Hey, I'm Alex, from americanmuscle.com, and this is my quick review and breakdown of the Rightline Gear Full Size Truck Tent, fitting the F-150 with 6.5-foot bed. So in this video, I'm gonna talk about the construction and materials of this tent, what you should expect to be spending, who this might appeal to, and then we're gonna hit the installation a little bit later on. But right off the bat, I'm gonna be giving this a very easy one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, and you should have this tent pitched in about 10 to 15 minutes tops. So if you're the truck owner that spends just as much time outdoors as you do in your truck, and you're looking to get into a little bit of truck camping, I would definitely suggest picking up this kit, as you're not only gonna have the ability to fit two people safely and comfortably, along with a bunch of extra gear, and even a couple dogs. So one of the things I definitely like right off the bat about this three-season, two-person tent is the fact that you are going to be up and off the ground and staying dry throughout any type of weather. But I definitely might suggest using the supplied rain fly, as well as picking up an inflatable mattress or a couple camping mats, as sleeping in the back of your truck can definitely be a little bit on the uncomfortable side. So taking a quick look at the materials here, we're gonna see that this fire-resistant and UV-protected, breathable material, that's not only gonna waterproof, is gonna primarily made up of a polyester-type material that's also going to feature taped seams, so you can ensure that you're going to be staying dry during your camping trip. So another cool feature about this tent is the fact that this is going to be floorless. Now, when I say floorless, I mean that you're not gonna have a heavy-duty layer that you're going to be sleeping on. This is essentially going to attach underneath and to the sides of your bed rails, so that you don't have to pull this on or off when pulling out any type of gear. So again, that essentially means that you're gonna have the ability to get in the back of your truck without even having to take this down. So we're gonna see that the set-up here, that we'll get into just a little bit later, is going to be incredibly easy as you're gonna have color-coded poles right here, as well as having the instructions built right into the bag, just like most, if not all their tents, out there. So for the fit and finish, and quality materials here, and having the ability to camp in damn-near three seasons, as well as having a very easy install, which we're gonna hit on very shortly, I would not hesitate picking this up for my own truck, just even to get away for the weekend or do a little bit of hunting or fishing. So the easy install here is definitely gonna be a huge selling point for me, as this is essentially as easy to pitch as any type of standard tent, but for the fact that you're not gonna have to bolt in anything in order to secure this. This is merely as easy as laying the tent out in your bed, attaching it underneath, and then pitching it with your poles, and then that's it. So that's my review and breakdown of the Rightline Gear Full Size Truck Tent, fitting the 6.5-foot bed F-150, available right here on americanmuscle.com.

Do you measure the bed with the tailgate up or down? I bought this for my boyfriend for Christmas as a 6.5 ft and I just measured and his is a 5.5 ft bed. will it still work or do I need to exchange it?
The Rightline Gear Full Size Truck Tent will be measured by the size of the bed. We do offer the option for the 5.5ft bed with part number: T529826-C
2001 Ford F150 xcab 6' bed Tonneau Lid on bed (which is heavy to remove - and I want to roll with it for security of equipment in bed) - so, I am curious if I can open the lid inside the tent? Is there enough clearance over the tailgate? I don't need all the headroom this tent offers - but NO ONE seems smart enough to bring a tent to market that fits inside an open Tonneau cover... lots of customs - but c'mon its a big market.
How will this work with a soft teauno cover? Will it fit if I roll up the cover?
The Rightline Gear Full Size Truck Tent will install with most soft tonneau covers once they are folded back.
Is it waterproof?
The Rightline Gear Full Size Truck Tent is not waterproof, but it is water resistant.
Will this fit an 2003 F150 FLARESIDE 6.5 foot bed?
The Rightline Gear Full Size Truck Tent will fit the 2003 F150 flare side with a 6.5' bed.
Hello! Will this fit an 04 f150 96 in bed
The Rightline Gear Truck Tent is designed to fit the 1997-2017 F-150s equip with either a 5.5 foot, 6.5 foot, or 8 foot bed.

Very easy set up. After the first time setting up I was able to set it up in just a few minutes. I have used it three time now and couldn’t be happier. We had some rain one night but stayed dry with the tent. The tent is snug so be careful not to pull it to tight or you may brake some stitches.

Fits a little snug and sits a bit sideways, but all around works great and easy to install!

Set it up on my truck before we went camping. Took me a little bit to figure it out but the second and third time it went together easy. A great product!

Value, Well engineered and Durable.
Truck tent camping. Searched for everything out there...ie..campers, camper vans, you name it. Now, I can tow my bikes and set up my tent over the truck bed and relocate a minimal amount of my gear to the cab for weather resistant overnight camping.
