Move over, DIYers. Turn your car's interior into your camp bed with the REI Co-op Trailgate Vehicle Sleeping Platform. It includes a foam mattress and frame with adjustable legs for storage beneath.


  • 2 widths available: 25 in. for maximizing gear space beside the platform and 40 in. for maximizing sleep space for two people or pets
  • 3 sets of adjustable legs create a level sleeping surface in a wide range of vehicle sizes, including most outdoor-style wagons and mid- to full-size SUVs
  • Lux plush-topped recycled polyester foam mattress is super comfy and deploys quickly
  • System—including adjustable frame, frame slat covers and foam mattress—breaks down and stows in carry bag for easy transport and at-home storage
  • In the vehicle, the system can be left fully deployed for quick access to a good night's sleep or partially deployed ("in half") for either use of back seats or trunk storage
  • Front legs fit into footwell behind front seats; shorter middle and back legs rest on cargo area floor
  • Front legs are independently adjustable to allow leveling for a hump or wheel well
  • Footwell legs adjust between 20 and 27 in.
  • Rear legs adjust between 7 and 10 in.
  • Front legs can be swapped for the included 3rd set of shorter legs to create a flat, elevated sleeping surface outside of the vehicle or in the bed of a pickup truck
  • Corner straps center pad on platform and keep it from shifting when in use
  • Slat covers and durable pad bottom are made with recycled polyester for a lower impact on the planet
