Looking for a rust free bed

I've been hunting Craig's List for a rust free bed for quite a while and am not having much luck. Does anybody know of a good source for rust free beds from down south or out west? I would really like to have one shipped out here to Maine because my bed is getting to the point where it may be to expensive to fix. I need an 8 foot bed set up for a single tank with gas door.

I know a guy on craigslist over in butler PA is selling rust free southern beds. Not sure if they have any currently for your truck but you could give them a call. I think you want to look under the pittsburgh craigslist to find them. SHame I didn't have a way to get to haul a bed to Maine reliably,been wanting a reason to go back and visit.
heres a link http://youngstown.craigslist.org/pts/3988906442.html

Fly (or bus if you want to be real cheap) down south buy a 2wd parts truck drive it home & then sell off the left overs. That's the cheapest route in my mind. Shipping a bed ain't cheap.

Last time I checked with the local guy here that brings up Texas boxes wanted $1,700 for one & that was a year ago

I understand shipping isn't cheap but it'd really be my only option. Unfortunately, I really don't have the time to go down south and get one myself although that would make for a fun trip.
