Default Tent on truck

Was looking for some smaller rugged style campers and came across these. Kinda neat, have one on a ranger near the bottom of the page.

That's great until you wake up at 2am needing to piss and forget you're up in the air when you leave the tent.

I thought bout buying a contour mattress for when the wife and I go camping but instead i thought of the single air mattress that I had and it fits perfect head to toe and side to side.

That.. is just too awesome!

I kinda worry about how much weight you can put on the sleeping area though, and how much time its going to last.


I was going to buy a tent like Scott, but seeing how the straps will scratch the clear like a cat in heat on a locked door, i opted not to.
