May be sooner than you think. They're on backorder at Aerostich.

So, apparently, the price increase matches with a move to add two additional support trusses to the original package.

The idea is that since your body isn't uniformly distributed, neither should the cot's support. Where you want/need more support, you add trusses. There're a few combinations that make sense. But typically, this means adding support between your shoulder and butt, or between your lowerback and thigh.

With a air mattrice, you could hardly tell the difference.

Just got my Cot :)

WOW! http://www.luxurylite.com/


Utterly amazing, I ordered it on Saturday afternoon got an e-mail Sunday saying it would be shipped on Wednesday. Saturday night, I was convinced to go on a camping trip next Saturday to plan out a ride with a buddy for our group. After receiving the e-mail saying he would be shipped on Wednesday, I e-mailed them back asking if it would be all possible to receive it before then for I made a last-minute camping trip plan.

I got it today, took it back to the office and my entire working staff watched and help me put it together the first time they were all impressed, and every one of them said it's well worth the 200 plus dollars.

Additionally, I weigh 160 pounds, I do not feel I need the additional 2 crossbars but I do want all 6 main supports put in place for a gives additional support at the head and feet that I prefer. I do not bottom out with only four polls in place just did not care for how the head and foot support performed. I like all six polls in place but again don't need the additional weight support of the 2 additional crossbars.

Thank you Bruce for the amazing turnaround shipping time, you get several thumbs up in my book.

These cots are a must for side sleepers. Well worth the monies. They do need more insulation than when slleping on the ground though.

Getting ready for the summer riding season and looking for something a side sleeping, bad back, 58 year old can sleep comfortably on. Good reviews and recommendations. The Luxury Lite looks like the ticket.

Just make sure you account for some type of insulation if you'll be using the cot in cold climates.

That is true, I have a 20 sleeping bag and it was comfortable sleeping on an insulated map in 30 weather. But now that I am physically off the ground is much colder. I am sleeping on the insulated matt on top of the cot and it seems much colder in the same 30 weather. I am no needing to get a 0 sleeping bag I believe.

I use the Big Agnes system with the sleeve on the bottom of the bag for your air mattress or, perhaps even better with the cot, would be to get the "space foam" pad for the sleeping bag sleeve. That would provide insulation and even more comfort on top of the cot. Whaddya think?

Just bought one !!

Just clicked the "Buy Now" button on the Luxury Lite cot from the LL site, so I could get it in time for the BMW MOA in Gillette, Wyo, July 17-20. Since I will be sleeping in the tent for several nights in a row, I will give the LL cot a decent test. As a side sleepin' ol' fart, I'm hopin' it is all it is cracked up to be.

Cot

I've had one of these cots for a few years now (3 or 4 can't remember that far back). I think mine is second generation, different feet that the current models. I'm a side sleeper, and in my older age (I'm 36) I can't stand to sleep on the ground, it hurts a whole lot more than when I was a young'en. These things work awesome, and Bruce is one of the nicest vendors you'll deal with.
