Tip #1 – The front corners of the tent have split seams that go over the front corners of the bed. Make sure that the front corners of the tent stay in the position shown below during set up.
Tip #2 – As you follow the Truck Tent Set Up Guide, make sure that you keep the seam along the side of the tent even with the top of your truck bed as shown below. There are two seams along each side; you want to match up the lower seam. It’s very common for the outside straps to get over tightened, pulling this seam down below the top of the bed, preventing a proper fit.
Tip #3 – The dark gray fabric on the sides of the tent does not extend all the way to the back end of the truck bed. The end of the truck bed and most of the taillights will be covered by the lighter gray material as shown below. If you try to match up the end of the dark gray fabric with the end of the truck bed, you will not be able to keep the front corner of the tent as shown in Tip #1.
We hope these tips will help you during set up. Please feel free to call us with any additional questions you may have.
