November 1, 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.
