Your campers look great. I think the weight and price are fine. The only thing I see wrong is that the examples extend past the tail lights. This limits the rear bumpers that you can have, no swing outs I bet.
bed space is 31” tall. Biggest changes:Great to see the final dimensions! If you can share what changed from the prototype that may help us evaluate the pictures with a more accurate lens.
FWIW I was hoping to have a bit more cab-over height than the 30”. I’m sure it’s a tricky thing to choose a size that fits the range of trucks you’re targeting but was hoping for a bit more of a chance to sit up in there.
As a comparison point I did come across Cave Campers who seem to be using very similar dimensions to TC:

Their gallery may give a more accurate feel for the cab gap.
Curious if you have a particular weight limit in mind for roof storage? Could I stand up there while parked?
Bending vs. mitred would reduced the labor by 50%At less than 15 lb for the set of brush guards we think it’s worth the investment to protect your solar panels and skylight. These are offered as an accessories.
there is also a full roof rack system that will tie into the guards. perfect if you like to bring your kayak, canoe or mount a storage box.

Armchair quarterbacking. I think the idea of these are an upsell accessory. Integrated brackets on the corner caps might look funny if someone opts out of the guard altogether.Bending vs. mitred would reduced the labor by 50%
Be stronger if the mounts were at the corners. Might add flanges to corner covers that allow the pipe to bolt on. This would reduce the number of holes in the box.... i.e. will hitting the pie 1,2,3,4 times cause the screw holes to leak.
Might also consider making the brackets from 1/8" and/or a 45-90 bend so they crumple vs. damaging the box.
The brackets could be made with saddles to allow 2 rivets/screws on each side but that would increase the cost allotArmchair quarterbacking. I think the idea of these are an upsell accessory. Integrated brackets on the corner caps might look funny if someone opts out of the guard altogether.
What if the brackets clamped to the tube allowing adjustability on install. Also the tube could run long so one part # fits all. The tube would be cut to length at the back and be finished with a press in plastic cap plug. The tube brackets would be situated over the top of the corner caps on the camper. Installation would be drilling and tapping the corner caps and bolting the brackets on with stainless machine screws and sealant.
Looks great in there!We outfitted the 5' camper with some cozy espresso stained baltic birch cabinets.
Total cost for plywood, stain, brushes, cork flooring etc was less than $650. Ad this to the advertised US$ 15,990.00 empty shell and you will be hard pressed finding anything more affordable OR better quality.
