After All, It's Called a Truck Bed!
Camping is a great way to get in touch with your inner Ralph Waldo Emerson, and in Colorado, there's no shortage of great places to camp. In fact, there are so many that you might want to hit more than one campsite in a weekend. And for that, we recommend a truck bed tent.
So let's say you just got your new GMC Canyon and you're ready to get lost, what equipment do you need? Well, beyond plenty of water, plenty of warm clothing, your map, your pooch, and a first aid kit, you'll need to get a truck bed tent and a truck bed mattress.
Always do your research -- you should know how big your truck bed is anyway -- and try one of these:
Napier Backroads Tent -- $177.74
Kodiak Canvas Truck Bed Tent -- $349.99
Napier Model 51000 Truck Bed Tent -- $179.99 (perfect if you have kids)
Kingcamp Auto Shade Truck Tent -- $119.99
For the mattress, the AirBedz Lite Truck Air Mattress seems to be the most comfortable option. They have areas cut out to fit around the wheel wells. Of course, if it's just you, you can always opt for foam or a smaller air mattress that fits in between the wheel wells.
What are your thoughts? Do you use your truck for camping? And do you have any clever tips? Let us know in the comments below!
