    Hello,

    My last Toyota was a 1978 with an aluminum camper shell. I had no problem getting a custom made one in Winston-Salem. Now I am in the Northeast and cannot find a dealer for an aluminum camper shell.

    I would like to get one with side windows and a rack to hold 4 X 8 sheets of wood. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Tacoma access cab 2011 -- silver.

    Thanks!

    Bill

    No idea on an aluminum camper shell. The fiberglass one on my PreTaco has had a lot of weight on it (not sure how much).

    look on craigs list: was looking for a fiberglass cap and there seemed to be a fair share of aluminum "contractor" caps on there.
