If you love the outdoors and camping on the fly, there are many tents for truck beds that make it easy to explore your passion.
These tents are designed to specifically fit in a pickup truck bed. Most of them function similarly to regular ground tents but have special poles and straps that let you attach them to your truck. These tents are ideal for when you aren’t hauling a lot of gear in the bed since they require all of the bed for use. They can also be used with roll-up tonneau covers and toolboxes, though the toolbox may have to stay in the tent with you. Most of these tents have all the features you love, including two large windows, a fly rain and a door. Some even have a small window that lets you access the cab of the truck easily. Since they fit in the truck bed, most only sleep two people.
Price is one of the biggest benefits of these types of tents. Instead of investing in a truck bed rack for a tent, these tents are already designed to fit your ride. Another benefit you get is the elevation. Along with not having to worry about sleeping on uncomfortable rocks, roots or uneven ground, you can park anywhere and have the perfect place to sleep. Adding a simple bedding mat provides a touch of cushioning to maximize the experience. Being off the ground also means not having to deal with unwanted water pooling underneath or creatures finding a way in. Lastly, a little leverage often gives you views you don’t get from the ground.
When you choose a pop up tent for the bed of your truck, you are getting a sleeping accessory that is easy to use and store. Since they are similar to a normal tent, they come in handy storage bags. That means simply taking out the parts and assembling, and then taking the tent down and folding it back up. Since these are two-sleepers, they tend to fold up relatively small. That means you can easily store it under the backseat bench or secure it in the truck bed.
