I am not a fan. The tent looks like it was built by the lowest bidder.

My plan there is to put a 20 gallon water tank (https://a.co/d/iTMoWGb) in the bed under the tent along with a 2.5 gallon electric hot water heater (https://a.co/d/dCfCzB2). For shower and toilet, I am looking at a 2 room pop-up shower tent (https://a.co/d/73BRIId) that I can shower in one room and put a cassette toilet in the other (https://a.co/d/9bKvIKI).

I still need to take measurements on the water tank and may end up with something larger or smaller depending on what fits, but that's the general concept I am working with right now.

I picked up a Basecamp tent yesterday and got around to installing it in the truck today. My wife was kind enough to work a camera while I go through the process of unboxing the tent, installing it, setting it up, a look inside, and packing it back up.

The thumb screws I mention for the aeroflap were purchased from Amazon: https://a.co/d/c2Dk9kt

Thanks for the thorough review and details. Your post and a couple others convinced me the Cybertent is the camping solution to go with. I ordered a few weeks back and the installation has been delayed twice awaiting parts. I was hoping to have it this weekend so I could begin to equip myself with further camping gear.

What are the dimensions of the inside floor? Would it fit a queen sized air mattress? Any thoughts on needing additional padding? I’m thinking I’ll need more for my wife to be comfortable.

Thanks in advance for any reply from a current tent owner!

Glad to hear it! We have used our tent a few times now and really enjoy it.

It's possible the parts your installation is waiting on is the updated aeroflap attachment, as I believe they are a separate kit. Depending on how far you are from the service center, you may ask if that's all that's holding it up and if you can have the aeroflap revision installed when those parts come in, if so.

As for the dimensions, I don't have the tent deployed to check it, but it's definitely a little narrower than the truck bed itself. We have slept in it with just the padding that comes with the tent plus a 2" memory foam topper and found it to be okay, but still a little too firm for us. I purchased a 10" full size air mattress off Amazon for our next outing and it's a snug fit and a bit bulky feeling in the tent. While it made for a softer surface, I really don't like sleeping on air mattresses for some reason, so I may go back and look at a 3-4" memory foam topper to see if that's the right solution for us.

I just set our tent up to test out some upgrades and measured the inside width at 53”. Length is about 76”.

I made a mount to attach our starlink dish to the truck when we’re out camping or tailgating and am really happy with how it turned out. Keeps the dish and the wires off the ground and doesn’t interfere with the tent, regardless of orientation.

Love this thread. Bookmarked it for future reference. Thanks so much OP for sharing valuable tips and tent setup. It’ll save me lot of time and energy when I get mine.

Anyone has found a good mattress topper for the tent? An ideal one would roll and fit on top of the folded tent, I think there is enough space and it’s currently unused.

I love this Starlink solution. Would you mind sharing how having mobile Starlink works for you? Do you have it at home too and this is a mobile add on or is this a separate account?

Thanks! We’ve only used it once so far, and that was last weekend on a camping outing. The Starlink worked really well for us. We were partially obstructed by trees, but still had good enough signal that we were getting up to 300 Mbps down. Sometimes it would drop to 10-50Mbps for a bit (likely due to the trees obstructing part of the sky) but it was always enough to keep streaming.

I have the roam service for Starlink, so we can pay for it one month and pause service until we need it again. At home we have fiber to the house, so I don’t need Starlink there. Our main use case for Starlink is camping and tailgating where we often have little to no cellular data service.

The only inconvenience I’ve had with the Starlink so far is every time I’ve set it up either to test it or when we used it for a couple of days camping is it receives frequent updates and I’ve applied them after getting everything set up. It takes a few minutes for it to join the Starlink network, so after setting up, connecting, updating, rebooting, and reconnecting, it can take 10-15 minutes before it’s online, updated, and ready for use. Not a huge problem given the use case, but I wouldn’t portray it as set it up in 30 seconds and it’s done.

Wow, that sounds great. I’m going to have to look into this for camping and tailgating as well. Thank you for the input and happy camping!

We used this setup for our camping trip last weekend and found it to be very comfortable.

Pad: Yuzonc Double Sleeping Pad - Self... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0CZRDFR73?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share

2” memory foam: Planet Sleepings 2 Inch Memory... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0CLRP3ZDR?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share

Mattress topper: Linenspa 2 Inch Mattress Topper... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09JQP2SXH?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share

I haven’t tried leaving this in the tent, and probably wouldn’t want to so it doesn’t get stinky, but the pad packs down extremely small and the memory foam is optional but does make for a smoother sleeping area.

We have slept in the tent with nothing but the pad built into the tent and that was too firm and not overly comfortable for us. We have also tried a 10” air mattress, but that was too much in the tent and really not very comfortable either. The setup we used above we slept on last weekend and it was very comfortable for my wife and me.
