    Best Disc-O-Bed Buyer’s Guide

    Adventurers and military troops in the field need to rest after completing their daytime activities. They also deserve a good night sleep that will leave them feeling refreshed in the morning.

    One of the must-have equipment in the adventure gear pack is the camping bed. A camp bed, popularly called cot, is a compact, lightweight and portable bed that can fit in small spaces of tents or recreational vehicles.

    They are usually designed to be foldable, and their metal frames are specially built to be covered well with canvas, nylon or linen fabric that serves as the sleep area.

    Standard camping beds

    Standard camping beds are designed to fit only a single adult, and this means that in a place where only one bed can fit, only one person can sleep.

    This type of beds are not good at economizing the space inside the tent, and this challenge stirred a family of cot specialists to come up with an innovative camping bed that can economize shelter space without compromising the sleep quality of the campers.

    Introducing the Disk-O-Bed

    The result was a new cot type called Disk-O-Bed, that was designed by the family-owned firm, Disk-O-Bed.com.

    To date, they still design and manufacture a series of Disk-O-Bed models, which are billed as extreme sleep solution products.

    Moreover, the Disk-O-Bed models are versatile sleeping gear that can be used by camping adventurers, emergency response teams, and field troops, as well as at home to provide sleeping space for a large company of guests.

    Innovative design – The bunkable build

    The Disk-O-Bed has an innovative design that supports a bunkable build. By bunkable, it means that two beds can be stacked up together to form a double-decker bed, with the second bed being placed on top of the first bed.

    To achieve this bunkable build, Disk-O-Bed models feature a modular design with the product being shipped in a disassembled state with all its components fitting into one or two carriage cases.

    The most defining feature of these cots that differentiates them from other camping cots is its modular disc(-bed) system.

    The modular disc (bed) system

    For the basic bunk-able model, its parts are shipped in 2 packaging bags, the Straight Disk-O-Bed bag and the Round Disc-O-Bed bag.

    The Straight Disk-O-Bed bag Contains
    • 4 black discs,
    • 4 stabilizer bars,
    • 4 swagged side rails,
    • a stack adapter set,
    • sleeping mat,
    • 2 straight end frames,
    • and a pair of straight rails.
    The Round Disc-O-Bed bag contains:
    • 2 round end frames,
    • 4 black discs,
    • 2 locking straps,
    • 4 foot plugs,
    • 2 straight side rails,
    • a sleeping mat,
    • 4 stabilizer bars
    • and 4 swagged side rails.

    The installation process

    To begin with, a black disc is secured to a swagged side rail using a lock mechanism. This is done for 4 swagged side rails. Next each, swagged side rail is connected to a straight rail.

    Each straight rail takes a pair of swagged side rails, one on either end, and this creates a complete side rail.

    Next, the sleeping mat is attached to the 2 fully assembled side rails. The top of each round end frame is made of 2 bed posts connected by a loop.

    The side rails are placed onto the loop of each round end frame, and then rolled securely into their respective bed posts so as to create a complete round-frame single cot.

    Next, one follows the aforementioned process – this time using the 2 straight end frames instead of the round end frames – to assemble a complete straight-frame single cot.

    Creating a bunk bed

    Now to create a bunk bed, the straight-frame cot needs to be fitted atop the round-frame single cot, and this is done by removing the foot plugs from the posts of the straight frames, and replacing them with a stack adapters.

    Next, the straight-frame is lifted onto the round-frame cot, with its stack adapters rolling securely onto the top part of the discs of the round-frame cot.

    This allows the straight-frame cot to be stacked on top of the round-frame cot, and create a double-decker bed. Next, stabilizer bars are fitted to hold the adapter stacks in place, while locking straps connects the loops bars of the straight frames to those of the round frames. This is a complete fully-assembled bunk bed.

    The bunk configuration only supports a double stack, and it is prohibited for one to triple stack the cot.

    For the military, these modular cots can be rolled into back-supporting seats. Likewise, its durable polyester fabric provide adequate back support for sleeping soldiers.
