I'm interested to see what you decide to do.
Perhaps, but some can't even put the tailgate down with the Airstream attached. That's the benefit of a tonneau over a cap, IMO.

I've wondered about the weight myself. Unless it's aluminum and not steel. And even then, aluminum is still going to weight a pretty penny. Even the DIY wood ones are going to be at min a 100lbs or so.
I'm 5'8 and with my truck being a 4x4 I can just barely reach over into the bed. I'm not excited about the idea of always having to crawl up into the bed though. And I really can't understand putting a cap on a truck, filling the back and then digging/crawling over everything to get it out.
I'm pretty sure that what's in my bed is going to be limited to gas can, water can, possibly two gennies and a stroller.
