    Gonna be building a custom tent rack out of a construction rack i had laying around. Then ill be able to fit a 8x8 tent and still have full bed space underneath with an awning on the side. First i just need funds to buy tube and plywood...im pretty excited to get started to say the least!

    All I have is a ground tent so I'm pretty jealous of these setups.

    No more sleeping in the bed of my truck for me. can anyone suggest a good 3 person tent that collapses into a small manageable size?

    Well, it depends on how you define "3 person". Tents always way over estimate how many people can fit.

    I have a Marmont Limelight 3 that I got for about $140 at REI. It's a 3 man but fits 2 comfortably.

    It's extremely easy to set up and very nice all around.
    REI tents are nice too.

    I concur, I have a 3 man tent that serves me well, but do like the set-up for the bed of the Taco. Debating on one of these or just get a collapsible shell and a my airbed should fit in the back. I guess I should pull it out and check. For now the tent will do.

    more for me and the Girlfriend, and just in case if we have the dog with us (90 lb German Shepherd)

    That does look like a pretty nice tent Nathan

    Nathan's tent is similar to mine in design. Very comfortable for 2 people and gear. The dog might make it a little cramped. I have 2, 70 lbs Black Labs don't see having both in the tent with me. Maybe one. And if that German Shepard is anything like my Labs when they want out when your sleeping they will claw their way out. :whistling2:

    This is how Mohawk Mike sets up his tent...in the 50mph wind.

    I just have a 80 to 10 man(at least thats what it says) ground tint, works nice, have had 2 army cots and 2 air beds and 6 people in it comfortably. if you had just sleeping pads you could probably get 8 comfortably with a little big of gear in side. also it has like a little porch thing. it’s nice you can step out side and put shoes on and not get feet dirty or take shoes off. i don’t have any pic of it.

    I'm gonna be building off of this to eventually fit an 8x8' RTT. This way I'll be able to stow mountain bikes and gear underneath still and my toolbox can still stay in along with my roof lights! It will have an awning that folds out on the driver side to double the size of the platform on top and will be covered with 1/2 plywood. Whether or not I need treated wood I'm not sure of yet. I'm probably going to use 1" .083 wall square tubing for the addition.
