Well, it's decided, I need a cap. Time to hit ol' Craigslist and see what I can find. Anyone have any tips for used topper shopping?

Check for cracks especially the ledge where it clamps in, check the hydraulics on the back window, check for soft spots on the top of the camper and check for warping when you test it on your truck.

Oh and don't be lazy and test it on your truck. That's my two cents. I've bought two off Craigslist now and had great luck.

Couple of nice options depending on what you may use it for: fold down front glass(next to the cab) screen sliding side windows, pop out side windows, interior light and a roof rack is always nice but junk yards have plenty for 25$ or so.

Does it have a lock and does the lock work? That seems to be the most common problem with caps lol

And definitely test fit it before you buy, make sure it is the right size and its not warped or bent.

Don't settle either. Caps are constantly on Craigslist. Atleast down here anyway.

I have seen a few come up, but most of what I have seen are for full size or for crew cab tacomas.

Are there any other trucks that would have a camper that would fit?

gotta check around the local dealerships, leave some contact info and offer something like $100 if a matching one comes in. one of my old co-workers got a cap for his GMC doing that, came off a repo, an almost new leer color matching. think he got it for $100
