It is truly a golden age for over-the-top pool floats. Now, joining the ranks of motorized loungers and non-mechanical bulls is The Bestway CoolerZ Big Red Truck. It’s, well, a float that looks like a red truck. It has plenty of space to stretch out as well as one very clever feature: a cooler beneath the hood.
The inflatable flatbed is roughly 9 feet long and 5 feed wide. It has a windshield complete with wipers and wheels that look half-submerged when it’s in the water. There are headlights and a grille on the front, and a license plate printed on the back because hell yeah there is. On the other side of the float, there’s a seating area in what would be the bed of the truck.
Thee real draw here is, of course, is the cooler the secret cooler. Hidden in a compartment hidden under the “hood” that can be filled with ice your favorite beverage. It’s a game changer that’ll let you float around the lake or the pool for hours without needing to run to the fridge or the cooler to get a fresh one.
A floating pickup truck with room for two people and plenty of cold beverages.
The float has room for two to stretch out their legs and lean against the soft backrest. A word of warning: its listed capacity is just 250 pounds, so all but children and the sveltest of adults should stick to a one-person-at-a-time policy.
Besides the novelty of floating around on a drink-laden vessel, this thing seems to be a solid pool float. It weighs 20.4 pounds, which points to the thickness of the material, and has heavy-duty handles.
And don’t worry: there are also two built-in cupholders, so it’s just as convenient to have an open beer on this float as it is to keep the closed ones cold.
