For decades, truck owners have been figuring out ways to fill their beds with water and create mobile pools or even jacuzzis in some cases. But rather than DIY’ing it, there is a better way to make your Ford truck a cool place to hang out this summer, and it comes to us in the form of the Keystone Light (yes, that Keystone Light) truck bed pool. For the mere cost of $250, you too can transform your Ford truck into the envy of the neighborhood, as well as a nice place to sit and relax when the mercury climbs.
Keystone has partnered with Realtree to create a limited-edition line of camouflaged products, including of course, this particular pool. It’s a cool piece of kit that measures in at 66x62x21 inches, and Keystone even says that it can double as a beer cooler for those tailgating or camping trips.
However, the pool’s size makes it suitable for a particular type of pickup – ones with a 5.5-foot bed like the Ford F-150 in most cases. It’s a bit too large for the Ford Maverick, which has a 4.5-foot bed, though we imagine that one could use a bed extender and figure out how to make it work. Either way, it’s big enough to fit a couple of adults or around four younger folks, though when filled with water, it’s going to be so heavy that you won’t want to have to move it around, and will definitely want to consider your truck’s max payload ratings beforehand.
Regardless, Keystone also notes that if you don’t want to use your new pool as a pool, it’s also capable of holding over 3,000 beers, which is good to know. Obviously no one needs to tote around that many adult beverages, but then again, nobody really needs a truck bed pool, either. But it isn’t always about what we need, but rather what we want, isn’t it?
