This is a "super-cab" (2007 Ford Ranger):

You get less cab space but more load bed than a double-cab. This importantly means that more of the camper's weight is carried forward of the rear axle.

I didn't need the folding rear seats so removed them to make more storage:

Gave me enough space to carry a 2nd spare tyre for the desert (I don't usually carry 2 spares - I really don't want the extra weight):

It's just in case some strange man I've never heard of in an old Citroen Xsara Picasso starts having a go at me for holding up the traffic.
