Why You’ll Love the Trunk Bunk
Do you want to sleep comfortably in your car without making any permanent alterations? If so, meet the Trunk Bunk!
The Trunk Bunk is our most popular product here at Camp N Car. It’s a bed frame that can sleep one person or expand to fit two! It’s perfect for romantic weekend getaways, rejuvenating road trips, or any kind of adventure you’re taking with a vehicle!
Bed frames are important for car camping because they add to the square footage of your car by providing layers. For example, you can sleep on top of your Trunk Bunk while storing things underneath. How’s that for optimization?!
Road trips, car camping, and outdoor adventures are all more fun when your gear is organized, and with the Trunk Bunk, you’ll have a clean living space to return to after a day of climbing rocks or sliding down sand dunes.
We can’t talk about this bed frame without mentioning quality, so you should know the Trunk Bunk was invented by car campers and vanlife enthusiasts like you. It is also made in the USA using sustainable business practices!
One of the best things about this car camping bed frame is that it’s easy to assemble. In fact, all you’ll need is an electric screwdriver and a couple of hours to pop the Trunk Bunk together. Instructions are provided, and our team is only a phone call away if you have questions.

Trunk Bunk Decision 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!
Our Trunk Bunks come in 5′, 5.5′, and 6′ lengths. These are approximate measurements, each model is a little shy of these actual lengths. At its most contracted, the Trunk Bunk is 25” wide, and at its maximum expansion, it measures 42”. So if your vehicle is relatively flat and long enough to support the bed size you want with 24 inches of width the Trunk Bunk will work for you!
The regular Trunk Bunk is 9.5” tall and offers 6.5” of clearance from the ground to the bottom of the bed platform, and the tall Trunk Bunk is 17” tall and offers 14” of clearance. With regard to the height, you’ll want to consider headroom (don’t forget to measure the mattress), and when it comes to clearance, you’ll want to keep storage and your vehicle’s wheel wells in mind.
Uneven surface in your vehicle? No problem! Our leveler legs make adjustments easy. Attaching to every leg of the Trunk Bunk, the Leveler Legs give you up to 2″ of adjustment on all points of contact. Storage is also a piece of cake. The Trunk Bunk comes apart in two sections (2.5′ or 3′ depending on the version) for easy storage and adjustment when not camping.

Our Trunk Bunk expandable bed frame is big enough to fit twin mattresses, camping pads, and other small foam sleeping cushions. It’s not big enough for “full” or “double” sized mattresses, although we’ve been known to cut mattresses to fit. It also comes in 5′, 5.5′, and 6′ lengths, but taller people sometimes use a well-placed cooler or storage tote to add inches.
In short, if you want to seriously upgrade your camping experience without the hassle and expense of a custom conversion, the Trunk Bunk is your best friend. Don’t wait because the weather won’t!
