Visitor's story.....

A truck tent, as the name suggest is a tent that sits on the rear pickup area of the truck. There are a few tips that can help you use the Truck tent camper efficiently.

If there are mosquitoes in the camping area, you might find it a little difficult to go in and out of your tent without allowing a few of them into the tent. To avoid this, you need to pitch your tent such that the entrance faces the wind. Mosquitoes will always swarm on the other side where the wind is less!

When you fold the Truck tent camper after use, also ensure that there is a way for the air inside to escape. This will help you to easily collapse the tent without having air trapped inside. When you roll the tent after collapsing, roll it towards an open door or window to allow the escape of air.

When you fold your tent, try to fold it along the original fold lines. Maintaining the same fold lines will keep them visible even after a long period of use. Before you fold and roll your tent, sweep the interiors thoroughly so that tiny rocks, dirt, twigs or leaves are swept out of the tent.

Unlike regular pop up campers, the space inside truck tents is quite minimal. It is therefore light and compact and easy to use. The popup tent can be quickly pitched and taken down within a matter of minutes. But of course, all the facilities in regular pop up campers would not be available in a popup truck tent. Nevertheless, the truck tent has its own separate use which is indispensable in certain situations. Its compactness and lightweight are probably the biggest advantages.
