Unique Ideas to Make the Most of Your Vehicle Camping Tent

As I was sorting through and re-organizing some of our images and files in the preparation of starting off the new year fresh and organized, I came across some of the most creative, and unique pictures. So I thought I would take the time to dedicate this blog post to what I would classify as some of the best ways to make the most of your vehicle camping tent and adapting to fit a unique lifestyle and adventure.

Please do note that while we don’t recommend the use of our products beyond their intended purpose and placement, I’m not one to condone anyone for thinking outside the box.

So here they are, in no particular order, my favorite ideas!

Using a step, stool or ramp on our truck tents:

Adding an additional trailer to the back of your truck and truck tent:

And when you don’t have an extra trailer, just use an extra truck bed for your truck tent:

Note that that is one is an old model of our 57 series truck tents.


And heck, if you don’t have a truck, just use a trailer for your truck tent:

Before I switch over to our SUV tents, here’s a final truck tent idea I think I need to try out myself: BUNK BEDS!

This is another old one (from 2007) – but still a good one! SUV tent attached to a trailer:

This last one is in the spirit of the upcoming holidays – decking a truck tent out with lights:

Feel inspired yet? and I’m sure there are so many more great set-ups out there I just haven’t seen. I’d love it if anyone could send them my way!


Did you know that our SUV tents can be used without being attached to a vehicle? You don’t need a car to go on an adventure with a Napier tent!
