Truck Tent Features:
Truck tents come in a variety of styles, shapes and sizes. First and most obvious to buy one you need to know the size and dimensions of your pickup truck bed. Most people rattle off a description of their truck with something that includes the "cab" quad cab, king cab...that never matters, it's the bed size that counts. Know the measurements of the box with the tailgate up.
A major difference in truck tents is the tent floor. Some tents have sewn in floors other have no floors or an optional tent floor. If a truck tent has an integrated or sewn in tent floor, before you set it up you will have to unload everything from the bed. This can be inconvenient. Tents without a sewn in floor can be set up on the back of a pickup, leaving all the gear in the truck. Also tents without floors are easier to clean up. The hardest part of a tent to clean is the floor. Truck tents without a floor simply sweep out. Camp-Right offers an optional Accessory 101 that can be used as a tent floor if your truck bed is cruddy. Simply clip it onto the edges and it's ready to go.
Look at the instructions of the tent you are buying. Some truck tents have instructions that are eleven pages long, other offer simper installation with one page.
Tent poles. Some truck tents have poles that all look alike except maybe they are slightly different lengths. It's easy to put the wrong pole in the wrong place. Look for color coded poles and matching pole pockets for easy set up.
And finally, when you're done with your tent, will it fit in the stuff sack. Believe it or not some of the top selling truck tents can't even be packed back into the stuff sacks they come in. Large generous sized stuff sacks really make tearing down camp much more enjoyable since your tent is easier to fold and put away.
