Slide-In Camper for '88 S-10??

Does this even exist? Has anyone done this? Is this pickup even capable of carrying a slide-in camper? Google results have been lack luster. Or maybe I just don't understand what I've been looking at. I want to take a summer camping trip across the country in this pickup.

i doubt it exists. Those campers sag out half ton and larger trucks without proper spring add ins. You would be better off towing a popup behind it.

Get in contact with these guys maybe?

They say to call for older models. I'm not sure how much the bed dimensions changed over the years.

custom is the only route.

with some airbags and decent rated tires you could put a decent sized one on
Does anyone still care about UID?

slide in campers for compact trucks DO exist but are hard to find. You might need new wheel bearings on a regular basis, along with add-a-leaf springs, electric fan on a multi core radiator, load rated tires, oil cooler and an external trans cooler.

oh the truck will have a lot of roll as well.

it might be easier to find a cheap dodge RV with an easy to fix 360
