    I have a 6' bed and have moved a number of times....I can typically fit two long totes (~4 ft long) length wise then another 2-3 smaller "standard" totes (~2ft long). Obviously how you configure them makes a difference, but typically at least 5 will fit with room to spare.

    Depends on what model you get, regular bed, long bed, short, etc...
    I have a regular cab and I would say I could fit 4, maybe more, of the big totes in the back.

    I can fit about 6 of the large ones that I use for camping but without the size info on the tubs you use I can't really guess. I can haul a lot of camp gear in mine. Usually 2 large tubs, a 3 burner camp stove (big one, not colemans stove). 2 Propane tanks, lanterns, firewood, tent, air mattress, fishing gear and a bunch of other crap. I just run some tie downs across the top to keep it all in place.

    Well personaly I am looking at dbl cab...would prefer a long bed but the local selection seams to be more about short beds....and the totes I am refering to are the standard size.. so I guesss I should say dbl cab long bed versis short bed....isn't the dbl cab long bed the same as the standard bed on the acess and reg cab (bed size only)?

    And yes I know you can get a lot more in if you stack...but I am just tring to get an idea how meny will fit on 1layer.
