20,000 Mile Road Trip: Traveling The States With Napier Outdoors

View from inside Backroadz Truck Tent


I’ve been in love with the Napier Outdoors truck tents ever since the first time I saw one on the Internet. It’s such a unique and handy looking design, and I knew I had to put it to the test with a big trip across the United States.

My most recent road trip was a massive 20,000 mile project that covered a bunch of U.S. states and lasted almost six months. Most of this time was spent exploring the National Parks and other scenic places in Utah, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Washington and Oregon.

The Napier Backroadz truck tent performed great from the start. I got caught in a huge thunderstorm in Kansas on the very first night of the road trip (go figure!), and the ground around my truck had deep puddles of water. When I woke up it almost looked like I was camping in a pond or something. Any other tent probably would have been submerged and soaked, but the Napier tent kept me high and dry.

Some of my favorite places I explored on this trip were the canyons in Utah, Glacier National Park in Montana, the Tetons in Wyoming, and any of the mountains in Washington. The Napier tent was great in all of these locations and survived a lot of abuse. One of the things I love about the tent is how it doesn’t take up any extra space on the ground, so it makes finding that perfect camping spot even easier — just roll up to a level spot and put your vehicle in park!

Nowadays I travel the world full time, and I run a blog about international travel. Sometimes when I visit new countries, I miss my Napier truck tent and wish I could bring it with me for overseas camping! It really is that comfy.

Napier has a winner on their hands!
