I have not seen this posted but it appears that fwc is developing a minimalistic camper for those who either like that or are concerned about weight...

M stands for millennial. It is their target demo for these things. Should be Project - D for dust.

That was my first thought when I saw that. Also no insulation against the metal or in my case composite bed. Add to that all the built in drain holes on truck beds.

We’re working on a couple things to help keep the dust out. But we’ll really see how the campers preform once we have 30-40 out on the back roads camping around. The first models we built were OK, but the engineers are working on improving the rear hatch door before full production happens soon.

Looks like a great lightweight option to me.  Sure beats a lot of things I have camped in over the years.

If those had been avail. 7 years back, I would have one instead of my Hawk(which I do like mucho). It would have been a better set up on my first gen Tundra, which has been replaced with a F250.

I like this.  I can put a quad or motorcycle in the bed and have a place to sleep at night without having to tow a trailer.  It does mean I would have to remove the toys before bedtime, but that only takes a few minutes.

 

Hopefully they leave enough room between the mattress and the roof to pre-make a bed.

I like the concept...you can still use your truck as a truck. But I too, am concerned about dust. As demonstrated by several toppers I’ve owned, the tailgate will always be the culprit; and I like using my tailgate for all sorts of tasks. But if this unit were built with barn doors and a frame that sealed the rear I might be tempted to pull out the checkbook.

Looks to me that it's an FWC that won't overload a Tacoma.  My experience with a Ranger II on a Dakota taught me not to overload my truck, especially for those Baja backroads.  Sealing the dust out would be good.   Also 9 grand for basically a shell is a little high I think.
