Review of the MORryde Toy Hauler Inflatable Rear Patio Tent

Adam If you have a toy hauler, you're really looking for a little bit more than what your basic camper lets you do. Well, with this, this is the MORryde inflatable patio setup. So why not make your rig do a little bit more With this, you can utilize this back tailgate and get a little bit more enclosed. A lot of these have an awning up top, but that isn't really gonna protect you from rain or anything like that. So if you wanna just enjoy your time wherever you may be, even if the weather gets a little crummy, it's gonna be a great place to bring all your friends in, so you guys can relax regardless of what the weather brings you. Well, this is the inside.

There's a lot of different things we can do with this. You can just have it as a little hangout spot. You can then eat some dinner back here or if you really just want a tent and kinda camp but not really camp, if the weather's nice, you can open up everything and kinda have the outdoor feel without being completely outside. There's a lot of different ways we can configure this and set it all up, so let's go over that and some specs with you now. So every single side, so three sides, it's gonna have a nice window.

So we're gonna have a couple of layers here. What you can do is you can unzip it like this, roll it back, and then tuck it up just like this if you wanted to do that. And this way, we have just a little bit, but we don't have any air flow. So what we can do, we can undo that on both sides, and once we get that done, you can zip that up and get full privacy. Or we can go ahead and unzip it like this.

So if you really wanna let the light in, you can go for it. And then, you can kinda fold all this stuff up and we're gonna have a little pocket to put this in. So once you get that folded up and put in there, we can put this away, so it's kind of out of the way. Just like this. But this pocket can hold more than just the shade or the privacy feature here.

So we're gonna have, this is gonna protect us from the elements. It's a little plastic. No airflow. Well, we can do the same exact thing as what I just did, but with this thing. And then, it'll go in the same exact spot as our privacy screen. Roll that up, and then put it in our little housing here. It's really nice that it really gives you a place to put it, so it's not just sitting there on the ground. No one's tripping over it or anything like that. So now, we have nice air flow. But if you wanted to have some air flow, but a little bit of privacy too, you can choose. So you can put this side up if you wanted to, if you wanted a little bit of air flow, but you definitely want privacy 'cause this is breathable. So you can do that or do the same setup as before, just without the weatherproof screen to get some air flow going. So a lot of different ways we can do this and it all just depends on the weather and how you guys wanna use it. We're gonna be able to do that with all the other ones. So this side and the backside, same exact deal, works the same exact way. One other thing that we can do, if you want a little bit more light to shine through from the top, we can take this Skyliner and take it out. So basically, we're gonna have some clear pieces right here. So if you wanted to, you can slide these out like this, and then slide it back a little bit or all the way, depending on what you're really wanting to do. And as you can see, we have a perfectly clear, awesome, little skylight, which I like that. I like getting the natural sun in here, it's the best way to do it. And you can either take this thing completely off or just do what I'm doing and just kinda slide it back. 'Cause it all slides back through the track. It all just depends on what you're wanting, but there's a lot of things we can do here. And it all just depends again on what the weather is and how exactly you guys wanna use it. So really, it's cool 'cause there's a lot of different situations, especially if you're traveling all over the place. So this thing's really gonna be able to really mold to exactly what you need. So I like this setup just because one, I can see the rain; two, I can hear the rain; or if there's just sun coming in, it's gonna really light up this whole entire area. If you have a lot of traffic coming in and out and you don't really want that door to be opened and closed all the time, we do have two different exits. So this one here and the one behind me, we're gonna see a really big zipper. So this zipper is gonna go and bypass the privacy screen, the water screen, and the bug screen. So you really need to have this open. It's really nice because we don't have to worry about having to go through that entrance every single time. So you can get in and out over here, no problem. If you do like the idea of having access from your tailgate, we do have some steps on our website, so definitely go check that out. It's something that you're really gonna need, I think, if you do plan on using the different entrances like we have here. So go and check it out. All of our fabric is gonna be scratch resistant, and especially with our lower unit here, this is gonna be waterproof. It gives you a nice, waterproof base. It's not gonna rip or tear or anything, especially if you have people with maybe like a rock stuck in their shoe. It's not really gonna rip or tear easily at all, so it's very, very heavy duty. So it should last you a long time. And if the elements do get to it, whether it's just rain, we have the protection for that. But also with the winds, this thing is gonna be able to withstand up to 60-mile-an-hour winds. It's pretty stout, and I really liked the tubular design. It makes it really, really strong. So you never know what mother nature's gonna throw at you. Rain, wind, you're good. The structure is super, super strong, but what really is gonna hold this thing up in those heavier winds is gonna be these straps. You're gonna have three. And then of course, you're gonna have two on the corners here, but these are really gonna help it stay down and make sure it doesn't go anywhere if something crazy comes in. If you're wondering if this is gonna work with your fifth wheel toy hauler, you just wanna make sure that your door is gonna be at least 92 inches tall and at least 83 inches wide. Take note of the frame and make sure it's steel. You just take a magnet there, because that's gonna be essential to putting up all the water barriers as we call them. So you just wanna make sure that works. And if it falls within those bounds, you're good to go. The dimensions of the pop-up patio is gonna be about 91 inches long by about 84 inches wide. And it is gonna sit up about 92 inches. Once the trip's over, we gotta tear this thing down, so we're gonna go ahead and do that. And I'm always curious if it's gonna go into the bag as pretty as it was before. So I'm gonna go ahead and do it and give you an honest idea of how difficult it is to get it back, all assembled into that little bag. So I got the whole entire tent back in the bag. It took a little bit of time. You're gonna have to utilize your weight to get a lot of that air out or you can use the pump to pump all that air out. But it really is a game of folding it right to get it down in there. So I still have a little bit of room once I got it in, so we can still put the support beam in here. We're gonna be able to fit our ties or straps in there. And then, we do have the Skyliner too. So that'll all fit in there nice and tight, nice and tight. But you'll get an idea of how you really need to fold it to get everything in there. One thing I did not fit back in is this pump. I could probably get it to fit in there, but I don't want to ruin the zippers. So if you can find a spot in some of your storage compartments, wherever you may have all your stuff, you can store this somewhere else and you can also store the mechanical pump, which I hope you got in that same exact spot. But it does fit back in the bag, and I was fairly surprised. Took me about 11 1/2 minutes all by myself, so you can do it that quick too. To give you my honest opinion about this thing, if you have a toy hauler and you don't have this thing in your repertoire of things you bring on your trip, this thing's awesome, and you should definitely have it. It's really, really structurally sound, it doesn't take a whole lot of time to set up, and it really just lets your rig do a little bit more. That's probably why you bought a toy hauler, not just a camper. So why not make it do even more If I had a toy hauler, this would definitely be something I'm bringing along 'cause it's awesome and people are gonna love it too, you and your friends. So if you wanna see the whole installation process and stuff like that, stick around. We're gonna show you how we did it. Once you get your patio all set up, we will eventually have to close these doors. But so you guys can see, let's take everything out of the package. We got these two little clips here like that. And then, we can get everything out from inside. Everything fits in quite nicely, so keep in mind how it's all rolled up and stuff, so we can get it back in pretty simply. We're gonna have two different pieces. You can you put the bag to the side for now. We're gonna have two other little clips. And basically, we're gonna have our tent section, but then we're also gonna have our little water prevention. So we're gonna put that down first. So this is what we get with the kit, we're gonna have the tent. We're gonna have our little Skyliner, which is gonna go on the top. We're gonna have our ground sheet, which is gonna be step one. We do get a pump. This is a manual pump that comes with it, and we do have a little carrying case too. So that's always a plus. So you don't have to grab a manual pump. It will come with it, which is always a plus. It might take a little bit more time, but it comes with it in a carrying case. Then, we're gonna have all of our straps and stuff. So that's what we get. So let's go ahead and start the installation process. So now, we're gonna go ahead and close this up. Now, we can take our ground sheet and notice on one side right here, this is gonna go towards the fifth wheel. So these are little magnets. So this is why we wanna make sure that your frame right here is not gonna be aluminum. So it's steel, so these will stick. So what you wanna do is kinda get it nice and straight. You can see those magnets are sticking to it pretty nicely. So let's get that all in line, nice and even. We're gonna pull this out and get it lined up and perfectly evenly distributed throughout the whole entire tailgate. If you're wanting to know if this is gonna work for you, meaning if you have a frame that is gonna be aluminum or steel, all you gotta do is take a magnet. And if you get the magnet to stick, you are not messing with aluminum so you are good to go. Now, we can take our tent and roll it out. And we wanna figure out which side needs to go where, so we don't have to flip this thing back around whenever we get it all inflated up. So we see this little water barrier and we still have these little magnets, so this is gonna go towards the fifth wheel. And then, obviously, out here is gonna go towards out there. So that's a good reference point to figure out if it's in the right orientation. And basically, all I did was just take it out of the box and roll it out this way. So the closest part has the little magnets on it. So that's going towards the trailer. Unfold it. Get it kinda ready, just so the air doesn't have to do it for you. It's also smart to identify the corners like this. Here's this little pad and you have these little straps. So that'll go into this corner. Now, we're pretty much good. It's pretty much laid out. It just needs to get inflated. So once that's all laid out, you can go ahead and proceed. It doesn't matter how you are pumping this thing up, but there is gonna be one of these inlets on both sides towards your fifth wheel. So we wanna make sure that we put this in and then twist it, so we're not gonna be losing the air we're putting in. As you can see, I'm using the pump that came with the kit. So we have a little air inlet right here. You can push that in. We're gonna have to twist it to get it locked into place. Then, we can start pumping. This thing definitely pushes a lotta air, but I can just see this taking a long time. So I like to save time and I like to work smarter, not harder. This, it works. But, but it does take a long, long time. So what I suggest doing, if you guys are gonna grab this, might as well get a pump for it. So that's what we have right here. This is just gonna make really, really quick work of it. It is gonna be in the related parts section of this webpage. So if you like to maybe just get there, get it all set up really, really quickly, this is gonna be the best way to do it. So I'm gonna screw this side on. We wanna pick the right tip, which we're gonna be using this quarter-turn, thread that into the end, and then we can do this a little bit quicker this time. This pump is only gonna come with a 12-volt output, so if you have a 12-volt socket somewhere in here, you can use that. It does come with a couple different extensions and it does have an extremely long cord, so you might even be able to run it all the way up to your vehicle. But just note, you are gonna have to supply power at 12 volts with a 12-volt socket. But it's worth it because this is gonna be a lot quicker. It only took about 3 1/2 minutes to pump it up with the compressor. And the nice thing about the compressor is you can set the psi rating. So the max psi you wanna put in these tubes is about seven psi. So if you are doing the hand pump, you're not gonna have that luxury of knowing exactly how much pressure you're putting in. And of course, it's gonna take a lot more time. So if you're gonna do this, I recommend highly grabbing the pump. Now, it's time to take this off and it will prevent that pressure from coming out because of this. But we do want to put this back in just to make sure no one's gonna bump it, and then we are good. We do need to inflate the support tube, and I'm just using the same exact pump as before. It took maybe 15 seconds. Take that out, put this back in, and notice that we have some hook and loops. So where it's gonna go is right here. So I'm gonna put the zipper side facing up. We're gonna go on that side and kinda push to get it on the other side. Just like that. Now, we need to install the Skyliner. It's just gonna go up top. And basically, we're just gonna have these clips, just like this. And around all four sides at the top, we're gonna have these little pieces here. So it's basically just gonna slide in there and it'll be able to slide and then hold itself on that. So what we wanna do is figure out which side goes where. So one side of the Skyliner is gonna have four clips, one, two, three, and four. And this is the one we're gonna wanna use on these sides, so the farthest back and the farthest closest to your rig, just because we're gonna avoid this altogether. So you wanna get that all lined up. But what we're gonna do is we're gonna start up by the rig first. So we found the center and we're gonna start with this one on the end. These end ones are gonna have a little clip. You just wanna push this down to open up that opening. And we do wanna make sure that the pretty side is gonna be facing down. Once I figure that out. I'm gonna put this first one on. Stops, so then you gotta take it, pressing that little lever, slide it down a little bit. We'll take the next one, slide this on. This isn't gonna have a clip. It'll slide really easily. And I wanna take this one and go all the way to the end, but not too far like that. Right at the end. Just like that. We need the same thing on this side. And then, we can go take the first one with the clip. Like that. And then, the second one. We'll move on to the sides and same idea. We're gonna get the one that goes farthest that way. We're gonna feed that one on first. Then this one, then this one, then that one. Keep it nice and tight. Once we do that for the right and left side, we're gonna end up on this back side. And then, this is gonna be the same exact process as we just showed you. We're almost done. Put this one on right at the edge like that. Put this one on right here. Same thing with this side and then the last one. Perfect. So remember the border barrier magnets on the bottom piece we did first Well, we're gonna have the same exact setup up here. So what you wanna do is start up top and you wanna get all these magnets to where they're gonna stick on. And if you are getting that, we wanna make sure and shift this tent a little bit closer to our opening. We wanna go up and on there, make sure that everything is gonna be nice and tight to keep all that water out. I'm gonna do that on the top, start up here, and then we can go to the sides as well. And we do wanna make sure these are gonna be facing out just so the water is not gonna seep in. Just like this. We can go all the way around and connect it to our little door trim. Now, we wanna secure it to our door. So the first one's gonna be connected already. So I just went ahead and disconnected that. So what we wanna do is go underneath this corner and we wanna make sure you do have square corners because you're gonna need that to secure it down. Clip this in and then make it nice and tight to bring this tube up and into the corner. Kinda reach in there and make sure it's nice and square. And then, we can do the same thing for the other side. For the remaining of our straps, we're gonna have three of them. So what we wanna do is we're gonna have three, so we're gonna put one on each end and then one in the middle. So what you can do is slide one. Same things as before. Put that there, put this in the middle, around this little pole, and then we can put the last one over here. So what you wanna do once you do that, you can take the excess and toss it to the other side. And we'll do the same exact thing over there to get it all tightened down. Once we get that on, it's gonna be the same for all of 'em. You'll get this nice and tight. You're gonna have to lean underneath this tailgate to get it tightened down. And all we have is three of 'em and then we're good. And that's basically it for the setup. So that'll pretty much do it for our look at the MORryde inflatable rear patio setup for your toy haulers. And I'm Adam with etrailer..
