    Hi Reno,
    I have an old (ca late 90's) canvas tent that was designed by an old member of the CA 4WD Association. It works pretty much like a roof top tent but was designed to go on top of a 1/4 military trailer. The part on top the trailer is the bed and just like a rooftop tent it has a side bedroom that drops to the ground. I do not have any pictures of it in action and cannot find any online. It is constructed of heavy duty canvas cloth and the whole thing probably weighs 200 pounds.

    Here is a shot of how it was mounted.


    It is in good shape except a couple small holes in the canvas. It could be repaired if you can sew and seal the patches. I doubt this would work on a typical rack for a tacoma since it would be too high for the side bedroom which was designed for the height of the trailer. You could cut the stitching on the floor and add an extension though. It is at my storage locker in south reno. I could meet you there to take a look at it.

    Free to a good home for the first one to respond to this post. PM won't count.

    That’s a sweet trailer... have always wanted one. I know that’s not what you’re wanting to part with. Just a compliment on a nice piece of equipment

    I'll take it. Maybe it'll get me motivated to finish my trailer.

    You are welcome. I had young ones around when I first got it. Lots of good family memories. Glad to see that will continue.

    Hey guys, I have one of these, brand new in box I don't need since I got my camper shell.

    https://www.thule.com/en-us/roof-rack/truck-and-van-racks/thule-tracrac-tracone-_-27000xt

    Here's the Amazon link, my has slightly different mounting bolts up top than what's currently on the main website https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003DMFDM2/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8

    Also have the mounting kit for the 3rd gen tacomas that uses the bed accessory rails.

    Should work on just about any pickup truck

    $300 OBO?

    Hey Reno. Does anybody want a set of stock diff gears from my 2018 Tacoma? Only 5k miles. I went to 4.88. I don’t care if you only take them to put on Ebay. I am moving and don’t have room. If not they go to recyclers.

    And yes the Supercharged 4Wheelin4Banger is a lot more fun than the 4Wheelin4Banger
    Ask Eric @RelentlessFab
