Truck Accessories For Camping

by George Mason

If you enjoy spending a lot of time in the great outdoors, then custom truck parts to help turn your rig into an outdoor boss can help increase your enjoyment. The following guide will introduce you to a few helpful additions that you may want to get before the next time you head out to the woods.

Custom Pop-Up

No need to invest in a cumbersome topper or truck bed camper. There are now custom tents that are made to fit the bed of your truck. These tents are attached via the tie-downs built into the truck bed, and they are sized to fit your truck perfectly with no water leaks. They resemble a standard tent in many respects, complete with rain fly and bug-proof windows. The easy access door is at the tailgate-end of the bed.

Bed mattresses

A truck bed mattress further adds comfort to the setup. These are crafted so that there are pockets that rest over the wheel well, this way you can enjoy maximum width for the bed. Most fill with an easy to use pump, which may even be wired to work with your truck's accessory plug or cigarette lighter. As an added benefit, most of the pumps also deflate the mattress so you can stow it away quickly when you are ready to haul your gear home.

Space Saving Platforms

Another option is to get a truck bed platform. This platform is designed to slide in over the wheel humps in the bed. It then has drop down supports that make it quite sturdy. In a camping situation, you can spread a regular air mattress on top of the platform and stow your gear beneath. Most are made out of heavy-duty plastics and they are designed to fold up for easy storage when not in use.

Trailer Hitch Chairs

Another camping staple is somewhere comfortable to sit and while away some relaxing hours. There are hitch-mounted options available that are sure to bring you comfort. Hammock chairs are increasing in popularity, and it's possible to buy an accessory that hooks into your hitch so you can hang a hammock chair. You can even get hitch-mounted supports for actual hammocks, which makes it easy to sleep out beneath the stars if you feel inclined.
