    Hello,

    We love to camp when we ride our dirtbikes and I had a Chevy Silverado before with a truck tent and the double air mattress fit perfectly.

    So, campers...will my old truck tent fit my new 2011 AC Taco? Also, what's the optimal size air mattress that'll fit? I'm thinking the double will be too big for the smaller size bed.

    Eileen,

    These are not inexpensive but you may be interested in knowing about them regardless.

    Hope you have fun camping with your Tacoma.

    the silverado's width between wheel wells is 50.6"
    Tacoma's width between wheel wells is 56.7"

    seems kinda strange being the silverado is a full size.


    can someone verify this? I got the specs from Chevy.com and Toyota.com
