    Hey all,
    I'm wondering if you could provide me with suggestions other than a soft topper or similar canopy, or a sportz style tent [with straps down the sides] that I can use for camping in the back of my Tacoma. Any / all suggestions will be appreciated. Thank you.

    just a couple comfort items.
    I saw this on the freeway the other day. Pretty easy on and off and not too heavy,Those mounts are easily available too. Kind of pricey but a nice setup.

    I use a bestop and it has seemed to be the best way to camp. I camp almost every weekend so I like the versatility of the soft top over a hard top. A few of my buddies use a tarp over there bed and bungee corded under the truck. One of my buddies uses a huge like 50x50 tarp in the trees and backs his truck under it.

    Hi top shell, build a little frame/deck over your wheelwells so you can sleep the full width and put your gear underneath. Easiest car camping I've ever done.

    I just got a slide-in pop-up camper (similar to the picture that Grammy posted). Added airbags.
    Just in the process of getting the tie-downs done. In the front I'm using frame mounts. In the rear I haven't figured that out yet. I think the bumper is too flimsy for bumper buttons.

    I'm interested to see what gets posted on this thread. I'm wanting to get into the truck camping as well; I think it will be a good way to get outdoors with my girlfriend.
