    Cot for a large man.

    Anyone have suggestions for a camp cot for a 300+ pound individual? 6 feet tall.

    I have the "Woods™ Real Tree™ Camouflage Camp Cot" from Canadian Tire. It's heavy steel and extra wide. It's rated for 300 lbs. PM me if you want to buy it, I don't use it and it's collecting dust.

    I have the big cabelas one. I find it's so wide the middle stretches and it's more like a hammock after a few days.

    I switched to a hotel cot with a real mattress.

    I bought the Outfitter XL, then traded it for a regular Outfitter as it was too big for me. I add a memory foam topper on top of the cot to make the cot more comfortable and decrease the hammock effect. I had issues with it being uncomfortably hard on my shoulders it was so tight, but I'm only 215-225lbs depending on the month.

    I don't actually know my buddies weight. I'm 6'2" 200lbs and he's considerably bigger than me. I'm guessing setting him up with an at capacity bed could spell disaster. Thanks though.

    The outfitters series from Cabelas sounds like the ticket. Hopefully he can budget it.

    I've had the outfitter XL for a few years now - used for fishing and hunting outing in my contractor trailer. Damn fine little cot that doesn't leave me sore. I'm quite happy with it.
