A tent that would work with my Tonneau cover.

    I have a Raider fiberglass tonneau cover on my truck. Recently, I've been considering trying a little expedition type adventure, but I'd need a tent. My first thought is a bed tent. But I have the tonneau. So I've been "Googleing" different tents, and the closest I've come to what I'm interested in is this.

    However, all I can find is the picture. Does anyone have any ideas of where or how to get more information on something like this?

    If you find out, let me know!

    I've been looking for something similar. I think it might be custom.

    I've never seen a tent like the one you have pictured before but it looks pretty neat. The only thing I can think of is putting a track system on the cover and mount a roof top tent of some kind. I don't know anything about tonneau covers and how much weight they can support. I have a RTT mounted on a Thule Xsporter rack. My truck is built more for overland/camping and I spend a lot of my time on various expedition type sites and I've never seen a tent mounted on a tonneau cover before.

    I can't remember where I saw it, but I think that's a custom job.

    He made that himself. I think he was going to start making more. Check out ttora.com I believe he is a member there or customtacos.com. I can't recall his name.

    After hours of chasing links, and reading old threads, I have found out that the tent pictured in the OP, was custom made by the girlfriend of the owner. It was a one off, something that he made a patent for (which I found), but never followed through on, as far as I can tell. There's a dead email link, that was supposed to go to the owner for orders, or info, or something, but that's gone too. Looks like a dead end.
