I have a 98 Toyota Tacoma with a free basic thin walled aluminum canopy. I doubt the canopy can hold a roof top tent. I was thinking about getting the allpro packrack thing which solves my concern with weight on the cheap free canopy I have.
However, I like that I can store things in the canopy! I am wondering, has anyone build a skeleton around their canopy for a roof top tent or something with weight. Is it worth it.
If not, are there some GOOD storage solutions out there for carrying all your camping gear out in the open? I am worried about easy access to all my gear from people etc.
