What's in the bed of your truck? Pics, please.

We're making the transaction from 44' diesel pusher moho to 3/4 ton pickup and Airstream 30' trailer.

So far, I'm planning for the Honda i2000 generator, a gas container, a couple of camp chairs, and a camp table to ride in the bed of the truck. But I'm sure there will be some other items I haven't even thought of yet.

What do you carry in your truck bed? Pics would be awesome. Thank you.

Toolboxes. Cast iron cookware. Camp stove, jerry cans for water. Bottle jacks. Pressure treat wood, about 30' of 10 X on which to level and park TT. BBQ grill and all supplies for it. Spare parts and emergency gear. Hoses and electrical cord (well over 100' of each of type to run trailer). Long handle brooms and brushes. Truck and TT cleaning chems. Hitch components (not just for this trailer). Shovels, sledge hammer, transport chains, etc. Big air compressor. All the dirty and heavy stuff appropriate to full timing. With cab height bed topper, just over 1000-lbs. stored mainly in tubs on plastic bed liner. (Would rather have product called Bed Rug).

Kept it simple

I do not carry much, propane grill(won't fit in AS outside storage), 2 ZipDee chairs, wheel chocks, outside mat, and sometimes a Yamaha 2k generator(propane). Inside the truck I carry a small amount of tools and my VIAIR compressor. I drive a 1/2 ton and do not see the need to buy a bigger truck as my capacity requirements are obviously small.

For the last six years on our annual 6-7 month cross-country tour to winter destinations: Airstream power cord, water and Sewer Solution hoses, chocks and blocks, water softener, flagpole (painter's extension rod), two lawn chairs, short aluminum step-ladder, two plastic storage boxes to catch Airstream interior clutter until a trip to Goodwill to donate it.

A fabric tonneau covers it. No longer carry our Honda generator and its gas can, Airstream has enough solar and battery to get along (nice quiet effortless traveling companion, this may be our next upgrade).

Just took delivery of our 2015 Classic. We found that we could transfer everything we previously had in our 32' Montana Fifth Wheel into our new trailer. Airstream has done a great job of engineering and and organizing the many storage areas in the Classic.
In the back of the truck (Ford F-350) we built a storage container for the bed front section with three compartments to hold two Honda 2000 Propane converted generators and a toolbox in the 3rd compartment. Normally we will travel with just one generator to occasionally power misc appliances and/or extend TV operation time if extended beyond what the solar panel recharged batteries can handle. We will bring along the 2nd generator if we anticipate needing to run the A/Cs.
Only other items in the truck bed will be a Tailgater and a Propane Grill housed in custom containers. This will leave enough room for a water bladder to replenish the water supply as we do mostly dry-camping.

I'm height restricted due to my BakFlip VP tonneau cover. I usually carry two folding recliner chairs. I have to lay them flat on each other and they take up too much space but the DW likes them too much. Patio mat, 200 watt portable solar panel, inflatable kayak, bag with PVDs, 2 inflatable seats, pumps, oars, two plastic bins, one with Lynx blocks, some short pieces of 2x6, small ax, shore power protector and sewer hose support slinky, 2nd bin has a pieces of green outdoor carpet for the solar panel and electric water pump to pump water out of water containers. O'Grill BBQ, 5lb propane bottle and small bin with BBQ accessories. Small plastic folding table, larger aluminum table that folds into a bag, small toolbox and a bag with my portable impact and drill. 3 gal rigid water container and 2 collapsible 5 gal water containers.


In my rear slide out tray on our Airstream Classic: 2 water hoses, two 30 amp electric cables for shore power, sewer hose extension, couple of plastic bags with water hose adapters and electrical adapters, water filter, awning rod, plastic chocks, TV coax cable.

2010 Tundra 5.7L SR5 Double Cab, 2x4, 6 1/2' bed.

We do something a little different. Our tow vehicle is a one ton long bed. In the bed we carry the usual tools and extra clothes, etc. We also carry and extra bedroom, bath and refrigerator/freezer.

All that stuff is in my Airstream. Water hose in the water connection compartment (maybe only Classics have this?). Shore cord is in the storage at the back of the trailer that goes under the bed. 1 section of sewer hose is in the rear bumper storage. 1 section of sewer hose is in the sewer hose storage tube under the front of the trailer. Lawn chairs (Zip Dee) are in their little cabinet to the right of the entry door (maybe this is a Classic only thing?). Chocks are in the storage on the street side under the dinette bench. Flags are under the bed.

Short hose for black tank flush is in water compartment. Long hose for city water connection is in the rear storage under the bed.
