Companies are coming out with all the time, like this incredible , but the newest creation to catch our eye is a major upgrade of the classic "redneck swimming pool." People have been filling the back of their pickup trucks with water for a long time, but now, the leaky, flimsy tarps are being replaced with a thin, vinyl liner that conforms perfectly to the shape of your truck bed.
Known as , you simply pull the elastic liner over the corners of your truck, then filled with water. From there, your new pool is ready to go, whether you're setting it up for a tailgate party, summer barbecue, campout or just a day of relaxation at home. And when you're ready to drain the pool, there's a valve located by the tailgate that'll let all the water out.
The liners come in two sizes: 5.5 feet for a short box pool ($249) and 6.5 feet for a standard box pool ($269). To figure out what size you need, measure the inside of your truck bed from the bulkhead to the tailgate.
While this pickup pool is portable, the truck shouldn't be driven while there's water or occupants in the back. It's also important to check the payload specifications for your make and model of truck to ensure it can handle the weight of water and people at once.
Pick-Up Pools is a veteran-owned, country-born business that was started in 2015 in Sherwood, Arkansas. Air Force pilot Tommy Prestella runs the company with his sister, Diana, and told CountryLiving.com that his first order of pools, which are 100 percent made in America, sold out almost faster than he could make them. But if you're interested in picking up one of these Pick-Up Pools for yourself, don't fret — more pools will be available throughout the and Amazon Prime this summer.
