A website launched in mid-July 2011 boasts a comprehensive collection of camping tents applicable to a variety of vehicles, including SUVs, minivans, trucks and motorcycles.
“Tents for trucks present a way for people to go camping, and enjoy the luxuries of camping, without having to put out as much money as an RV or a trailer,” said John Peterson, owner of http://www.Tents4Trucks.com, a division of Choose The Right Shopping Online Inc. “People can sleep off the ground and when they’re done they can put the tent away and still have the vehicle to use for other things.”
According to a press release, the Sportz Truck Tent 57890 is a popular model that sets up easily thanks to a color-coded pole and sleeve system. Inside there is over five feet, five inches of headroom, two large mesh windows and ceiling vents, as well as a patented sewn in floor. The various Sportz Truck Tent models fit such vehicles as GMC Sierra, Chevrolet Silverado, Dodge Ram, Ford F Series, Nissan Titan, and Toyota Tundra. Larger tents that work well with SUVs, mini vans, sports wagons and hatchbacks are also available.
For those campers who prefer to travel light or by motorcycle a Sportz PAC fits the bill. The Sportz X-Plorer PAC 95600 comes with a tent, rain fly, sleeping bag and stool. All of the items pack up into one heavy-duty bag that can be thrown on the back of a motorcycle. The Sportz X-Treme PAC 9400 similarly comes with one tent, rain fly, two stools, two sleeping bags and one carrying bag. Air mattresses, screen rooms, extra rain flies and straps, as well as heavy duty carrying bags can also be purchased through the site.
“I have a passion for camping. It’s an economical way to get out into nature,” said Peterson. “I’m looking forward to the potential this can have in terms of supplying people a means of enjoying the outdoors and supplying a good income for my family.”
