I have considered it, but I think I'll install sliding side windows with screens. I've been watching for deals on eBay... I live/work out of my truck a lot during fishing season, so making it comfortable and functional is super important.Have you thought about setting the back up with screens for those warmer nights?
I really like the taller shell for the space it provides and You seem to be doing a good job on yours.
Man, I know this one is old, but holy canoli this is about the perfect most simplistic setup I have seen here that looks ideal for what I want need. i think I have a plan.Here is my camper shell conversion.
I first tried the standard bed platform, it did not work well for either storage or headroom given the fact that I have a small Ranger pickup with a cab high Leer shell. My latest attempt is working well though! Rather than storage underneath that is hard to get to, I am using shelves for storage above and sleep on the floor. I built 8"w hardwood shelves for both sides mounted above the bed rail and secured with the 4 canopy shell bolts, then one 22" deep removable shelf for the front that hangs on the side shelves. 4) 4" cushions store well under the front shelf and using a Bedrug on the floor. The front shelf and cushions pop out in seconds leaving the pickup for hauling and other purposes. LED lights, 12v outlet, window fan switch all in one pod unit in the rear. I also added a simple awning that is easy to set up or take down in a couple minutes. Couldn't be happier with this set up for simple camping.
