Ideal for Truck Camping

What is the ideal to truck camp in, for me?

One luxury solution is a “Caribou Lite” from Outfitter Manufacturing in Longmont, Colorado. Each one is custom built. So I don’t have to have a furnace or a 3-way refrigerator.  I have seen some images of highly customized ones. They are light and made for off road. I costed it out, just in case I won the lottery.

As much as this would work, it bothers the minimalist me. I am really liking “just a topper” the best.
