Nice Camping Option !

In all the times I have been camping with Blazers, I never thought about this setup, pretty neat. Looks like I will have to try this out this summer. Hopefully I can get my tent to work with this.

Thanks

That's awesome! One of the reasons why I bought my Blazer is because a buddy of mine always camps in his. With his backseat removed and couple sleeping bags in the back, he has a really nice setup.

Hey, that's cool. I already have a few tents, but that's killer.

What's the tent brand or model...??

Thx.

I have seen those used on pickups with a camper shell on the back. I think you could get one from Cabela's or Bass Pro.

As a bonus, if your exhaust is done right you have heat in the winter.

Its sad but a disclaimer is needed. During the ice storm here, people actually put generators in the middle of the living room.
Natural selection, although sad and avoidible.

That tent setup looks cool until it rains and "dry" turns to mud. Then it's time to sleep in the blazer.

I'd be tempted to buy a tent like that if anyone knew where?

digging up an old thread, because i would love to know what model specifically fits the k5, and if anyone sees any reason not to get this. I camp in the back, but would love to kick the dog out of bed and have her sleep in the tent portion.
