The Trunk Bunk Guide
Unsure if the Trunk Bunk is right for your vehicle? Need some help figuring out sizing, dimensions or other fitting considerations? We’re here to help!
The Trunk Bunk comes in two different lengths to choose from, 5.5 feet long and 6 feet long. At its most contracted it measures 24 inches wide, and at its maximum expansion measures 42 inches wide. So long as your vehicle is capable of having a relatively flat, even surface in the back that measures a minimum of 5.5 feet long and 24 inches wide the Trunk Bunk will work for you. Most vehicles with folding or removable seats that fold down with a relatively flush surface area are compatible with the Trunk Bunk.
Sitting about 16 inches high from the bottom, the Tall Trunk Bunk offers double the storage space underneath the platform of the original Trunk Bunk. This means more space for all of your important pieces of gear, battery setups, coolers and more! Furthermore the Tall Trunk Bunk sits high enough to clear most wheel wells and other obstacles that are often built into the interior of vehicles. With all this extra space you know the Tall Trunk Bunk has your back for some epic extended adventures!
Deploying, moving and storing the Trunk Bunk is extremely easy. Because it comes apart in two different pieces (either 2.5′ or 3′ long each depending on your total length) 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!

Why does the Tall Trunk 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 out of China, but we are determined to continue being a company that manufactures solely in the United States and supports our local economy. The result may be something a bit more expensive, but the quality and customer service speaks for itself.
We have to charge a little more for the Tall Trunk Bunk because it takes a good deal of extra materials and labor to create the parts for the elevated legs which are also reinforced for extra sturdiness.
Can you ship out of the United States? How about Alaska or Hawaii?
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 feet long and at least 24 inches wide. If you have that, then you can make it work! Currently the maximum length of the Trunk Bunk we can offer is 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. It is also our intention to release an extension platform that adds an extra foot of length to the Trunk Bunk very soon.
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.
