haha you have to ask our wives for this answer. My wife says the same thing. I personally dont want a camper or canopy anyway because I want to be able to access the whole bed from outside without having to pull everything out or climb to the back of a canopy. I also dont want to store a spare and jerry cans where I sleep so a camper is out for me. I also need to be able to remove the whole thing easily so I can still use my truck when I am not overlanding. I have an electric winch mounted to the roof of my garage so I can easily remove the whole system at once by myself. But yeah, I dont think any of us think it is an old man thing but our wives certainly do lolWhere do people come up with these ideas about Granpa trucks. I'm a GG Grampa and neither me or my Father ever had a cap on our trucks. Station wagons, truck bed campers, travel trailers, Yes, and now SUV's that are off road capable. Grampa is keeping up with the times . I can see where a topper would be the way to go for certain people. It's a home on wheels. I even saw one topper on top of a trailer, and lastly someone gave me one about 15 years ago that they had no need for. I was going to make a green house out of it but didn't. I did use it for the roof of my chicken coop though.
