DIY pickup sleeping bed platform 2.0

Posted by on June 24th, 2021  •  0 Comments

I had a nice permanent 2×4 bed built into my long bed Tundra. But when my daughter needed to move I realized I faced 3 hours of disassembly before my Tundra was back to a normal empty truck.

On to version 2.0 . My priorities were:

  1. It had to be removable in minutes, not hours.

  2. It had to be light and lean, the 2×4 bed was bulky

  3. I needed fold up bed platforms so I could easily walk back to access a rear box, and avoid crawling up the tunnel under the permanent bed.

  4. It needed to be compact, in case I had to disassemble and store it while carrying something large, like a fridge, or some 4 x 8′ sheets of plywood.
