I just ordered 2 tent cots for hope of doing some motorcycle camping. I got them for a good price, 2 for $134 including shipping (hope there in good shape, open box returns) I have one of their other models, works great, but way to big to haul on a motorcycle, only fold down to 32" x 32" x 6" I will post my thoughts on this Item after I get a chance to look them over, and pictures. see link below.

Bike camping can be great. Works well if you use the backpacker approach, being real conscious of every ounce you carry. When I had my Magna, I did a ton of camping around California. I had a 3 man dome tent (about right for 1 person), a single air mattress, and a nylon duffel for gear. All of that fit behind me, crossways with bungees. Made a nice backrest. The saddlebags were reserved for food and drink mostly, and some small items like a 1 burner backpacking stove. Great times and great rides.

I have my trailer setup almost perfect. My list of crapola in it is as follows

3 -- camping umbrella chairs
2 -- Umbrella tables
1 -- Coleman grill/stove combo with 4 bottles propane and extra griddle
1 -- Twin size air mattress
1 -- Eureka Timberline 4 tent (this thing is amazing in weather)
1 -- Cheap Coleman sleeping bag from Walmart
1 -- Large tub full of utensils, plates food and misc. crap
1 -- Large cooler
1 -- Air pump for mattress

probably some other things I forgot about as well. Pretty much all I ever h ave to do is throw in some clothes, food, beer and ice and roll.

I know pulling a trailer isn't really all that purist but it makes it so much more enjoyable. I prefer to camp off the bike then out of my pickup as well. My right hand gal is always with me that way.

I do want to add a roof rack so I can take my road trip grill for longer camp outs or when camping with a larger group. And a way to throw on a full size propane bottle as well. One step at a time. Over the next few years I want to buy some more compact things as well like smaller sleeping bag, camp towels etc.
