If you’re hitting the trail, it makes sense to pack a lightweight and portable tent. But if you have a truck and happen to be setting up camp nearby your vehicle, why not make the most of the space you already have? Well, thanks to the Napier Backroadz Truck Tent, you can do just that.
With hundreds of perfect ratings earning it an overall 4.7-star mark, the truck tent has become a hit among Amazon shoppers who’ve used it for a range of situations. Sometimes the ground is too cold. Sometimes bears make themselves a little too comfortable nearby. Regardless of the reasoning, the tent has come to the rescue by keeping campers dry from the elements and adding some extra peace of mind. It’s also impressively durable, according to reviewers.
To buy: amazon.com, from $180
“I’ve set this tent up three times and it fits perfectly over my roll up bed cover,” one shopper said. “I had this tent set up in my truck a few nights ago when a bad storm came through. The winds were so strong that two other people’s pop-up canopies and three Port-a-Johns blew over in the storm. Due to the high winds, and torrential rain, I thought for sure there was no way this tent wouldn’t get destroyed but I was wrong. There was no damage to the tent at all. I unzipped it, and got inside. Completely dry. I couldn’t believe that this tent not only handled that kind of wind, but kept the inside of the tent dry.”
Since it’s made with color-coded poles, shoppers say it’s easy to assemble — even for the most novice of campers. “I am not a camper: Never tried it, never thought I would,” another reviewer said. “I wanted to do a hike that requires camping overnight so figured, let me get a tent. This truck tent is amazing. At about 9:30 p.m., at the campsite, we opened the box for the first time… This thing went from the box being opened to light hanging in the tent within 30 minutes. It was so easy! There were literally three straps on each side of the truck bed and three on the tailgate, three sets of connecting poles that basically snapped into place, and up it went. We literally did this in the dark with an iPhone light and truck bed light.”
For added comfort, the tent is designed with two large mesh windows for ventilation that can be closed for added warmth. What’s more, a full rainfly adds additional coverage from the elements while interior pockets help keep your belongings organized.
With plenty of travel plans on pause, camping is still one way you can get outside for fresh air and relaxation. Plan for your next camping getaway by heading to Amazon to shop the popular tent in the size specifically suited for your truck.
