Tailgate In Comfort With The Tailgate Couch

Posted by Dave On March - 9 - 2009

Tailgate Couch HottiesTailgating is all about enjoying yourself away from home but with as many comforts of home as possible. Folding camping chairs are the standard when it comes to tailgate party seating but they are not super comfortable. Lugging your entire sofa set or your Barcalounger to the tailgating lot is unfeasible. They are too big, too heavy and too bulky. But now there is a way to be super comfortable while tailgating and all you need is a pick-up truck tailgate and the Tailgate Couch. (Click on any image for larger view.)

As you can see from the images below, the Tailgate Couch converts any full sized truck tailgate into a comfortable couch. I tested it out for myself and I found the Tailgate Couch to be very comfortable and heavy duty while being extremely lightweight and easy to set up. I am a pretty big dude weighing about 285 at the time the above photo was taken. You can see that the back of the Tailgate Couch easily supports my weight. My friend, whose truck we tested the Tailgate Couch out on, weighs in the 225 range. We both sat on the Tailgate Couch simultaneously and leaned back on the back of the couch. It supported both of our weight no problem. That’s over 500 pounds combined and the Tailgate Couch handled it flawlessly. So no worries if you normally tailgate with “Big Wally” who has a rib and doughnut eating fetish. The Tailgate Couch will probably be able to handle him too.

Another added benefit of the Tailgate Couch is that it is a chick magnet. Seriously, if given the choice of sitting on a hard metal tailgate or on the soft comfort of the Tailgate Couch, I am betting all the women will opt for choice No. 2. I hate to stereotype but I am willing to bet on this.

Before you discount the Tailgate Couch as a glorified futon cushion removed from the wooden frame, this item is specifically designed to fit on the tailgate of a pick-up truck. (The Tailgate Couch doesn’t fit “step side” or “flair side” models. If your tailgate is 5 feet wide, the Tailgate Couch will fit.) The cargo strap that is used while the unit is set up on tailgate is also used to secure the unit in the folded position for storage and transportation. The strap doubles as a handle to carry it to and from your tailgate. The Tailgate Couch will fold completely flat and can be used as a bed and fits between the wheel wells of a pickup truck bed. That’s good news for your overindulgent tailgating friends who may need a little nap time before kick-off if they hit the margaritas too hard.

Here are some other detailed specs:

  • The Tailgate Couch weighs less than 20 pounds.
  • The Tailgate Couch is washable. Just remove the foam cushions, hand wash using cold water and line dry.
  • The Tailgate Couch is made of durable materials for a long life.
  • The Tailgate Couch cover is made of a high quality nylon material that is both stain and water resistant. The same material used to make high quality backpacks.
  • Each cushion of the Tailgate Couch measures 22 inches by 30 inches with a 3 inch foam pad and 4 cushions per couch.
  • When folded into a cube for transportation/storage, the Tailgate Couch measures 22 inches x 30 inches x 12 inches.
  • The Tailgate Couch has a 1 year limited warranty.

  4. Think you got an amazing product- nice to huddle on during the cold season, and nice to snuggle on at the drive-in….mmmmmmmmmm

    Nicole, Drive-ins? Where are there still drive-in movie theaters? Good idea though. I just wish there were drive-ins by me to go and use this.

  6. Shannon, I don’t know where you’re from, but they are all over. The one I go to is in Independence, MO right off 291. There is a really cool website called City-Data.com, you can ask on there where the drive-ins are in your town.

    But do you have one of these couches? They are amazing. They sit up, lie down, and easy to fold up and store. Two thumbs up!!

    Got a tailgate couch and L-O-V-E it! One thing I’ve noticed too is that it has no problems with any kind of weather. We had at least 3 people on the couch comfortably at any given time. Really was a comfortable day at the game that time!

  8. John says:

    Plenty of Drive-in’s still left standing in the midwest, what can we say, it’s always “old school” around here. Also nice if you like to shoot the shotgun off the back of the tailgate while “hunting” with the boys…
