This is my primary criteria for making CT campable:
A 6.5' sleeping space, 2' tall at ankles and 3' tall at head,
plus a Porta potty space 4.5' tall, not near the sleeper's head.
The CT alone cannot do this. The sleeping space needs a 6" mattress making the clearance 1.5' at the ankles and 2.5 ' at the head. Clausterphobic.
Here is a new design with a simple sleeving mechanism, solid except for the tent on the tail. It has the advantage of 4' tall usable space even while lowered, with stand up height when raised. Easily made push button. Could be electro - hydraulic or even manual.
It has excellent eye ball aerodynamics, and fits in a 7' parking garage. The tent area can house the porta potty.
5-8% loss in range?
