Truck Camping: Modifying the Bed Frame

Still making changes to my Toyota Tundra Truck Camping System. On my last trip, I had a little difficulty with the bed being too high so I called up my friend Scott to help me shorten the legs on the frame. After we finished, It was much more manageable getting in and out of the bed and I had a lot more headroom. Modifying the bed frame in this way has really improved the comfort level. We basically just cut three inches of each of the support legs and re-used the plastic caps on the ends. This was a simple modification but made a world of difference. My next step will be to buy properly sized tubs to fit under the bed for storage. I will also be making some more modifications to the top of the truck cap as I will be installing a roof rack and basket, and finally an ARB 8X8 awning All of these preparations are for a road trip out west this summer in which I will be camping each night and not spending any money on a hotel. I plan on visiting Colorado and Utah and seeing some amazing sites along the way

Truck Camping: First Overnighter in my Toyota Tundra

I am embarking on a new kind of camping for me: Truck Camping. In this video, I am basically doing a shakedown camp to test out the theories of staying warm, preparing food, and just getting used to the idea of camping in my truck. This is a short video and more will be coming in the future:
