    That's what I am thinking. I have a small hardside(1990's Shadow Cruiser) that is 1300 dry, and I add about 600lbs of gear so about about the same as you but that extra couple feet + roof accessories I can tell on fire roads. If my 3/4 ton diesel truck with airbags is rocking...I just imagine that a Tundra will feel like it's gonna tilt over.

    I bought a 8.5' popup camper for my 3/4T diesel with 8' bed for the lower centre of gravity on mountain switchbacks and better stability in high cross-winds at highway speeds.
    I had front leaf springs added (turns out with the 1000lb diesel engine and under bed overhang storage, the front axle supports more weight than rear) and a front and rear Kelderman Air Ryde air bag suspension.

    this has probably been discussed a here a few times. Since I am going to order today thought I would get other opinions. Should I go with the propex 2000 heater or a cheap diesel heater. am going to have a propane stove so have that fuel available. Cost is not really an issue. More concerned bout reliability and parts if needed repairs. The diesel heaters are cheap enough to be remove and replace.

    Unless your rig is a diesel, I'd probably go propex simply to avoid a 3rd fuel source. Will your propane stove be plumbed in?

    yes that is why I was leaning towards propex.

    The disposable price of a cheap Chinese heater doesn't do you any good when it disposes itself in the middle of the night in a ski area parking lot. Get the Propex.

    Very nice. Do you know if they provide a bigger cab over for a four door with a shorter bed?

    Saw a 4-door 2015 Tundra getting installed right before mine. Looks like the cabover is longer on the 4-door so the actual sleeping space is the same between the two trucks.

    Ski RV's, who's sleeping in parking lots?

    Maybe this should go in the GOTOS thread??

    That looks awesome congrats. Basically what I would get myself if I ever graduate from the outback.
    Let us know if that thing gets super hot inside on sunny days. From the sun. Not from hotbox.
    When you get it all sorted out share the interior. I think a black light and a Led Zeppelin stairway to heaven poster on black felt.

    I don't think it will get too bad. Wisely, the entire roof is white to reflect away some of the heat. I'll have to brainstorm some build out ideas now. I want to keep it pretty minimalist. A small kitchen bench type area for the stove, little counter area, ski storage underneath, some kind of small seating area, and a chinese diesel heater setup of some kind. Mostly for winter use to at least have a place to chill and drink some coffee, eat oatmeal in the AM at a ski area parking lot or trailhead.

    That's a very cool looking rendering. How will they get past the Tacoma's pitifully low payload capacity? If it's a factory deal they can't just overload the shit out of it and put in some airbags and claim "it drives fine".
    ride bikes, climb, ski, travel, cook, work to fund former, repeat.

    Considering the multitude of old JDM class C rigs built on even smaller architecture, I'd guess they could figure it out. If the rest of my family dies or leaves, I'd totally get one. 2's a crowd though.

    I was thinking the same thing. So they are going to need a reinforced frame (why not use the new stiff TNGA frame), rear disc brakes and bigger front brakes, beefier front and rear axle and diffs and springs and shocks, as well as an air bag suspension.
    $100k+ if they ever build and sell any at retail.
