What is a Tent Cot?
Tent cot is a hybrid between a tent and a cot. This are cots that have coverings to protect campers from elements and insects. And just like other cots, this type of cot is elevated from the ground, making sleep quite comfortable compared to sleeping on the ground. It is especially helpful when you are going camping to rocky terrain and if it is raining.
