Sleep beneath the stars, on a mountain, near a stream or at the forest,-you can camp just about anywhere you take your truck bed. No matter what campground or open space you choose, the outdoors is right outside your tent door. Camping allows you to spend the night in distant places and take a break from such luxurious comforts of home. And, as good as it feels to be outdoors, it’s far more difficult to enjoy yourself without a good night’s sleep.
Here are a few pointers to help you once 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 searching for effortless access to showers and restrooms? Either way take the time to choose wisely.
Get the ideal bedding and consider what you intend to sleep on. In a truck bed tent you need to have a fantastic quality air mattress that fits the bed of your truck. Most people are accustomed to sleeping indoors with total quiet, a mountain of cushions and a huge, fluffy mattress. To get things as close to your normal sleeping habits is a must when camping. 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 daily. Plan on crashing early, since there’s less to do outside 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 clean as possible. Nobody likes sleeping in a tent with someone who smells like the paths and has dirty feet. All of us know how hard it’s to keep a tent clean. Having a truck bed tent it’s even harder. My advice is to have screen tent using a rug setup with your own 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 will sleep much better when you are more refreshed.
Sleeping in a tent is the worst if you are half in a puddle of water or on unlevel ground. You don’t need to risk it or bring a waterproof tarp when camping if you are camping with a truck bed tent.
These tips are only a couple suggestions to help make your truck bed tent camping a excellent outdoor experience for you and your loved ones.
