Tips for Tent Camping in a Truck

Sleep under the stars, on a mountain, near a stream or in the forest,-you can camp just about anywhere you take your truck bed tent. No matter what campground or open area you choose, the outdoors is right outside your tent door. Camping lets you spend the night in remote places and take a break from these luxurious comforts of home. And, as great as it feels to be outdoors, it’s much harder to enjoy yourself without a good night’s sleep.

Here are a few tips to help you when you are camping with a truck bed tent.

When choosing tent camping sites, decide which amenities are most important. Do you prefer primitive sites with minimal resources or are you looking for easy access to showers and restrooms? Either way take the time to choose wisely.

Get the right bedding and consider what you plan to sleep on. In a truck bed tent you should have a good quality air mattress that fits the bed of your truck. Most people are used to sleeping indoors with total quiet, a mountain of pillows and a huge, fluffy mattress. To get things as close to your normal sleeping habits is a must when camping. You want to be rested for the next days activities. Custom-shaped for your truck, the AirBedz Lite Truck Bed Air Mattress features their patented wheel well cutouts. The optional wheel well inserts convert your air mattress for in-home use.

Be sure to wear yourself out. Sleeping in a tent is a lot better after a full day of hiking, fishing, paddling or swimming than if you just sit around the campfire eating hot dogs all day. Plan on crashing early, since there’s less to do outdoors when the sun goes down, and go to bed exhausted. This will help with getting a good night’s rest.

Even while roughing it, keep yourself as fresh as possible. Nobody likes sleeping in a tent with someone who smells like the trails and has dirty feet. We all know how hard it is to keep a tent clean. With a truck bed tent it is even harder. My advice is to have screen tent with a rug set up with your truck tent to help keep you feet clean. Use a cloth to sponge bathe in a creek or use a water jug, or baby wipes. Remember you’ll sleep much better when you’re more refreshed.

Sleeping in a tent is the worst when you’re half in a puddle of water or on unlevel ground. You don’t have to risk it or bring a waterproof tarp when camping if you are camping with a truck bed tent.

These tips are just a few ideas to help make your truck bed tent camping a great outdoor experience for you and your family.
