Does anyone know if a wedge RTT can be flush mounted on the GFC topper? Instead of using beef racks, which raise the RTT off the topper, I’m thinking some custom side brackets that tie into the t-slots of each would work, as long as the RTT is the same width as the topper.
The goal is to achieve the same look and form factor of a GFC platform camper but closer to the cab height. I’m willing to give up the floor pass-through.
I really want a platform camper but my garage opening is 2" too short to fit one on my lifted 3rd gen Tacoma on 35s.
The problem with every platform camper on the market is the wasted space between the cab roof and the overhanging RTT.
The GFC RTT mounts off the side extrusion, so it would work as long as the width is accounted for. But realistically, you’re probably gonna run into the shark fin antenna before you make up 2+ inches. Pretty sure the 3rd gen camper is packaged as close to the antenna as appropriate.
Finally got this done the other day. I used two sets of GFC’s Outrigger blocks that come with the Platform RTT and sandwiched them together with some 3/8 hardware, plus some spacers to support the relief cutout between the holes. Also used dowels in place of the existing threaded holes for more shear strength. Should be solid.
Looks like I should have enough clearance over the cab for frame flex. Super stoked with the result.
I think its cool you could remove the camper if you dont want it on there.
Seems strange, but I also realize that you’re probably in need of a camper at times and other times you dont need it.
Everyone has their own vibration, wants and needs.
For me, i like standing in the back of the bed.
I have also seen some trucks where the space between the camper bottom and the top of the truck seems like a lot of space… specifically i think thats true for some of the yotas… but thats totally my oppion…
