I have done this a few times. But not quite with the plush tents & mattresses that are available now.
A lot of the options in this post include mattresses, canopies & awnings. It just depends on which deal you choose.
Happy shopping everyone!
Check out the new options for camping in your vehicle.
Vehicle Camping – Roughing It!
When I had my Ford 1/2 tone pick up truck with the campershell, I did put a full mattress in back & slept there when I went camping. It was comfortable enough but there wasn’t great air circulation so getting up early was necessary.
When I owned my Jeep Cherokee I folded the back seats down & used an air mattress to use this as a tent & sleep in it. The same problem was the lack of air circulation inside the vehicle so getting up early was necessary.
I’m sure this is still done by some people but there are other alternatives today! Let check them out!
Truck Tents – The First New Option!
This is an amazing way to go camping! The tent is packed up in the back of your truck until you reach your destination. The destination can be anywhere you can park your truck! No campsite or campgrounds necessary!
Upon arrival, unpack the back of your truck, inflate the air mattress that is specifically made for a truck bed, make your bed & then set up the pop up tent that fits the back of your truck bed cause it was built for it!
All the comforts of tent camping & you don’t have to sleep on the ground. Packing up is a breeze and you can even buy an awning or canopy to go with this set up!
SUV Tents – The Second Option!
Now since not everyone owns a pick up truck, all the SUV owners have camping options also! You have two options actually.
First, you can get a tent that will sit on the ground, however, it attaches to the back of your vehicle to give you a tent inside the vehicle with an etended tent outside the vehicle. You will put your air mattress inside to sleep & have an extra room to store clothes, change clothes in & even have a seating area inside your tent.
Second, if you would rather be off the ground further, you can have a rooftop tent that goes on top of your vehicle! There are awnings & camopies that can be added for the outside to give you shade to make a sitting area.
Either option is fantastic & it’s totally a personal choice.
Car Tents – The Third Option!
No we didn’t leave out the automobile owners. It will make it easier if you have a hatchback, station wagon type vehicle but you can actually find air mattresses that fit the backseat of your car to comfortably sleep. There are options to attach a tent or a the very least a screened annex to your vehicle to give much needed air flow without being eaten alive by bugs!
I wasn’t really sure in what category to put the tents for Mini Vans but these are also available!! These are like the car tents & they attach to side sliding side door of you van! This is a great idea since Mini Vans are roomier that a car!
There are a lot of options to choose from with these types of tents. Most of the tents that fit in the SUV category can be used here including the rooftops tents!
No matter what type of vehicle you own, there is a tent option availabel for you!
The best part of these options is they all pack up & are easily stored either insde or on top of the vehicl.e.
You also don’t need a campsite or campgrounds to go camping. Anywhere you can park legally you can camp!! This gives you a whole new world of camping options and outdoor adventures!!!
It seems that camping is in a new trend and the future is wide open to fun and adventure for anyone wanting to get outdoors & enjoy their environment!!!
