This bed was created for utility as well as RV travel.  Stake pockets and rub rails were installed for unlimited tie down capability, in addition to adding Stake Sides if needed or wanted.  The bed length is just shy of 18′ and was custom designed to haul a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon.  Depending on the truck, and owners needs different size and styles of beds are available.  Fully skirted beds full of storage boxes are possible.  Drom boxes are also available options instead of a headache rack as shown here.

bare bed

Bare bed ready for primer.  Notice the flip up doors.  In that channel holds what we call EZ Slide Ramps.  They are very easy to deploy and stow.  Once the ramps are deployed, the doors flip down giving a bridge for the vehicle being loaded to come up onto the deck with ease.  Notice the Heavy Duty D rings for safety chain connection.
