My new canopy...

Postby thrashingcows » Tue Apr 19, 2016 9:14 pm

Well I have been wanting a canopy of some sort for the crewcab. Did not really want a solid/hard shell unit, but what else was there....well one day I happened across a Tacoma with a canopy called a Softopper. So I searched to their website and knew this is what I was looking for. So finally a week or so ago I ordered one up...with the wife's blessing....Thanks Hon! ;)

Picked it up last Sunday, and took about 90 min to install it.

Their claims of folding and unfolding it in under 5 minutes is true. I was helping my Mother move on Sunday, and this worked great. All the small boxes and stuff inside the canopy for the first load, then the second load was big mattresses and furniture etc. So I just folded it forward and had a box with 90% of it's previous room!

Couldn't be happier!

Nice, I've been looking for something like that, as i like the idea of a topper, but hate the permanent of them, or, like you found, need both at the same time.
Care to share a part number?

How well does it handle highway speeds? Looks like it's fairly tight on the sides, how tight is the back cover?

Just got to the softopper website...they have a bunch of fields to fill out and it will order you the correct one. Very easy site to use. ;)

Seems fine on the Hwy, the sides get sucked, or pushed in from the air.....doesn't balloon from what I can see. The rear is clipped in with a cross bar, and zippers.....so is pretty stable.

So far I like everything about it! :mrgreen:
