    I had a camper in my 06. It had roll up soft sides for the top and weighed about 1300 lbs loaded. You need to watch the center of gravity in your bed. I also installed air springs that really helped. The truck handled it all great. Sorry I sold both.

    I have an ARE MX Series shell and love it. If you spend any time crawling around or sleeping in the bed of the truck, the extra head room you get from this mid-rise shell will be much appreciated. I have a platform built in the bed using the bedside supports and that extra few inches makes it more comfortable to sit and move around in the bed of the truck (also lets me carry larger objects)

    Here's the platform:
