Bed Tent FTW

I recieved this last friday from Lazler. I was supposed to take it to the OBX meet, but it didnt come in time :( [not his fault, the canadian post messed up the address] Im buying it from him providing i like it...I freaking love it!!! So Laz, consider it sold...lol. My brother and I set it up yestersay evening to see how hard/easy it was. For the very first time assembling it, not so bad. I didnt have it perfect the first time, so i undid everything and started over and it turned out perfect (I think). hardes part was finding a good mounting place on the frame for the straps. Im going to buy the special air matress that fits around the wheel wells for it and take it camping soon hopefully to a lake or river!

he wasnt selling...lol. i knew he had one, I wanted to borrow it for the OBX trip. So i paid shipping to get it down here, he told me had had just bought another tent or camper of something and that he would probably just sell it to me..

funny how things work out!

Looks great, I've thought about getting one of those. I think I would rather have a mattress that fit in between the wheel wells so you have the four spots to put your stuff in.

Looks good man.. I just made a really legit one for about 30 bucks, although it isn't fully enclosed like that of course, bugs could come up from under and fly in if they wanted. Made it for going to mx nationals and camping. Made a pvc frame that is pretty identical to the shape of most caps, just a little taller. then a tarp that is bungie corded over. Nice because it goes over the top of my cab so I can get through the rear slider. goes up and down in about 5 minutes. Inside of my phone broke and no camera, so no pics for now (but you get the idea).
