A Truck Tent Turns Your Truck Into A Portable Campsite

Defined Tag:

The truck tent is an extremely popular accessory today. It is a tent that installs in the bed of a pickup truck. It has many of the features of a regular ground tent, except that it is designed to fit inside the bed of a pickup truck. These truck style tents tend to make your truck look like a big neon turtle when assembled, but they are an innovative way to enhance the versatility of your truck.

Tents for trucks have to be purchased for a specific make and model of pickup truck. Sometimes it is sufficient to simply specify the type and year of truck you have. Custom fitting might be needed to install a tent in certain types of trucks. This installation is not permanent, however. Like a regular ground tent, tents for trucks are made to be quickly and easily erected and stowed. The differences are that these tents are anchored to your truck bed, and lie on the truck bed floor instead of on the ground.

There are many benefits to using a pickup tent. The first is that anywhere you can park becomes your campsite. Check the local regulations as to whether vehicles are allowed inside the area in which you wish to camp. A huge benefit is that your tent is off the ground by several feet. The metal truck bed can be harder than the ground, but air mattresses or cushions can fix that problem. You'll never exit your truck's tent directly onto muddy or wet ground, nor will you have to worry about your tent being flooded.

Some tents require the tailgate of your truck to be down, while others do not. Ask the tent manufacturer if this is a requirement, or you may purchase the wrong size tent. Often the tent occupies only the bed part, and the tailgate serves as a type of porch. Rain flies or flaps are available to protect the tent entrance from precipitation. Most truck fitted tents have windows that allow one to see outside while maintaining privacy. Most pickup tents can sleep two people comfortably.

If you are on a cross-country or wilderness trip and don't want the cost of hotels, consider one of these tents. They are easily disassembled so that you can use your truck bed for other cargo. The truck tent offers a degree of freedom that is not available with other vehicles.
