Having only a mid-sized pickup, and "needing" a topper on my truck, I've never looked much at the 5.0. I love how it has the Toyota Sunrader look to it, but I never really looked much closer.

I'll say, aside from a dining area that looks pretty cramped, that thing looks almost perfect for my kind of camping/living.

It's weight is 3800 pounds. Price start at $29.000. I would get one if I was in the market.

My truck could easily pull that weight, but couldn't take the pin weight. I'm maxed out on payload with 300# tongue weight. Otherwise I'd lean towards a Bigfoot 5th wheel anyway...but that 5.0 sure looks nice.
