Camping cot

Is anyone interested in a light weight, roll up camping cot? Admittedly these are somewhat pricey units but I've read nothing but good reviews on them. Through my company I can access dealer pricing and if I can get 5 confirmed orders with the money in my hand I can offer them for 180.00 plus GST and shipping. An order of 10 would be 170.00 plus GST and shipping.

I'm not carrying these units and am only offering this to Canadian customers on a one-off basis.

Here's the link.

www.luxurylite.com

PM me if you're interested.

There is another good choice too, for half the price:

They will ship it USPS to Canada for 19.00

I will be trying one of these babys out.

Been there, tried that, the sag killed my back. I'd rather sleep on the ground.

Yeah they seem decent but I'm looking for the smallest possible cot. Luxury Lite's rolls up into a 16X5 inch bag. I can put it into my saddlebags. I guess you pay for the compactness. It's the only one I can find that is that small.

The GoKot is 28"x7"x3", so def not as compact, but still reasonable enough for me as I generally have my tent, air mattress and sleepin bag already rolled and on the back of the seat. Although I wouldnt have to have the air mattress anymore.

6 of one, half a dozen of the other I guess....

I like back country touring on my XR650L so I need something compact and am trying to become a minimalist to the extent possible. Last year a group of us camped and rode in the Cypress Hills in early May and I froze. Smaller usually equals more money....in camping anyways.
