Hi All!
I have a XL cot question for the group. What do you put under your cot legs to distribute the weight and prevent tent floor damage?
Thank you for your replies.

My son is using rubber drink coaster. They seem to work pretty good, are inexpensive, and don't take up much space. I used furniture leg coasters in the past.

When we were still tent campers, we had small 3" x 3" carpet squares...when in use, the pile of the carpet squares were against the tent floor.

We used carpet squares, too... we also put a good stout tarp down as a groundcloth to protect the other side of the floor from the ground.

I always use a ground cloth under my tent. For the cot, I have used tennis balls to protect the tent floor.
