I will be rubbertramping it in my old '91 Miata when I hit the road in the spring unless the van gods smile down upon me. I've been looking at one person tents and came across the Kamp-Rite for $99 at the local Bass Pro Shop.

I was wondering if anyone has used one of these. It doesn't collapse small enough for my taste, but it's a tent that's up off the ground. I can't really do the hammock thing because they make my body too stiff and achy just napping in them. I need some elbow room. lol

I'm also open to suggestions of alternative ideas.

I don't have one but would like to have the double for car camping. I think it's a great alternative to regular tents or hammocks. I do like that it seems unitized for quick set up anytime and anywhere. About the only thing I question would be long term durability. It has good reviews on Amazon.

I've been looking at NEMO tents more and more. I know I can get one for less than two bills.

I'm thinking that if my bedroom is going to be a tent, I better have one that lasts.

UPDATE!

So my mom dragged me out to a town garage sale (they set up shop in their elementary school) today and I figured I'd keep my eye open for anything useful for the road. Wouldn't you know the first thing I saw was a nearly new Kamp-Rite tent/cot for $25. I didn't have enough, but my dad tossed me a $20 so I bought it. Once it gets warm enough to camp, I'll test it out a few times and let y'all know how it goes.
