Is it safe to assume that the typical pop up is always wider than the trucks there designed for? obviously one thats wider on a tacoma is about the same width as a tundra and such. but the one for a tundra is usually wider. right?
is this different among the different manufacturers?
the reason i ask. i am getting a 75 chevy short bed. i plan to ditch the bed, buy a FWC or similar, and build a flat-bed for it. i am not rolling in money, so the whole plan will revolve around the best camper i can get. i found a 8' FWC needing a fridge or furnace for $400 the other day, but alas, im not equipt with money for the purchase right now. my limit is absolutely $1500, including building the bed and the toolboxes to fill in the bed rail spaces.
now, this wil get wheeled. not HARD necessarily, but the chance it will is better than not. and i always build my junk capable of Holy Cross Trail. So i think i will benefit from a pop-up thats a similar width as the truck. should i be looking for a mini truck version, or the mid size if such a creaure exists?
any and all info/suggestions are much appreciated! i would love to build a hard side to my "specs", but thats just not gonna happen right now.
