Land vehicle Vehicle Car Pickup truck Motor vehicle

I'm considering a pickup cap for my F-250SD and wondering if I can get a TW in the bed of the truck with a cap on it. I've found an A.R.E TW Classic (ironic!?!) that has a minimum rear door clearance of 48", so I believe I can get a TW200 in the door, my concern is the height at the front of the cap at the cab. Does anyone carry their TW in the bed with a cap? If so, what brand/model cap do you have? Any suggestions??

I'm going to be pulling an Airstream trailer behind the truck so a rear hitch and trailer are not an option. I'm considering a front hitch mount as an option as well. My other concern is getting the TW inside the bed of an F-250 4x4 FX4 model...sits pretty high in the back! Any suggestions for loading are also appreciated!

if you put the tw in the bed....where is the bbq and beer cooler going to go?

the canopy on my ford is cab heigh and measures 44" off the floor, should be the same as the front of a raised canopy at the front where it slopes down to meet the cab. you may have a hell of a time trying to get a tw up a ramp and into an inclosed space like a canopy, it is going to be at least a 2 man job with chances of getting hurt. not the best thing to do on while holidays. i haul mine on the front bumper, easy to load/unload by myself.

I'm leaning towards the front mount just because of the loading process in the bed. I will be traveling solo so that's a major task to consider doing on my own, especially trying to keep balance while ducking to fit under cap, etc. As they say....recipe for dis....well, you know!

Loosen and turn down the handlebars. My buddy and I used to do it and fit 2 TWs in under the cap.
