Whaaaaat?!? This is a thing offered from Chevy?!



Anyone tried this guy out or know who makes it for them? For $270, I can get a whole lot of tent from REI.

Have one for my Silverado.
Pro: well designed and fits well. Gets you off the ground. Many aftermarket inflatable mattresses will fit inside, some with wheel well cutouts.
Con: more difficult to assemble and attach than a regular ground tent. pricey. cannot use your truck with this erected.
Overall: I think it is worth the extra dollars and time to be elevated and comfortable. My daughter uses every year at a music festival and loves it.

How well do these work if you have a tonneau cover installed? Does it work with the rails and cover rolled up or would you have to remove it?

I suspect (but cannot be sure) that this tent would work fine with a soft, roll up cover.

I know this may be a long dead thread, but I just got one of these and use it on my 2016 Z71 Trail Boss DuraMax. It's great. I posted about it over on the coloradofans forum: http://coloradofans.com/forums/#/topics/360018

I'm building a rack right now so top of RTT is flush with the cab. They catch a ton of wind if above, but of course if you have a canopy its gotta go on top.
That truck just keeps getting better looking all the time Atomizer!

Right on man. Hope you post some photos of your build. I’ll be looking for a rack like that in the future. Keep the camper shell setup for certain things and a lower rack with the RTT for others.
We are headed to Baja in 2weeks and ya the mileage will suck with the tent on campershell but everything will be a bit more secure for leaving the truck alone.
Installing the 36 gallon gas tank next week, that will help with suspect diesel.....

I like your set-up. I wish I could get the wife to go that route. She says "that's why we bought a diesel, so we can tow a trailer, right?? At least that's what you told me!!" I cut my own throat sometimes! Again-VERY nice ride! MADMAC:D
