as indecisive as i am, i've decided what i want to do (i think!)

i was tossing around the idea of a roll bar or canvas camper shell

ultimately, brand new both of those are gonna cost more then i probably wanna spend.

but on craigslist. theres at least a half dozen fiberglass shells for sale. all in good shape under 200 bucks. i could score one of those, paint it flat black and put a nice rack on it and be set.

what do you guys think?

I have a shell for my truck and its one of the things I love about it. I can go camping and just throw a twin matress in the back. **** tents lol.

Also I have a Yakima boat rack for it, a 14 foot aluminum boat fits perfectly up there.

The question is form over function. The roll bar will look cool, but won't really do anything, but the camper might look cool and will be useful.

what do you guys think about this one? i have a wanted add on craigslist and this guy emailed me
its an aluminum one. up in the air. the color is good. but not sold on the style. the windows make it a bit better then most aluminum shells, but idk. could look badass with a nice roof rack on it...
