Upon first receiving the cot I was very impressed with how comfortable it was. It's also relatively easy to assemble. BUT since I've had it over a year now, the mounts that hold the "spring bars" in place have come loose. It's difficult to explain, but basically the product is nearly worn out. I'm not a heavy guy either, I'm very much a lanky string bean and weigh only 140lbs on my heaviest days. Not a long term solution in my opinion, but it was good while it lasted.
For camping on a site that you park at, it doesn��t get better than this. The legs give the cot a springy feel as they flex. I��m 6', 2�� and don��t hang off the end at all. The little head pad is great. I use a sleeping bag that has the hood and pad for your head, I don��t need a pillow at all. The head of the cot also bends slightly upwards to better support your head. All in all I love this, and it makes camping much more enjoyable. My first time out with it, all my friends wanted to get one.
Best Answer:There's instructions with the cot, and it only takes <5 min. to completely assemble. If you aren't mechanically inclined find someone who is. Once you've done it once, you should know what you're doing from there on out. It's not difficult.
