this could be for you.
a inflatable cap that's easily removable and stored when you don't need it.

Neat but a wee bit expensive.

great idea, I have always hated the fiberglass ones due to their limiting the load issues up

Many years ago, I had a friend who had invented some sort of an easily removable cap for pickups. As I recall he called it a Compacta-Cap or something like that.
It supposedly could be removed by one person and folded up for easy storage.
He seemed pretty obsessed with his quest to get this invention of his to market, in fact he became almost unbearable to be around as when you'd see him he'd immediately start talking about his invention nonstop, and how he was working with patent lawyers to patent his idea and meeting with companies trying to get someone interested in manufacturing and selling it.
I lost touch with him, but never recalled seeing anything in the way of his truck cap ever being sold, so apparently his passion/obsession with this cap he'd come up with never went anywhere. frown

Although I do enjoy not having to shovel snow out of the bed in the winter if I want to actually use it for something.

Only two? LOL


The funny thing about science is that if you change one miniscule parameter you change the entire outcome to the way you want it.
