Sturdy aluminum frame keeps you 11" off the ground
There is nothing like sleeping on a cot outdoors. During cold weather, it gets you off the heat-stealing ground, and when the hot weather hits, a cot allows your body to take advantage of breezy nights. The Kamp-Rite Oversized Tent Cot is a versatile piece of outdoor furniture that has a tent built on top of a sturdy aluminum cot frame. Built out of 210D Poly Oxford fabric with a 1500mm PU waterproof coating, no-see-um mesh doors and windows, the rain fly provides plenty of ventilation and protection from the elements when needed. The Oversized version of the Tent Cot is built to accommodate taller campers and to give more "elbow-room" for other campers. The "dome style" design allows for extra headroom. Cot features an an EVA moisture barrier/insulating pad underneath and offers the ability to tilt one end you can enjoy the relaxing comfort of a lounge chair during the day. Weight capacity: 350 lbs. Carry weight: 24 lbs. Imported.

I have been camping for over 40 years and have used a lot of different tents.The cot tent is the best that I have used, sets up in about 5 min. I slept like a baby, I did us a self inflating mattress and I recommend a mattress of your choice.I camp in southern Alabama
and the only problem is condensation in the morning.
This was in spring with high humidity I intend to use this tent in the fall and see if this happens then.

I purchased one of these last summer. I have used it 3 times, twice in the summer and once in late fall. It does tend to get a bit warm with the rain cover on it in the summer but you can just get a tent fan, no big deal. I used it in the fall and it got down to about 29-30 at night and woke up with snow on the it but I remained very warm all night. The only thing I would suggest getting is some form of sleeping pad for it. Other than that it worked GREAT. I might have to go and get the double size one now.

I looked at the original tent cot for almost 2 years, but when they came out with the Oversize I knew this was the one. This is a great sleeping system. The condensation issue mentioned in other reviews can be eliminated by following the directions and using the doors to control ventilation. With the rainfly on where the temps are even in the 30's you will stay dry AND warm with the interior doors completely rolled up. All the moisture will vent to the inside of the rainfly, not the tent area. With a sleeping pad and a good sleeping bag you will not get cold. I took this on a mountain trip with cold weather in April and again in June. My grandaughter (12) commandeered the thing on the June camping trip. She now wants her own for Christmas. You will not regret buying this if you enjoy camping on the fly. At 6'2" and 215 lbs. it has plenty of room and support. Very well made. Not for back country camping unless you can drive to the site.

Well it depends on the size of your bed, there are actually 3 modles, the compact is 84" long 24" wde, the oversized (which is the one I have) 90" long, 32" wide, and I'm not sure if the double is still in production but they do have the CTC-XL which is 84" long, 33" wide.
As for the dog, I woud say there is room for a small to mid-size dog in the oversized not sure about the single.
How long is your truck bed? You will need every bit of the 90" as specified. Those outside legs or end supports need to have support. I would not have them hanging over the end of the tailgate eventhough most of the weight are on the two middle legs. If you sit up in the middle of the night, it will seesaw over the tailgate.
Depending on how big you are and what your definition of medium size dog is, I would say yes. I'm 5'8" 190 and there's plenty of room left. I imagine I can fit a lab in there. Snug, but yes.
You can easily use guy lines on the lower frame, or keep some gear inside while you are not sleeping. If the wind blows you over while you are in it, you should not be camping. Try a cabin in those kinds of conditions. LOL
I just received my tent cot today. I tried to roll up the 2 big windows on each side. I used the loops and T shaped pieces for both ends of the window cover but I could not get the middle portion of the window cover to stay rolled up. What is the trick????
You have to roll it fairly tight. I put double stick velcro in the center so it stays up a lot better than just using the loops & T shaped holders. U have to roll it up real tight then mark where u want the velcro to install it. But once u get it on it works great
You can either roll the window tighter, make a smaller roll as it were, or just use a clothes pin or other similar clamping device. You can even use a cord to go over the top with a clamp on each end, like a tarp clamp.
