Why "de" and not "des" camions ??

Saying "trop des camions" would be understood as referring to some specific trucks (following some conversation unknown to us). The term "trop de" + plural noun = too many (plural noun). Compare this with "des" used to express an unknown quantity of something: https://www.thoughtco.com/du-de-la-des-1368977
