Kodiak Canvas Tent – Easy Setup

This is an excellent tent and I do not believe there are any other truck tents quite as good for strength and durability as is found in a canvas tent. I am a believer in canvas having spent a career in the military and have spent a lot of time in tents and having lived in a canvas tent for as long as one year at the time. Military tents are of course heavier but canvas make great tents for longer life and structurally more sound. Let me be clear about the setup. I agree with the many reviews that state the difficulty of trying to set the tent up using only one person. I am both a hunter, fisherman and an avid RVer. I am retired and I purchased this tent to be used primarily in the late fall and winter months when weather permitting here in Maryland. I plan to use primarily for one or two overnighters when hunting or fishing at that time of the year. While my spouse loves RVing and fishing in summer and early fall during the colder months I am away by myself. Therefore, the need to be able to set the tent up without help. I have now set the tent up by myself for a total of 6 times. I must admit that the first four times were extremely difficult because as soon as I would get the poles mounted on top of the hooks or pins on the rail and then try and place the tent across them they would start falling over and it was simply a nightmare. The first time it took me perhaps an hour and a half and the following 3 times at least an hour. It was just a plain hassle to get the tent aligned and stable on the poles without a second pair of hands. So I agree with the many reviews that say it is extremely difficult for one person, not that it cannot be done but it is difficult and takes a lot of time. I have now solved this fundamental problem with the setup and the 5th and 6th time it was possible to set the tent up completely in just over 20 minutes without rush. I believe the problem for one person lies in stabilizing the primary three rail poles across the truck for the tent and for this reason I decided to use two pressure treated 2×4’s and drill three 1/2″ diameter holes in each 2×4 to be able to insert the poles. I mounted a 1 1/2″ PVC pipe across the length of each of the treated 2×4″s for extra stability. In the PVC pipe I drilled a 3/4″ hole in line with 1/2″ hole in the 2×4. The reason the hole in the PVC is larger is because the pole begins to curve as it come up and across the truck bed. This make a very rigid structure on which you can simply place the tent across and not have the poles falling over or coming loose and scratching the truck finish or causing a tear in the canvas. I simply place tent across the three primary poles, line it up, hop down from the truck bed, raise the tailgate and insert the tent around the tailgate, insert the truck cab canopy rail in place, insert the tailgate canopy rail across the tailgate, tighten the straps around the truck and I am done. This works very well because the primary poles have been stabilized and allows an easy setup. This can be easily set up in very low light such as what you have during late evening when coming back from a day of fishing, hunting or anything else. The bottom line is it requires only one person and no hassle. As you can see from the photos I did use the metal rail and bolted to the top of the 2×4 because I have them and they eliminate having to dent the 2×4 but this is not necessary. It just that over time you would have a lot of dents in the 2×4 from each set up. Mounting the C-clamps on the metal surface eliminates this from happening. Forgot to mention I replaced the C-clamps that came with tent to larger ones which are 3″ which are necessary because of the 2×4 used as rails. A word about weather. Here in Maryland we have had rain and intermittent rain for some two weeks during the latter part of December so the 6th time I put the tent up it stayed up for two days in the rain. It does not leak. I am truly impressed with quality and with the long bed truck you have the equivalent of ten feet of space which makes it more than ample for at least two people. A final word is the new modified railing is still one piece because the 2×4, PVC pipe and the metal rail are all bolted together making them always ready to set up. There are probably other ideas about how to make it a one person set up but this does work well and makes the process simple. The tent fabric is very strong and appears to be well stitched for pulling around the poles and especially for the cab and tailgate canopies. I am impressed.

I like it, I think I am going to enjoy it a lot- but it takes a little practice to set it up solo.

First off- I’m putting this on a 2014 Dodge 1500 with the 6’4″ box.

Test run was great

Wanted to send this review in before our upcoming summer camping trips. I fitted this tent to my ’98 Dodge Ram 1500 short bed (6’4″ish long). There is a bit of a learning curve at first til you understand the instructions terminology. I assembled it on a windy and cold Sacramento day and once up I climbed inside with the kids. We were warm after a few minutes of hanging out (and hot funky kid breath) and the wind was kept out almost completely. The only thing I could see may be a concern is near the cab at the front of the bed. The tent tended to “bunch up” a bit possibly because of my length of truck bed. Had it been slightly longer, the length of the bed may have pulled the tent tighter. Some wind curled up and under the tent and we could feel a draft. I’ll probably stuff some towels in the area or put it up again and play with it. It actually rained later in the evening and the interior was completely dry. No regrets so at this point. Will update again in July after a couple of camping trips.

BEWARE! People will ask about your tent!

The tent is incredibly easy to use. We absolutely love the tent. However, everywhere we have it set up, people are constantly asking about it. We have had many people take pictures. I’ve even given a few tours to people asking for details. It is awesome to have. We have a toolbox at the front of the bed and have a full size air mattress that fits perfectly between the wheel wells. We stay perfectly comfortable inside. We have yet to get rained on. When that finally happens, I’ll add those details to my review.

Awesome product on my 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 short bed

Excellent product. I decided on the Kodiak Canvas Truck Bed Tent specifically because it does not have a floor. After reading a bunch of reviews I was a little skeptic about the setup of the tent. However it is straight forward and easy to setup. It took about 30 minutes for us (my girlfriend & myself) we enjoy being outdoors so setting up tents are usually very easy. I can tell you that this product was no different. There are videos on youtube so check those out if you have any doubts or need help.

60 min set up, by myself 1st time

Here it is on Dodge Ram 1500 suicide doors. It took my a little over 60 min to assemble by myself for the first time today. 4 stars, 1. For look, 2. For perfect fit, 3. For being able to assemble by myself and 4. for getting a “used” tent off Amazon it came looking brand new. I did not give 5 star because directions are crap. I was honestly stuck on first pole on how or what to do a good 5-10 min and the damn awnings about the same amount of time.

I was super excited to take this thing out of the box …

I was super excited to take this thing out of the box when it got delivered! I had to go to a local hardware store to get larger clamps though because I have a roll-up bed cover and the clamps that come with the tent were not going to fit over the railings for it. Easy fix. I followed the instructions (and advice of another reviewer) and did a test run of setting it up at my house. Definitely a good idea. I discovered how quickly and easily the tent is set up and because I had already done it the one time, it was even quicker and easier since I knew what I was doing when I took it camping at Denali National Park. It’s very sturdy and can be set up by just one person, although when I took it camping, there were two of us. It is definitely good quality and I expect it to be around for a long time and plan to take it on many adventures. I also got quite a few compliments on it from other campers. I do agree with other reviewers that I may want to replace the velcro straps that hold the main support poles in place at some point, but they did fine so far. One thing that wasn’t mentioned in the product specs or any reviews that I saw, was that there is a loop at the top center inside which is perfect for hanging a lantern. I think this is a very worthwhile purchase.

Nice tent on my 98 F-150

Tent fits nicely on my ’98 F150 after fiddling around with the straps and placement a bit. Goes up and down easier than I expected from some of the comments. I did have someone walk over at the campground while I was still trying to put it up… Inside I fit 2 Teton cots and there’s room to store gear still. It’s our “poor man’s camper.”

Dry Inside!

We’ve used this on two camping trips since purchasing it in January. One trip was a quick one night, up and back affair, and the other was a four day trip to the White Mountains in Arizona. Incidentally, we use it on a 2011 short bed Ford F150.

This is a great tent, very heavy duty

This is a great tent, very heavy duty. We have used it 2 times and it gets easier to set up each time, has been put up 2 times for practice runs to begin with. Only thing wrong, 1 of the main poles bent in half the first time I set up, I was able to fix with gear clamp and some electrical tape to keep from tearing tent. You will most certainly need 2 people to make for easy set up. My truck has 12″ suspension lift and a 4″ body lift so truck bed is 4′ off ground and we are not worried about snakes or any other criders to get in the bed. We have queen size super size air bed that fits perfect between wheel wells and a cieling f an on the top and open the windows and have awsome breeze! We highly recomend this tent it is well worth the $$$$. Happy Camping to all!
