Coolest Truck bed cover ever?

I saw this today, I didn't get to talk to the owner, but I'm amazed... Had to share!

:wai:

Very nice.

If it's real wood I'm impressed, if it's vinyl I'm still impressed. You don't see that kind of creativity in vehicles anymore, not since at least the 70s and 80s.

A fine piece of workmanship, no doubt, but it sort of makes the truck a bit impractical...

Ha, yes that's true that the opening in the back (while aerodynamic) isn't exactly conducive for loading large items. I'd suspect he's a camper, and sleeps back there. That or just a weird eccentric that likes building wooden things! ;)

That is cool.. I guess he was going for one of these type of tonneau cover/bed cap...

Here's some more in depth talk about these things...

I didn't know that was a "thing".. That's the first one of that style I've seen. Thanks for the link!

Only in Texas!

That is really cool!! Reminds me of the teardrop caravans that people make

I could see that on a old Late 60s GM or Ford truck. Even more so an old Bronco or K5 as a turtleback. Either way pretty sweet.

I dont know the owner or the builder in real life but I know him in consciousness, he thought "I'm a skilled carpenter and I need a tonneau cover but I'm not a metal fabricator nor can I afford the commercial options so let's see what I can build from my wood pile"

robertdjung 02-15-2018 12:59 AM

Lol if that's the case he's got a far cooler wood pile than I do!

I reckon the man has built a few canoes in his life....

Or hacked up a few boats????

It does look like that... My first guess was just that... But a second look was no.. A purpose built item.
