I haven’t found any quality content/info on cab over camper builds, any y’all got links at the ready? I’ve got ideas on what to do, just don’t know what to do about the roof and such if I can’t find a topper/one that I like/afford, it’ll be on a 98 Tacoma. Also what’s the space gonna be like versus a van?

You might have to wade through lots of videos, but there is bound to be stuff on the YouTube channel “CheapRVliving”. He does stuff about people who live in everything from full-on truck campers, to trucks with a shell, vans, box vans, enclosed utility trailers, etc. That is a good jumping off point. Gotta be some FB groups, if you are on there, I’d guess. Good luck.

I'd assume your best best is something pre fabricated which for that make and model should be easy. Only thing is it's hard to repair if you have a leak.
Otherwise your gonna need to be good at fabricating. And wood is easiest but it sucks.
Just look for fancy camper shells

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$10.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $10.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $10.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $10.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $10.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
