A truck cap keeps tools dry but can make it harder to get at them. The TramBed provides complete access to the cargo space in your pickup. It consists of a steel frame that telescopes out from the back of the bed and a platform that slides on the frame. Legs fold down from the frame to support the weight of the extended platform, reducing pressure on the truck. The TramBed weighs about 400 pounds and can hold up to 2,500 pounds of tools and materials. Sizes are available for a variety of trucks.
