Backroadz Truck Tent
No plan? No problem. The Backroadz Truck Tent was built with the outdoors in mind. With its simple and secure setup, you can have a spacious shelter with over 5ft of headroom in minutes. The large door makes entering a breeze, and with sewn in storm flaps and flooring, privacy and weather protection is never issue. For added water resistance, quickly throw on the included rainfly!
Note: During assembly, ensure the tailgate pole is set-up on the outside of the tailgate wires.

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.
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.
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.

I really love most things about this tent – being up off the ground is amazing, easy to set up, I love the extra head room it gives over a traditional tent.
The major downside we encountered was the “rain fly”. Fair warning: if you plan to camp when there is even a slight chance of rain, bring a large tarp and rope and be prepared to use it, because the fly is basically useless for keeping all but the very top dry. There is no peak out over the doorway whatsoever – it essentially curves INWARD which directs water TOWARDS the inside of the tent. Had we not brought a tarp we would have been soaked. It does not extend down far enough to protect the full sides, and the back is not much better.
It’s a disappointing system for an otherwise great tent, and it would be so easily remedied with a better-designed fly.
I don’t expect a tent fly to keep me dry in a hurricane but at the very least it would be great if it didn’t actively direct rain into the doorway.August 25, 2021
I purchased this tent over a year ago, but never had a chance to use it until now with a cross country road trip. It is awesome. Easy to set up, even in the dark. I either rolled it up with a cushion for a mattress inside it or left it all set without the poles in the bed of the truck and with the tonneau cover over everything. Cold nights and moderate wind didn’t make a difference at all.October 5, 2020
We’ve had this tent for 2 summers now and it is fantastic! Tall interior is great for getting changed etc. We have a tacoma long bed and put a platform inside the bed so we can have a futon mattress inside. Two pluses are 1) you’re off the bed of the truck so can sit on end of mattress and still be inside the tent and 2) sleeping on a proper mattress. We do all this before we leave then fold everything in and put the tonneau cover on top. Stealth!September 8, 2020
My Backroadz tent arrived yesterday evening before dark.
Fist time setting it up took 20 minutes trying to be careful not to miss anything.
Some difficulty getting poles into place and through a struggle learning curve realized if you lossen all tie downs it expedited the installation.
Once fully in place and tightened down the next struggle was the rain fly.
It fits the front or cab end well yet at the tailgate the angels are off.
Workmen ship around side windows are not as clean as one might expect however it is secure.
Door has only one set of toggles to hold both door and screen a second set would be nice for the screen door otherwise it just hangs waiting to be damaged.
These are minor things that are noticeable .
On the positive side!
Roomy interior and the roof vent a big score for me.
Fits snugly to my 2011 Ram1500 and once completely closed up took the garden hose test without a leak.
The price was fair and worth what I received.
Even some friends are looking to get one now after seeing what I have !

This tent was the perfect addition for my camping/fishing expeditions. It fit my 2011 Chev Silverado Crew Cab perfectly. I can set it up by myself in about 15 minutes. I’ve used it in wind and rain and it stood up to both, tremendously. Paired with an air mattress that fits the bed of my truck, I’ve had the best sleeps I’ve ever had in a tent.July 10, 2020
Wow. This tent was great. Fit my 2019 ram perfectly, lots of room inside and i woke up comfortable and dry in the morning even though it was pouring rain over night. Would highly recommend this tent in a heartbeat. Set up and take down was easy too.September 15, 2019
