Excuse my English, I am French but I will make my possible.
Hello everybody, I am new here and I find your forums very interesting. There are lots of tricks, tips and very useful ideas.
I would like to share an addition that I made to my pickup, a bedslide.
As I pull a Sunline Solaris T1950 the box of my truck is very useful when we travel. But I had enough to have to climb in the box of my truck to get to my tools or camping stuff. A commercial bedslide was a good idea but too expensive, so I made one.
1- I made the guides on both sides with 2x4 and fixe then to the box, this prevents the tray from moving.
2- The tray is made with 2x3 and covered with a 3/4 plywood.
3- There are 15 two inches wheels under the tray.
4- A rope with a hook connects the tray to the end of the box to prevent it from going too far.
5- The trick is to have always two wheels at the same time on the tailgate to avoids the bedslide to fall between the tailgate and the box.
I put the heavy things in the back it stabilize the tray.
The price 125,00$ CDN, and four houres start to finish.
I hope that will give ideas to others.
