Anyone have suggested suppliers for tray top canopies. Flexiglass, TJM, ARB dont fit bill and not much on google. Want to be able to fit nsect screens and occassional overnight sleep. Gold Coast, Brisbane, Sunshine Coast or NSW down to Newcastle are OK

Having a custom made aluminium canopy will cost you more, but it will be the perfect height, length etc for your vehicle. Might cost you up to $10,000 for one thats well made, sealed, good doors, 3mm aluminium, rolled corners, 2-pak paint etc etc I had mine made 1750 wide, which is 100mm narrower than standard, so I can easily see out my mirrors, and so it keeps to the profile of my vehicle.

Roscos make good off the shelf ones.

AWLC in Brisbane make a reasonable looking fibreglass one. Not sure how well they hold up over time, maybe they are very good? I went with aluminium because I could easily drill and bolt my internal fitout to it, and it can support a flat mesh rack on the roof. And I would rather have a flat back without a door - so no dust gets sucked in, and you can mount the spares on the back.

I have a ROSCO BIG AL two spare wheels on the rear on swing down brackets with security bolts. It is dust and waterproof. Two undertray tool boxes and also dust and waterproof. Have also fitted a fiftyfive litre water tank with pump. No back door only side swing out doors with central locking.
