Just curious, could they not make a 6' mattress for the short box that would have slight indents at the end to fit around the box openings and rest on an open tailgate? Don't some of the box tents set up with an open box? Thanks

I would be interested in this as well.

So far they can't even make the regular 6ft model as they have been back ordered since September 2012!

What kind of tent or camper shell are you using when you camp? Curious to know how spacious it is covered.

Well my Airbedz has been back ordered since Sept 2012. Just got notice that they finally have stock and have a tracking number.

I hope it was worth the 2 year wait!

Anybody looking for a long bed version? Only used a couple of times and I just upgraded to a tundra so don't need it anymore. I have a Napier sportz tent that pairs real well with it, too.

This looks pretty cool! Do you know if they have one for us short bed folks or are we just screwed? Thanks!

I'm very interested as well... Why can't we just put the tail gate down for our short beds? Will it not line up correctly?

I want to figure out my sleeping arrangements for my camper shell I just got. This would probably be the best solution, however, it might be hindered by having a short bed.

Not sure why we can't just put the tailgate down...

In a short-bed the wheel wells are closer to the cab, so the extra mattress above the wheel wells would have nowhere to go

Make sense?

I too have a short-bed, and wish there was one for us....

It sure does. Son of a bitch!

Why couldn't they just extend the rear part of the bed lol

Hmmm... back to the drawing boards for sleeping arrangements.

EDIT: Earlier I found these (below), I kind of have an idea for sleeping....
Maybe the cot can just prop up and over the wheel well? I measured and with the tailgate open, it should be an exact fit in length and just 2" wider than the cab (above the wheel wells ~58"). Then we would have a queen bed back there!

Seems like it would make sense, however, I don't want to be too close to the roof of my shell, suffocating myself, as if I were in a coffin. No bueno...

looks like there is another company called truck bedz that makes one specifically for short beds.
http://www.truck-bedz.com/automakers...cargo-box.html

Unfortunately, the higher-quality one is out of stock.

I've seen these but I've also read people complaining about leakage, bad customer service, etc...

Mick, sorry my airbedz won't work for you!

What I did in my old truck was just roll up a futon pad and a featherbed mattress topper thing and made a makeshift bed in the back.

You could also make a platform and get an inflatable camping pad or 2 so you'll still essentially be at wheel height for sleeping. Or make a platform and travel with the mattess topper under it and pull it out for sleeping.

At any rate, I'd stay away from a bed mattress that doesn't cover the wheels. Rolling over on that or having it press down right there would be very annoying.

No worries man! Thanks for the ideas.

I will have to go back to the drawing board again. I was debating making a platform, or maybe just the truckbedz mattress that fits specifically for us short bed people. It's used with the tailgate down. Then, maybe put a pad on top. That might work and be the most cost effective.

I got a truckbedz one. Not the good one out of stock but the next one down and it is pretty damn good. Didn't leak on me. The key is inflating them at home to get the initial stretch out

The last I looked places where starting to stock them.
I don't blame AutoAnything, I actually think their service was fantastic and they handled the back order situation great, and I'm quite critical.

I do blame Airbedz as it appears they didn't have product for almost 2 years!
