TAP has published a Roof Top Tent Buyer’s Guide and an Off-road Trailer Buyers Guide. We thought we would add another camping option that might interest some of you; truck and SUV tents.  The following is not a review as we have not used any of these products. It’s not an endorsement and we haven’t been paid for writing this. It is simply a guide to show you what we have seen out there and to pass the information on to you. All write-ups come directly from the companies, so check out these possible options and TAP into Adventure!

Truck Tent Design Features

3The Rightline Gear Truck Tents let you experience camping in full comfort, up off the ground, without the complication of tarps, stakes, and guy lines. Camp wherever your truck can take you, no matter the weather. The Rightline Gear Truck Tent features a floorless design that allows you to set up and take down the tent without removing your gear from the bed and completely covers the tailgate of the truck, allowing you to use every inch of available space. You will appreciate the time savings when using your truck to get around for the day. If your truck bed is greasy or grimy, you will also appreciate keeping your tent away from that mess. The use of a standard tarp to cover the floor (that can be washed and kept separate from the tent) is a great idea if your truck bed is less than clean. Sleeps up to 2 adults, and all windows and doors have no-see-um mesh and storm covers. Special attention has been paid to achieve a highly water resistant design as it is our goal is to keep you dry. The tent is outfitted with (2) gear pockets, a lantern hanging hook, rain fly, glow-in-the-dark zipper pulls, and a sky view vent. For more info visit www.rightlinegear.com   Check out Rightline’s photo rich Truck Tent step by step set up guide HERE  and their truck tent specs HERE.  To find the correct tent for your truck, measure the inside of your truck bed with the tailgate up and check the Truck Tent Sizing Guide.
