Car camping in the woods is easier than strapping on a backpack to reach your perfect spot, but it still takes effort. Hauling gear from the car to the tent is an ordeal, especially if the weather isn’t cooperating and you just want to start having fun.
If you’ve had enough of this scenario, then maybe you should think about trading in your old freestanding tent for a pop-up truck and car camping tent.
This truck and car camping tent gets you off the ground.
At the SEMA trade show, a Canadian company called Napier Outdoors introduced their new Sportz Link truck and car camping tent accessory that quickly adds additional space to all of the company’s existing truck and car camping tents.
Attach two tents to stay warm and dry.
What makes the Sportz Link so cool is that now you can sleep four more campers or just have more room to hang out, cook or store your gear.
The Sportz Link is an 8′ x 8′ ground tent with an attachment sleeve that connects it to a Napier truck and car camping tent tent.
Seamless design keeps rain and moisture out of living quarters.
Sportz Link Highlights:
- Sleeps four more campers, in addition to two in the above-ground truck tent.
- 1 large door and 3 mesh windows for breathability
- Can be used with or without included rain fly
- Waterproof, seamless and tough floor
- Color-coded pole and sleeve assembly for fast set up
- Includes lightweight carrying bag for storing

Truck and car camping tents are a step up from on-the-ground camping. They’re more comfortable than just throwing a mattress in the back of your truck or SUV, especially because most truck and car camping tent products have a sewn in floor that keeps you warm and dry, a rain fly for weather protection and even an awning for shade and extra living space.
Napier Outdoors’ tents, for example, each have a gear pocket, loft and lantern holder to keep things tidy. Plus, their mattress is custom sized to fit between the wheel wells of most pickup truck beds.
The Sportz Link will be available in early 2016, but in the meantime you can start your truck and car camping tent adventures with any of the 10 Napier truck and car camping tents that transform trucks, SUVs, minivan and hatchback vehicles into your perfect, effortless base camp.
While not the Sportz Link, here’s a video of how a truck tent can improve your camping trip:
