undercover se here.  I can lock it and not worry about someone opening up a can of bees on themselves! lool  I used to have a camper, and it was nice too.  I slept in that thing many times hunting or fishing.

I like mine, when you get supers off and the bees are everywhere, if you can to truck with not many bees with you and put supers in close the cover no more will get in.  good luck

I have one like this:

http://www.4are.com/mobile/product/lsx_ultra.xhtml

In many ways it is great.
You can lock it
Stays dry
Keeps bees confined

The draw back is that it limits storage and acsess.

I think I'll get one on my next truck.
