This is designed to suit full-sized pickups from different vehicle manufacturers including Chevy, Ford, GMC, Nissan, Toyota, among many others. This model is built to Sportsman’s Guide’s exact specifications to ensure long-lasting quality, dependability and unmatched value. This model is absolutely easy to set up using just a total of four poles. The tent comes with shock-corded fiberglass poles and tension straps that secure it to your vehicle to keep the tent sturdy and rigid.

This truck tent enables you to sleep comfortably inside. It is a two-sleeper unit that is lightweight and ensures excellent ventilation. You can get inside and out with ease using the convenient

large D-shaped door. In addition, the mesh windows ensure that you can breathe easily while inside by allowing the free flow of air while also ensuring privacy. You can sleep comfortably on the patented sewn-in polyethylene flooring away from the cold surface of the truck bed. There’s enough headroom at 5.25 feet in the large interior area to allow you to move around with reduced effort. The tent is a fully-enclosed structure in green to ensure less maintenance and lower tendency to pick up dirt quickly.

Intended use


Constructed in accordance to Sportsman’s Guide’s exact specifications, this particular model works well with some of the most popular pickup trucks from such brands as Chevy, Ford, GMC, Nissan, Toyota and many others. It is designed for installation on the bed of a pickup truck. It installs using the included 4 poles, all fiberglass.

It’s a dome-style tent that resembles standard dome-type camping tents that are staked to the ground, the only difference being this model allows you to sleep elevated off the lumpy, uncomfortable surface of the ground. It may fit slightly different from truck to truck but this is a fully enclosed model that also comes with tension straps that secure onto your vehicle.

It even comes with its own heavy-duty, weather-resistant polyester carrying bag, perfect for those who are constantly on the go and really don’t have time to figure out how to store everything neatly after use. The tent sleeps two, perfect for you and a buddy, family member or a special someone. It fits most full-sized beds 79″ to 81″ and 63″ x 79″. It even has two storage pockets for your gear plus a full rain fly for protection from the elements.




Known issues


This truck bed tent should preferably be set up by two people, taking special care to work without using too much force on the straps and poles, as well as adjusting the seams nicely to prevent them from easily coming apart. Although the tent has been subjected to quality control at the factory, like any other piece of equipment, it should not be treated roughly.
