Hey All, Anyone have any experience with truck bed tents (like the one from Napier)? I don't have the cash for the nice platform ones... but would love to get off the ground. Any suggestions?

If OP is anything like me then the budget is about 1/2 what they retail for. I love the idea of a RTT but I can pick up a used pop-top trailer for the same money. I get that you are paying for the engineering but DANG! I have noticed RTTs hold their value very well though. When they actually show up on craigslist they are usually only around 25% less than new.

I found a used bed tent on craigslist for $30. The guy only used it a few times. I don't recall the brand, but it fit snug and worked when I needed it, before I got my RTT.

I bought this one online (amazon) for 50 bucks. it was a bit big for the bed but did the job. I then bought a 20 $ inflatable mattress at big 5. so total spent was 80 bucks. my wife and I slept fine in this , the only annoying part is having to assemble the poles and inflate the bed. still though, great if your on a budget.
