Toyota Tacoma Habitat Shell Lets You Camp Anywhere in Comfort
Here's a hypothetical: you have a Toyota Tacoma, and you want to go camping at the top of a volcano. Good news, AT Overland Equipment just built a habitat shell that turns the bed of your Tacoma into a camper that large enough for one adult to stand in. It can also be customized to perfectly fit your needs. It falls somewhere between a standard truck topper and a slide-in camper. The habitat can be deployed by just one person, has a waterproof canopy, and a cantilever sleeping platform that supports 600 pounds. The bed is also large enough to sleep two people.

The shell is lightweight too, coming in at only 340 pounds thanks to the use of aluminum composites. It's a total of 15-feet long with seven feet of headroom making it a pretty comfortable living space, even if you are at the top of an active volcano.
Once you deploy the platform, it doubles a protective awning over the rear of truck giving you a sheltered outdoor workspace. They have designs for multiple generations of the Tacoma with five and six-foot truck beds.
You can buy your own Tacoma habitat shell for a starting price of $8,600.
