The angle of the overhead should make rollin outta bed in the morning fairly easy.

The rig up makes the truck look a little less like a door stop in side profile.

I long ago stop questioning people on how they spend their hard-earned money -- whether buying ugly, yuge or impractical.

One dude gave up his luxurious 5er resulting into an unhappy wife because he said he gone sick and tired lugging that monstrous rig. He settled on a cramped truck camper as he said for being able to park on trail head, being able to take a nap before hitting the trails and have hot meal on return.' Just don't know if that worth though the cost of divorce proceedings, lol.

Anyways, younger generations seems to be the market for Kimbo and Cybertruck in the belief for zero impact life style and camping. And willing to sacrifice some inconveniences of cramped living quarters and having to pump their muscles to operate a few gadgets here and there.

I'm not the market for Kimbo unless they can make it like the Lancce 1172 -- you know, for a happy wife and divorce being more inconvenient.

If by the Lance 1172 you mean 11 feet long and a dry weight of 4200 lbs, that's a little much for a 6 1/2 foot bed and 3000 lb rated payload. You might want to shoot for something in between. [emoticon]

Well at least you will have a place to nap while doing all those recharges.

Is that even street legal? [emoticon]

Cybertruck as it is is already wider than the regular pick ups out there that Teesla is registering it to the Dept. of Transportation as medium and heavy duty truck..

I like the front bull guard, and maybe a winch, though but I wonder if it may interfere with all of it's sensors.

For the wifey to even look at truck camper, it had to be the equivalent of Lance 1172.

Neither,wait until Tesla makes the semi.Then put anything you want on it.

Only TC that would fit Cbrtk without hurting areodynamics would be some small Pop Up
