Luxury Truck Camping (Updated)

Camping means different thing to different people. While some enjoy roughing it with only the bare minimum, others believe that an enjoyable camping experience requires a big fifth-wheel or motor home. One thing most campers have in common is that they want to be comfortable.

Somewhere in between the minimalist camper and the luxury RV crowd is Bryan Sober. Bryan has modified the bed of his pick-up truck to have all the comforts of home.

You’ll be amazed at what can be done with such a small space.

(See Bryan’s original video and updated video below.)


Bryan’s latest video includes a number of improvements on his original design, including curtains.

  1. Awesome set up, sir! Plan on making a removable set up like this this for my ’08 Ram for when I go hunting and camping. so much better than paying for a hotel.

  2. That’s a great set up…..but where are you going to put the elk, deer, antelope, moose, or whatever you are hunting once you are successful? I truly expect to get the back of my truck bloody and dirty when I fill my tag, especially on a larger animal like elk.

  3. That is a pretty nice set up. It’s what we women call glamping – roughing it in style. As for where to put the big buck, strap in on the hood, of course!

  4. For the curtain, I would put another rod at the bottom of the window and have someone make a curtain to fit it. It would be easy to make and cheap if you have access to a sewing machine.

  5. tripping the circuit breaker wears out the circuit breaker. so after a awhile it degrades and does work. The wire should be ok as long as the current surges are not so high as to cause damage. therefore over spec your wires.

  6. My husband is just completing a similar set up. His is very detailed with electric outlets, portable jon, lots of storage under the beds, covered foam sleeping mats, step stool to easily access the cap/camper. We will make window coverings soon. We do not hunt, but we love camping and hiking as well as biking. It is our plan to purchase a high end tent to set up as living area (room to store it under one bed). Beats the high price of storage and insurance we have paid for a nice travel trailer. We can store this in our finished basement and be ready to pull out in short order. We are retired and not ready to sit in front of a TV in our senior years.

  7. Go to an a car auction buy a small headstart type school bus and fix it up after taking out the seats. much more room for a bed table and you can add a small flat 20-30 gal water tank to back and have plenty of water to have to go camping. do it less than 1500. bucks

  8. Awesome, I currently use a twin size air mattress the fits perfectly in the back of my Pacifica, I made screens (that attach with magnets) to go over the outside of the two back windows so it doesn’t get to hot and keeps bugs out. However not as cool a set up as yours. Great idea.

  9. I have a Toyota tundra with a camper shell on it this video has gave me some ideas only I’m have trouble with is I’m six foot 3 but I gave me a good duration to go in
