After looking for a commercial built camper and only finding campers that weigh 1000+lbs. I've decided to build my own. My Tacoma only has a 1300lb. load capacity and after passengers and gear that doesn't leave much. I want something smaller than a full cabover but more than just a shell. I've been camping this summer and sleeping in the back with the Leer shell and the 6' bed isn't long enough for me to sleep in comfortably, being 6'1".
This will be just tall enough for me to sit on the bunk without hitting my head on the ceiling.

I'm trying to bend a piece of panel I got from Lowes, 5.0mm Utility Hardwood, and not having much luck. I've been soaking it with wet towels for about two hours now and it's not softening up. I'll probable have to get something else to work with. Any suggestions?
I'm going to check out some trailer repair shops in the area to see what's available and what they suggest, but I think it will probably be aluminum. My #1 priority is weight. I may just get a couple quotes on having one of them do it.
