We do not have too many truck camper members to help on this. But... we do have several member who have rebuilt their truck camper.
If you search for a screen name "Lode" he totally gutted his and started rebuilding it from the ground up. And he has some pictures posted here on the forum. I do not know if he ever finished it but I have seen pics of the entire new wood frame.
Good luck on yours and any pics you have that you can post really help so we can see what you are up agasint. We have many who have rebuilt TT's and can be a good sounding board to help suggest some ideas for yours.
To that supported the cab over bed??? Good question as from what I have seen the wood framing is not much more then the normal walls. It may be more the bonding of the inside luan to the wood frame creates a beam to hold it.
Good luck and hope this helps
