Given the overwhelming number of questions I have received about used camper shells, I thought it might be useful to write a little guide to buying used tops. First I'll tell you a few things to watch out for, and then I'll break down the major changes in truck bed dimensions for different makes in the last few decades.

A used top, selling for far below what it cost new, sounds like a great deal. But just be aware of a few things to consider before you buy.

  • A used shell that is damaged may not be cost-effective to repair.
  • A used shell may have come from a different truck than the one it’s sitting on, so you want to measure your own truck.
  • Truck beds, especially more recent ones, aren't necessarily rectangular; they may be narrower in the rear than in the front.
  • Sometimes the shape of the rails and the shape of the cab and tailgate may complicate the fit.
  • The third brake light has to be visible in trucks made 1994 and later, and may complicate the fit for mid-'90s trucks. New shells since 1995 have brake lights built in.
  • Tonneaus need to fit more exactly than shells do.
  • If a used Leer or SnugTop shell has a serial number, you can call the company and try to find out what truck the cover was made for.

A Damaged Shell May Not Be Much of a Deal

The window on this used top is separating from the frame. There is no way to fix this, despite what the seller says. Silicone will not do it, and you cannot replace a pane of glass on these windows; the window itself has to be replaced.

Keep in mind that if major parts of the top you are looking at are broken, you need to look into the price of replacing those parts before you take advantage of that "deal of the century." Far too many times, I have seen used tops for sale where the seller thinks the repair is simple. In the photo above, the glass is coming away from the frame leaving a big gap. This part of the window should be sealed. The repair in that photo is at least $250, and that's just for the parts.

The Seller May Not Even Know What Truck the Shell Was Made for

I saw the top above for sale on Craigslist. The ad says it came off a 2000 Ranger, and it now sits on a 2001 S-10. I can tell this is an old SnugTop—by the ridge in the roofline—and it probably came off a pre-'93 Ranger. The dimensions though are close enough.

It’s important to remember that sometimes people will have tops on their trucks that they themselves have bought used, and often that top was not designed for that truck. A dead giveaway is if the top is not the same color as the truck. If you think the fit looks good, and your truck is the same as theirs, no problem; but if you’re trying to make a top made for an unknown truck fit your own truck, you’re on your own, to a certain extent.

Truck Beds By Make and Year

Here is some information, broken out by make, about which years had which body styles. It will help you know what to expect when you shop for a used top to match your truck bed.

Ford Trucks

Ford 150/250

1980-1996. From 1980 to 1996, Ford F150/250 trucks had essentially identical beds.

1997-2003(4). In 1997, the Ford F150 was radically changed, most notably by making the bed tapered, meaning it’s wider in the front than it is in the rear. This was initially only done to the F150 line; the F250 and F350 heavy duty trucks remained the same until 1999, when Ford introduced the Superduty.

2004-2008. The F150 changed its body style and bed again in 2004 (except that in the 2004 F150 Heritage Edition, the bed and body are the same as the '97 to 2003 truck). The F150 would remain the same until 2009, when the bed changed; but it changed only slightly, check the top of the rear corners of a new F150 bed and compare it to a 2004-08, you’ll see what I mean. Superdutys really haven’t changed much, as far as the bed is concerned, except that in about 2008 some Superdutys, not all of them, began including a fold-out step built into the tailgate. If your truck has it, the shell door will need to compensate for it. Leer and SnugTop shells have special molded pieces on the bottom of the door to account for it.

2009 -2014. The F150 has gone through some changes, mainly the rear, and the bow to the tailgate area that most of the new trucks have now.
2015- present: If you look at the back end of the new F150's, you'll notice that the bow to the rear tailgate area is wider, and angled, in a way. Overall the bed looks the same from the previous generation, but this wider rear bow will most certainly affect top compatibility.

1999 - 2008 The heavier duty trucks, i.e., the F250 and 350s, came in the form of the new 'Superduty' in 1999. It pretty much remained the same, with the exception of adding a pull-out tailgate step in 2008, which is technically an option. This is important because tops on 2008 or newer Superdutys will have rear doors that can accommodate this step, that is if the truck has the option. If you try to put a top from a 2004, for example, on a 2009 that has the step in the tailgate, it's not going to fit over that bulge. Yes, most top manufacturers can change out that rear door, but beware, those rear doors are NOT cheap.

2008 - 2016 -the F250 and F350s in these years are mostly the same. The only footnote has to do with the step in the tailgate (see above). It wasn't until 2017 that Ford made in major changes to the Superduty-most notably, the rear tailgate that has that octagon shape to it.

2017 to current -The brand new Superduty trucks are slightly different than the previous years, most notably the octagon-shaped tailgate, there are other changes as well.

A 2008 Superduty.  Notice the molded piece on the back door of the shell that covers up the step that comes out of the tailgate on this truck.

Notice on this new F150 how the taillight is different than on the '04 to 2008 trucks, and that little corner flares out. This is really the only difference with the new F150s.

Technically this shouldn't fit, but the rails on the Superduty are wide enough that it fits on the inside rail. On the outside you can see the difference in fit.

Ford Ranger

1983-1992. Ford Rangers have been around since 1983, and stayed the same all the way up to 1992.

1993-present (2012). Rangers haven't changed much since 1993, except that the flareside bed, also referred to as the Ranger Splash bed, is different. It should be noted that there isn't a huge difference between the 83 to 92 Ranger beds and the 93 to 2012 beds, in other words, an old Ranger top fits the newer Ranger beds, the cab is just a little boxier in shape.

Mazda Trucks

Any Mazda truck built from 1994 to now is identical to a Ford Ranger, for our purposes. In the 1998 to 2006 Mazda B-Series trucks, there is a slight difference: basically, the bed on those trucks has slightly narrower rails. Most shell manufacturers did not change their molds to deal with this variation. I think SnugTop is the only company that has a specific Mazda mold, if that is even still available. But honestly, it’s not that much different than the Ranger mold.

Older Mazda trucks, from 1985 to 1993 have three different beds, the long bed, short bed regular cab, and the cabplus bed. The standard cab trucks have nearly identical bed dimensions to the old Toyota beds, and even the first gen Tacoma beds. Most of the old import mini trucks are around 60" wide and 75-76" long, and the old Mazdas are no different. Just remember that the old extended cab Toyota trucks have a lean or angle to the front of the top.

Chevy / GM Trucks

Chevy Silverado, GMC Sierra

1973-1987. It’s important to remember that from 1973 to 1987, full-size GM trucks had perfectly rectangular beds. That changed in 1988 when they became tapered, much like Ford's did in 1997. If you have a crew cab 1988 Chevy/GMC, however, it still has the 1987 body and bed.

1988-1998. The full-size Chevy Silverado pickups and GMC Sierras are the same from 1988 to 1998.

1999-2006: The Silverado/Sierra changed in 1999; however, some '99 models, specifically the heavy duty 3500 model crew cabs, are the older body style. The full-size GM trucks changed again, like I said, in 1999. The 1999 to 2006 models are called the "classic" Chevys.

2007-2013. The full-sized GM trucks changed again in 2007, but you have to be careful with 2007, because GM introduced the new truck mid-year. Thus a few 2007s still have the ‘06 body, which GM refers to as the "classic" body. The heavy-duty trucks retained the classic body until 2008.
Up until 2007, the beds were the same between a GMC and Chevy, but for the 07 to 13 generation, the bed on the Silverado is actually NOT identical to the bed of the Sierra. The insides of the beds are the same; it’s the outside rails that are slightly different. The differences are very subtle, but they do affect the fit of most hard tonneau covers and bedliners. Try putting an over-the-rail GMC liner in a Chevy bed of those years and you’ll see what I mean; one is just slightly wider than the other toward the rear of the bed. Could you fit a new Sierra shell on a Silverado bed? Yeah, probably the fit would be fine, but for a perfect fit, you’ll want to match make to make.

2014 - present. The brand new trucks have this different shape to the rear (tailgate) area there, which for a brand new top means the back door is unique to this model year. Other than that, most of the dimensions are roughly the same. I know the lumber rack part numbers have not changed. Thankfully, the Chevy/GMC trucks are back to being the same in every way for fit and compatibility, unlike the 7 to 13 trucks.

Chevy S-10/Colorado, GMC S-15/Sonoma/Canyon

1982-1993: The "S-10 years." GMC called this truck the S-15 or Sonoma.

1994-2004: The S-10 totally changed in 1994 and stayed that way until 2004.

2004-2014: After 2004, the old S-10 became known as the Chevy Colorado or the GMC Canyon. The shell for a '94 to 2004 S-10 will most likely not fit the new Colorado/Canyons.

2015-present: The all-new Canyon/Colorado is a very different truck compared to its predecessors. Tops from previous years will most likely not fit these trucks.

Toyota Trucks

"Toyota Truck" (SR5), Tacoma

The basic Toyota Truck is sometimes called the SR5.

1984-88. Some pre-1989 Toyota Trucks have have what is called a "Japanese" bed, meaning the bed rails roll to the outside. On just about any truck today, you access the underside of a bed rail from the inside of the bed, but a "Japanese" bed rail is only accessed from the outside. I don’t know much about what will fit Japanese beds, since by the time I started selling camper shells these trucks were fairly old and I rarely saw one come into the shop looking for a shell.

This is a 1985 Toyota with the imported or "Japanese"-style bed. Notice how the rails roll to the outside. Earlier years of this truck only used Japanese beds, but for this year, both Japanese and non-Japanese styles exist.

1989-94: From 1989 to 1994, the basic Toyota truck didn’t change much, except for the addition of a third brake light in '94, something I already talked about. The bed is essentially the same as on the 1984-88 truck.

1995-2004: Midway through 1995, Toyota introduced the Tacoma, a name still used today, and the Tacoma stayed the same up until 2004. Will a shell from an older SR5-type Toyota fit a 1996 to 2004 Tacoma? Kind of. It will sit lower than the height of the cab, but the inside of the bed is actually the same as the older SR5 trucks. There are also differences between extended-cab shells and standard-cab shells on the 1989 to 2004 models.If you take a shell built for an extended cab and try to fit it to a standard cab, it will most likely rub the top of the cab, since it has an angle to it to compensate for the angle of the extended cab.

2005-2015. In 2005, the Tacoma changed a lot. The new Tacomas have a composite bed: basically it’s all plastic, except for the outer skin and rear pillars. You cannot fit anything on these trucks that is not designed specifically for the post-2004 Tacoma. Whether you have an "access" cab, crew cab, or standard cab, there is no angle built into the shell, so you can swap one over to the other—just make sure you have the right bed length for the crew cab.

2016 - The all-new 2016 Tacoma IS different than the previous body style, the bed went through the same type of change we saw on the F150's and other types of beds.

Current Tacoma vs. 05 to 15 (2nd Gen)

Notice on a 2016 Tacoma, the rear of the bed, and the top of the tailgate, now flare out the way many new trucks do. You can the flared out piece on the door of the shell where it meets the top of the gate.

This shell was technically built for a 1990 Toyota, but it's now on a 2003 Tacoma. As you can see, it's not a bad fit. Because it's a high-rise style, you can't really see where it doesn't match the cab roof.

Toyota T-100, Tundra

1993-1998: In 1993, Toyota introduced the mid-sized truck called the T-100 (which later became the Tundra). It came as a short-bed extended cab or long-bed standard cab.

1999-2006. In 1999, the T-100 became the Tundra. Now here’s the confusing thing to remember about the 1999-2006 Tundra models. They made both extended-cab or "access cab" trucks, and crew cab trucks. The crew cabs had slightly larger rear doors, and the beds are technically different, although they look very similar. The only standard-cab 1999-2006 Tundra was a long bed.

2007-2013. In 2007, the Tundra completely changed. It’s not only larger in overall size than the previous years, but comes with a long-bed access cab, standard cab, short-bed access cab, or even a short-bed standard cab. The CrewMax (Toyota’s name for the Tundra’s crew cab model) only comes with the extra-short bed.

2014 - present The Tundra, like many others, has seen some subtle changes to the bed in 2014 on to the brand new trucks.

Dodge Trucks

Ram Truck

Pre-1994. It’s not very common to see a 1993 or older Dodge Ram truck. There just aren’t as many on the road as the older GM and Ford trucks, unless of course you’re cruising a badass old Power Wagon.

1994-2001: The 1994 Dodge Ram is so different from the older Rams, including a tapered bed, that I can guarantee those beds are not compatible with the older Ram beds. The new Ram style lasted through 2001.

2002-2008: The 2002 Dodge Ram went through some design changes and some bed changes. The front of an '02 to '08 Ram bed bows quite a bit.

2009-present: The 2009 Dodge Ram made a lot of changes, including factory plastic bed rails and a strongly curved rear tailgate.

Dakota

1987-1996. The Dodge Dakota, born from the Dodge Ram 50, has the distinct honor of being the only "mid-size" truck around. Model years 1986 through 1996 all have the same bed dimensions. One cool thing about the 1994 to 1996 Dakota is that the brake light, now required by law, was placed in the tailgate—meaning the shell itself doesn't need a brake light.

1997-2004: In 1997 the Dakota body style was totally redone to resemble the more popular full-size Ram truck.

2005-present: The Dakota changed again in 2005, to the current body and bed style.

Rams may look the same, but they aren't

The top is a 09+ quad cab-1500, short bed. The center is a 10+ 2500, crew cab short bed. The bottom is a 09+ crew cab short bed. Notice the 2500 crew is different than the 1500 crew.

Nissan Trucks

“Hardbody”/Frontier

1986 (and a half)-1997: The most popular Nissan trucks were the infamous ‘hardbody” models, which later became the Frontier. Those body styles were around from 1986 (1/2)—the change was made in mid-year 1986—all the way to 1997. The 1994 Nissan presents a special problem, because, like I said before, that was the year it became law that all pickups have an additional brake light. On the 1994 Nissan, the brake light is highly obtrusive. In fact, you cannot remove it to install a shell; there’s a bracket inside that just can’t be taken off. That means your shell has to have a huge notch in the top of the roof to compensate for it. This is only an issue for the '94. Nissan did make long-bed standard-cab trucks for these years, but they are not very common.

1998-2001: The Nissan changed for 1998 and became the Frontier, and for the most part, stayed the same all the way to 2004, except that:

2001-2004: In 2001, Nissan put this bulging plastic cladding and logo toward the top of the tailgate, which affects shells and tonneau covers. So if you have a 2001 to 2004 year Frontier, and want to fit a used top from a 1999 Frontier, you will have issues with the back door. It will not sit flat on the tailgate. Hard tonneau covers will not work at all in this scenario.

2005-2017: The Frontier changed most recently in 2016, so anything 2016 and newer likely has a new mold-important tip though is in 2013 the bulging cladding gave way to a wing-style tailgate piece, which in most cases has to be removed.

Back of '98 to 2000 Frontier

Here is the back tailgate of a 98 to 2000 Nissan Frontier. You can see it does not bulge out like the 01 model does.

Compatibility Tips for Older Trucks

  • If you have an older S-10 type Chevy, 1982 to 1992, a shell from a mid-1986 to 1997 Nissan should fit it pretty good,. Of course the opposite is true as well.
  • Shells from 1984 to 1994 Toyotas will generally fit the old Mazda B-Series trucks, before the latter essentially became Ford Rangers. If you do have a pre-1993 Mazda, before it became a rebadged Ranger, remember that the length of the bed on the cab-plus truck is different than the length on the standard-cab short-bed truck.
  • For the older fullsize GM trucks (1973-1987), finding something very specific can be tough, but remember the beds on those trucks are almost the same dimension as a 1980 to 1996 F150. This helps too when you’re looking for a lumber rack for an old Chevy/GMC.

The information I provided here should cover at least 95% (OK, I’m totally guessing, but honestly it’s a good guess) of the trucks that are currently on the road. The LTAA has proprietary information on truck bed sizes, and other information is out there.

Always remember to measure your bed, front width and rear, and the top you’re looking to buy. Feel free to ask me a question if you have any, I have always responded.

      @Lori -03F150 Flareside with a 5.5 bed? I don't that any truck like that exists. What you probably have is an 03 F150 SuperCrew, the bed only seems like a flareside because it is shaped a lot like one. Assuming that's what you have, your availability is very limited. You need a top from the first generation Supercrew, which is like 01 to 03, nothing else will fit.

      @James -there is nothing 'compatible' -technically with any truck. The 2016-18 Tacoma is too new, meaning no one is trying to fit just anything to a truck like that, they spend the money and get a top that is meant to fit it. The way the rear end of these new trucks are now, it's hard to make anything fit it. I currently do not know of anything other than used tops that are for that truck will work.

      @Ray serrano -technically nothing is 'compatible' but your bed is roughly just like most mini/smaller trucks, about 60 inches wide, and around 76 inches long, probably about 20 inches tall. A shell off an old Toyota, first-gen Tacoma, older Nissan will probably work.

      @Josh W -I think you messaged me, no, that will not work. The back end of the new F150s, and 250/350s have a very unique, almost octagon shape to them. The shell has to be specific.

      @Don Zimmerman -that truck is too new, dimensions alone are not enough to go on as the contour of the cab, etc. is very unique, along with the tailgate area on these new trucks-also very unique. Sorry, wish I had more to tell you.

      @Andy -Tundra longbeds are really rare, not even sure the dimensions on that one, and the 03 is the older body style, which is narrower than the current body. Finding something used for that will be next to impossible.

      @Melissa Frye -something small, you could try a top off a 2003/04 Tacoma Crew cab with that really short bed, provided that's what you mean by short bed. I remember when there was only one short bed, which was always around 6 feet, then these extra short beds came around, which are always less than 6 feet. Even an extra short bed Tacoma shell from 05 to 15 might work, be careful with the wrapped rail on the newer Tacoma shells though, it would probably rub the paint on your Nissan bed.

      @Pablo -that may work, I've seen it done, not the greatest looking option as the Frontier cab is much shorter in height compared to the Tacoma. The one thing stopping me from putting an old Nissan shell on my '87 B2000 is the fact that it's only 19 inches tall, and my cab is like 21. That may sound acceptable, but when a lot of work went into painting it, etc., I want something that looks good-FYI-new fiberglass tops don't exist for my truck.

I can't find a picture of this fit anywhere, and the price is excellent. The dimensions are off by 1/2" width, but length is spot on.

      @Tiffenie Conlon -it's odd that you can get someone to replace the glass but not the frame, they kind of go together, that is of course if we're talking about the same thing. It's difficult for me since I can't actually see what you're talking about. Whenever I repair the back door of a camper shell, and it's a framed door (not a frameless glass that you might see on a SnugTop Rebel or Leer 100XR) we get a complete door, which includes the frame, props and new locks. Like I said, if the manufacturer is no longer in business, you can't get those parts.

It's a longer bed than most minis though, so a top off an old toyota for example will probably be too short.

      @Marbarmando -uh, I don't think that would work. An F150 short bed-what we would call the 'extra' short bed, is typically around 5.5 feet, maybe an inch more. It's also wider than the the Frontier bed. I know it's easy to look at a top and think it will work, but most don't. I personally have a 1987 Mazda, sort of a vintage classic, and I tried putting an old Nissan top on it, but it sat more than an inch lower than the cab, and my truck is too nice for that. Trying to find the right top for it though has been difficult.

      @Gary Liebsack -I've seen people do that all the time, couple things to keep in mind, they are not the best looking tops, and they do affect gas mileage and add weight. However, if it's a custom, camping top you're looking for(not a fully equipped slide-in cabover), check out the Tradesman made by a company called Access Manufacturing, they were the company that made the Six Pac and Bac Pac campers. They can make you a shell that looks like a cabover camper -but just the shell, no shelving, stove or paneling, etc. They will do almost anything.

      @tracysibole -that should work, and if I'm correct, both trucks should be the full crew cabs-NOT the quad. I think they only do the 5.7 bed for the crew cabs. Make certain it is a 2009, current body style with that bowed tailgate-that's key. If it is a 2009, it should be the new body style. $700 isn't bad if it's in good condition. What you found should be what I would call an exact fit, meaning if you were to buy that top new, the mold would be the same. It's difficult to find that, so yeah, it's worth it.

I'll have to drive about 3 hours to pick it up, so I don't want to waste a trip. Do you think $700 is a good price, if it's in good condition? I'll have to paint it since it is red and my truck is gray. Thanks in advance for any advice you can give!

      @Vwadt -yes, it will fit, not perfectly, but the dimensions on the GM trucks haven't changed much, you will have to remove that extruded plastic piece on your tailgate, and replace it with an aftermarket flat one.

      Will a short bed cap for a 98 Chevy work on an 07 Chevy truck?

      I have an ARE Z Series cab height shell on my 2008 long-box Ford Super Duty F350 with step in the tailgate.

      I am going to buy a used 2016 long-box Ford Super Duty F350 without the step.

      Will this 2008 shell fit the 2016 OK?
