No, nothing pervert here!
With me recently bailing on the idea of a cap I realized, simply, that I want my cake and I wanna eat it too!
The whole reason I want to cover the box of my truck is to keep things secure and out of sight, so some form of locking hard cover is what i'm after. I don't like the idea of conventional hard tonneau covers, though, as it can be a pita to have to remove it on your own (i'm not a muscleman - look at my username
) and I want some kind of tool chest, so that hampers things there, too.
So, my idea (after all this blabbing - sorry) - why not have a folding tonneau that folds with the hinges on the box sides?!??!?!?
The idea is that you can access whatever you need as easily as if there was no cover there when the covers are open. If you need to haul something taller than the cover you leave the panels open and secure them. This would kinda be like having a flatbed truck with side panels. If I had any PhotoShop skills i'd make something, so you'll have to make due with using you imagination for now. (I might feel brave over the weekend after a few bevys and use Paint - watch out if I do! hehehe)
Am I nuts or is this not a great idea that needs to be realized?!?!??! Of course, if it already exists please show me! Gimme some input please. I want a tool chest and room for two mountain bikes (and occasionally camping gear), locked up out of sight, or the possibility to hold a motorcycle or furniture etc. I think this idea is perfect for me (and maybe others).
