Does anyone know what the deal is with older (80's-maybe early 90's) truck campers not fitting in the beds of newer Fords? What is narrow in the newer trucks? So am i going to need to get a newer camper to fit my truck?

The truck beds in the newer trucks taper towards the rear. Used to not do that and you had more room albeit not much. If you stand on your rear bumper and look at your bed, you can see how it tapers inward toward the rear of the truck.
