Decked Decks out Pickup Truck Beds and More

You may have seen the cool advertisements for the Decked pickup truck bed accessory. They fit in most trucks like the Nissan Titan or Ford F-150. But sometimes this grain of aftermarket add-on can turn out to be cheesy. Are Decked drawers an organizer that is actually as cool as it looks? Or should we stick to building our own truck bed organization?

Whether you want to make an addition to your overland build or you want to get your commercial vehicle organized, Decked is actually a really durable and well thought out product. The pickup truck bed accessory even has a few tricks up its sleeve that make it nearly impossible to talk yourself out of needing one for your pickup truck bed or van conversion.

Decked for pickup truck bed organization

This is a pickup truck bed accessory that is useful for just about anything. Unless, for whatever reason, you can’t afford to lose the truck bed depth that the Decked drawers inevitably decrease. Whether for camping, fishing, hunting, commercial use, tool hauling, overlanding––you name it.

This is an amazing addition to an overland conversion build or to improve the organization of your commercial vehicle. The Decked pickup truck bed accessory has been around for a few years. Today, however, it draws appeal as an addition to the perfect road trip truck or van conversion. With flights at a low point, road tripping is the new trending vacation style.

According to RealTruck.com the Decked drawers system can handle a payload of up to 2,000 pounds. Plus, the drawers can each hold up to 200 pounds and still slide in and out with ease. One special feature of the system is that it is constructed from 100% recyclable materials.

Are Decked drawers waterproof?

Decked drawers are said to be waterproof in the video above. However, this review claims that to say they are weatherproof is more accurate. Storms and carwashes have very little chance of infiltrating to recyclable high-density polyethylene drawer system. Yet, it is possible. Thankfully the drawers have a drain in the event that they take on a little water.

Or, of course, in case you like to party or need to keep things fresh. The cooler aspect of this pickup truck bed accessory is a pretty good idea. But we still think we’d rather used those drawers for other purposes and toss a heavy-duty carry cooler back there instead. Oh, yeah––there is also a stainless steel bottle opener attached right there so that all you have to do is park and open the tailgate in order to pop the top of a favorite bottled beverage.

Not just for trucks
