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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.

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.
My husband bit 2 weeks ago
Just came back from camping
Glad he brought back up tent
Weather was cold but had water leaking through
It was damp…. During the night we had water drops dropping on us
Wet everywhere inside tent.
We were damp… as if we’re we’re out side
Had to return tent
Would not recommend at all
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.
I highly recommend this tent I’ve had such a great time camping again even though it’s cold here in Nebraska in December I use my heat fan to keep warm. I also got some friends buying there’s this spring and do some traveling together as well.
I purchased this tent over a year ago, but never had a chance to use it until now with a cross country road trip. It is awesome. Easy to set up, even in the dark. I either rolled it up with a cushion for a mattress inside it or left it all set without the poles in the bed of the truck and with the tonneau cover over everything. Cold nights and moderate wind didn’t make a difference at all.
We’ve had this tent for 2 summers now and it is fantastic! Tall interior is great for getting changed etc. We have a tacoma long bed and put a platform inside the bed so we can have a futon mattress inside. Two pluses are 1) you’re off the bed of the truck so can sit on end of mattress and still be inside the tent and 2) sleeping on a proper mattress. We do all this before we leave then fold everything in and put the tonneau cover on top. Stealth!
