I'm so smrt!

26 posts in this topic

Yeah so, I'm on vacation this week. I leave to go camping tomorrow and I bought a new tent that sets up in the truck bed. It got here fast, I ordered it Friday and it came on Saturday. So I put the truck in the backyard, took off the tonneau and did a test set-up. All the hype on the box said "20 minute setup!" Yahright. An hour later and I finally got the thing erected. The tent is made by a Canadian manufacturer, so the instructions were written in English... with a French accent. Oui? Non. :rolleyes:

Anyway... ha, I hope to look less like a retodd tomorrow at the campground setting this thing up.

I thought you might. Here it is with the rainFly attached, it has two nice side windows and a canopy out the back you can set up on poles.

Very cool....what do you plan to put down on the bed so you don't feel the rides or whatever the bed's steel has stamped into it.

Custom-S: Lord. :AH-HA_wink:

Delta, I have a BedRug bedliner in the truck, foam-backed with an indoor-outdoor carpet type surface, so it's fine. Plus I have an air mattress to stick in there if I need it.

if I weren't selling the Avalanche, I'd buy it's version of this.

still, I get away with just leaving the tonnue covers on and sleep on an airmatress with my head in the cab.

I think you voided your GM warranty, it expressly states, no blue and tan igloos unless you're in Canada and only in the Northwest Territories at that. Otherwise a phoo phoo French guy from GM Du Canada will beat you with half a loaf of French bread, until you're back in your driveway safe and sound. :smilewide:

Aren't you supposed to seek medical help if your tent last more than 4 hours? I've seen those commercials. :AH-HA_wink:

Well, made it home. Work tomorrow. <_<

Had a lot of compliments and questions about my camping rig, truck and tent.

I got the tent up, sprayed with silicone seam sealer and covered with the rain fly with just a bit of time to spare, it did rain Thursday afternoon/evening, and was cool in the Poconos Mountains each night. Sunny and nice the rest of the time. It was good being off the ground.
