The Backroadz Truck Tent may stop bugs from sleeping in your tent

Backroadz Truck Bed Tent

Trucks are viewed as vehicles for the rugged and tough. They can move several hundred pounds of rock or lumber, and can tow weights that would make a Geo Metro blush. We often associate this kind of transport with those who love the outdoors, and would always prefer to be out in the wilds fighting bears with their fists.

If you happen to fit that description perfectly and would like to sleep on something that is above ground level in the woods, then you might like the Backroadz Truck Tent. This is a tent made to fit your truck bed exactly. This was created in the same vein as the Pick-Up Pool we saw last week, but serves a different purpose. The materials for the truck bed tent are a rip-stop nylon for the body, polyethylene for the flooring, and shock-corded fiberglass tent poles.

This has an extra large entrance, which is a very good thing as it might be a bit awkward to get in to, and has sealed windows that will let you see the outdoors and breathe in fresh air without having to worry about anything that lives in it trying to come in and visit. There are different sizes for 5′ 5”-8′ truck beds, so you shouldn’t have to worry about a one-size-fits-all situation in which nothing actually fits anyone correctly. This will cost you anywhere from $160-220 should you have a need to go camping in your truck. Just remember that you’ll probably want to bring some form of padding to lay on, otherwise the ground might actually be more comfortable.
