I've got a PortaBote Wayne. I fulltimed in my 5th Wheel for close to 7 years before anchoring here in AZ for a few years to come. I now use a Palamino popup truck camper. My PortaBote slides right on top without a problem. I've installed a couple of large eye bolts to lash it down. At one time I travelled months at a stretch carrying a 16' aluminum canoe on top of the Palamino. Other than an occasional strong cross wind it never met with a problem.
