Cybertruck owners are furious after using the tent attachments included with the Tesla vehicle.

The Basecamp tent costs $3000 and comes with an "ultra-soft mattress" and "enhanced camping experience."

Commercials describe how the tent fits to the back of the Cybertruck, but owners have taken to social media to share their negative reviews.

One customer posted videos and pictures of the tarp extension, saying: "Nothing about the 2019 CyberTruck reveal is meeting expectations."

X user Dangum P.I added: "The reality is this thing is a monumental failure. Which is unfortunate because it could have been a revolutionary."

Plump Pixel, a design company, posted on X that they believe the tent is an "unpolished homeless encampment."

Other angry customers shared their thoughts on the Cybertruck Owners Club website.

One person said the tent is "a bit of a red flag because the rumored self-leveling element is a pretty big deal for roof-top-tent camping."

They said: "Briefly laying on the sleeping mat while parked in my gently sloped driveway I could feel myself rolling downhill.

"The jury is still out on the Basecamp because I'm not yet convinced that the brilliant elements outweigh the areas that need improvement."

The Basecamp feature is supposed to be accessible via the menu on the Cybertruck's touch screen.

But another customer said: "It costs three thousand dollars and the instructions tell you to activate 'Tent Mode,' which does not exist in the car."

Finally, one more customer posted: "The Cybertruck has 381 miles on it, and has spent much of the 11 days in my custody parked in front of my house.

"Cold weather, rain, and some direct sunlight later, I attached a few photos of the corrosion spots and a video."

This comes after recent complaints from a number of Cybertruck customers over rust appearing on the vehicles within two weeks of their purchase.

Owners of the vehicle sign a contract which means they cannot re-sell the car within a year of buying it. If they do, they have to pay a $50,000 fine.
