pickup truck kammback?

so I have been looking into the aerodynamic camper shells for my truck, and I got to wondering if anybody has ever done a kammback on a truck?
would the air flow right over the bed?

I just got some coroplast and I'm looking for the best way to use it

I'm not sure if anyone has done a kamm, I'm sure someone has though. I do remember some1 adding a wing of sorts that helped air flow and reduced drag

I believe a kamm would help though

Check out BamZipPow's build thread. He's got a coroplast aero topper whose design you might modify into a Kamm setup. Although, why not just go all in?
