In this text, I present extra wide camping cots available on the market. These are the largest camping cots, suitable for use at places with a car and motorbike access.
Why extra large camping cots
If you are a tall person the answer is obvious. But even if you are not, you have probably noticed that the majority of camping cots are rather narrow; I am short myself but having more space is always welcome.
Yet another important reason is: such wide and long cots can be used as platforms for tents, so you have the tent-cot structure like many of those described within this site.
In such a use, these are 3-in-1 type item where you have tents and cots that can be used both separately and together. See for example my text about the Teton Sports Outfitter, and the Kodiak Canvas Swag 1 Person Tent shown also in the picture below.

All these cots are camping tools, and by this, I mean the tools to be used at places with the car or motorbike access. Although they are collapsible and so nicely packable, with the weight typically around 10 kg, they are not designed to be carried in backpacks.
The list includes the following types:
- Military-style cots with X-shape legs.
- Military-style cots with S-shape legs.
- Cots with H-shape legs.
- Instant setup cots without end bars.
- The lower width limit for all cots in the list is 33 inches (84 cm).
Note, this list includes only single cots. If you need a double-wide camping cot for 2 people, please check my separate text.
1. Ozark Trail XXL Weather-Resistant Deluxe Cot
To realize why this Ozark Trail Cot is on such a position here in the list, it is enough to see its bed’s dimensions. This is an impressive cot with the bed size 85 x 42.1 inches (216 x 107 cm).
The cot is also with a huge capacity of up to 500 lb (227 kg). So I have included it in my other list if cots for heavy people.
The structure is typical for a military-style cot, and this means that you have two sidebars and two end-bars. The cot comes preassembled and you only have to unfold it and then to add two end-bars.
There is a nice detail here, a pivoting arm which makes adding the end-bars easy and without force. The cot is also with a locking mechanism for extra stability, and it comes with a carry bag and a huge organizer with many pockets of different sizes.
2. Stansport Heavy-Duty G.I. Cot
This cot is here because it is extremely wide, but it is also extremely long, the dimensions are (L x W x H) 84 x 42 x 19 inches (218 x 107 x 48 cm). So if you need something for a very tall person, this is it.
Note that it is quite heavy, it weighs 34.9 lb (15.8 kg). The cot is a very typical folding and collapsible military type outdoor bed. It is incredibly affordable, and it has been on the market for over a decade already.
3. EVER ADVANCED Oversized XXL Folding Camping Cot
This EVER ADVANCED Oversized XXL Folding Camping Cot is what its name says, one of the largest on the market. It is 41.9 inches (106 cm) wide so you realize why it is here and at such a position in the list.
But you also have an incredible weight capacity of 550 lb (250 kg), so I have added it also in the list of cots for heavy people. The cot is incredibly long, you have 84.3 inches (214 cm). It is military-style and its weight is 26.67 lb (12.1 kg). A carry bag is included.
4. Alps Mountaineering Camp Cot XL
This is a very typical military-style cot with a simple and sturdy design. In spite of its huge size, its weight is quite reasonable and you will realize this when you compare it with its competitors below.
All Alps Mountaineering Cots are presented in detail in my separate text, so please follow this link to see more.
- Weight: 19 lb (8.6 kg).
- Dimensions (L x W x H): 86 x 40 x 22 in (216 x 102 x 56 cm).

5.Cabela’s Big Outdoorsman Cot with Lever Arm
The Cabela’s Big Outdoorsman Cot with Lever Arm is with the dimensions 85 x 40 inches (216 x 102 cm). So it is very long and this is why it is in my list of extra long camping cots.
This is also a cot with an impressive 600 lb (272 kg) capacity. This makes it very suitable for tall and heavy people.
It is built as a military type cot so it needs a simple assembly, but it comes with a lever arm that makes assembly very easy. The weight is 31.3 lb (14.2 kg).
6. Browning Camping Titan Cot XP
This is a particularly sturdy construction, due to strong materials and the style of its structure. The legs are angled and this prevents the cot from “rocking”, while its telescoping support in the center makes the cot even more strong than the traditional x-leg cots. The fabric is 600D polyester, and the frame is aluminum with sturdy steel connectors.
It folds up easily and fits into a carry bag so it transports and stores easily when not in use.
Stand out features
- Two side pockets and one of them is detachable, to use as a toiletry bag in the camp.
- A large Velcro pillow pocket section where you can put clothes to create a pillow or a headrest at the height you prefer if you do not carry a pillow. Really cool.
All these features you can see in this video, please have a look:

7. Cabela’s 2XL Outfitter Bunk Bed by Disc-O-Bed
Here you have a stackable and incredibly functional modular set with 2 separate large cots. You can use them as in the picture, or separately as two single cots, or you can create a bench with a backrest.
The weight of both is 94 lb (42.6 kg) and the dimensions when used as in the picture are (L x W x H) 85 x 40 x 46.5 inches (216 x 102 x 118 cm). So you see it is very wide, but it is also very long, so it is in also in my list of extra long camping cots.
8. Coleman Airbed Cot Twin
This Coleman Cot is a unique here in the group for several reasons. As you realize from the picture, it includes an air mattress, a cover, and a pump. Apart from this, you also have a side table with a cup holder. So this is a complete sleeping system.
This cot is considerably shorter than the majority of the cots here in the list. This is good to know if you are not a tall person but want to have a wide bed. Here you have a 102 cm wide comfortable structure with a very soft air mattress.
- Weight: 30.8 in (14 kg).
- Dimensions: 74 x 40 x 23.5 in (188 x 102 x 60 cm).
- Packed size: 38 x 11 x 9 in (97 x 28 x 23 cm).
- Weight capacity: 300 lb (136 kg).
9. Slumberjack Big Cot
As you realize, this cot has almost the same name as its cousin above, but this is a quite different cot. The bed size is indeed the same, and the assembly is similar, you just have to add the end bars.
But the legs are very different, the structure you have here is far more complex and you also have a locking mechanism in place. There is also a significant difference in the capacity; this cot can support 500 lb (227 kg) of weight.
10. Teton Sports Outfitter XXL Cot
This cot is presented in detail in my separate text together with the Teton Sports Outfitter Tent, so please follow the link to see more. Here, I would like to stress that this is probably the most popular cot on the market, an iconic design, and a great combination of the size, capacity, and price.
This cot serves as the platform for the Teton Sports Outfitter tent. The most important parameters are as follows:
- Weight: 26 lb (11.8 kg).
- Size (L x W x H): 85 x 40 x 19 in (216 x 102 x 48 cm).
- Packed size: 42 x 12 x 7 in (107 x 31 x 18 cm).
11. Texsport Black Bear Colossal Folding Camp Cot
This Black Bear cot is one of the longest cots on the market and I have added it in my list of extra long cots. So this is a huge off-the-ground sleeping platform with a size of 85 x 40 inches (216 x 101.6 cm). Its capacity is also impressive, it can support people of up to 400 lb (181 kg).
The legs system is similar to the Teton Sports Outfitter above, with the S-shaped legs, but here you have aluminum. Please see more in my review.
12. Ferrino Steel-Alu Heavy Duty Folding Camp Bed
This Ferrino Steel-Alu Heavy Duty Folding Camp Bed is here because of its impressive width which is 39.37 inches (100 cm). But this cot is also exceptionally long, the length is 85.4 inches (217 cm) and I have included it in my separate list of extra-long cots for tall people.
This is a military-style structure with a great price tag. The weight is 22.9 lb (10.4 kg), and it is also very high, you have 23.62 inches (60 cm) clearance underneath it. This is great to store your camping gear. Note that a carry bag is included.
13. Timber Ridge TR Fir Magnum XL Oversized Heavy Duty Cot
This cot measures 85 x 39.5 inches (216 x 100 cm), so now you realize why it is here. I have included it also in my list of extra long camping cots.
You have a military-style construction with a steel frame and an incredible capacity of 600 lb (272 kg). This is why it is in my list of cots for heavy people.
The cot is equipped with locks on the legs, and you also have a carry bag. The weight is 33.6 lb (15.2 kg), and the cot is 20 inches (51 cm) high.
14. AMENITIES DEPOT Memory Foam 6-Leg Foldable Camping Cot
This Amenities Depot cot is here because of its width but this is also one of the longest cots on the market. The bed size is 85.6 x 39 inches (217 x 99 cm). This is why I have added it to my list of extra long cots.
This is also a padded cot, one of several cots of this type here in the list. But what makes this cot different is the foam, it is a high-quality memory foam that they use here. So with such a padding you will never need a mattress.
Note also that the legs are extendable so you can make the bed perfectly leveled even if you use the cot on a terrain that is not flat. You might need this in a camp.
The cot is a folding type and this means very easy to use and to take away. It is a bit heavy, it weighs 22.7 lb (10.3 kg), though this is normal for such a size and type.
15. Guide Gear XL Magnum Cot
This is one of the largest cots on the market, with a great capacity, a very reliable top-notch tool with a very reasonable price tag.
This great cot is only 3 cm narrower than the other cots shown above. However, its dimensions are really impressive as well as its capacity which is among the highest of all cots on the market. It is incredible that its price is only around $90.
- Weight: 31.3 lb (14.2 kg).
- Capacity: 600 lb (272 kg).
- Dimensions (L x W x H): 84 x 39 x 20 in (213 x 99 x 51 cm).

16. KAMPKEEPER Twin Camping Cot
In this case you have a cot with a bed that measures 74 x 39 inches (188 x 99 cm). So it is indeed very wide but the length is quite moderate.
The cot comes with a pre-attached and fixed mattress sleeve, plus an air mattress included. The mattress can be used on its own of course. This is why it is included also in my list of camping cots with air mattress.
The whole set weighs 18.26 lb (8.3 kg), and the capacity is 250 lb (113 kg).
17. Rio Gear Smart Cot XXL
This Rio Gear Smart Cot XXL is with a bed that measures 85 x 39 inches (216 x 99 cm). This is why it is here in the list, and I have also included it in my list of extra-long camping cots.
Note that its weight capacity is huge, 600 lb (272 kg) and it is suitable even for the heaviest users. It is added to my list of cots for heavy people.
This is an easy to use folding design with multiple storage elements and a side table. You have a steel frame, and a carry bag is included.
18. Klymit Cedar Mesa Cot XL
This cot is built in two sizes, and the version included here in the list is the XL. So the cot is both wide and long, you have 85.5 x 37 inches (217 x 94 cm). I have included it also in my list of extra long cots.
You might want to know that this is also the first cot ever from this brand. It is a collapsible and high quality, and its capacity is 400 pounds (181 kg). So it is also in my list of cots for heavy people.
As you realize from the picture, the cot is high as well. It comes with a nicely designed carry bag. Note that it is quite heavy, it weighs 19 lb (8.6 kg).
19. VINGLI Camp Folding XXL Cot
This cot is both extra-wide and also with a great capacity, so it is included in my list of cots for heavy people.
The bed size is 78.7 x 35.5 inches (200 x 90 cm), so you realize that it is also very long. This is a collapsible construction built in the military-style. Note that it comes with a carry bag and with a system of storage elements on the side.
It weighs 20 lb (9.1 kg), so it is heavy but this is a strong steel frame. You might want to know also that this cot is exceptionally affordable.
20. ALPS Mountaineering Escalade Cot
With its 35 inches (89 cm) of the width, this cot deserves to be here in the list. They build it in two sizes, and as of the moment of writing this text, its XL version is the longest on the market with 229 cm of length. So it is also in my list of extra-long camping cots.
This is a folding construction so all the elements are permanently attached to each other. It comes with a carry bag. You might want to know also that it is very affordable.
21. Coleman Big-N-Tall Cot
This is a very typical military-style cot with a simple assembly which only implies unfolding it and adding the two end bars. The width is 89 cm, still very impressive, and the capacity is among the highest of all cots on the market. See also its incredible length.
This Coleman cot comes with a particularly nicely designed carry bag. Please see more in my detailed review.

- Dimensions (L x W x H): 84 x 35 x 16.5 in (213 x 89 x 42 cm).

22. Texsport King Kot Giant Easy Set-Up
With its 83 x 35 inches (216 x 89 cm) bed size, this is one of the largest cots on the market. So this is not only about the width. This cot is the same width as the Coleman Cot above, but it is 3 cm longer.
As you realize from the picture, this is a very typical military-style X-frame with a simple set up. The price is very reasonable, only $95.
- Weight: 20 lb (9.07 kg).
- Capacity: 350 lb (159 kg).
- Size (L x W x H): 83 x 35 x 20 in (211 x 89 x 51 cm).
- Packed size: 36 x 10 in (91 x 25 cm).
23. Bushtec Adventure Camping Cot Sierra 440
This Sierra Cot 440 is here because of its width which is 34 inches (86 cm). But this is an exceptional design with many great features. So the cot is folding type and it is padded as you realize from the picture.
The legs are extendable and you can transform it into a lounger, you can recline it to several different positions. You can make it horizontal on uneven ground.
The number 440 in the name indicates its huge capacity, so I have included it in my list of cots for heavy people. Please follow the link to my full review.
24. Chinook Heavy Duty Padded Cot
This Chinook cot is from the group of padded cots, so you have the bed deck fully covered and there is no metal anywhere to touch. This is a large and wide cot and this is why I have included it in the list, the dimensions are 80 x 33 inches (203 x 84 cm).
The cot is folding type so it remains relatively large in two dimensions when packed, the folded size is 34 x 30.5 x 10 inches (86 x 77 x 25 cm).
This is a reclining design, one possible configuration as a lounger is shown in the picture. The cot is with adjustable legs so you can make the bed deck fully horizontal on any terrain.
25. Kamp Rite Oversize Kwik Cot
Here you have a rather specific design, an instant setup cot without end bars. So its length is a fully useful length and this is what makes it very different from any military-style cot.
The width here is “only” 84 cm, so this is a size of a standard bed at home, and this will be my lower limit for extra wide cots included here in the list.
The Kamp Rite cot comes with side storage pouches on both sides. Please check the link below for price updates.
- Weight: 23 lbs (10.4 kg).
- Capacity: 350 lbs (159 kg).
- Setup size (L x W x H): 84 x 33 x 22 in (213 x 84 x 56 cm).
- Folded size (L x W x H): 41 x 7 x 8 in (104 x 18 x 20 cm).
To conclude this review with extra-wide camping cots, as you realize, all models presented here truly belong to the group of extra-wide cots, all are above 33 inches (84 cm) wide. They all are also extra-large cots in general in view of their length.
So these are great tools also for tall people and to be used as platforms for tents in cot-tent structures. This site is all about such tools, so just check here to see all tools of this type for one person.
The cots presented in the text are relatively heavy but collapsible, suitable for use at places with car access. But if you need something of this sort for backpacking, please follow this link with many truly great models that you can carry attached to your backpack.
If you need larger cots, for two people, please check my another text with several great models. Cots for very heavy people are presented in my other text, please have a look.

13 thoughts on “Extra Wide Camping Cots”
I saw on Amazon extra wide cots but many had more than 6 legs.
Looked like an accordion. None of the cots in your list were like that.
Please let me know pros and cons. Thank you.
Hi Andrea, if you tell me one example then I shall know what you mean. I assure you these cots here are the widest that are on the market, and they are all on Amazon. Many of them are with 6 legs, I suggest that you check the list again. But let me know more in any case.
Hello, I very much appreciate your cot reviews. Would you know of any cots that are wider than standard but not very long. It would certainly be possible to sleep on a long cot, but it would be harder for a person who’s 5’1″ to carry than a shorter one. Thank you for any suggestions.
Hi Jill, I have a separate list with extra wide cots so please follow the link and check which of them would suit you best.
Thank you, Jovo, for the site and the kind reply. Of the extra-wide list, several look quite good, but the shortest one is 83 inches, or 22 inches longer than I am. (Vingli is an exception, but would be difficult for me to use.) I think there would be a good market for such a cot, maybe 72 inches long and 28-30 inches wide . . . would any manufacturer be willing to offer such a cot? I have found only the Coleman ComfortSmart (for short people…they say 5’7″ or under), but it is quite narrow. Thanks again. How about a “cots for short people” feature? Best regards.
Actually this is a very interesting question, I myself am quite short but need a wider space. Have you considered this Coleman Airbed Cot Twin? It is quite short and very wide.
I am 5’0 feet. and wide. For a few years now, we purchased a Coleman Comfort Smart Deluxe Camping Cot and SUFUEE Mattress Topper Twin Down Alternative Mattress Pad 2″ Extra Thick Mattress Cover Overfilled Fluffy and Firm Pillow Top. It seems to work for me but husband no. He needs a thicker mattress because of his back. This was easier for me to get in and out of as well. It is hard to find a nice mattress without buying a whole bed!! Camping has been a challenge the last few years maybe we are now getting older. LOL. (late 50’s) I think next option might be hotel. lol Best of Luck.
Do you know of any cots that are 50 inches wide.? Have air matress this size for wife and I together.
Hi Alan, yes there are so just look in the group of double camping cots. You will see some with and some without a mattress. There are also double-wide tent-cots, just follow the link.
Thank you, Jovo!
I have look at all of the cots now.
All of them.
I really appreciate you compiling this list. I’ve been looking at most of these independently on Amazon, on all of the sites for all of the outdoors stores, and their individual parent sites too. I just get so overwhelmed with all of the information. You’ve got it all here, very well organized and very inclusive.
I appreciate you sharing this information, but more so the time and mental energy it takes to be concise and still thorough. I will be referring to this again.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Hi Coco, this is really great to hear, I must thank you for such kind words. I am happy to hear that you find the text useful, this was the reason for writing the text, to have them all at one place. Most appreciated and thank you again.
You’ve done a fantastic job brother. Ty.
Many thanks Jodie, having such a comment is a great way to start the day. Appreciated.
