My wife and I had a travel trailer for 20 yrs. Very nice and comfy for trips. For hunting it's a bit different. I have a canopy/topper on my truck. I keep all me gear in there nice and dry. The 12 ft jon or canoe fit on top. It gives me mobility. If weather is decent I usually set up my Cabelas guide model tent right behind the truck. For years I slept in the canopy but Ive found that grandpa can't bend like he used to. Putting on shoes in the middle of the night when (not if) nature calls is a pita. I'm really liking a canopy and tent. Ive thought about the ones that attach right to the back of your canopy. Its the bedroom yet everything can be stored in the canopy. Yes I owned a cab over camper three years ago. Never again. We jacked it up getting ready to back the truck under it. Tailgate 6" from the front of camper (not touching). I was on one front jack and my son on the other. We wanted just a cpl more pumps to lift that last inch. Right. My jack broke. The cab over part hit the truck then the whole damned thing rolled onto me. The camper was one me and partially on the truck. My son is 6'5" and about 270 lbs. He ran around and got under that damned thing next to me and leg pressed up. I was able to slide out. I think he squatted 800- 1000 lbs. No one hurt bad but both of us were so sore. You can keep those cab overs. Jacking them up/down is dangerous. Add in wind gusts and your trying to get someone killed. Yes I'm biased. But I learned. My $.02 worth.
