    I know right! I would hate to even put a cabinet on the back but I would have to. Or two big frame mounted stainless boxes.

    The truck I had in the picture, is according to KW a flattop. It just happens to be their aero cab sleeper. The midroof is much taller than that.

    Nope the mid roof and the aero full roof as you call it even though no such thing exists are the same thing. The full roof you posted is just a fairing on top of the bunk, there’s no interior sleeper up there.

    If you order the midroof from KW for the W900 you don't get the air dam on top. You have to specify the full height sleeper even though the interior is the same height as the midroof.

    Posting my own load. Don't know if its legal or not. You guys can judge. Should I be ashamed?

    Load is a few bundles of pipe. The middle bundle is too tall and is preventing the smaller bundle from making contact with the straps. I took ratchet straps and bound the bundles together. I only have 3 but they meet the WLL of the small bundle.

    take some dunnage and put it on top of the small bundle so the straps are then pushing DOWN on the smaller bundle.
