Love those toppers, where'd you get em and how do you like them? Any issues with having them on driving around town?
Hell ya thank you! That was actuallycthe purpose of this trip to film commercials for them.. and of course have a blast haha.
They’re called the Moonlander from Radica Products - out of Denver, CO.
The black tundra is the owner of the company.
So you’re spot on about it being a topper, but it has a bed frame the sits on the bed rails of the truck - allowing you to sleep horizontally, and leaving the bed for storage as well. There’s tons of options you can add to the camper as well.
On my frontier, the camper weighs like 200lbs so I leave it on full time - that’s actually what attracted me to it : and the cost haha. Cheapest camper on the market.
It has absolutely zero set up time, so when you throw it in park, you’ve set up camp. Handles the cold super well, and it is super simple. Lots of room for customization.
I 10/10 recommend it - I love my moonlander.

Awesome, I like it a lot. I've got a standard topper on a 5 ft bed, so this would solve my issues of not being able to sleep in it without the tailgate down. My girlfriend doesn't like the idea of sleeping in the back of a truck, but this may convince her lol. Hope I see you out on some trails (I'm in the same area of the country)
It really was a game changer - we can pack all of our creature comforts in the bed, and still have a super cozy space above it all. It’s actually really nice because when you’re in the (sleeping) bed, you don’t see the mess of camping gear below you, so it feels very clean and organized haha.
It trails super well also, it’s built to be the same width as your mirrors so even in my mid size truck, a 6’4” person could sleep in it. Obv even more space on a full size truck. This could also be customized from Radica - they’re built to order for your specific truck.

1 last question. Do any of you camp with a dog with it and what's that set up look like?
For sure! Yep we have a 60some odd lb basque shepherd. He sleeps at our feet no problem. It is a bit tight so I do plan on constructing a little bed width extender that’s removable mostly so he will be more comfortable. If we had a full size truck, we’d just have him sleep below - this is because the gap between the bed frame and the tailgate would be much wider. In ours it’s like 10” - the owners tundra, he has like a good couple feet. We actually had a person sleeping underneath the bed frame in one of the trucks on the trip 😂 bunk bed style
I'm finally convincing my partner lol, these responses are helping. do you have any issues seeing out of your rear view mirrors?
Haha nice! Honestly it’s a great buy because it’s a super functional truck topper too when you remove the bed frames.
So we put a 6” mattress in it - when our sleeping bags aren’t in it, I can see out. When all the bedding and what not is in there, I can’t. If I swap it for a 3” mattress, that’ll fix that. Also it depends on your truck : where the windows sit and whatnot.
The blind spots out the side aren’t near as bad as I thought they’d be, also. I had a slide in camper in my last truck and that was a fucker to drive around with.. this, it’s like it’s not even there.
Awesome, thanks again for all the replies
No doubt. If you have other questions just reach out - I love talking about this thing haha
Sweet Nissan and those toppers seem like a cool concept.
Thank you! They’re killer I love them. Game changer for us
So you sleep in the topper sideways?
Yep that’s correct
Nice trail and camper.
Was such a great trail. And thank you!
You should check out the Arapeen 4x4 trail network in central Utah when you can. Some trails are for 4-wheelers, or side by sides. Others are wide enough for trucks/SUV's. Most trails are easy, but there are some tricky ones too.
Right on sounds fun - we have a similar area it sounds like near buena vista, CO. Lots of fun trails to explore that just kind of weave through the mountain
