That's definitely an improvement.
Thanks to all the great posts and photos; our new Flip Pac is on order!! We've modified and outfitted various trailers in the past, and turned a Little Guy Teardrop into a sweet rockin' surf shack. Most recently, we spent some time with a SylvanSport GO, a great, versatile utility/camping trailer. We're just trying to configure our camping setup to be ready to go at a moment's notice, and the FP seems like the best combination.
Putting the cart before the horse, we've started making sketches and building parts on the computer so we can try out different configurations for the truck bed (thanks, Doc, for the inspiration!). We're also looking at the equipment on hand and making decisions on what needs to be upgraded and acquired. Can't wait to build in some solar power! We've seen photos of FP's with interior and exterior lights; question: does the FP come with these lights, or are they a special order? We have a stock '06 Tacoma access cab, V6, 6-ft. bed. We're not planning on making any extreme off-road expeditions, but still wondering if there's anything we should do before the FP is installed. Here is the first sketch and photo of the truck.

I recommend that you upgrade your suspension with something like Old Man Emu Dakars in the rear and 886's up front. Once you add the shell you will continue to add weight with house stuff, the truck will drive much better and feel safer/more stable with stiffer springs. You'll need to counter the "turtle effect", trust me.
Air bags will work but I do not recommend air bag systems for technical terrain in 4WD. YMMV. No idea what the "inside overhang edge" is that you speak of.
