Question Camper Shell... Do I pull the trigger?

I have an opportunity to purchase a black camper shell made for the D21 king cab. It is black, my truck is blue. Price is $100 plus a 2 hour drive. Should I go for it? Thanks

Yes, a 2 hour drive is nothing

Earlier this year I considered driving 8 hours each way for a new shell... I drove about 2 to get the one I have currently.

If it seems like it's a good one, I would do it, if I had the time. Maybe even bring somebody along and listen to some good music along the way, make it a little road trip. Did you end up getting it?

Just curious, why were all the windows and lights off? Was that when you bought it? I see it was on a trailer.

Are camper shells hard to come by or something? I recently sold the black one that came with my truck 17 years ago. I only asked $30 for it.

Hahaha!
I took out the windows on mine and left it at the sledding hill on the other side of town. No snow this winter, so it was never used. Town already took it away along with 1 other one.

I say sure, if you really want it. Home Depot sells the single sided adhesive tape for caps to seal it to the bed. If you need the mounting clamps, cover the flat rate priority shipping and they are yours. 6 clamps total. They might fit in a small flat rate box. I can check.

4 CLAMPS.......NOT 6. I thought there was 6. I guess not. I will look a little further to see if I have 2 more.
