Looks like a truck bed, not a TC bed.

When I read "TC bed" in the title, I thought of the ultimate mattress for a truck camper, not a truck bed.

I saw this as well, they truly did think of almost everything. You put your TC in the back of it, if you didn't know that already. Trouble is the cost. I called them and a basic unit without all the extras, of which there are many, was $12K. That is in the ballpark for a custom made utility bed.

This unit is a bit more versatile than a utility bed, but personally I wouldn't want to sink that kind of money in truck that I would have to part with if and when I sold that truck.

Sounds like you've been serious about sleeping on it?
What I see as potential problem with the linked bed is putting camper some distance behind the cabin. Is it 16" or 2 feet?
That with heavy camper like Host, will do bad trick with COG.
Than using the storages for stuff, I think this bed would apply to 5500/550 series truck only if you really want to use it.

If you upgrade to a newer truck with the same needs, you can take the bed with you. You started with a cab and chassis right?
Full disclosure...teally like the Douglass beds!
