Unsure if you have them in the US or if you call them something else.

One of these things -

They come with a basic 2-3 inch foam mattress inside. You can also leave your sleeping bag in it when rolling it up. I've had my best's night sleep ever in these - pitch black, warm when cold, cool when warm, stops wind, and will stay dry even in a heaviest downpour and you can stay cool with all the vents open on a hot night.

I don't think you need cookers or much else really.

If this question was on an Australian forum, the almost universal answer would be "A swag". I agree. Tent/mattress/sleeping bag/pillow all roll up together. Set up/pack up in seconds and throw it on the back seat of the car.

Nothing else needed, but if you would like to sit by a campfire, then add a cheap folding chair and a cigarette lighter. Assuming you are sleeping next to your car then the car's lights and a mobile phone are adequate light sources for an overnight stop.
