Pickup Pools – cute mobile swimming pool lets you splash and go

pickuppool

Look portable is all the rage nowadays. Everything’s got to be mobile, from phones to fireplaces, so why not go the whole hog and make your swimming pool portable as well? At least that’s clearly the thinking from this enterprising company. Pickup Pools combines two marvelous inventions in one – the flatbed truck and water borne frolics.

The result is a swimming pool you can take with you wherever you go. Backyard BBQs? No problem. Tailgating before the game and need to cool down a bit? Ditto. Anywhere you can drive your truck, you can have your pool, although in some locations it might be a bit of a problem to fill the thing with water. We do not advise driving around with a flatbed full of H2O for obvious reasons.

The thing is made of 30 mm vinyl, just like a conventional inflatable pool, and it’s available in both 5.5 and 6.5 foot sizes depending on your truck size. Just insert into the truck and fill with water. There’s no news as to whether you can buy a truck with the pool, but we suspect that might cause a few problems with delivery. Anyhoo, the product is available now at prices starting at $189.
