than the Kamp-Rite Double Kwik Cot presented above, you have the bed size 76 x 49.2 inches (193 x 125 cm). So bear this in mind if you are a tall person.

Key benefits

  • Very easy setup.
  • Relatively lightweight.
  • It comes with a nice carry bag in the same color, see below.
  • Great price.

The frame is steel, and the bed fabric is a durable 600D PVC oxford fabric, designed to be mildew free, resist fading, and keep heat away. It can hold up to 440 pounds (200 kg).

The whole structure is very similar to the Kamp-Rite Double Kwik Cot, with 9 legs again, and again very packable.

Read my review.

You have a nice carry bag included, in the same color, see below how it looks:

THE PRICE

The current Amazon price for this cot is $73, a true bargain indeed.

Specifications & Summary of features

  • Weight: 26.4 lb (12).
  • Net weight: 24.2 lb (11 kg).
  • Setup size (L x W x H): 76 x 49.2 x 15.7 in (193 x 125 x 40 cm).

  • Weight capacity: 440 lb (200 kg).
  • Carry bag included for easy storage and transport.

Alternatives: double cot-tents or double tent-cots

The double-wide camping cots presented above imply that you use them inside of a tent, unless you sleep under the stars. So obviously, large tents are needed for such a comfort.

Kamp-Rite Double Tent-Cot.
Kamp-Rite Double Tent-Cot.

But this site is also about cot-tents or tent-cots if you prefer such a term, i.e., the structures where you have a cot and tent mounted on it, see one great example above.

So there are several double size tent-cots presented in the site:

All these tools are either foldable or collapsible, all have their own tent attached to the cot, and those are typical camping tools to use at places with a car access.

So clearly these tools have certain advantages with respect to the cots presented above, you might want to consider them as well. To see more just follow the links, all are described in the site. I have summarized their features in my separate text.


Double sleeping bags

For the double-wide camping cots described here, you might want to have the corresponding double sleeping bags. This may be convenient for couples, and also for people who feel claustrophobic in ordinary sleeping bags. I am one of those and trust me, I know what I am talking about. Every single bag is simply small for me, and yes I am a short guy.

The weight and volume of such bags should not be an issue; the camping cots for two people are used in camps with car access, so having a bigger bag is not an issue in any case.

Anyhow, many of such double bags are described in my separate text, so please follow the link to see more.

Note also that some single sleeping bags can be zipped together, and in such a combination they fit nicely with the camping cots for two people. See these pleasant Teton Sports Celsius bags zipped together:

Double sleeping pads

The two Coleman camping cots for two people have their own pads included. But the other two do not have them, so you might need them for comfort and protection.

There are some great models available on the market. They fit perfectly both the double camping cots and the corresponding double bags. But they can be used with two single bags as well. See some here:


Summary

So these are all Double Camping Cots presently available on the market. You have many options to chose, plus several options for the cot-tents.

All cots presented here are with exceptionally great price tags. All of them have positive and negative sides, but the fact is, sleeping on the ground can never match the comfort of off-ground sleeping, even if you have some top-notch pad for the ground sleeping. I have discussed this issue in my separate text.

They all pack to reasonably small size, but there are differences in the bed size and this is important if you are a tall person. In such a case, the Kamp-Rite Double Kwik Cot should definitely be your first choice. As for the width, the Coleman Queen is the king, yeah, literally, but the Kamp-Rite model is also very close.

I would not consider the Coleman Twin for two grown-up people.

If you need a single cot for very heavy people, please have a look at this text with a very long list of cots with the capacity in the range 300 – 600 pounds (136 – 272 kg).
