Was driving through Oregon today and passed up a pickup with a camper that looked very different from others I’ve seen. Turned out to be a Kimbo. Wouldn’t fit in a CT as is but if reconfigured it might work well.

I like it!

I say that as someone who is critical of many RV concepts.

If it's light enough, I might even be able to use it while towing a lightweight trailer (tung weight in the 150lbs range).

I dislike the way most RVs look, and so the lunar lander aesthetic is a big plus for me.

I want something that works with the aerodynamics of my CT. This doesn't collapse and is bad for air flow. Thanks though! peace

Love it. At half the price of Cyberlander, if he can make one for CT, I am in.

Love this design and functionally! With minor adjustments to the front it will look great on the CT and at least uses the space above the roof. Of course size will need to be adapted to the bed. Price looks good as well......I would certainly consider buying one once adapted.

I like the more sloped nose but kimbo has a bed in that boxy nose.
I wouldn't mind driving a bit slower if aerodynamic is a big hit on mileage.

This weekend with an outback cruising around and bellow 60 mph in the country roads, display was showing me 40-50 mpg (over all mixed, mostly highway average was 31 mpg) but I was surprised how much of a difference it was from 60 mph to 80 mph. Then I looked it up:

If I remember well the bed of the CT is longer and wider than the floorarea of the Kimbo. So maybe the nose can be sloped without losing space for the mattress if the Kimbo is adapted to the m2.
