Default Nap Cots????

I have been looking everywhere for nap cots. eBay, Walmart, target, everywhere!!! The cheapest I've found is at daycare furniture direct, 6 for $129.99, but with shipping it ends up being $170. Is this the best price, or do any of you know where I can find them for less?

They are all pretty expensive. I just use mats, but that's mostly because of space. I don't have a good spot for cots.

Have you tried craigslist?

I got two cots [needing to be recovered] from my son's old preschool - call around, see if an preschools/nursery schools are selling their used cots [or giving them away-which was my case!]

I have tried cl with no luck. I've called all of the other daycares and preschools in my area and none are selling/buying new ones.

Thanks for posting the links, I think I'm going to buy from Costco. They have the best deal that I've found.

I just got these from DSS and so far am loving them. They are by far the cheapest cots I found and they are really nice. The assembly was very easy, no tools required, took about an hour total, maybe less.

Can you take a picture of one from directly above it? I've looked online leaning towards these but want to see an image from directly above instead of angeled. I don't plan to use sheets from the Angeles Company so don't add it to the picture if you are able to post one. Thanks!
