    So last week I mentioned to my bro inlaw that I wanted to build a sleeping platform in the back of the truck so that I can do some camping. I said that I didn't know where to start and how the design would be. So we struck a deal.......he would build it for me, but I pay for materials, I would have to finish it up (i.e. carpet it), and that he could also borrow it once in awhile to do some camping with the kids.

    Of course I said Heck Yeah! This took him probably a good 6hrs from design to completion. Sure heck would have taken me two or three times as long :eek: On to the pics!!!

    That looks great. Any thought on how much it weighs?? Can you post a little more about where you got the wood and est cost? I'm looking to put one together this week and I like your design.

    No doubt. I thought it was going to be some simple design but he went all out. Plus it is easily removable too!

    3/4 plywood, 2x10 & 2x8 from Home Depot. Total weight added I guess would be around 75lbs as the materials were pretty heavy duty.

    As for the cost, materials was about $60. The killer part was the labor where it probably took about 6hrs.
