What is the gap between cabover and cab? What flat beds are people using on the Tacoma and is it possible to built from the frame up?
At this price point, I am *very* interested...
Likewise I am VERY interested at that price point. Ideally I personally would like something like an XP V2 to fit on a 1/2 ton truck (like my F150) - the smaller trucks are too small for my family of four + dog, and the big 3/4 tons I don't need for the rest of the year when I'm not camping. I'd be ok with converting to flatbed if necessary.
My requirements are that it would have to sleep two adults plus two children comfortably. I don't need or want an indoor kitchen, I never cook inside in bear country/animal country anyway. Kitchen slideout would be perfect. No problem with rearranging a few things to 'set up' the sleeping area at night. My current FWC Hawk is just a little too tight for the four of us so I want a bit more space/less weight than the Hawk (and I'd like to find much better build quality....
Is that realistic? I was starting to think about putting $$ away for the regular XP but if something in-between, a bit more affordable, and useable on a smaller vehicle is in the offing then it might make more sense, as $40k plus the cost of a new 3/4 ton truck is stratospheric. The only downside I can think of is that I wouldn't be able to have my plan of bringing along a small motorcycle on a hitch carrier, as the vehicle couldn't handle it, and the door would be obstructed.
Exciting news, Marc! I really like what you're doing with these campers.
