    I've got a 2011 access cab prerunner
    5' x 6'-5" bed. Will that tent fit my truck?
    Does the double cab have a smaller bed length?
    Do you like the tent?

    Yes the double cab has a smaller bed length it's almost a perfect square I couldn't find anything before a camping trip and had to make one out of PVC pipe and a 10"x10" tarp worked great ImageUploadedByTaco Forum1478665856.541253.jpg

    Yes I really like the tent, I got it on sale from AutoAnything.com
    I have no complaints just take your time setting it up the first time, and do it in the daylight. It can be tricky if you have never done one trust me lol.

    Ended up buying this from Amazon Prime $170. Arrived 3days
    I got the 6' compact size and it fits perfect. This is the first trip out with it and the first night was great! Fairly windy last night and there was a good amount of tent noise, mostly from the rain cover and straps. Put in some earplugs, problem solved. A few things would make it better (side hinged door, window flaps and a back window to cab access). The double cab trucks have the tent to cab access .

    I cut a piece of 1/4"MDF to fit around the wells for a flat surface to lay on instead of laying on the bed ribs. A couple of self inflating sleeping mats, moving blanket and 30*mummy bags.
    Thanks for your input and photos !

    Besides looking cool, what are the advantages of a bed tent over a ground tent?

    Keeps you out of snow or rainy wetness.
    You're up and out of reach from the ants and bugs that might get all up on your tent or in it.
    Don't have to rake and shovel to create a level surface to place your tent.
    Relocating to another camp spot is as easy as starting up the truck.
    All these things might be parts of tent camping that are fun for some people, I can do without them.

    Looked at a tent set up at the dealership, not sure how much it cost but took a couple pictures. Makes it hard to move if you have to, and might be a little shaky in a high wind, but cool idea.
