Have You Considered A Camping Tent For Your Truck

By: Gregg Hall

Truck tents are becoming more and more popular everywhere from West Coast to the East Coast and all the cities in between. Most stores are selling out of truck tents. Truck tents are a great way to incorporate the extra space from the back of the truck as your own personal camping area. For the price of a regular hotel you can purchase your own tents that will last for several years. These tents are easy to put up anything used almost anywhere in less than 20 minutes.

Sleeping outside is always a fun way to spend family time why not use the bed of your truck as your tent you will be surprised at how easy a truck tent is. You can also purchase an air mattress to use in your truck tent, then you'll be off the ground and sleeping on a comfortable mattress. These types of tents are very new but they are growing in popularity every day.

There are two major types of truck tents; one that has its own floor and one without floors. If you choose a tent that has a sewn in floor you will have to take out everything from the bed of your truck before you can put the tent up. If you purchase a tent without floors, then you can leave your gear in the truck while you set up the tent.

Some companies that sell truck tents will recommend that you face the truck a certain direction when camping. Usually the manufacturers will recommend that the front of the truck is facing into the wind. If you do decide to face your truck into the wind you may notice that it will help keep the rain out of your truck or tent. Many of the higher and truck tents are tight enough that it does not matter which way you face your vehicle.

Another major difference between truck tents is the type of polls that are used. Some manufacturers give tent poles that are color coded so they are a lot easier to install. For the tents that do not come with color coded tent poles many people do adjust to this and learn quickly how to install their truck tent correctly. Another downside to the variety of tent poles is that some tent poles actually require you to crawl inside the tent in order to put the tent up.

If you enjoy camping and you own a truck you should definitely try a truck tent. They are great way to enjoy the outdoors while sleeping off of the ground. Because you're sleeping off of the ground you're less likely to get wet from the ground. Also the sides of the truck offer you more protection from the wind and cold and you may find that you are warmer in a truck tent than you would be an irregular tent. Truck tents are a great new way for families and couples to enjoy the great outdoors together they do not cost very much money and you can find tents to fit almost every model of vehicle. The next time you are thinking about buying a new tent consider buying a truck tent.
