You have to roll the sides up, or at least unbutton them from the bed to fold it down completely. It just takes some practice getting it down right to how you like it. I'm still in the works of critiquing it myself.

How exactly did you fold yours? Since it was nice out today, I went out and messed with it for a bit and couldn't really figure out a good method of keeping everything contained in an orderly fashion.

Almost like an accordion. It takes some practice. Throw the side flaps up on the top, then throw the back and front panel up on the top; covering the side panels. Then I unhook all 4 corners and fold the topper as I lay it down towards the cab while at the same time making sure all the flaps are staying in place on the top. After a few folds the topper will fold more naturally. Like breaking in a baseball glove.

Here's mine getting put to work for an Elephant Hill trip in Moab, we had 18 people in total so the Taco got put to good use. The topper was great for loading since we could put it down.

I was looking at the Bestop when I did my shopping, but didn't really like the windows on the side, even though you could easily slide them out. I like the smooth, clean look of the Softopper. Probably because it reminds me of the Humvee's I've seen on base with the canvas tops.

I love the way these tops look and the functionality of them. Very rugged looking. What kind of prices do these go for?

I got mine directly from soft topper website. There are accessories you can get like a rear mesh window and a cover. My purchase with a cover and shipping around $715.
