Four Tips for Truck Bed Camping
During the peak of hunting season, you’ll probably feel like you’re living out of your truck. Of course, if you have a weatherproof topper on your ride, you really can live in the truck.
Truck bed camping, while not as glamorous as a Rocky Mountain tent camp or as comfortable as an RV, allows you to go where the game lives and to stay there on the cheap – and, in some cases, to beat the competition to the best spots.
Some folks take truck bed camping to the extreme with full electrical hookups, air-conditioning (that’s right) and elaborate bedding systems. Others throw down a bedroll and rough it. However advanced you might want to make your stay in the back of the truck, you can’t overcome the fact that you’re combining living space with space normally dedicated to hauling around dirty gear and dead stuff.
