    Guys,
    I'm looking for a tent to put in my bed. I've got a wife and two little boys so I would like something like the picture displayed, so we all have room to sleep. But I can't find anything to buy. Does anyone know where to find one like this? Or how to make something like this?

    Welcome from CO.

    Brian has one in his build thread. He really likes his. Looks roomy for what it is.

    That looks like a LivinLite Quicksilver popup truck camper, they are no longer built, but used units or old stock could be found.

    From memory the LivinLite Quciksilver TC-2 has plenty of room for your family, too!

    Good luck on your search!

    Yea its not exactly like what you show in your picture in the OP but it is a bed tent. Fits 2 adults on the floor of the bed and you can put stuff on the bedrails for storage. Your feed go out onto the tailgate in the crewmax.
    Looking at what you posted there are two beds, on on each side of the bedrails. The middle is just a walkway.

    They aren't cheap but they make some very large Roof Top Tents:
    https://cascadiatents.com/
    https://tepuitents.com/

    If you are looking for something like this i highly recommend them. They make a 4 person with "annex" which basically gives you room for gear/shoes/etc.

    This ends up giving basically a split level house. Master bedroom upstairs and kids room/playroom downstairs

    I've got one of the Napier ones. Only used it once so far but it was great. Just the wife and me though. Would be real tight w kids.
    Got mine off Amazon.

    nothing much
    Looks like a lot of work, empty the whole bed and make sure it's clean. Set up tents. Then remove in the morning and put all your gear back in the truck.

    Why not just a conventional ground tent or a roof top tent? Both would allow you to leave your gear in the bed.
