How Adrian Steel’s Extendobed Transforms Your Truck into a Mobile Workshop

With the phasing out of compact cargo vans, contractors have begun migrating towards pickup trucks instead of full-size vans. Adrian Steel has developed a full suite of modular truck shelving and accessories to transform your truck into a mobile workshop. The Extendobed is at the heart of their truck shelving packages – a bed sliding platform that eliminates the need to reach inside your truck bed.

Adrian Steel has specialized in work truck and van equipment for decades, and their latest line of products has continued to show why they are one of the most trusted names in the industry. In this article, we'll go over everything you need to know about the Extendobed, and how it's helping contractors streamline their workflow and stay organized.

Adrian Steel Extendobed

Adrian Steel's new commercial-grade bed sliding platform lets you access the deepest parts of your truck by fully sliding out to you. It's easily operated with a heavy-duty latch – simply lift to unlock, slide, and grab what you need.

The Extendobed gives you complete access to your bed by extending past your taillights which can reduce the likelihood of expensive accidents. It's constructed of a fully-welded steel frame and 2 3/8" high-capacity roller bearings that support a 1,200 lb. weight capacity. Best of all, it is backed by an impressive 20-year Limited Warranty, ensuring years of use.

  • Extension Past Taillights
  • Heavy-Duty Construction

Extendobed HVAC Package

Adrian Steel HVAC Extendobed Package

The Extendobed HVAC Package was designed from the ground up for HVAC technicians. This convenient setup allows for your tanks, pumps, and hoses, to be readily accessible. With the Extendobed's full extension, you can decrease the risk of a back injury when hauling your heavy tanks and equipment. Like all bed slide shelving and packages, they should be paired with a truck cap to ensure your cargo stays safe and secure.

Adrian Steel also offers a truck shelving package optimized for Electricians. This setup will help organize your hardware, conduits, and cables while leaving space for extra cargo like Milwaukee Packouts. The basic Electrician Package features plenty of bins and hooks to keep your workspace tidy and easily accessible. 

Overall, we love the flexibility that the Extendobed offers. It's a great way to reduce workplace accidents and stay organized. It is currently available for the following vehicles:
