I don't even like camping. But I have to say, I think the tent on top of the Base Camp Ranger looks pretty awesome! Check out all the pics we got at the LA Auto Show!

Yeah, I can't imagine it'll be cheap to outfit a truck like this... Those tents are a few grand alone!

I regard vehicle-specific tents as a bit gimmicky, but it's clear that Ford is trying to sell to the recreational market with the Ranger, and with its size, should do very well. I suppose a tent that high will keep you out of flood waters and maybe keep you above snakes and bears, but a tent on the ground with cots works just fine for comfort, and you don't have to fold up the tent if you need to run into town for a 6 pack of beer...

I am a bicyclist and have many friends who are cyclists, kayakers, skiers, and campers. The Ranger should serve them well, and make more sense as a daily commuter than an F150. Good luck to Ford, George

I've never understood the appeal of roof-top tents. Sure they look neat, but what's the advantage of a tent on the ground? They are heavier, and more expensive.

BlueSTX is starting off with a positive reputation.
The bumper and winch setup is sweet. Dorkle and roof tent can go along with all that junk on the bed
