Long bed, but no issues by a fair amount- even in sharp turns. I jumped out during the first few turns to see how it looked and was always pleasantly surprised.

But, I can't make any promises about a short bed truck.

Nice, I would love this but then I would have to remove the cover which I like.

Nope, you just have to cut a hole in it. We had to put spacers in to remount mine, but I can throw those in.

See the follow-on picture in post #8- you can see my cover.

I wonder how that would work with the activated Revolution pin box?

Yeah, but you can't see them back there and then it adds another couple of feet to your overall length. Plus, being high up in the area gives some theft protection! You need a ladder or truck to put them up or take them down.

That's an interesting question. It's the "arm" of the pin box that rotates, right? Seems like it would rotate your camper right into the bikes. Interesting question....

Exactly right. The bikes will stay @ 90° to the truck, stationary on the non-moving pin box, and the front cap will rotate into the front or rear bike tires.

Jimnkim, I'll send you a private message. We can figure out shipping and payment that way.
