Cot recommendation?

We have a '72 Sovereign International and our two sons have gotten too big to share a bed (my husband and I like the twins!). We are thinking they can take turns using the gaucho bed and a cot. I don't want to skimp on the cot, and I want something that assembles and breaks down as easily as possible -- I don't need a twice-a-day building project!

Can anyone recommend a great cot? Thanks in advance!

Will you set up the cot inside? At first, we put my 15 y/o son on the floor in the hall (on a pad)- but I had to step on him in the middle of the night... he said he never felt it, but- now he's in the back of the truck .

I like an Aero bed for an extra bed. Inflates in seconds, and deflates into a small tote bag.

I'm not ready to have them outside quite yet! I'm sure they will eventually seek tent solitude.

I have heard good things about the Aero bed; I will check out the twin size. Thank you for the suggestion.

Careful or they will fight over the cot if it's too nice. The gaucho needs to remain the supreme sleeping arrangement or you've reversed the need for a comfy Airstream!
