Default Bed Tent FTW

I recieved this last friday from Lazler. I was supposed to take it to the OBX meet, but it didnt come in time [not his fault, the canadian post messed up the address] Im buying it from him providing i like it...I freaking love it!!! So Laz, consider it sold...lol. My brother and I set it up yestersay evening to see how hard/easy it was. For the very first time assembling it, not so bad. I didnt have it perfect the first time, so i undid everything and started over and it turned out perfect (I think). hardes part was finding a good mounting place on the frame for the straps. Im going to buy the special air matress that fits around the wheel wells for it and take it camping soon hopefully to a lake or river!









(last two pics are Lazler's)

That's awesome! does is have opening so you can access the truck through the slider window because that would make it perfect.

That's awesome. I always wanted to build some kind of canopy for the back of my truck to extend out from the cap's lift up window. Not that I stand back there much but been on a few FD incidents where the back of my truck became a command post and the shelter would have been nice.

Those are genius, you never have to worry about waking up in a puddle again, the air mattresses just make it a perfect set up. i only camp once a year but i still want one.
