BamBed - Short Bed Tacoma '05-'23
BamBed - Short Bed Tacoma '05-'23
BamBed is a 3 piece, multi-purpose sleeping platform designed for the Tacoma. It sits above the wheel wells on the stock ledge in the bed. Being above the wheel wells enables a wide sleeping area suitable for two adults on a full-size mattress. The multi-segment design allows for quick reconfiguration as needed to transport tall items like coolers or mountain bikes. Unlike permanently fastened drawer or deck systems, this platform can be removed in under a minute with no tools - allowing full use of your truck bed when you need it. It is small enough to store in a closet when not in use.
Each board is made from an industrial-grade panel that has been precisely cut and finished with rounded edges for a smooth ergonomic feel. This isn't the splinter-filled and warped plywood that you'd buy at the local hardware store.
Each Board can support well over 500lbs on its own, the entire platform can support well beyond the payload capacity of the Tacoma.
If a board were to ever break, we'll send you a replacement at no charge.
Tailgate Extension Option
The tailgate extension option for the short bed Tacoma provides a 6' long sleeping platform that utilizes the tailgate for support. The legs of the extension are spaced such that they sit securely in the grooves of the tailgate. The extension fits snugly between the tailgate bulkhead which prevents any unwanted shifting and results in a very well-secured platform.
This option comes in addition to the regular universal boards so you can choose to sleep on the platform with the tailgate closed or on the extension with the tailgate open.
Bamboo or Birch?
If you want the best possible aesthetic for your home away from home, bamboo provides a gorgeous natural finish. It is made from Architectural-grade bamboo plywood, an internationally recognized environmentally friendly material due to its rapid regrowth rate (full maturity in only 5-7 years). The Bamboo is coated with mineral oil as a final finishing step to bring out the most vivid color in the material.
The Birch plywood is made from long, continuous grain sheets that have an even ply thickness all the way through the laminate. This means that the entire sheet of plywood is extremely stable over time and highly resistant to warping. The thick face plys of the Birch are tough and resistant to scratching and splintering. If you want to customize the look and feel of your boards, the Birch provides a blank slate for you to stain or carpet.
Put your boards to use when they're not in the truck and grab a pair of rocking couch legs that turn two of the existing BamBed universal boards into the seat boards of a 3-person rocking bench.
Sliders enable quick access to the entire cargo area of the truck bed. The low profile design doesn't appreciably reduce total available cargo volume in the way that higher profile rolling drawer systems do.
