I have been toying with the idea of bolting down a tent trailer on top of my truck bed. And would like to get some feedback. There has to be reasons no one is doing this.
It's a 93' dodge full size long bed. There are several reasons it's attractive to me versus a typical slide in pop up truck camper.
1. It's a lot of cabin/camper. A tent trailer with a ten foot box, opening up to approx. twenty feet is a lot of cabin area. Easier to walk around than a truck camper. Not so crampt, more space.
2. I like the open feeling of a tent trailer. When the screens are open, it's, well, a very open feeling.
3. Might be relatively easy. My other option is to go with a pop up truck camper on a flat bed of sorts, with boxes on the sides for storage. Have to take the stock truck bed off, get rid of it, build the flat bed, come up with the boxes, etc. With putting the tent trailer on the back, it's, hypothetically, a matter of building a frame to set the tent trailer box on top of the stock pick up truck bed.
