I want one of those bed tents that Nissan sells for our trucks. I'm not really sure what they are worth and whatnot but if one of you has one that you are looking to get rid of, let me know.

You could always buy one brand new for about $200.00.

Nissan Bed Tent

Not sure what they would be used. It also has a awning that you can't see.

When I bought the tent for my 07, they sold a pad for the truck with wheel wheel cut outs. We use a moving pad in bed under tent and those camping self inflating pads. It has a Rainfly just like a good camping tent, sreens and zipped windows and door, stash pockets. The awning will long tent pole to ground or you can run the poles to rings on tent at tailgate. The genuine Nissan Tent was very well made in 07, can't say about new ones, nice small bag when stowed. All the fiberglass poles are color code.

Sounds good. I'll have to check Ebay to see if I can find one there

Oh yeah. I had another question. I have a Crew Cab with the long bed. I assume I'd be looking for a King Cab bed tent?

I had another question for you guys. I have a roll-n-lock cover on my bed. Do you think it would greatly interfere with the bed tent?

Would you let me know what size of bed your truck is? I've been wanting to get one for my CC shortbed, but I don't know if it's too small. Pictures would be great.

Thanks,

Long bed only

Although I think they make a Crew Cab, it would be too short. Don't have pic's, but they have them on Nissan parts sites. Just lay in your bed and leave the tail gate up, thats what you'll have, with a high crouch down the center head clearance. I'm 5'11" and had no problem.

Probably not, the tent is flexible. That tent from the Nismo shop also has a big awning that come with it too, so a shaded area you could put a lawn chair by your tailgate and chill... I think its worth the 200, let us know what you find on Ebay though! A guy and his lady friend on this site used it in Texas for a few days, rained the whole time, and no issues, so it seems to be good quality.

I have a twin sized air mattress that fit perfectly in the bed of my '98 extended cab. Now that I have a toolbox it still works but I have to put the tailgate down. I just wedged a large tarp in the bumper and stretched it to the roof and closes the doors on it and that kept the moisture off of me, although I think you want something a little more legit haha.
