Bedslides are simply the easiest way to load and unload your truck. It basically turns your truck bed into a sliding drawer. This product is about efficiency—minimum time and energy for maximum results. It is all about getting the job done right. There is a bedslide model to fit almost any truck, van or SUV to make loading, transporting and accessing your freight simple and safe.

Carpeted Bedslide

The Standard is our most popular BedSlide, made for all traditional pickups (non-Avalanch/EXT) and utility vans. It’s made with high-quality welded steel, a painted finish, 4 sealed roller bearings, 3 locking positions with a twist T-handle, black ABS side rails, 3/4″ CDX plywood covered with a synthetic gray carpet. The Standard will hold up to 1,200 pounds of evenly distributed weight. Best yet is our mounting system. Once the BedSlide is installed, two people can easily remove the entire BedSlide from your truck in minutes (unless you opt to bolt the BedSlide in).

WeatherDeck Bedslide

This bedslide is constructed with welded steel, painted finish, 4 sealed roller bearings, 3 locking positions with a twist T-handle, and black ABS side rails. The deck, however, is a 3/4″ 7-ply marine-grade plywood laminated, both top and bottom, for maximum weather resistance. The product is trademarked as TufDec by Spectrum and was designed for outdoor stages. We cover the plywood with a 1/4″ skid-resistant, recycled rubber mat — the most durable surface we offer. The Standard WeatherDeck will hold up to 1,200 pounds of evenly distributed weight. Best yet, is our mounting system. Once the BedSlide is installed, two people can easily remove the entire BedSlide from your truck in minutes.

Contractor Grade Bedslide

bedslide_contractorThe Contractor Grade is new and different from our prior CG version. This CG is designed for utility use. No frills here, just a simple workhorse! The Std CG has welded steel reinforcements, 8 sealed steel roller bearings, a weight capacity of 1,200 pounds, 3 locking positions, a painted finish (new), and bare 3/4″ plywood (nood), overlaid with 1/4″ rubber mat. This is simple and more economical for the contractor or utility user who doesn’t need all the fancy stuff…just the ability to use the truck as it was intended. We have added this version due to popular request from contractors.
