Buying a new truck tent doesn’t have to be all that hard, but once you’ve purchased it, you might come to the realization that your buying journey doesn’t stop here. In order to make the most out of your chosen model, you should look into several truck tent accessories, depending on the car model you own and the type of tent you’ve recently bought. We’ve selected five of the best truck tent accessories that are available in today’s marketplace. Check them out below.
A mosquito net
There’s a high chance that your tent already features a preinstalled mosquito net. If the model you own is designed to sit on the ground, you probably already have the convenience of some folded margins that keep you and your friends away from crawling bugs. However, an extra mosquito net comes in handy for a variety of reasons. One of the most important ones seems to be that, if you’ve decided to have a long trip all across the country, there’s a likelihood the preinstalled mosquito net breaks down when you need it the most. Our advice to you is to purchase an additional one just to be on the safe side because it is by far one of the least durable parts in a truck tent.
Rechargeable LED lights
Going camping all by yourself? It might not be such a bad idea to bring a set of batteries and some lights with you so that you can enjoy some night time reading or just be able to see the faces of the people you’re talking to. Instead of taking a flashlight, although it sure comes in handy, consider some rechargeable LED lights. Some of the models we’ve come across can be charged using direct sunlight, which practically means that you’ll be able to utilize them for a very long time.
Waterproof poly tarp cover
A tarpaulin cover is a vital accessory to take into account, particularly if you’re not keen on rain pouring down on your head in the middle of the night when you are sleeping. This type of product is very handy in a broad range of circumstances, and the size of many units can be customized. A tarp cover is durable and weatherproof and can withstand anything from water to mildew.
A nice set of tarp hooks can’t compare with anything in the world. If you’re likely to use a tarp cover, some hooks are downright mandatory. While you’re at it, it sure wouldn’t hurt if you purchased some lobster clasps.
Many tents should be installed in the truck bed, but these come with a minor disadvantage compared to other kinds. They can leave the user feeling a bit claustrophobic as he or she might not have the luxury of watching the stars. Sure, one model differs from the next. However, if you plan on purchasing such a tent, it might be a good idea to look into some tent windows and decide whether or not you want to install one before going on the road.
