Review & Install Video
Hey, I'm Alex, from americanmuscle.com, and this is my quick review and breakdown of the Rightline Gear Full Size Truck Tent, fitting the F-150 with 6.5-foot bed. So in this video, I'm gonna talk about the construction and materials of this tent, what you should expect to be spending, who this might appeal to, and then we're gonna hit the installation a little bit later on. But right off the bat, I'm gonna be giving this a very easy one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, and you should have this tent pitched in about 10 to 15 minutes tops.
So if you're the truck owner that spends just as much time outdoors as you do in your truck, and you're looking to get into a little bit of truck camping, I would definitely suggest picking up this kit, as you're not only gonna have the ability to fit two people safely and comfortably, along with a bunch of extra gear, and even a couple dogs.
So one of the things I definitely like right off the bat about this three-season, two-person tent is the fact that you are going to be up and off the ground and staying dry throughout any type of weather. But I definitely might suggest using the supplied rain fly, as well as picking up an inflatable mattress or a couple camping mats, as sleeping in the back of your truck can definitely be a little bit on the uncomfortable side.
So taking a quick look at the materials here, we're gonna see that this fire-resistant and UV-protected, breathable material, that's not only gonna waterproof, is gonna primarily made up of a polyester-type material that's also going to feature taped seams, so you can ensure that you're going to be staying dry during your camping trip.
So another cool feature about this tent is the fact that this is going to be floorless. Now, when I say floorless, I mean that you're not gonna have a heavy-duty layer that you're going to be sleeping on. This is essentially going to attach underneath and to the sides of your bed rails, so that you don't have to pull this on or off when pulling out any type of gear. So again, that essentially means that you're gonna have the ability to get in the back of your truck without even having to take this down.
So we're gonna see that the set-up here, that we'll get into just a little bit later, is going to be incredibly easy as you're gonna have color-coded poles right here, as well as having the instructions built right into the bag, just like most, if not all their tents, out there.
So for the fit and finish, and quality materials here, and having the ability to camp in damn-near three seasons, as well as having a very easy install, which we're gonna hit on very shortly, I would not hesitate picking this up for my own truck, just even to get away for the weekend or do a little bit of hunting or fishing.
So the easy install here is definitely gonna be a huge selling point for me, as this is essentially as easy to pitch as any type of standard tent, but for the fact that you're not gonna have to bolt in anything in order to secure this. This is merely as easy as laying the tent out in your bed, attaching it underneath, and then pitching it with your poles, and then that's it.
So that's my review and breakdown of the Rightline Gear Full Size Truck Tent, fitting the 6.5-foot bed F-150, available right here on americanmuscle.com.
68D polyester lining, polypropylene straps, and shock-corded fiberglass poles make the Rightline Gear Truck Tent a sturdy yet lightweight structure. Protective heavy duty straps and plastic buckles won't damage your truck's finish. The design is highly water resistant thanks to special attention from the designer. Comfortable.
Water-resistant fabric with tape sealed seams keep you dry, and you can look through the sky view vent and star gaze. Two gear pockets give you ample storage space, and leaves plenty of room for two adults. A lantern hook lets you have a light without risk of knocking it over, and glow-in-the-dark zipper pulls help you find your way in and out even at night. Installation.
Set up and take down the Rightline Gear Truck Tent without removing gear from the bed, and the floorless design keeps the tent clean from truck bed dirt. There's no need for the tent to touch the ground, and the poles and pole pockets are color coated for quick and easy setup. Application.
