bargain basement pickup bed tonneau/camper?

While reading other posts about tonnuae covers, I thought of the poptop's on old 74-79 westfalia campers. They are lightweight fiberglass, designed with hinges and supports and a canvas tent with 3" foam pads making a bed for 2. They are cheap at pickNpull when you can find them. You could used it as a tonneau, and be able to camp with it when you wanted. Storage underneath and a double bed when camping.
Happy New Year everybody.
Dave

Awesome, since its fiberglass it would be easy to turn into an aerocap
Thanks for the idea !
