i just had a lance 850 on mine yesterday pursuing the same question for myself. the only issue that might create a problem i found was because of the front overhang is it might be difficult to see an overhead stoplight. for that reason i am looking at makes that offer an E.W. bed.

Most campers are made with a specific model of cab in mind, ie. regular cab, super cab or crew cab.
Mine is made for a crew cab only. If I put it on a regular cab, the overhead would extend to the front of the hood.
Besides making vision a problem, the center of gravity would be all screwed up, making handling a big problem.
On most of the newer and larger campers, the overhead is the same length.
East-West or North South beds make no difference in overhead length.
On an EW bed such as mine, the front of the overhead is where the closet is.
On the NS model, the closet(s), are on the sides of the overhead.
