When I was a kid, my Dad bought an old Alaskan camper which fit (by brute force, as the bed was not of uniform width) on our 1959 Chevy Apache.
Anyway, it only had a dinette/bed, didn’t have the overhead. I remember sleeping in a tent a couple times while Mom and Dad had the camper. I also remember them taking the dinette cushions to use in a tent, while we slept on the plywood base in sleeping bags. Had they hung onto that camper it would’ve been great for the two of them, but someone was always outside with a family of 4.
Not helpful- but a fun truck camper tale nonetheless!
Buy a nice tent.
