The new Double Tent Cot with Rain Fly from Kamp-Rite® is a double size version of the Compact Tent Cot that folds down to an easy-to-handle 45" x 12" x 12" package that weighs 44 lbs. The CTC Double sets up in seconds and provides a comfortable ambient sleep. Two zippered polyester and mesh entries offer easy access to either side of the fully enclosed 85" x 55" sleeping area. Two overhead zippered windows provide air flow on warm nights. The tent top portion of the CTC Double zips on and off of the base and can be used separately on the ground as a standard tent. The bottom base cot can then be used independently as a one or two person sleeping cot. The CTC Double is a truly innovative, unique 3 in 1 product. Weight capacity: 550 lb.

I enjoy this product but I was aware of the constraints before I purchased it. The constraints are its size in regards to fitting in your vehicle and it is just for sleeping in. It was never designed to go packing with by horse or carrying it yourself. Unlike a tent, it is not for sitting or standing upright in either, but it is easier to set up and take down than a tent. The only thing I do not like and this only applies to the double tent cot is the support bar that runs the length of the cot. The only reason for this that I can think of is due to its extra width it still has to support the additional weight of two people. If it wasn’t there I feel as with any double cot that the material would sag like a hammock and the two people would be unable to get comfortable much less get out easily.

I was very excited to get the double tent cot and was looking forward to using it. After using it a couple times I am sadly very disapointed.
My main 3 complaints:
It's very bulky. This wasn't necessarily a surprise - it is a double cot afterall. But, it does take a lot of space to haul. I could live with bulky were it not for the other two complaints.
It does not have good air circulation - especially with the rain fly on. You have to choose between air circulation and waterproofing - it gets very stuffy in there. The fly has a couple of window-type folds on either side, but it just isn't enough. There needs to be some space between the fly and the tent to let some air through (like a good tent), and there just isn't.
It's not comfotable - there are a couple of pressure points on either end - and they get worse if one person in the cot is heavier than the other. Strictly as a cot, it is the least comfortable cot I've slept on.
The only positive is that it is fairly easy to set up and take down.
It's a really cool idea and concept, but the end result just isn't as great as the idea and I found it to be a poorly ventilated tent with an uncomfortable cot. I regret the purchase.

I have not used the product yet, but I have set it up in my backyard. I find it very easy to set up and put down which I really like. I find it to be bigger for transporting places then I thought. I like the idea of the cot and sleeping above the ground.

Fastest Tent ever!
I have owned this for just about a year now, I have used it and had time to seriously determine its features and quality. I used to setup a full size tent usually in the dark and hated doing it. I can set this up and be inside ready to relax in about 5 minutes, by myself even! I love my tent cot, I am 6'4" and 230 pounds and I could fit with my wife comfortably inside for a peaceful nights rest.

Not sure what you mean by "bottom of the floor to the ground", but from the bottom of the cot to the ground is appoximately 21". Plenty of room for bags. I am tall and in a sitting position my feet just touch the ground.
