    I’ve got that same tent minus the little awning. It’s pretty good, easy to set up, holds up really well in bad weather.

    The Guide Gear one is pretty good. Tons of room and under $100 on Amazon.

    I have one like that too, but it was an Amazon one, can't remember the name. It does setup quickly and seems to hold up. My wife hates it because she has to climb up onto the tailgate to get in, so we usually use our ground tent when she comes along.

    I think you have to completely empty your truck bed before you can set it up. This seems like a lot of extra work.

    Yes you do. Not bad because everything you bring should be useful and pulled out to use or you shouldn’t have brought it.

    I bring guns, fishing gear, ice chests, shovels, and lots of stuff I use and don’t want to unload it just to set up a tent

    Nope. Nothing beats a stand alone tent.

    Plus you'd have to remove all your gear, wood, axes, fishing gear and anything else you are hauling.

    If your in Canada pick up an MEC tent. In the US, grab an REI. Both make fantastic tents for the price. We use both currently.

    I always liked the way those tents looked. But what I can’t stand is the straps rub the side of the bed. Add to that, most likely your truck is filthy before doing so. I can’t imagine the paint coming out unscathed.
