Napier Sportz Avalanche III Review


Notable features


The most important thing about the Sportz Avalanche is that it is very roomy for a truck bed tent, therefore presenting a great alternative to an ordinary tent, or a very expensive RV. When you go camping, sleeping arrangements can be setup fast and easy with the help of this very convenient option. The Avalanche offers 5.5 feet of headroom and it is large enough to accommodate two people with ease. If you are planning a trip to the great outdoors with your significant half, you will find this model a great choice for your needs.

Comfort is not something to take lightly when camping in the woods and this is something people always search for in the best truck tent bed. The Avalanche does not disappoint in this respect, either. A sewn in floor offers the best possible conditions when you have to sleep away from any accommodations. You will also notice that when you extend the truck bed tent over the tailgate, you will get plenty of shade, so this is the perfect setup for summer trips. As for as comfort is concerned, the sewn in floor allows you to setup the tent without having to clean the bed in advance. You will certainly love how easy it is to access the cab of your truck through the rear door of the tent.

Easy setup is the third notable feature of this model. It takes only 10 minutes to set up the car tent and the color coded poles will help you figure everything out without any hassle. The poles are made of fiberglass, so they are fairly resistant to breakage. A carry bag is readily available, when you want to store your tent away for the times when it is not in use.

Intended use


The Sportz Avalanche is a great choice for all the times when you want to leave the hustle and bustle of the city for a bit of fresh air. The best part about it is that you do not have to bring along a standard on the ground tent which could take valuable space from your trunk. This one is easy to setup and it is especially recommended for traveling during warm weather.

Even tall people will appreciate having so much room, since this model is very spacious. You will not have to deal with the usual unpleasantness that accompanies sleeping in the woods. By sleeping off the ground, you will not have to fight all kinds of critters all the time, while the ventilated meshes the canvas comes with allows you to have plenty of breathable air.

The interior pockets serve well for storing gear away, so you can enjoy the plenty of space offered by the truck bed tent.
