Have you ever lived or traveled extensively out of a vehicle?
Why does the Basic Bunk cost this much?
The reality of doing all of this means we can’t offer goods that are as cheap as stuff you can buy from overseas manufactures. We are determined to continue being a company that manufactures solely in the United States and supports our local economy. Once you make your purchase you will see the quality and customer care make it all worthwhile!
Can you ship out of the United States? How about Alaska or Hawaii?
To determine is the Basic 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 23 inches wide. If you have that, then you can make it work! Currently the maximum length of the Basic 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 Basic Bunk work best for you.
The Basic Bunk is plenty big enough to hold Thermarest-style inflatable camping pads, narrow mattresses or other smaller form sleeping cushions. It is not wide enough to hold “full” or “double” sized mattresses. Think of the Basic Bunk as being about the same surface area as your average bivy sack or small 1 person backpacking tent and that should give you a good idea of what you are working with.
