For camping or overlanding, most pickup truck owners invest in an RV or maybe even a trailer. Why sacrifice the comforts of home when you have the right options? On the flip side, purists want nothing more than to clean up their leisure form, which is why the stuff mentioned above is absolutely out of the question. Then the GentleTent GT Pickup might be better for you.
No fancy installation is required here to power your makeshift shelter or whatever. Instead, it’s a purely off-grid proposition, boasting top-notch quality and features to make your outdoor outings a pleasure. GentleTent prefers to call the GT Pickup the “Taco Tent”, which seems fair considering the shape, which it resembles after full use.
This vehicle-based camping equipment uses the space on the loading area of your double-cab pickup as well as the roof. From what we can see from the images provided by GentleTent, your vehicle may need to have a frame. Unfortunately, a single cabin version is not available as the area is needed for a full size mattress.
On the GentleTent product page it is noted that the GT Pickup is compatible with popular platforms such as Colorados, Tacomas, Rangers and Frontiers. It can fold into a very portable 7 inches tall and weighs only 62 pounds. Due to its inflatable nature, it is easy to transport and store.
Once installed, there should be a living area approximately 5 feet long and 7 feet high. Several mosquito windows keep the nasty bite bugs away and ensure excellent ventilation. The GT pickup tent uses a waterproof and breathable material to maintain a refreshing climate inside.
