Begin by measuring the bed of your truck with the tailgate closed. Our sizing guides will help you determine which tent is compatible with your truck.

No. Driving with the tent mounted to your vehicle may cause personal injury and/or damage to your tent and truck.

Yes. The tent will work with a sprayed, mat, or prefabricated liner.

Railings will work as long as they are less than 3” tall. Roll and sports bars must be removed.

No. Truck Tents will not work as long as the camper shell/cap is assembled. Napier SUV Tents are the best option as long as the height from the ground to the highest point of the cap window/door does not exceed 80”.

Please refer to the Warranty or Replacement Parts Section of the website.

Yes. One person is able to set up a Napier Truck Tent, however we do recommend having assistance during the first set-up. The first set-up should take approximately 15 minutes and about 10 minutes each time thereafter. Each tent comes with set-up instructions and color-coded poles for easy assembly.

Yes. We recommend placing the tent over the toolbox to minimize the amount of water that could enter between the box and the tent. It is also recommended to cover the corners of the toolbox to protect the tent from ripping on sharp edges. Please note that you will lose the amount of space that the toolbox occupies.

Our truck tents will fit over Roll-Up Tonneau Covers if the rolled-up tonneau cover is less than 6” high

As long as the back rack does not intrude onto the rails of the truck too far, it should not impact the functionality of the tent. Please email customerservice@napieroutdoors.com with a photo or the exact model of your back rack to determine if the rack is compatible.

Our tents already have a water-resistant coating on them. However, the coating may wear down over time and you may want to spray a water repellent coating onto the tent and rainfly after a few years of use. For additional protection and product maintenance, you may wish to use a seam sealant on your tent.

There is a one-year manufacturer defect warranty.  Please consult the Warranty section on the website.

    Tent is great and have been recommending this to everyone we see… Though this past weekend we did have a pole break. We’ve used it around 10 times so far since July of last years so this is somewhat disappointing. We’re outside the warranty period so, replacement part added to cart… Will still recommend to others though.

    Love it. Easy to install and tear down. Used to camp every day to another location. Can be move installed from one camp site to another at low speed without problems.

    Tent fits great in the back of the 2022 ranger. Fit over my rollup tonneau cover. Setup took around 10 15 minutes. Lots of room for me and the wife. Glad we got the link, gives so much more room for our gear without have to store any in the truck cab. The link is big enough for a small folding table and a cot as well. Took about the same amount of time to setup the link as well.

    Napier Backroadz Tent

    Hi there! I’m looking to buy a Napier Backroadz Tent for my 2022 Dodge Ram 1500 shortbox. I have a folding hard top cover, so my question is “will your tent work with the top folded up or would it need to be removed completely?

    I look forward to your response,

    Very easy to set up (took about 10 min) and perfect amount of space for 1 person with a camp cot.
    I sprayed all seems inside and out with tent sealant/waterproofing spray before using.
    Used the tent on a 4 day hunt and I only encountered a light rain and the rain fly kept the tent perfectly dry.
    The dome of the tent overhangs the box of the truck in such a way that any rain will not collect in the box of the truck.
    All in all I’m very happy with the purchase.

    This tent is awesome. It’s easy to put together on the truck & it’s size is fantastically large. A 5’4” individual can stand upright inside! The only mentionable characteristic may be that a queen air mattress can not fit through the opening after being blown up. The queen mattress, though, will fit nicely inside the tent & between the tires if blown up after placing it inside.

    5.0 out of 5 stars It works. It’s tent that fits in the bed of a truck and it does its job 100% I’m a Happy Camper.

    This review is based upon purchasing the product according to the fitment chart provided by the manufacturer. It should be noted that I purchased the Rightline Gear 110766 5 Foot Mid Size Short Truck Tent (5′) -Tall Bed and it did NOT fit and there were quite a few quality issues

    APPLICATION: 2015-2021 Chevrolet Colorado – Crew Cab / Short Bed

    PRODUCT: Napier Backroadz Truck Tent Compact Short Bed (5′-5’2″)

    Regarding the star ratings:
    Easy to assemble … 5 stars – Because it’s semi-intuitive and instructions are accurate
    Warmth ……………….. 5 stars – Because it’s a non insulated tent that was as warm as non-insulated tent should be. I didn’t rate 5 stars because it was “warm”
    Thickness …………….. 5 stars – Because it was not advertised as heavy duty or having some construction of some exotic strong materials it was up to expectation for durability

    While I do rate this a 5 star product, it is 5 star because it delivered on the claims and my expectations based on those claims. This is by no means is a premium tent but a great tent for a great price <$200.

    Having previously purchased a competitive product over this one purely for aesthetic / color reasons, I got a feel for how the truck bed tent experience could be and have a great comparison point. The Napier Backroadz is by far the superior design, as the recommended fitment was spot-on for my application as listed on their chart.

    Fitment – The truck bed tent fills the entire bed area. The width and height are spot-on with some extra interior material to spare. Being the Chevy Colorado has tall bed sides in relation to other Mid-Size trucks, this means that other Mid Size truck applications should also enjoy good fitment with additional interior material to spare. Unlike the other truck bed tent, the bed hold down straps are partially elastic which makes positioning and set-up much faster. With the no elastic straps every 1/2" of movement needed on one side had to be relieved in equal amounts on the 3 opposite side straps. The elastic makes for easy centering of the tent and once in position they can be pulled tot for the same kind of tension.

    Functionality / Size – The intention of the truck bed tent having the tailgate down is to the extend the sleeping area to greater than the 5'2"-5'6" area. This tent's design has a near vertical entrance panel making for the most amount of interior room offered. The other design has a dramatic slope putting your head or your feet within inches of the tent door surface when laying down. Additionally this tent has a nice high roofline. The extra head room is complimented by a "net' shelf at the top for placing lights that may not have hanging provisions … nice little bonus feature.

    Design – The biggest plus of this particular truck bed tent is that its completely enclosed. The bed area is not left open meaning the tent will keep out bugs, dust/dirt and have some degree better temperature insulation in just keeping the cold air from blowing in. Having had the competitive product without the interior liner, I can say that with the liner as this tent has, is the only way to go. The other floorless design was marketed as faster to set-up but the process after the first attempt for both was about the same.

    Initial First time set-up: 34 mins
    Second time set-up: 15 mins

    This trip was a success with this product and it worked on the application as advertised and survived 30-40 mph gusts in 30 degree F weather with some snow flurries without any issues. Happy Camper here.

    Criticisms and Suggestions
    – While I don't mind branding, the Napier logo on the rain fly is too big and obnoxious. I would not even take a picture of it.
    – Functionality is great but it could use a little help in the aesthetic design and color choices.
    – Make a premium model with better insulation / thicker materials / upgraded zippers.

    J’ai aimé votre tente. Le seul problème que j’ai eu à réparer le joint en acier entre les 2 tiges de fibre de verre a ouvert!! L’imperméabilité est parfaite pas une goutte malgré les orages!!!

    Just got this tent today. Was happy there were no missing parts and no damage. I was surprised there where no setup instructions included and I no wifi in the boonies to watch any setup video. However using common since I put the door at the tailgate and it didn’t take rocket science to figure out where all the straps went. It’s not hard to figure were the poles go, plus they colour coded. Only took me about 15 minutes to set it up by myself including the fly and it’s my first time doing it. I almost think instructions might have confused me.
