I Needed to Move, So I Loaded Up My Entire Apartment onto the Back of My Tesla Cybertruck

A new video shows a Cybertruck owner loading up his entire apartment on a Tesla Cybertruck bed. In one go, the Cybertruck owner was able to transport mattresses, tables, chairs, curtains, and several other household items using his Cybertuck.

There are a lot of people who don’t consider the Cybertruck as a real truck. Even people who admire the vehicle’s looks and technology say that the Cybertruck is not a truck meant to do a real job.

Yes, up until now, what we’ve seen is celebrities driving their Cybertrucks to grocery shops or to pick up their children from school. However, as the Cybertruck grows in popularity, it is starting to get into the hands of regular people, and these individuals are using it to do regular truck work.

A particularly compelling example of the Cybertruck's fundamental truck capabilities was shared on Facebook. The owner of this Cybertruck is the administrator of a Spanish Facebook page with a staggering 2.7 million followers.

Directly translated from Spanish, his Facebook group’s name is “Do it Yourself Construction,” and looking at his videos, this individual posts instructional content showing people how to do construction jobs on their own.

What better person to show off the Cybertruck’s real truck capabilities than someone who works in construction and teaches people how to do things by themselves for a living, right?

Surprisingly, despite the Cybertruck owner's field of work, what was most noteworthy about his particular use of the Cybertruck was when he used it to load up what seemed like an entire apartment on the back of the Cybertruck.

As you can see in the video, this particular individual wanted to move some furniture, and the Cybertruck was able to load up his entire house in one go.

The Cybertruck is simultaneously loaded with two large mattresses, couches, chairs, tables, curtains, and other household items.

Since Tesla shrunk the Cybertruck’s size after showing off the original prototype in 2019, there were concerns that it might be too small to do the job of a full-sized pickup truck.

However, according to Tesla’s Chief Designer Franz von Halzhausen, the Cybertruck bed was designed to fit an 8-foot by 4-foot plywood, and it appears that, in this particular case, the size of the Cybertruck bed has been put to full use.

It’s important to note that the Cybertruck can only fit an 8-foot plywood with the bed open. However, when the tailgate is closed, the Cybertruck’s bed length measures 6 feet, which is the minimum bed length for a full-sized truck.

The Cybertruck’s large bed size was important in this case; however, the Cybertruck can also haul more stuff than most trucks in its weight class.

Although lower than Tesla's initially quoted 4000 lbs figure shared in 2019, the Cybertruck can still carry 2500 on the bed, which is enough to satisfy most users' needs.

We doubt that the loaded furniture weighs 2500 lbs; however, the shape of the truck bed might make the Cybertruck surprisingly useful for moving purposes.

Tesla calls the Cybertruck bed the “Vault.” Unlike virtually all trucks, which have regular two-box designs, the Cybertruck has a triangular shape, with side skirts covering most of the truck bed.

Because of this design, some individuals have criticized the Cybertruck, saying it’s difficult to access the truck bed from the side; however, when loading multiple items with varying shapes, the Cybertruck’s side sails play an unexpectedly helpful role in keeping everything inside the bed.


Another advantage of the Cybertruck’s vault is that it gives the vehicle a massive, lockable storage area. Because of the Cybertruck side sails, the tonneau cover goes up higher and all the way to the Cybertruck roof, massively increasing the volume of the Cybertruck vault.

This is impressive. For individuals who are still not convinced the Cybertruck is a real truck, the same Do It Yourself Construction page has other videos in which the owner uses his Cybertruck for his construction job.

In one of the videos, you can see the Cybertruck owner attaching a trailer to the Cybertruck and transporting massive construction materials to a job site.

The Cybertruck is officially rated to tow 11,000 lbs, which is more than enough for 90 percent of use cases.

Overall, it's nice to see the Cybertruck being used for more than running errands in the city. We’ll be sure to keep you posted on the different use cases when the Cybertruck becomes more widely available.

I have seen crash test of the Cybertruck at varying speeds over 40 mph and the truck literally explodes. Why isn't anyone concerned about those results?

It surprised me to see someone who could afford a cybertruck, had almost no possessions…
Anyone else perplexed by this oxymoron?
