Rightline Gear SUV Tent On Truck Caps

Truck caps, toppers, camper shells… whatever you call them, Rightline Gear SUV Tents have always been able to fit around them. We have never taken photos to show this setup before now (for some crazy reason?). The SUV Tent is a natural for this type of camping.

The vehicle sleeve of the SUV Tent goes around the rear of the Truck just like it goes around the rear of an SUV, minivan, crossover, wagon, etc.

The rear window of the topper raises up, the lower sleeve straps over it, and the upper sleeve is supported. The rear window functions just like the rear hatch door with the other vehicles.

The (2) longer orange straps that normally extend into the SUV will extend into the truck bed. It is easiest to attach them to the rear corner cleats of the truck bed, however, there are other places available for them to attach as well. The center orange strap attaches on or close to the rear license plate. The black outer straps attach to the same locations as they do on the other vehicles.

The most surprising thing about this set up is that the tailgate extends just a short distance into the tent itself. It will not get in your way.

Now, you can sleep in the comfort of your truck bed, hopefully with a truck bed air mattress, and still have room to stand up when putting on your jeans in the morning. The extra space can also be used to sleep additional campers. Add the SUV Tent’s rainfly and you will be protected against the elements.

The universal fit of the SUV Tent will allow it to work with any size pickup truck, F150 or Tacoma. Lifted trucks are not a problem. The SUV Tent can be left standing while you detach your truck and go about the days adventures.

    I am looking for a camper shell boot tent as shown here. How do I get this and how much does it cost? Also, when the truck shell window is open how do you protect the tent from not getting torn by the corners of it? Thanks

    Our SUV Tent retails for $259.95 and you can purchase from any one of our online retailers or local dealers listed on our ‘Where to Buy’ page – http://rightlinegear.com/where-to-buy.html

    As far as protection against the corners of the truck shell window, our product team did not experience any tearing issues when it was tested for this article. However, if you wanted to be extra precautious, we could certainly suggest applying foam to the corners of the window. Please give us a call if you need any further assistance with this.

    Hello. The truck pictured with a cap attached to our SUV Tent is a Chevy Silverado. Most any make and model of truck and cap will work with our SUV Tent.
