This looks neat:
A new pickup camper shell is on the market, called the Olympic from Scout Truck Campers. It's a basic design that offers impressive space and capability.

I spoke to a guy at Scout. He wouldn't say everything about it but did say that they are releasing it this coming week. I spoke to their #2 dealer (who seemed to have the details a little, I'm guessing they were filled in already). He said it'd be very similar to the Olympic but another 2ft to support the wet bath and closet. He really liked the Olympic tho and said unless you really need a bathroom (it's not optional), that it was the way to go. Kenai will be another 500-600lbs and not be a drop tail. The guy wasn't on commission and I dont live in his state so I dont think he was pulling my leg.I wonder what the larger Kenai model will look like.
Yeah, I was thinking that as well, tho I had that "Payload" explained to me by the RV guys. Basically that is the leftover weight you can put in the bed of the truck AFTER its loaded with 4 adults and the max tow load on the hitch (which would be approx 15,000lbs). After that they said that they do load up an F250 with 3k to 4klbs pickup campers like a Lance 811 (with slide)...requiring airbags of course. They didn't seem to blink an eye at a 2500lb loaded camper on an F250. I spoke with the two of the largest (I think) PU camper dealers in Apache in PDX and Tom's Camperland in AZ.My 2 cents, if the Kanai is about 2,000 optioned out, I would avoid that model if your payload sticker says 2,400 lbs.
By the time the truck and camper are loaded to hit the road you will be overweight.
