Traditional camping may not be everyone’s idea of a good time – spending hours setting up a tent only to sleep a thin layer of fabric away from the cold, hard ground. Fortunately, there’s an easy way to make camping enjoyable even for those that would rather order room service than rough it. Instead of your run-of-the-mill camping set-up, truck tents and rooftop tents provide an unbeatable way to upgrade your next outdoor getaway. Be the envy of other outdoorsman with these easy camping ideas.
Your truck bed is the perfect platform to serve as a cozy campsite. By bringing your sleeping bags up off the ground, a truck camping tent makes it possible to rest up without getting down and dirty. Whether you invest in a custom-sized tent or a universal design that fits most pickups, these camping upgrades are just as affordable as their more traditional counterparts. Truck tents are easy to install with durable components such as color-coded fiberglass poles and seam-sealed rain flys, with most offering ample head room upwards of 5’5”.
The next evolution in camping comfort, truck bed air mattresses take your trip from so-so to oh-so-soft. Crafted from puncture-resistant materials with a custom design for your specific truck bed, a comfortable camping mattress is the ideal addition to any trip. Transforming your pickup in a matter of minutes, truck bed air mattresses are easy to inflate and deflate whether they’re equipped with a built-in hand pump or include a portable air pump.
There is comfort-creating truck camping gear – and then there are rooftop tents. Going above and beyond truck tents, literally, rooftop tents take your campsite towards the sky. Mounting securely to your roof rack system, a rooftop tent stores easily out of the way when not in use while providing an instant campsite when you reach your out-of-the-way destination. While one of the more costly truck camping ideas, rooftop tents offer the added luxury of ensuring your safety from predators and pests. Rooftop tents can also be used with a wide-variety of vehicles including trucks, vans, Jeeps and SUVs.
