    I know this is like 2 years after your post but I have a 20+ year old roll-a-cot. These things are perfect for truck camping. Actually camping in general, but perfect for a Long Bed tacoma.

    a little here, a little there
    Depending on where in Canada your wanting to go, I'm assuming Ontario since you mentioned Michigan, Algonquin Park has to be on your "to visit" list. Beautiful area, lots of wildlife

    got it!!!

    Haven't been to Canada for about 8 years, but spent almost every summer in the 70's, 80's and 90's at my families cabin up near Sudbury

    When COVIDs is over, will be making trips up there again

    I've been searching searching searching....for a tent that works on a low profile bed build and has an annex that might actually work, and isn't too small or hang way out over the bumper. Matmo, your tent mounting profile is similar to what I'll be doing with front runner racks on a Diamondback. So thanks for reminding me to look at 23Zero's again!! Not trying to rub salt, but seems the Walkabout 62" is not only the size I've been seeking but also has a short annex available. Suhweet! Is there any reason you did not go with a 62" for your build?

    I don’t need the space, my 56 is plenty big for me and my dog or one other person. If my friends come with they’re in ground tents anyways. Plus the 62 sticks out a few inches over the back of a shortbed.

    Thanks for the perspective, Matmo! Yeah, the 56" would be big enough for me (6') and my long-legged English, but seemed it might be a bit crampy whenever there's two and 2-3 dogs. :) I'm a nube in the RTT space so haven't eyed RTTs in real life. I figured since the short bed is 60.5" (not counting rails), the 62" RRT might just hang to mid tailgate width and still leave operable space behind cab. May be worth it for the short annex. :cool:

    If I pull the trigger, I'll post a pic.

    My dog is an Akita, weighing about 120lbs. With my girlfriend in the tent with me, the three of us fit comfortably. You would have to really like 3 people to be able to sleep comfortably in the 56. I do love my 23Zero and I’ve had no complaints whatsoever. One thing to keep in mind, you need at least 3” of space between the cab and the tent to be able to get to the zipper and tuck away the material when closing it.

    I went out Thursday night to try and test out a Chinese diesel heater. My puppies got to play in the snow too, haha. But the heater wouldn't stay running and trying to troubleshoot in 20 something degrees isn't fun. So our trip was cut short. When it was running, my tent was comfortable. Had my shoes off and I was laying on top of my sleeping bag. I'll definitely being trying again after some tinkering or replacing.

    How are you running the fuel line into the Rotopax? Thats the one thing I still need to do for mine is get a good fuel system setup going so I dont have to mess around with that every time I set it up

    I actually wasn't. The Rotopax was just in case I needed more diesel. The heater is an all in one, so it has a 1 gallon tank onboard.

    I wathced a outube review of one of these heaters about 1-2 weeks ago. Review was not good. Person did same as you and shut it down because they could not get it to work right. I believe they were getting fumes in the RTT.

    I had a carbon monoxide detector in my tent. Never beeped once. My problem was that it wouldn't stay running. Even tried messing with it at home and got the same issue. I ordered a replacement so I'll try again in a week or two.

    Caught the camping bug 2 years ago when I camped out under the wing of my Cessna one night.

    Thinking about getting one of these/something similar for starters, for some local 1-2 night overland trips in the next couple of months. I'm not a fan of heights when it comes to ladders, etc, so getting an RTT setup is not high on my list.

    AmazonSmile : Napier Backroadz Truck Tent : Sports & Outdoors

    Anyone have any experience/opinions? One downside I see is it ties up the tailgate, so getting a small table or two for a camp stove & such is going to be a must.

    I love mine. We have a 70lb pittie we camp with, and the bf and I didn't want to carry him up and down the ladder. Also makes it easier taking the pup out in the morning to go do his business.

    The tent takes all of 15mins to put up. Its fairly warm inside since we are closed in however we aren't sooo packed in it makes it uncomfortable.

    This picture below was taken before we found and bought an extension (sorta like an annex). We are hoping on our upcoming trip it'll make things easier such as changing, storing our clothes, etc.

    Edit: here is the extension from Amazon photos.
