Holiday shipping issues



Not a particularly interesting topic, but we are approaching the worst time of year to schedule and deliver decks, either singles or in pallet loads.

This year we will stop shipping from December 19th thru January 4th. We have found that shipments suffer unexpected delays and routing issues during those few weeks.  Even when we resume in January, the weather can delay shipments, so don't get your hopes up for a "by Friday" delivery.

As far as I know, the factory will be open and decks can be picked up by customers most days.  PA sales tax is charged for anything picked up at the factory.

That being said, we do have decks in stock and more being produced in December.  At the very least, you can head to Daytona for bike week, nice and warm in your truck and arrived rested and safe with your bikes on your new SuperDeck III.

For what it's worth, we do have decks available in San Diego,  Reno, Chicago, Austin and Denver if you feel like traveling and take advantage of the group shipment rates we have to those locations.

If there is a SuperDeck III in your future, now is a good time to let us know and see if we can save you some cash.

Shoot me an email, text of phone call if we can talk and start working something out.  I take calls into the evening if that's more convenient for you.





If you are concerned about finding an installer, we have had great luck with truck body shops, 4x4 truck supply companies and  tractor shops.  We'll find an installer near you.

Testimonial from RV'er

“Why reinvent the wheel?”

“In my quest for a way to transport our two full-size Harleys on extended summ
er trips, I found the AmeriDeck system. This type of hydraulic loading system was something I had been researching for some time. I had even began conversations with a local welding shop to fabricate such a system for my pickup – but why reinvent the wheel?”
“With our AmeriDeck, SuperDeck III we can haul our Harleys in our 6.5 foot short bed pickup. Then, we can pull our truck behind our motor home. Now, when we set off for a five week long trip we have our bikes and we have enclosed transportation, too. We love the AmeriDeck system, it has plenty of power to load our bikes and it works beautifully. We have been asked about the system so many times that we now keep brochures handy.”
Tom Potter
Satisfied AmeriDeck Customer
The AmeriDeck Hydraulic loading system is the smart solution to increase the versatility and utilization of your pickup. This one-of-a-kind system makes it possible for a full-size pickup to load heavy equipment and cargo from the ground and onto the truck bed with simple push-button operation. Four deck styles are available, including a dump bed variation.

Towing Certification not required!

Although this is a brief message, the implications are massive!

In a recent conversation with the manager of the Professional Towing and Recovery Operators of Illinois we learned that the licensing requirements of the towing industry do not apply for transporting things.  They have determined that he SuperDeck -III PowerDeck is no more of a towing device than is an Econoline Van!.

This opens huge opportunities for individuals to make deliveries and haul motorcycles, quads, golf car(t)s and cargo!

Imagine eliminating the costly insurance required of towing companies!

12/17/18 This just in:  Licensing requirement change in IL:  The first is a new registration for small trucks.
"C" truck plates will be available with a registered weight of 8,001 to 10,000 pounds. The cost for the registration is $118 per year. 
If the registration is being used for personal use, it will not need a safety inspection.
If the vehicle is used commercially it is required to be safety inspected. 

Let us know if you find similar information about your state requirements!

For details contact me directly at 717-620-9676. We have all deck models in stock but delivery from stock can take 5 - 10 days, FOB Hadley, PA.

Why I abandoned my toy hauler...

Why I abandoned my toy hauler for the truck deck.  

Although motorcycle traveling is great fun, weather and distance can leave you arriving at your destination tired and drained. The SuperDeck III, installed on a suitable pickup truck, allows you to travel to your motorcycle destination in comfort.  Although motorcycle traveling is great fun, weather and distance can leave you arriving at your destination tired and drained.  With the bike on the deck you arrive relaxed and ready to engage in your desired activities.




In comparison to a toy hauler, the SuperDeck III has several advantages.   First, and significant, is the cost of a fully contained toy hauler vs the cost of the SuperDeck III and a less expensive camper equivalent to the toy hauler.   Unless your bike needs protection from the elements, the cost of the “garage” section in a conventional toy hauler is unnecessary.  Towing and maneuvering an 18’ camper is much simpler than dealing with a 30+’ toy hauler.


Secondly, most toy haulers use the bike storage area for a second purpose when the bike is not in
place… this is usually space for the kitchen table or additional bunk space.   This space simply isn’t available when the bike(s) are loaded.   Not to mention that a certain amount of gas, oil and grime are there in your living quarters in the toy hauler.


In terms of convenience, the toy hauler scores big again! If you are just taking your bike out to a one-day event, you don’t need the entire camper or a trailer.  Just park the bike on the SuperDeck II and press the UP button.  Head to the event without having to maneuver/unhook or deal with a trailing storage system.  There’s plenty of storage under the deck for your duffel, cooler and tools.


How about safety?  Other than a hydraulic hitch mounted bike carrier, almost any toy hauler or trailer* is going to have a ramp to deal with.   It was one thing to ride my Bultaco trials bike up a 2x6 into the truck bed, but that was 40 years ago with a #190 bike.   Any ramp offers opportunity for error, particularly in snow or rain.  The SuperDeck III is at ground level where it is simple for one person to push or ride a bike into position against the bulkhead and put down the kick stand while the bike is being strapped down.   Pushing a #500 bike up any ramp is usually more than a single individual can safely manage.   Just check the videos on YouTube for any number of “motorcycle ramp loading fails.


  • note:  the Razor brand  trailer has a drop deck.


The other convenient feature of the SuperDeck III is that it has many alternate uses!   From hauling ATV’s, engine blocks, bales of hay or your mom’s sofa, the SuperDeck III puts any load, up to #2,500, into your truck at the touch of a button!


In summary, the Superdeck III covers all the bases.  Safety, comfort, convenience and utility at a fraction of the cost of a toy hauler.  And you can still have access to your truck hitch to tow your camper or more toys!
