    So I have seen this online before but can’t remember the name or find it again. Help is appreciated! It is basically a canvas or tarp that goes from the end of the tailgate when it is down to the bottom of the glass on the camper with the the glass closed. Adds about 18” and still keeps the rain out. Can anyone help with the name or something similar so I can find it? Thanks again!

    UPDATE... it is called a Footbox and only sold on Amazon. Does anyone have any experience with these? Seems a little expensive at $100 for a fancy tarp

    I use the DAC Truck tent with my Snuptop Rebel on my 5 ft bed. Since I have a Prinsu TopRack (which increases the size of the shell so to speak), I went with the "Full Size" version of there DAC tent (https://dactent.com/products/dac-da2-full-size-truck-cap-tent) and I also utilize the awning poles from the SoftTopper Truck Tent accessories to really maximize the front entry way (https://www.softopper.com/accessories-parts/camper-tent). Softtopper had no problem selling me the poles seperate from the kit. The combo makes for a perfect fit.

    Not mine but a pic of what the DAC tent looks like...this is the medium:

    When I google topper lift, I get a lot of results for garage lifts to remove and store toppers, nothing for something in place on the truck for camping. Thanks for being awesome though

    Any reason you chose the DAC over the softtopper? I’m looking into getting one of these. Thanks

    How do you like this thing? What is the quality like, ease to setup, etc? Anything you would like to see where this thing falls short? Considering adding one of these myself, appreciate any feedback!
