This looks good but what do you do if you actually use your truck bed for what it was made for? I have a couple hundred pounds of tools in the back of my truck I wouldn't want to unload every night.
I received my mid sized Kodiac truck tent for my 2018 Chevy Colorado a few weeks ago and have managed to get out a couple of times camping. On receiving the tent it took about 30 minutes to an hour to figure out all the parts and set up the tent. I had to rethink the clamps as my truck has a tonneau cover and roof rack rails that run along the side of the bed. So using spring clamps and wood as spacers I could clamp the pole rail to the roof rack rail. The natural curvature of the poles pushing out held it in place without any problem. With the tonneau in place I could fit a full size mattress on top and have the whole bed for my rafting, kayaking and camping gear below. Being fine weather it was a easy system to set up and I am excited to see where this will take me. It now takes around 20 minutes to set up. I would have uploaded a couple of pictures to show what it looks like but it wouldn't let me.
I say initial review as I really haven't had a chance to use the tent in bad weather yet. So I hope that I can update this at a later date with more observations. In the meantime I'm heading back out to the river. Stay safe and happy adventures!!
Just spend six weeks camping in the Southwest US. CA, AZ, NM. From 20 degree cold nights to 90 degree daytime temps. Rain, dust, snow, and fair weather. This tent is great!
Toyota Tacoma 2017 with 5 foot bed. This tent was a little longer than I needed, however the extra few inches tucked easily between the bed and cap.
Take some time to learn to adjust the tent to front/back and left/right.
It took me 40 minutes to put up the first time! But I got that down to under 20 minutes with a little practice.
Understand that this is a very very durable and heavy tent set up. Not your coleman weekend easy set up variety.
Very well built. Very durable. Looks great. Works great
For those that say they can't make it work on a Tacoma with the cargo side rails - you gave up to easily. It's only a little tricky with the stock C clamps. You could get larger C clamps, but I didn't bother. Stock are fine.
Trying to set it up on my tacoma and the c clamps don't even clamp on my bed. I know it says some trucks may require different clamps but spending that much on a tent, the c clamps should fit better. Pretty disappointed with this tent so far.
Sorry to disappoint. The newer Tacoma does have a special track on the bed. It is very difficult to make one tent fit all beds. Some trucks may require a different clamp.
I own a 94 Toyota pickup with a 6'bed, the tent is over sized, most of the straps are pulled to the fullest tightness after being set up. I've adjusted the rails back and forth to try and get the best fit, or so called "sweet spot"and align the poles with the seems as the instructions say, but the tend is not tight fitting and makes me have much worry about its integrity in windy conditions.
I've tried fitting the tent around the tailgate only and then also trying it pulled all the way around the bumper because of the excessive tailgate material (which isn't listed in the instructions or pictures) and nothing seems to tighten the tent up.
A small tear in the fabric has shown around the awning straps due to trying to tighten up the tent and making it sturdy.
I'll try setting it up again when I have a few hours to spare, but I'm not very impressed at this point with the tent.
