    Depends on the truck. If it's a 3rd gen it might fit, if its a 2nd, there's not enough room.

    Yes, they posted some photos in Iggy's other thread of people sitting on the front of the camper overhang and there was clearly very minimal deflection. I'm guessing the roof is fine to have a 200lb person walking on it semi-regularly.

    That’s good, being able to mount/carry some gear up there is key.

    Good to know more info on these.

    Concealed lift struts and adjustable latches! - Minor details that I'm glad you guys thought of! I'm glad the latches are adjustable in order to accommodate extra linens/pillows and weather (I imagine cold days to be a PITA with fixed latches). Also the concealed lift struts is major so that debris is minimized which should equate to longer life expectancy of the struts.

    Yes! It’s not something we recommend anyone doing, but we did it to prove the strength of the one piece design. Here’s a pic of Phil standing right in the middle of it and there’s no deflection.
