Default Truck bed camping

Hi folks,

What do you think of such camping setup?
https://www.carid.com/napier/sportz-...ruck-tent.html

I was wondering, whether such a setup works okay when it's raining? Because I'm afraid water may get between the tent walls and bed sides and as a result one can end up sleeping in a puddle lol

I don't have personal experience with this but plenty when it comes to tent camping.
If rain is a concern a simple rain fly will alleviate it.
Big tarp a couple ties and your concerns should be gone.

It looks like it is well thought out and it shouldn't get water in the bed
