What type of cot is this REDCAMP Extra Long Kids Cot
As mentioned above, this is a folding cot that requires no specific assembly, you simply open it up in seconds. The pictures below show how this is done:
So this is all one single piece, there are no parts to be added or to be removed when you want to close the cot. This is why I have included it in my list of best folding cots for camping.
It comes with a bonus carry bag. The frame is built from thick steel tubes with 25 mm diameter and the fabric is a 600D oxford polyester. The cot has 10 feet in total so this is a really sturdy and stable construction. The picture below shows its numerous legs and X-shaped support bars, plus several straps that additionally stabilize the structure.
The feet are anti-slip and large so they will not sink in the ground easily, and this design is also floor-friendly so you can use it in a larger floored family camping tents, see the picture below.
Who is it for
Regarding the dimensions, the bed is 53 x 26 inches (135 x 66 cm) so it is really wide, and the length determines the age of the kid. They write that the cot is suitable for kids up to 135 cm of height. Note that there are no end bars so the whole length is the useful length, there is no pressure spots.
The cot is moderately tall with its 12 inches (30 cm) height. I have included it in my list of best camping cots for kids.
Regarding the cot’s capacity, the official capacity is 220 lb, I am surprised that it is not higher in view of so many lags and bars shown above.
Regarding the weight, the cot may look a bit heavy with its 11.6 lb (5.26 kg), but this is a normal weight and it is not surprising when you see how much metal is used in its frame.
The packed size is 29 x 9 x 7.5 inches (74 x 23 x 19 cm), so the cot is a relatively small tube when packed. But you will need a car for transportation.

My rating, pros & cons
Please see how I rate this cot against my standard set of criteria so you can easily compare it with other cots here in the site. They use the words Extra Long in the name, but they could have made it longer.
