    I'd shy away from from those vertical racks in the bighorn, the walls are not completely vertical and they won't work well. i watched Cabela's and got the Alaskan guide for half price and a nice pad. It's almost as nice as my bed.

    A nice foam mat is awesome on the cots. I found the same foam in those $80 bed rolls at Fred Meyers for $15. I just put a twin fitted sheet over the cot to keep it clean.

    I'm not sure the brand name? They aren't all the same brand either. I know one of them has the Bass Pro Shops brand on it. Since the stove takes up one wall, I line the other 3 walls with cots. They go head to toe and fit pretty tight but it works fine. 2 on the opposite side the stoves on and 1 on the same side as the stove.

    Interesting I can only get two of my Cabela's cots in mine. I can only fit one on the opposite side of the stove, there to long to fit two of them.

    I took my tent on a three day turkey hunt in NW Nebraska a couple weekends ago. I got in LATE on Friday. Had to set up in the dark. To my surprise it only took about 15 minutes, but I was on the hustle. I got hammered with 6 inches of snow and 25 mph winds on Sunday. The tent did great. I had to pound a couple stakes in after a few hours of the storm, but that wasn't the tents fault. The ground got very soggy, any stake with tension will want to move a bit.

    I too see an issue with getting two cots to line up on the left side of the tent. I got the Cabelas Alaskan Guide cot and the eyeball test tells me I'll have to figure something out. I definitely will be purchasing the vestibule when it goes on sale. Thanks for the pics woodtick!
