    Best Chevy Silverado Bed Rack and Chevy Silverado Roof Rack

    To mount a tent on your Chevy Silverado, you'll need either a bed rack or a roof rack. They have to have crossbars, and they have to have a weight capacity that can handle your tent.

    Bed racks are by far the most common option people choose. They allow you to put the tent over the bed of your truck.

    Our best selling Chevy Silverado bed rack is the Tuwa Pro Shiprock. It has four different height options, is adjustable and modular, and is super strong.

    If you prefer to put the tent on the roof of your cab, Prinsu makes a great Chevy Silverado Roof Rack.

    Chevy Silverado Roof Top Tents FAQ

    What do I need to install a roof top tent on my Chevy Silverado?
    To put a roof top tent on your Chevy Silverado, you'll need a bed rack (by far the most common) or a roof rack. In both cases, they must have crossbars (the ones that go from one side of the truck to the other) and that can handle the weight of the tent.

    Do roof top tents affect gas mileage?
    If you use a mid-height bed rack and the tent stays below the height of the cab, your MPG won't move at all. If the tent is on the roof of the cab, or on a bed rack that puts it above the height of a cab, you might see a small drop of 1-3 MPG. Hard shell tents are more aerodynamic and have less impact on gas mileage.

    Is a mattress included with these roof top tents, or do I need to purchase one separately?
    All of the roof top tents listed above include comfortable mattresses. You can always add a sleeping pad if you choose, but we recommend waiting to try yours first, as these mattresses are legit.

    How long does it take to set up these tents?
    These roof top tents can be set up and taken down in about 1 minute for hard shell tents and about 5 minutes for soft shells.

    Is there a warranty on these roof top tents?
    Yes, all of the roof top tents listed above come with a warranty.

    Well obviously you're always obeying the speed limit, right??! With that assumed, as long as you install the tent and rack properly and use a rack that has a dynamic weight capacity higher than the weight of the tent, you can drive exactly as you'd normally drive. The more off road you get and the bumpier things get, the more we recommend exercising a bit of caution.
