How Do You Measure a Truck Bed for a Tent?

If you’re a camping enthusiast, you know how important it is to have the right size tent for your truck bed. But how do you measure your truck bed for a tent? It’s not as complicated as it may seem. Here are the steps you should take to accurately measure your truck bed for the perfect tent fit.

1. Measure the Length of Your Truck Bed:

The first step to measuring your truck bed is to measure the full length of the bed from tailgate to cab wall (or bumper).

Make sure to include any protrusions, such as wheel wells or side boxes, in this measurement. Record this number and keep it handy.

2. Measure the Width of Your Truck Bed:

The next step is to measure the width of your truck bed from side-to-side. Again, make sure to include any protrusions in this measurement, and record this number.

3. Measure the Height of Your Truck Bed:

The last step is to measure the height of your truck bed from floor to top rail or cap. This will help you determine which style and size of tent will best fit your needs.

Measuring a truck bed for a tent involves taking three measurements – length, width, and height – and recording them all down so that you can make an informed decision when choosing a tent that fits perfectly into your truck bed. With these steps, finding a great fitting tent for your vehicle will be simple and stress-free!
