    Looking 4 Wall Mounted Cots

    Getting ready to do a trade for an enclosed trailer that a neighbor used for transporting his snow machines. I plan on storing/hauling my 2 quads in it and setting it up for hunting/camping. Years ago my Dad found some surplus navy cots that were wall mounted, made out of steel pipe and had spring mounted canvas stretched on them. If I can't find any, guess I'll make some.

    I looked at his and there are some things I really like, especially the wall mounted bed frames. Probably will put storage up front. I plan on putting an RV awning on the outside. Doing all the cooking and anything else outside with folding tables and propane stove. This trailer has a door in front too, so they could pull snow machines thru to exit. I am pretty sure I'll seal it up as there is a side door too, in addition to ramp rear door.

    With your background CC, after elk season you could use it for a trip to the moon or Mars.

    CC, before I ended up building my cot frames from scratch I tried to find a couple of the old roll-away singles and just modify them to my needs. Had no luck finding them at a reasonable price so i fabed out my own. If you don't have any luck finding something that soot's your needs i'll be more than happy to send you detailed picks of the frames I put together.
