    I've always used the self inflating thermarests for backpacking/motocamping. My current one came from campmor as sort of a mil surplus thing. The other one I've heard of is Exped.

    Make sure to get a full length, the 3/4 length ones leave your feet cold.


    thinking about getting a cot though for car camping.

    yes
    cheapest one I can recommend is the REI Co-op AirRail.

    The walmart foam ones never worked for me and had me feeling every pebble anyways but I'm a lot fatter than you.

    i sleep pretty well on basically nothing, so they were great for me. :laughing:

    Sometimes they do spring a leak though, easy enough to repair but worth being careful. They pack down nice and small too.

    If you're sleeping in the bed get a 4x8 sheet of foam insulation board something like this (but I prefer the 2" thick board)

    https://www.homedepot.com/p/R-Tech-...uT03y59X-hHNkSJc3H6EVY-dXBu92-URoCPAcQAvD_BwE

    Youll have to cut it down some to fit in between the wheel wells


    then throw a 4" memory foam topper for a twin bed on top of it

    https://www.walmart.com/ip/Spa-Sens...-Mattress-Topper-With-Theratouch-Twin/4569413


    About 100 bucks for both and I can say from personal experience, it's just as good as sleeping inside lol

    I use one that is basically the same as this with a prototype valve or something. I used to have a rei one that was way more comfortable but one of the internal baffles broke in two of them back to back. The Klymit one has held up a couple of years with no issues. I prefer the ones you blow up over the self-inflating foam ones because I feel like they never really self-inflate. Big Agnes air-core are also more comfortable cheaper options, but this one is stupid cheap imo.

    I had a backpacking cot for a while too and it was a pain in the ass but a full-size cot could be a good option depending on use.
