Metcam Announces Release of TramBed 2.0, the World’s Most Helpful Commercial Truck Bed Extension Print E-mail
Written by Metcam   
Wednesday, 12 October 2016

October 13, 2016 (Alpharetta, GA)–Metcam, a fabricator of sheet metal components and assemblies for OEMs, today announced the debut of TramBed 2.0. TramBed is an ingenious, patented commercial truck bed extender—the industry’s first truck bed extension with legs.
“TramBed provides a practical solution that truck owners have long needed, but that has not traditionally been available,” said Metcam President Bruce Hagenau. “As an award-winning fabricator, it only made sense for Metcam to produce and market this sensible innovation.”

TramBed has a unique design that enables truck owners to slide the TramBed out and brace it with adjustable legs. The legs keep the extension stable, supporting even the heaviest loads—and even allowing the TramBed to be used as an in-field work surface.

The newest version of TramBed builds on the groundbreaking original, providing safety, functionality and efficiency improvements that make it even more valuable to truck owners. Additionally, manufacturing innovations have enabled Metcam to lower the price, compared to the original model.

Key features of TramBed 2.0 include:
• Supports up to 2,000 lbs. (for an eight-foot truck bed; versions are available for other bed lengths) with little to no stress on the truck’s suspension.
• Heavy-duty construction with all stainless steel deck and factory-welded, powder-painted extension rails and legs.
• Easy-slide extension with a specialized design to reduce potential for finger-pinching and ensure tram extension remains in a controlled position.
• Works perfectly with a forklift.
• Extends 20 percent further than any other truck bed extender.
• Completely pre-assembled and ready for rapid installation.
• Shipping included in the continental U.S.A.
“Metcam has always prided itself on fabricating the highest-quality products for its customers, and we bring that same dedication to our own designs,” said Hagenau. “For this reason, we are continually evaluating our products to see how we can make them even better.”
