Disc-O-Bed Cam-O-Bunk XL Cot Review

Sleeping on cots brings back bad memories of sleepless nights for some people. Those sleepless nights and waking up with back pain are over with the Disc-O-Bed Cam-O-Bunk XL cot. Disc-O-Bed has designed a sleek cot system for the outdoor enthusiast.

Appearance: Upon opening the Disc-O-Bed package you can see the quality engineering that went in to this product. It all sits nicely secured in it’s carrying bag, just waiting to be put together. The green canvas and beige steel frame give the cot a work horse look. Laying out the pieces of the cot, you come across 8 discs, these allow for a no tool construction and really give the cot a unique look. With a rounded bottom, the cot does not dig in to the bottom of your tent causing damage and allows for extra storage space underneath the bottom cot. The Cam-O-Bunk XL provides a wider and longer sleeping deck than most cots, coming in at 79″ long and 34.5″ wide. Not only is the Disc-O-Bed a great cot it also converts to a couch, just unhook the front discs from their resting place on the top bunk and rest them between the legs of the lower cot. You can then stuff some sleeping bags in behind the folded portion and you have a nice bench. The design of the Disc-O-Bed is impressive and gives you a very pleasant sleep experience even for multiple nights.

Ease Of Use: Looking at the bag of parts it looks like a daunting task, but the no tool assembly makes these cots so easy to put together. Once you have slipped the canvas sleep area through the two steel bars you are able to attach the revolutionary discs that will attach the cot to bottom and upper braces. With no bars through the middle of the bed, you don’t have to worry about waking up in the middle of the night with a bar shoved awkwardly in your back. Plus that makes this cot, just that much more comfortable. There is really no issues with sleeping on the Disc-O-Bed for multiple nights, it is just that comfortable. The Dis-O-Bed Cam-O-Bunk XL cot can be set up in less than 10 minutes which allows you more time to spend actually camping.

Durability: The ability to choose to bunk or use the cot as two separate beds is a great feature and with a weight capacity of 500 pounds per cot – you know it is rugged. The carrying case that the cots come in is heavy duty with a nice carrying handle for easy hauling. The cots themselves are super solid, made with powder coated, anti rust steel frames there is never the feeling that it may give out while you’re laying on it.

Weight: So for a cot that is made this sturdy, there has to be some weight to it. The Disc-O-Bed Cam-O-Bunk XL weighs 63 pounds which is a little hefty but we’d much rather know our cot is solid than worry about it falling apart as we move around in our sleep.

Value: The Disc-O-Bed Cam-O-Bunk XL cot comes in at $369.99. By first glance that seems a little steep for a cot, but let us re-iterate this is nothing like the cots you have used in the past. The Disc-O-Bed is a solid piece of equipment with the ability to convert in to a couch and attach additional organizers to keep bed time necessities and other accessories. Plus you’re not just getting one cot, you’re getting two functional cots with the ability to bunk them or keep them as two separate pieces.
