I love my setup.
There are pros and cons to every camp/tent/truck setup.
I think a truck bed setup like mine is unbeatable for quick 1-3 day hunts.
For longer 5-10 day hunts, I think a tent is better. But it also depends on how much you're moving around. If you have a 10 day hunt, but you expect to change camp sites every few days, I'd give the edge to a truck bed camper.
Either way works.
The flip side is that I absolutely LOVE the camper shell for everyday life. Like many of you guys, I've driven a truck for over 20 years. I've had open beds, and several different tonneau covers on mid-size and full-size trucks. This is my first camper shell and I don't think I'll be going back. Other than cost, there are very few downsides.
I also found a pretty cool pop-up style tent (think pop-up weather proof ground blind) called the gazelle. I'll be using it the next time I go on a longer hunt. I'll do a review on it soon. Been meaning to do that for awhile.
Post pics whenever you decide on something. I'm sure it'll be awesome.
