The Truck (Bakkie) Tent. A Tent Made For The Back Of Your Bakkie.
Calling a bakkie a truck seems a little crazy for us South Africans and talking about a truck tent can give an image in your mind of a truck parked under a huge tent.
A tent specifically made to fit on the back of your bakkie is something quite new and has quite a few advantages over the other types of tents we are familiar with. Obviously limited camping space, rain and uneven and muddy terrain will be less of a worry with a bakkie tent. It is also easier accessible than a rooftop tent.
A wide range of truck (bakkie) tents are available to buy in South Africa through WantitAll or AliExpress and Amazon that can ship internationally including South Africa. Some are made in different sizes to fit different load beds and others are made for specific makes and models of bakkies. The most popular and recommended brand of truck tents is Napier.
Depending on the size, the tent can sleep 2 to 3 persons comfortably. Ideal for a couple’s getaway or the fisherman.
