Chilling as a Pool 

Nothing is better than having the option to have a pool wherever you drive. All you need to do is buy an oversized tarp and then place it in the bed of the truck. Once you have that secure, add water and voilà, a pool! The only thing to be conscious about is the amount of people who go in. Trucks do have a weight limit, so stay mindful of that and know the limits of your specific model. 

As a Cooler 

Fill up the bed of your truck with as much ice as you would like and pile in the drinks. You will be the go-to spot for tail-gating or any outdoor party. 

For Sleeping 

What better way to elevate your sleep than by snoozing in your truck bed? There are a few options of doing this. Bring an air mattress and a sleeping bag to enjoy the stars in comfort in the open air. If you are looking for more privacy, you can fit a tent in and have the outdoors experience without the bugs crawling over everything.
