These Beds Made From Vintage Trucks Are The Perfect Bed For Truck Lovers
Date Published: 09/04/2020 11:25 AM
There are two kinds of truck lovers in this world, Chevy lovers, and Ford lovers. But chances are both would probably prefer to sleep in the truck every night rather than their own bed. Well, some people have even started converting their own vintage trucks into beds so they really never have to leave the comfort of their truck. Even if you don't already own a vintage truck that you could turn into a bed, Etsy sellers brianbauer1 and Tailgatecustom both offer kits that help you build your own version of a vintage truck bed.
The Etsy Seller Tailgatecustom offers a bed frame that's actually made from a Chevrolet step side pickup truck, which no doubt runs much more expensive at over $7,600. Though, etsy seller brianbauer1 offers a fiberglass bed frame that's just meant to look like an old vintage pickup truck, which is quite a bit cheaper at around $1,900.
If you plan to go the DIY route and convert your own vintage truck into a queen size bed, I would imagine there's some instructions on the internet somewhere or a Youtube video that could help you along. But the best we can offer is some inspiration in image form. Check below for some more examples of vintage trucks converted into real sleeping beds for adults or kids.
