cab-wing ( hinged ) with tonneau

Dave,since a cab-wing with half-tonneau has almost as low drag as aero-shell,what about a wing complex like KamperBob has shown,hinged at the rear uprights,and pinned at the front.
When you need to get into the bed,you pull a couple clevis-pins,tip the wing complex backwards,allowing clearance for the tonneau to swing up and open.
You could still mount the wing complex close to the cab without losing access.
Just s thought.
