Default Oztrail easyfold stretcher tent

I can think of a few uses for this, combined with an awning, it can be set up and or packed in minutes.

I have it on advice from a user of one of these that its the best thing hes done for remote camping.

$199



Personally i use one of these EPE speedy tents, very fast, but you need a mattress which i have, they also handle some very extreme weather, i have had this one about 7years

I like this style of stretcher tent.

My personal favourite is the Kamp-Rite tent cot

Keep all your bedding in there, fold it up and chuck it on the roof racks.

Sure do but its been too long since I camped out.

I remember years ago there was a show on the ABC called "young inventors" or something similar. The teenager that originally designed the tent cot was on that show, its good to see an aussie invention in the market place.
