Trunk Bunk – Modular Vehicle Camping Platform
The Trunk Bunk is a modular sleeping platform appropriate for a wide variety of vehicles. Sleep better in your vehicle and say goodnight to expensive lodging. Handmade in the United States with the finest quality sustainable, eco-friendly, ethically sourced materials. Based on a classic vanlifer design, the Trunk Bunk allows you to sleep in nearly any vehicle without having to make permanent alterations to the functionality of your car. It’s perfect for weekend getaways, long road trips or any kind of adventure you’re taking with a vehicle!
Described as “the most fun I’ve had in ages” by a recent customer, the process of putting the Trunk Bunk together is easy and extremely enjoyable! All you need is an electric screwdriver, a few hours and a sense of adventure and you’ll have your very own Trunk Bunk ready for all kinds of journeys. Instructions will be provided to help ensure a smooth assembly process but our team is also on standby to help if you encounter any hiccups along the way.
The Trunk Bunk comes in three different lengths to choose from, 5′ feet long, 5.5′ long and 6′ long. These are approximate measurements and each model is a little shy of these actual lengths. At its most contracted it measures 25 inches wide, and at its maximum expansion measures 42 inches wide. So long as your vehicle is capable of having a relatively flat, level surface in the back that measures a minimum of 5, 5.5, or 6 feet long and 24 inches wide the Trunk Bunk will work for you.
Sitting about 9.5 inches off the ground, the Trunk Bunk offers a solid amount of storage space underneath while not sitting up so high that you can’t sit up or start feeling claustrophobic. There is about 6.5 inches of clearance from the ground to the bottom of the sleeper platform, so keep this in mind when thinking about wheel wells and storage. If this version of the Trunk Bunk is too short for your needs then check out the Tall Trunk Bunk for a version that has twice the clearance!
Deploying, moving and storing the Trunk Bunk is extremely easy. Because it comes apart in two different pieces (either 2.5′ or 3′ long) it can be stowed away in the back of your vehicle or elsewhere without taking up tons of space. This makes it a great option for those who don’t want to make permanent alterations to their vehicle or may need their full seat capacity during the day. You can even transfer it to use in future vehicles if you upgrade your adventure-mobile someday!
To determine is the Trunk Bunk is right for your vehicle you may need to bust out the tape measure and ensure that there is a minimum viable flat surface no shorter than 5, 5.5 or 6 feet long and at least 25 inches wide. If you have that, then you can make it work! Currently the maximum length of the Trunk Bunk we can offer is just under 6 feet. We realize this makes it non-ideal for anyone who is especially tall, but there are a lot of creative solutions for ways you can rest your feet off the edge of the bed platform if it comes down to it. Feel free to contact us if you have questions on how to make the Trunk Bunk work best for you.
The Trunk Bunk is plenty big enough to hold Thermarest-style inflatable camping pads, twin mattresses or other smaller form sleeping cushions. It is not wide enough to hold “full” or “double” sized mattresses without the edges of those mattresses spilling off the sides a little bit, although this can work sometimes if your vehicle interior is actually wide enough to hold a mattress that large. Think of the Trunk Bunk as being about the same surface area as your average 2 person backpacking tent and that should give you a good idea of what you are working with.
