Gerda, I too love sleeping in a tent, and still do that in the back country. I guess I could see if the Escape floats and pull it behind the canoe.
We have comfy down filled air mattresses that are real nice. I don't worry at all about the weather though, and have slept in a tent in many a blizzard and rain storm.
That said, where at all possible, the Escape will always be my preference.
