Nice tent Scott! I snagged a Ford-branded one (no pics yet, sorry! Napier was the OEM though) from ebay and used it for the first time last weekend. I loved it, and it worked really well, but it doesn't have the part that extends over the tailgate like yours. It rained, of course, and so the portion of my bedrug on my tailgate ended up a very wet welcome mat into my tent There are steps I could take to avoid that, but I may try to sell this tent and get one like yours. (Too bad - the ebay price was fantastic and I like the Ford branding. Hmm - maybe I'll just try to make a fly for off the back...)

BTW, an inexpensive twin air mattress fits perfectly between my wheel wells, and the spaces ahead and behind the wheel wells are where I shoved bags and things anyway, so I decided against the fitted truck bed air mattress. (I may ditch the air mattress for a foam pad anyway, however, since as STL pointed out, with a bedrug I hardly need a mattress )

After one use, I can tell there's no way my wife and I would be comfortable camping together with the available space in there! Of course we're older, and I'm a bit on the portly side right now - younger and/or fitter couples may fare better

PS: Anyone wondering if this will work with the BakFlip bed cover still installed, the answer is YES! Just fold that cover up against the back window, and the few inches it takes up won't affect the function if the tent - it just doesn't look quite as perfect near the cab, but there is no impact on the function that I could tell. (EDIT: unless you have a cable pass-through, in which case you won't have access to the rear window with the BakFlip folded up.)

Isn't that a cable pass-through for vehicles with a sliding rear window? (I don't have that pocket thingy, so I'm not sure.)

Yeah i looked that up online and its for cables and what not if you have the slider. Would be cool if you could rig up some hose contraption and run some ac in the tent
