Truck Tent

My F250 CC short bed should be here soon and I want to get a tent for the bed. What's the best option out there?

Thanks,
Eric

Napier is a good one (we dont carry them), but I know someone that loves them. I think you can get them at Cabelas.

I take two sticks and shove them in the rear bed tie down holes. then I drape a tarp over the whole truck slaming the sides in the doors to keep it from falling off the truck... I camped for 4 days in pouring rain like this and never got wet once. the pickup beds kinda hard to sleep on tho... ima get an air matress next time.

i was thinkin about buying a bed tent, i have a tool box and roll up bed cover in my bed so i'm not sure one will fit. the last 4-5 times i have gone to the beach or anywhere i have had to camp out me and the g/f just blow up the bed mats lay down in the bed with some blankets and star gaze till we fall asleep, but a tent in the bed would be nice. lol.
