The Coleman Ridgeline III is the best camping cot that I have ever tested. I’ve been looking at camping cots and blow up air mattresses for the Adventure Van. I’ve been struggling with which type would be the best for the Adventure Van. I found a winner with this Coleman cot. I liked it enough that I felt it deserves a camping cot review to let others know how good it is.

When Adventure Wifey is with me a queen mattress is awesome but inside the van is so much metal that I’m afraid I might pop a hole in the mattress. I didn’t know if a cot in a van would work well either but it wouldn’t deflate. That would really suck in the middle of the night and the air mattress deflates. The Coleman folding cot is sturdy and I don’t have that worry anymore. While walking the outdoor aisle at Walmart, I saw the Coleman Ridgeline III Camping Cot. I liked the way it looked so I set it up in the aisle and laid on it for a while. Yes, I unfolded the Coleman Cot and laid down on it in the middle of the Walmart aisle as people were walking past me. I got quite a few stares but I don’t care, y’all should know that. I found it to be very comfortable so I bought it for around $50. I had tried the Ozark Trail Cot as well but i didn’t think it was anywhere near as comfortable as the Coleman camping cot. I think it’s going to work out great in the van. It’s large enough for me to sleep and just small enough I can place two of these folding Coleman Cots in the van. The Coleman Ridgeline Cot comes with a very good little mattress that folds up with the cot when you want to store it. The mattress is about 2.5 inches thick and appears to be good quality. The reason I think the cot is so comfortable is because there are small springs around the entire cot that will give and stretch when you lay on it. This makes it a suspension cot. They are easy to transport in the van as well. The size of this cot makes it a perfect cargo van sleeping cot bed and i can put 2 of them inside. I also tested how if it would be a good cot for side sleepers and it was comfy because the side springs give and I didn’t feel any pressure points. Coleman cot assembly and take down is fast and simple as you will see in the video. I installed some hangers on the wall of the cargo van and they are lightweight enough that they hang easily. The fact that it’s a portable camping bed, you can really use it anywhere. In a tent, your home or a van. It is really amazingly comfortable and I think it will be a great cot for camping. Bottom line is that I think this Coleman Cot might just be one of the best cots for camping and it’s an especially good value. I hope this Coleman Cot review has been helpful to you. Is it the best adjustable cot for a van, I don’t know but it’s the best one i have found for my use so far.
