Just to mention the cots, I have used the XL cot with pad for several years. It is very comfortable and well made. My buddy has one also and we put out plastic totes under the cot in the tent. Good way to keep your stuff until you need it. Having said that I have also realized the XL cot is a lot more cot than what I need. It takes up a lot of room in the smaller cabin style tents. I purchased a narrower military sized cot and pad and find it just as comfortable. Solo camping the XL is great but with a couple guys in the tent those big cots can use a lot of space. Try a narrower one and see if it works for you.

Today I was able to do a test run on my new tent set up as well as my cot/pad.

All I can say is this is going to be a very comfortable and cozy set up. 
My daughter definitely approves. :)

You didn't want the challenge of setting it up for the first time at O dark 30 on the mountain?  :haha:

Has anyone tried a CVT or Roof top tent?

I almost wish I did because it was 97 degrees out and humid when I did it!

Looks awesome, how long did it take you?  Also I see on youtube where you can sew in your own tent stove jack.  I might give that a try...

I personally don't like the roof top tents. They're extremely expensive for what they are.

If you have a truck you can likely find a slide in camper for the same price or a similar price and it will do a much better job. If you have an SUV build a platform for the trunk and sleep inside, it'll be warmer and cheaper in the long run.
