What's in your truck bed?

Just recently switched from suburban to a pick up. Getting a tonneau cover but wondering what everyone keeps in the truck bed and how they keep things organized. Thinking about getting some bins for things like bike equipment, another one for wood, another for hitch stuff. How do you do it?

I use my pickup almost exclusively for towing the camper. I bought a cap for it, so I can leave a lot of the gear in it. (got tired of moving stuff out of the bed to the garage and vice versa before and after each trip!)

In the bed I have 2 bikes, an EZ Up, Two bins that I fill with firewood before each trip (Shhh ), a fold-up wagon, beach/sand chairs and folding chairs for around the campfire, Ladder golf game, along with a few miscellaneous pool toys (noodles, float etc). Also a box for all the towing gear, WDH bar, blocks of wood for the tongue jack, etc.

Rail mount tool box across front. Large plastic storage box filling space between tool box and hitch that's used for firewood. Small plastic box I use for assortment of boards for leveling and under stabilizers.

My truck bed tends to get all the dirty stuff (other than the sewer goods that travel under the trailer in a "fence post mod"). Typical for me would be firewood, kindling, Andersen Levelers, wheel chocks, sand toys for the young one, more often than not the fresh water hose, and sometimes the power cord (when wet). On the rare occasion we boondock, the generator and gas will be in the truck bed also. Like others I have a lockable cover (Retrax Pro roll back) and just leave everything loaded when not camping.

Oh...and don't forget the most important item...the trailer hitch....kinda hard to tow our 5th wheel without it!

Mine also gets the dirty stuff I don't want in the trailer. I put the patio mat in it and all the Lynx Levelers and the wheel chocks. Fishing cooler goes in the bed, too. Generator goes in if we are dry camping. Boat goes on rack on top.

I do keep the chairs in the TT bunks while underway cause I like to keep them clean.

have a topper on mine and a bed-slide (handiest thing since pockets in a shirt IMO).. load grills/griddles/propane in there. firewood when i can carry it around (maybe a bag of pinion wood blocks as well when I can).. tool box, floor jack & stands and a couple cross-bars for my roof-rack when i need to carry those longer items!! Gen case (pelican packed with 2 honda's).. and gas cans for boon-docking (or NASCAR camping).. and the BIG cooler for the longer trips. Having that cap ALMOST makes the pu like the suburban i used to pull with!

We're heading out west after Goshen and will have the generator, jerry can, lawn chairs, firewood, sat dish and some extra clothes.

I'm still kind of new to this but in my truck bed I keep the cooler that is almost exclusively for soda and beer, pop up, a bin with miscellaneous stuff, bikes, lantern, and anything else that gets forgotten at the last minute
