I've also heard that it's illegal to have a fixed railing deck in some places, any truth to that?
As Nat said as long as it's under the height limit, it doesn't matter. Every Nascar team hauler has a very similar rack on top to view their cars during practice.
The steel alone was purchased in '07 for $1800. I took it off my old camper. It's built out of 3" square for the decking with expanded metal on top.
I had to add the side supports, tho. Used 2" square tube and it totaled $225 or so. I cut the pieces to length myself.
I had thought about wood, but when I use SloppyYellow there will be alcohol involved & wood didn't give me the comfortable feeling like steel does. I also don't have covered parking for my bus & the Texas summers would lower the life of a wood deck tremendously. But, wood is a fantastic option for sure.
