The first step of making your pickup truck into a pool is finding the right tools. That’s where the Keystone Light x Realtree Wav3 comes in handy. This limited edition cooler has room for various things and fits in the back of most pickup trucks. Keystone Light probably intends for this cooler to be filled with beverages more than people, but that’s not the most important part.

The truck bed pool measures 66”x62”x21”, which won’t fit all truck beds. Make sure to measure the size of your pickup truck bed before purchasing this summer necessity. If you are going to use it for a cooler, it won’t matter quite as much. Most standard truck beds are 5.5 feet long, which is exactly 66 inches. Those with a longer or extended truck bed might need extra pool noodles for padding.

At that point, it is probably time to try and make your mobile pool or jacuzzi. Thanks to the collaboration with camo company Realtree, this pool is pretty stylish if you are into camo. If you plan to blend into a parking lot while drinking beers in the back of your pickup truck, you will probably still be spotted.

For $250, you can be the hit of the parking lot. Football tailgating? This pickup truck pool has room for four smaller-sized humans. Maybe three depending on your comfort level, maybe five if you squeeze in. One thing worth noting is that a pool with a volume of 66”x62”x21” can weigh over 2,500 pounds once filled with water.

A lot of trucks can probably hold that much water, but it won’t be a good idea to do it all the time. That’s a lot of weight to be toting around and sloshing on people in traffic. For instance, Ford says that the 2022 F-150 pickup truck has a towing capacity of 8,200 to 14,000 pounds when properly equipped. Once you add in the weight of four to five adults, the Ford F-150 would still be capable of holding the weight.

If you were riding around in a 2022 Ford Maverick, this probably wouldn’t work. Not only is the truck bed smaller, but it can only tow 2,000 pounds. Probably best to still to a cooler with this compact truck.

If the pickup truck bed is used as a cooler, you can fit more than 3,200 beers in it. Why would anyone need 3,000 beers in a cooler? Probably for the Super Bowl, but that’s it. Don’t forget that you will probably need a lot of ice to keep 3,000 beers cold in the back of a pickup truck.

If you are into swimming pools and living in the future, this pickup truck pool idea is for you. Just be sure to measure your truck bed before investing $250 in this idea. Keystone Light says you only have 14 days to return it.
