    That's good to know. I wonder why it only happens when it's closee. Thank you for letting ne know. I find it easier to make a decision when you get to hear someone that actually uses the product..
    I was thinking of getting one for my niece's when I go out camping.

    Yeah, there's 0 airflow from inside to out when the thing is all closed up. The rainfly has little vents on the head/foot ends of the cot but they don't help much.

    I have slept in it in a howling wind/rain storm in Moab and on that Alaska trip it rained pretty heavily a few nights and I stayed mostly dry on the inside aside from the breath moisture. Overall I've still been happy with it.

    Would it be safe to say, leaving it a lil open gets airflow and would prevent that from happening..
    I learned learned something new. Thanks

    Well if I put the rain fly on I leave all the windows and the door on the first layer open to the screens. There's other reasons I'll put the rain fly on other than rain, like if it's windy to prevent a ton of dust from blowing into it. In that case I'll leave the rain fly door open and hold it up with some binder clips. If it's a little breezy and the door is open I haven't had the condensation issue. It's only really bad if you have it closed up. Regular tents do the same thing if you have a couple of people in them, condensation will collect on the underside of the rain fly.

    Turns out I have 0 pictures of the thing with the rain fly on. I'll have to remember to take one next time I use it.

    Edit: here's a pic of it with the rain fly on that shows the little vents on the ends.

    It's also stupid roomy inside for a cot. I'm 6'1" and I can fully stretch out without my head and feet touching the ends. enough room for my pillow on one end and to put my shoes on the other. I can also sit up inside it in the center. The Kamp-Rite cot has those poles that hold up the middle, one reason I got it over the Cabela's version my brother has.

    We sleep inside the rig on a platform with a full size bed minus the fridge cutout so our feet have to touch, 3" memory foam mattress, drawer system/camp kitchen setup, tilting fridge slide. You can also see our blackoutt curtains, black on the outside, white on the inside. Buddy's GX is a Roost hardshell and he's working on a drawer system now too.

    I’ve had condesnsation issues with all tents I’ve owned. Just a side effect of them. Even with vents. To avoid it you really need a nice clear and steady flow of air to keep the temperature the same inside the tent as outside.

    Think of it like a cold beer or soda on a warm day.
