Sportz Truck Tent Blue/Grey:

This tent has a great variety of sizes, so it guarantees to fit your truck bed. Also, the quality of the material is good. The main complaint about this truck bed tent is that the tent leaks a little on rainy days. If you are a heavy camper I would advise to look at other truck bed tents.

Description from the manufacturer:

  • This roomy tent sleeps 2 people with over 5.6 feet of headroom and is the only truck tent on the market with a sewn in floor
  • Large rear access panel allows you to access the truck’s cab for additional storage while the large entrance door, 2 mesh windows, and side vents allow for great ventilation

Rightline Gear 110730 Full-Size Standard Truck Bed Tent:

This tent is easy to setup and is good quality considering the price. Though, I would be careful when setting up the tent though as the seams are not that strong.

  • Floorless design allows for set up without removing gear from the bed
  • Protective heavy duty straps and nylon buckles, won’t damage truck’s finish. Color coded poles and pole pockets for quick and easy setup

Among the other truck bed tents, this truck bed tent wins my vote. It is well priced and the quality is great. The setup is easy. The only complaint is that it is for cab height toppers only.
