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. Our website also displays a sizing chart for your convenience.
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”.
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.
There is a one-year manufacturer defect warranty. Please consult the Warranty section on the website.
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.

This tent is super easy to set up and take down. If we go somewhere I can take the poles down and fold them, and the tent, into the back of the truck within 5 mins; to set back up takes under 5 mins. Can be done with 1 person.
The tent is super spacious. Sleeps 2 adults comfortably. We’ve slept 1 adult and 2 kids (11 and 8) comfortably as well. Enough room for a large bag and other items at the end of the bed (over tailgate area). I have 2018 GMC Sierra standard bed.
I’ve treated it with waterproof spray. I still get a small amount of water in it if the rain is consistent. The area is where the tent meets the tarp material at the front of the bed (near back window). I’m not convinced that this isn’t operator error, however I haven’t figured out how to set it up differently. The water pools in that area and eventually seeps in. The rest of the tent is fairly water tight. I do feel wetness if I rub the sides. I may treat it again. This is much better than I have encountered on many ground tents. I’m not sleeping in a river of water! I love that I am off the ground, away from most bugs and critters.
Suggestions for improvement: Allow the tent to have the option of covering the side windows with flaps on the inside (like the door) that way one may get more ventilation when needed. The rain fly tends to inhibit ventilation. Try an option of the “dark out” type tent colorings. This tent is very bright in the morning.
An air mattress made specifically for a truck bed is definitely worth the money. More comfortable and gives you more bed space.
I would buy this tent over and over. My son also has it. We are both very pleased.March 16, 2023
