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!

What are the main benefits of using the Trunk Bunk for travel?
Being able to sleep comfortably in your vehicle opens up all kinds of travel flexibility and cost saving options, that’s what the Trunk Bunk is all about. Having a firm and comfortable surface to sleep on in your car makes it much more appealing than sleeping in your seats and we believe that once you get a taste of the travel flexibility the Trunk Bunk offers that you’ll never go back to spending money on hotels or Airbnb’s again.

With the Trunk Bunk anywhere you can park for the night becomes your new home all without ever having to leave your vehicle or pitch a tent! The Trunk Bunk represents a streamlined take on vanlife camping but without having to make permanent alterations to your vehicle or spend untold amounts of money on a new van and fancy conversion job. Once you get out there and discover this style of travel and camping for yourself we’re confident you’ll understand! Want to learn more? Check out the Trunk Bunk Guide!

How much does shipping the Trunk Bunk cost?
It depends on where you are located! Currently we offer shipping to the lower 48/contiguous United States and shipping rates vary by region. You will be charged shipping during the checkout process after you input your address. While the shipping rates might seem high do understand that this is a rather large and heavy product that is packed with the utmost of care. Our shipping rates represent an at cost rate for us as a business and are not a source of profit. If you’re local to the Pacific Northwest you can save money by arranging a local pickup with us in Port Townsend or Seattle!
Is the Trunk Bunk easily removed and reinstalled?
Yes! All of our products are designed to be easily removed and reinstalled by the users so that you don’t have to commit your vehicle to a permanent alteration. The Trunk Bunk in particular is very easy to remove from your car and doesn’t take a ton of space to stow away. In fact, it can fit in the rear compartment space of most vehicles when not being used so you can regain use of your rear seats when you’re not camping out. Want to learn more about the Trunk Bunk? Contact us!
Is the Trunk Bunk easy to assemble on my own? What do I need?
Yes! The Trunk Bunk is both easy and fun to assemble. We provide extremely thorough and simple directions to make putting the Trunk Bunk together a breeze. All you need is an electric screwdriver and a sense of adventure and you’ll have your unit assembled in no time. Our team is also here to help you along the way if you encounter any issues or difficulties in the assembly process. Your honesty and feedback is important to us and is a key tool in helping us improve our designs and instructions over time!
Can you assemble the Trunk Bunk for me?
Generally we do not offer pre-assembled Trunk Bunk’s for sale, as the cost is quite high and it’s not really possible for us to ship them. If however you’re local to the Pacific Northwest and can come get one from us we may be able to make a special arrangement to have the Camp N Car custom shop assemble a Trunk Bunk for you. Please contact us if you are interested in learning more about the availability of pre-assembled Trunk Bunks.
Have you ever lived or traveled extensively out of a vehicle?
The entire inspiration for Camp N Car comes from the shared experiences of the companies founders. Our managing director Steve Moore lived out of a special Honda Element camper in Alaska for 6 months which was designed by our Technical Director Martin Nerbovig. Through this experience he gained a deep insight into living a fulfilling and minimalist lifestyle on the road. After awhile friends started asking about getting builds of a similar nature done for their vehicles and here we are today! We are happy to share our experiences and skills with the world so that others may share in the same kind of joy that this travel brings.

Why does the Tall Trunk Bunk cost this much?
Everything we make is designed with a great deal of thorough engineering and care using advanced software and expensive machinery. From there we pick top quality and sustainable materials and hand craft everything here in Washington State to an extremely high standard. Additionally, our employees are highly skilled craftspeople who are paid living wages and are treated like our family.

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?
As of now we are only able to offer shipping within the contiguous United States, although we do plan on changing this someday. Currently the cost of shipping our products out of the country, to Alaska or Hawaii is just too cost prohibitive for us or our customers. If you don’t live in the lower 48 of the United States and are really determined to get a Trunk Bunk from us and are prepared to pay a very high shipping cost, feel free to contact us and we may be able to arrange something.

Final Considerations

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.

  1. Maryann Tapiro

    I love the new bed frame Camp N Car made for my van! It’s a really great design, made with beautiful wood, and strong enough to hold me and my two dogs. I love that I can make it a single or double and it fits right between the wheel wells inside the back of the van.

    It’s perfect for a necessary cross country road trip during a pandemic. Great guys with a great product! I highly recommend it.

  2. Megan Wildwood

    Assembling the Trunk Bunk was the most fun I’ve had in ages & the best part is that the mattress I bought for my previous platform fit the 6 foot frame perfectly. I seriously can’t recommend this enough. I’ve designed and built three platforms now and not having to measure and cut my wood has saved me a lot of trouble. Now I have way more time for adventuring in my Honda Element!
