Bed Size / Canopy: 2nd vs 3rd Gen Ram 1500?
 
Are both generation short beds close to being the same? I am looking at used canopies and seem to come across more 2nd gen than for our 3rd gen used. Are canopies interchangeable between the two, aka looks good like it fits?

What do you mean by a canopy? A tonneau cover, or a bed cap? Neither will fit from the start. The short bed on a 2nd gen is either 3 or 6 inches longer. Can't remember which, but it's longer than a 3rd gen. A tonneau cover CAN be made to work. If it's a roll up style especially. I just did it.

If you are talking about a bed cap, then no. It will not work.

I mean bed cap = has sliding windows & I can sleep in it?
Thanks for letting me know. The search continues then - super hard to find a used bed cap in bright red for our 3rd Gen shorty Rams.

Not sure about the 2nd gens but our third gens beds narrow near the tailgate. The bedsides aren't straight so IF you found one the right size, it would probably not look right at the tailgate.
