    New member here so please forgive me if I've posted this in the wrong section. I'm needing to downsize from my GMC 2500HD and looking at a double cab longbed. My boys and I ride dirtbikes and currently in the stable is a CRF50, CRF100 and CR250. I'm trying to figure out if all three bikes will fit in a 2005-06 Tacoma longbed without any problem? Thank you in advance for any assistance or pics you can share!

    I don't think you're going to get all three in.

    I put a pair of WR250Fs into the back of my '03 Tundra... wouldn't have wanted to have tried to fit a fiddy in there, and the Tacoma is a bit smaller and shorter.

    That was the one and only time I loaded the bikes in the back of the truck. I would seriously recommend getting a 3-rail trailer.

    I have a 2006 2wd long bed Tacoma and I often haul a big XR500R and an XR400R with lots of room left for gear and bike stands and fuel jugs and everything else. Since you only have one full-size bike, I think you can get all three into your bed. You might have to get a little creative with their positioning... try putting the CR250 facing forward on the right, put the CRF100 facing forward next to it (back end moved to the right), then put the CRF50 facing rearward on the left... or switch the positions of the 50 and 100, whichever works best. You might need to be comfortable with some bikes resting a wheel on the tailgate, I do this all the time and it's no problem, just be sure they are all strapped in tight -- give the bars and the truck bed and everything a good shaking (to see what moves) before you head out. I like to put bungees between the strap hook eyes for each strap, this maintains tension on the hooks so they stay hooked even if the strap gets some slack. Good luck, have fun!

    Thanks for the replies everyone! I'm thinking I could buy a single rail bike hauler as previously mentioned to put into my receiver hitch and put my 250 on there. My oldest has upgraded to a CRF150RB but I'm wondering if I can shut the tailgate with that bike in the bed? Any CRF150RB owners on here that can attest to that ability?

    Thanks again!

    Since yall enjoy riding so much and they are only going to get bigger it wouldnt be a bad idea to look in to getting a trailer. The bikes are only going to get bigger and even with a 2500 you would have a hard time fitting 3 dirt bikes and all of yalls gear in there as well

    No way, I can get 3 bikes and gear in a 1998 Tacoma, you just gotta know how to pack. I ride/race every weekend and I bring my race bike, practice bike, and wife's bike and its no problem, ya just gotta know how to do it!

    Here in Cali we gotta drive 55 with a trailer so I would rather fit the bikes in the truck and drive FAST!

    I picked this up last week for $50 bucks on craigslist, only used once. Perfect to haul my TW 200 down to the Pine Barrens. Plan to put lights on it from Harbor Freight for $20. Easy to load by myself with my bad back....;)
