The peak of summer is upon us and getting out into the great outdoors for some camping, hiking, and off-roading is what the season is intended for, right? If you own a pickup truck, you can transform it from an off-roading or towing machine into an oasis after a long day on the trails. These three truck tents give a whole new meaning to "mobile home" by elevating your camping experience and allowing you to avoid the dirt, moisture, and critters that like to make their home on the campground floor.
Peaktop Outdoor Truck Tent
The Peaktop Outdoor Truck Tent ($180) is waterproof, durable, and roomy enough for two campers to enjoy a good night's sleep after a full day of adventures. This truck tent is easy to assemble with color-coded instructions and measures 74.8'' x 62.3'' x 66" when fully set up. Once assembled on your truck bed, it will keep you dry and mosquito bite-free.
Constructed from breathable polyester material, this tent comes with mesh doors and windows so you can fall asleep to a cool breeze or to the sound of crickets chirping. The Peaktop Outdoor tent comes with an inner tent and an outer tent cover, fiberglass, and steel poles and a carrying case to help you transport it. Just add sleeping bags or an air mattress and your portable bed is made.
Guide Gear Full-Size Truck Tent
We don't think it's any coincidence that they called it a "truck bed". Take full advantage of your Ford F-150, RAM 1500 or Chevy Silverado's bed and use it for more than just hauling. The Guide Gear Full-Size Truck Tent ($100) is a great value for anyone that likes to take the road less traveled and stay awhile. This affordable tent sleeps two and will keep you and your camping buddy dry and warm thanks to its fully enclosed construction.
The Guide Gear truck tent is lightweight, easy to assemble and comes in a heavy-duty carrying bag to keep it in good condition for years of use. Its mesh windows will keep you cool on the mid-summer camping trips and there are two storage pockets to stash the gear you want to keep close by. Its airy 5.25' of headroom will prevent you from feeling claustrophobic and the large door opening makes climbing in and out a piece of cake (or should we say "S'more"?)
Napier Backroadz Truck Tent
Disconnecting from the hustle and bustle of city life and technology can work wonders for your well-being. That same trusty truck that helps you get the job done on a daily basis can also help you unwind after a hard day's work. Make your full-size truck work even harder for you so you can play hard and then get the rest you need with the Napier Backroadz Truck Tent ($180).
This truck tent measures 29" x 9.5" x 9.5" and weighs only 8 lbs for easy transport. Its smart design comfortably sleeps two campers and also keeps them organized with a gear loft, gear pockets, and even a lantern holder. The mesh doors and windows come equipped with storm flaps so you can enjoy the sound of the rain instead of stressing about your gear getting drenched. Want to feel like a true outdoorsman?
