Can I put campers on the bed of the cyber truck?
It would be nice to consider it when manufacturing the vehicle so that the camper can be tie-down to the frame under the body.

Sure.

There isn't a frame under the body. The sails are the frame. There's no reason to drape over the sides except to add volume (and lower range).

If so, how do you tie down campers on a cyber truck?
Is camper safe if tie down to sails?
The Gross weight of the camper is estimated to be over 800kg.

There are tie-down rails along the sides and floor of the bed. The exact configuration is not known at this time.

There are hard points along the sails and roof for this. The Model Y has these as well. See this thread: https://www.cybertruckownersclub.com/forum/threads/cyber-camper-concept-for-cybertruck.779/post-9387

That sounds under the 3500 pound load capacity.

The inside and the floor rails of the bed have problems when tie down campers.
The bottom of the camper is blocked in all directions, so tie-down work cannot be practically performed.
Tie-down work is not allowed on the inside and the floor rail of the bed.
Tie down must be done on the outside of the bed.

In your example of the Cybertruck slide in you have a cab overhang with an air gap. This would be unnecessary with the Cybertruck since it is rigid between bed and cab. Body on frame flexes necessitates that gap.
Hopefully you would be able to utilize the mount points that are shown in the ladder rack photo.

No, that's not how these tie-downs work. You can have bolts that go through the floor (and not all campers do block the bed floor, either) to the T-slots and you just tighten them once the camper is in place.

Think how the clamps on roof pods work; you tighten the clamps from the inside of the pod.

Isn't that part too weak in tension?
Is the camper safety when driving on the road?

Yes, though those accesses seem weirdly awkward,

Why would it be? On any truck, that would be where the bed and frame are connected.

On the Cybertruck, it'll be inside the frame itself. Because the sides of the truck are the structural arch for the vehicle.

If tie down inside the camper in this way,
It seems to be very inconvenient than external tightening.

Save yourself some time and aggravation, don't put the cart before the horse. If you have a camper now, quit thinking about using that one. When you take delivery of Cybertruck, there are bound to be several options for a camper, tailored for the CT. Without all the bizarre tie downs.

How often do you take off the camper insert?

External connections are exposed to the elements and cause drag (reduced range).

-Crissa
When moving, the camper is loaded, and when it arrives, the camper is unloaded.
I don't always loading campers on trucks.

Of course, I know.
However, the Lance Truck Camper is also connected to the outside, but there is no problem.



I think that the red circle in the photo has a small thickness of the shackle, so the tensile strength is not strong.

Wouldn't it be better to improve or change the various problems before delivery of Cybertruck?
