Your Truck Bed Setup?

The wife and I camp out of the back of our truck. It has a standard shell (aka canopy, aka topper) so it's not necessarily made for camping. I've built a sleeping platform, covered the windows and we slide Sterilite bins underneath for storage.

Have you done something similar in the back of your truck? I'd like to see people's setups and glean ideas perhaps. Please tell me about it and post pics if you are able. :-)

I think I know what you're talking about. Those are slick. The advantage of sleeping in the back of a truck is that my truck totally blends in. Those Volks buses do not. I can pass under the radar and nobody's the wiser. At this point in my life that means a lot!
