I'm looking at the pictures and I'm looking at the diagrams and I just don't get it. It doesn't look 78" wide...
The diagrams say 74"... not 78". Did I miss something?

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

...Where are the windows?...
Since they mostly build caps for cargo, there usually are no windows, but some of the photos have side windows.

How wide is a standard size short bed truck
Would the small version fit my 6ft 6 Dodge Dakota?
Will it fit between the rails or do I have to go to a full size pick up?
My truck bed ia almost 3 ft off the ground. Do I need a step ladder?
"Full size" trucks are significantly wider than a Dakota, regardless of box length; I agree with Pete... this is not for compact or mid-size trucks.

There are fascinating folding stairs for slide-in campers, which have exactly the same problem. Personally, I think the low floor is major reason for liking our trailers.

The difficulty in getting decent camper to fit in a pickup truck box is an example of why I think the worst thing about a pickup is the minimally functional cargo box... many would be better off with a simple open deck, maybe with folding sides, as is used in the much of the rest of the world.

Still Think that they look usable for boonie camping. Tie on a canoe and put it in 4 wheel and look for a dirt road. Would appreciate more windows to chase away the fobias. Some of this type of cap will slide in a narrower PU like a Dakota but hang further over the sides. They just don't mention the slide in width.
