Lots of cars have trunks, but this isn't a feature that you'd typically associate with a pickup truck. It's important to realize, however, that some trucks are equipped with this feature. In certain models, you'll find a trunk that is situated in the bed. An in-bed trunk is a feature many prospective truck owners look for, so if you're starting to look for trucks for sale, it's worthwhile to keep an eye out for this feature. Regardless of how you plan to use the vehicle, there's a good chance that you'll find a use for the trunk. Here are some reasons to choose a pickup truck that has a trunk.

More Storage Space

While the bed of your new pickup truck will offer you a lot of storage space, it never hurts to have more room to store whatever you're carrying. An in-bed trunk will provide extra space. For example, if you're packing your truck for an upcoming camping trip, you may have a large volume of things that you need to take with you. While you'll need to fill the bed with large items such as tents, recreational gear, and more, you'll be able to place smaller items in the extra storage space that the in-bed trunk provides.

Clean Space

The bed of a pickup truck can often get dirty when you're carrying certain things. While it's good to clean out the bed whenever you can, the reality is that you might not always have time to do this. You'll appreciate your in-bed trunk because it will remain clean even if the bed is dirty. For example, if you've recently carried several rolls of sod for your yard, the bed of the truck will be filled with dirt particles. If you're making a grocery run afterward, you won't want to put your grocery bags in the dirty bed. The in-bed trunk will be a perfect spot to place the grocery bags because this space will be clean.

Secure Space

If you have to park your truck in a public area for a while, you may be reluctant to leave items sitting in the bed where someone might grab them. This can be a good time to use the truck's in-bed trunk, as your items will be out of sight of anyone who walks past the truck. Anyone looking to grab things out of vehicles will see that your truck bed is empty without realizing that the in-bed trunk is filled with your items.
