Hello all,

Any recommendations on camper shells for my truck.

Currently in Tahoe and my truck had a visitor last night. No food in the truck but I guess the smell of leftovers inside was enough.

Now I get to buy a camper shell. Yippee!

No recommendations, but whatever that was made a mess.

Yikes! No suggestions, but I'm curious to see what answers you get. :)

A R E and Leer are both good quality. I have had both and been pleased with the quality. Only issue with any of them is the back glass is about $1000 if you brake it, so you need to be careful not to do so. Fiberglass tops are the way to go.

Back glass? Are you talking about the glass behind where the shell and my back window of my cab meet?

My boy totaled his Ram several months ago. We found Him a 2010 Toyota Tacoma. For $5900. He wanted a camper for it. I remembered that my neighbor across the street had one He wanted to give me several years ago. Knowing this guy never throws anything away. I ask Him if he still had it. Long story, short, I had to replace the glass that goes against the cab, and I stripped it down and repainted it for my boy. It's an ARE. It came out very nice. I used some lexan. We had some lexan drops at work, that were big enough to fit the camper. It's been grate since. It was gray. We removed all of the windows and molding, sanded it down, and painted it white to match the truck

So the glass against the cab, on the camper is lexan now and not glass. The big back window at the tail gate is what's expensive. If that is broken, it is about $1000. I tried to get the glass for my boys, that's against the cab. I couldn't find one, but I knew that lexan would work. That's what they use for race cars. It does scratch somewhat easy, bit being against the cab, nothing rubs on it so it's been grate since I replaced the missing glass.
