Check out the new Sport Truck Tent from Napier Tents. Fits perfectly and not too bad on putting up.
Yeah I would like to see a practical, cool looking as well as something that can be removed easily that uses some form of an elevated system from the flat bed and uses the roof for additional space... I am basically looking for the Wayout concept LOL
LOL, I don't have a point on my head and fortunately still have both legs, and am 6'6.or if you're sharp enough to understand the corner to corner measurement is 81.39 inches inside the bed............... 6 ft 9 inches plus.......inside usable space 55 inches by 60 inches roughly
See you're focused on the drawer system, which I don't have and looks to be about the most inefficient use of the bed imaginable. A box in a box is not very space efficient, I would speculate that you lose 30% of the bed capacity at a minimum.above bed drawer system, below rack, not sure i want to ground camp at Glacier National park in the winter, and saving the money from a RTT maybe I can talk myself into a Rubicon.
I have many of the same concerns and a similar purpose. Mine will be used as a long distance commuter (TX to AK) and tourer.true, building off the storage system need and trying to avoid rtt cost and weight and aerodynamic lack, looked at flatbeds and diamondback racks too, and checked out some canopy setups.
luckily mine will be cash paid off so no financing cost and a bit of budget to outfit it without getting ridiculous
need to be able to go through trip to glacier then settle in to sw u.s travel and rock hounding.
Once the glacier trip is over, a warmer climate to explore for me.
Somebody will make a nice shell for it, and it will be much less than starting over with a flat bed. Your small enough(not a dig) that you probably can use the back for sleeping. Have a canvas shop build a tent annex that would attach to the shell, maybe add one of the 180* awnings and your in there.imagine i'll take the bed off as i look into this more and more, look for a flatbed set up
