Let's See Your Tacoma (or other truck) Camping Set-Up

I'm sure this has been done before, but I'm looking at designs for my Tacoma. I have standard cab 2001 Tacoma with a camper top, and ideally I'd have a set-up to sleep my wife and I and our dog. Perhaps something like the design below, but I'm up for other options (our dog is a 60lb lab mix though). I do prefer the space in the middle, as opposed to a continuous platform. I have a jerry-rigged version of the continuous platform already, and it's a bit claustrophobic moving around on it, especially with two people and a dog.

Bonus points for any ideas on how to mount a 32 inch spare tire in the stock compartment below the bed, where it no longer fits.

I'm not looking for crazy ideas on electricity and such, as this is just for the occasional weekends, but someone else might be interested.

See example below (not mine).

Did I show either of you my setup? Super simple and more storage than normal. I can have it empty and ready to move a couch in 5 minutes.

I'll post pics when I get a chance.

Just started a snow sport weekend. I'll try to get pics in the next few days.

Currently building mine out. I'll post when I'm finished with the rough design!

This thread reminds me of the few times it sticks to be 6'5"

Bump. I'm lazy, non-committal, and still haven't started this project.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
