Our Basic Bunk comes in 5′, 5.5′, and 6′ lengths, so it can fit in a wide variety of vehicles and sleep humans of all sizes! These single sleeper platforms are 23” wide, which makes them ideal for all kinds of one-person camping mattresses.

The normal Basic Bunk is 9.5” tall and offers 6.5” of clearance from the ground to the bottom of the bed platform, and the tall Basic Bunk is 17” tall and offers 14” of clearance.

Uneven surface in your vehicle? No problem! Our leveler legs make adjustments easy. Attaching to every leg of the Basic Bunk, the Leveler Legs give you up to 2″ of adjustment on all points of contact. Storage is also a piece of cake.
