@Hoover77 I see you found the thread. Do you have any other pics you’re looking for or anything?
Yeah I guess I missed it somehow, do you know if they’ll be making a version for the 6 foot bed?
I’m pretty sure they already do. It’s on their site under specs. What truck are you looking to outfit?
whats the total weight (empty, no gear) of the canopy/tent?
2004 Tacoma extended cab
Oh yeah. I’m sure they offer that size.
Any pics of the inside of the tent area? I’m guessing there is a bunk in there?
That’s quite an overhang over the cab... any issues with flex, or with the cap wanting to flip up at the tail gate end when there is weight forward in the bunk?
Yeah I have an inside pic somewhere. The bed platform is over the cab and sticks out into the truck bed portion about 8 inches. It's on struts as well so you lift it up out of the way if need.
I can hang off the front corner and barely move it. The whole top of the lower section is one piece that's welded into the back. You can feel a little movement when you're up top but mostly from the suspension. I think that's because most of your weight is over the back the cab/front of the camper. I haven't noticed any lift at the tailgate. It's bolted to the bed rails on 3 sides. I hope all of that makes sense.
I would be right into this camper....if it offered a version with NO TENT (I hate tents......prefer to see whats around me at all times, from my bivvy bag). and just a solid flat platform up top (tough enough to have several people standing, sitting,sleeping on plus hear lashed to the top. )
I figure the weight would drop about 75 - 100 lbs too.
