    So were looking for something in a camper for our 2014 taco found one place in Wyoming that makes them there quite expensive so I'm reaching out to the forum to get some ideas for small pull along or a camper to put on the bed of the truck.

    A camper camper, not a shell right?

    Do u have stock suspension?
    Because the oem suspension is weak as hell.
    I mean the trucks rated for approx 1000lbs depending on your configuration, and this includes all passengers and anything in the cab.

    That said, the truck has weak leafpacks to start and will squat and bottom out with only a few hundred lbs in the back.

    If ur stock, id look into weights of campers and upgrade the leafpacks and shocks to help it carry its RATED capacity. This wont increase its capacity as more goes into this than just leafpacks.... but it will carry its rated capacity BETTER.

    I was just at a big box store and watched 2 guys load up 30 sheets of 1/2 Sheetrock in a 3rd gen DCSB. I should have taken a picture o_O

    On the slight dips in the interstate mine hits the bump stops with 800lbs in the bed. And that's with Toyota's crappy new recall leaf pack. I didn't buy the truck to haul so no big deal though..

    Be interested in this. I did put dakars and 600lb coils on so my truck could handle the weight. Some pricey stuff out there.
