slide-in camper for Toyota?

Is anyone making a slide-in type camper for the Tacomas? Maybe something like the old Wildernest? I like to camp out alot.

Fourwheel Popup Campers are made to fit Tacomas. I had one on my '94.

Hey thanks, that is what I am looking for.
Just a place to stretch out and get out of the rain.

You can see the entire Four Wheel campers product line at:

http://www.fourwheelcampers.com/products.htm

You might also want to check out the discussion forums at Trailer Life (www.trailerlife.com). They have a forum dedicated to truck campers.

Hope this helps...

try checking out the palomino bronco 600. I have a 05 tacoma with one and I love it. wet weight is under a 1000 lbs (with full water and propane) I did feel it necessary to install airbags though to get rid of the sag.

I hope this helps,
Jim

You're thinking about the rooftop tent, or the tent trailer?

I built a floor out of ply wood and U-bolts to mount on top of my roof rack, then set my tent on top of that with No-Slide mate in between. it ended up being perfect as long s you were on level ground. i fixed that by sewing tow straps onto the side of my tent and hooking it up to the roof rack.

The 4Wheel campers are some of the best on the market.

The OP said something about just getting something to get out of the rain? Well don't buy a damn 4wheel cause they are expensive and offer a hell of a lot more amenities than just a bed!

I looked at every model on that link. Those are nice. They look fairly big inside for a camper. Just get one of those with the solar panels, maybe a little towable supply trailer with some extra water, and fire wood for camp, and you're set for a week. The price scares me at the moment, but the quality does not. The only other thing I can think of that I'd need is a truck to put it on.

There used to be a hard shell full height made for the small pickups... a friend of a friend had one mounted in his 90 xtra cab. He actually lived in the thing year round. It seemed a little cramped inside when I looked at one (for living in that is) but for a week or two camping it would be fine... slept 4, all the amenities.
I recall the only major change he made was to mount the spare on the bush bar up front to make it accessable and improve weight distribution.
He may have had an add-a-leaf in the rear too but I don't think so.

Sorry I don't recall the brand. It was a rounded molded fibreglass type, not the slab sided ones everyone seems to make today.
