    This is the topper I use, it's called a Flip-pac. They are made in Riverside CA, cost about $7k, and fold open into a camper.

    I have added a fridge, a stove, a heater, a water tank/heater, water pump, toilet, etc. To make camping very fun and easy for the family.

    It gets to the good spots :)

    In the winter it becomes the meat wagon, elk and deer, then the best of all - DUCKS!

    I had an ARE on my '04 F150 with windows that open and also screens. I used to run alot of dog tests. The windows allow for easy access, and the screens kept the dogs cool in the summer. Only downfall is you are going to pay, I think they added a couple hundred $$ to the final price.

    I had a leer 100xq on my last super duty. Good topper, never leaked.

    Just order are z series for my new sd. Can't comment on it first hand, but the ones in the showroom looked/felt a bit nicer in my opinion. I ordered the keyless entry as well. I like that or uses the factory key fob. I also like the rear window and door latch better on the are.

    Don't get single handle latches. Sure, seems like a time saver, but lots of long working parts there. Dual handles, simple, secure. (I have single handle on my F-350, don't care for it)



    I got the single button in the middle of the hatch. Not good. Driving dirt roads it gets jambed up and won't release the pins(?). Definitly go with handles.

    Ive had Leer and ARE...I like the A.R.E. better and consider WINDOORS.....I didn't think I would care that much for them but they are GREAT!!! No regrets and will never have another without them!

    I am assuming with these additions, they are permanent? If so, is this a daily driver? That is one fine rig! Love to have it for my trips, but in a Tundra.
