    I almost got this canopy today but the seller was asking way to much $$$. it came off of a single cab tacoma so there is a slight gap between the canopy and cab. It had a couple little things wrong with but nothing major. Here is what it looked like on my truck. what do you think? Don't mind how my truck looks pink.... crappy phone picture. I was going to use it for winter to keep stuff dry when traveling back and forth from college. It would have the toolbox and tire carrier during the summer.

    I was just thinking about getting a canopy for my truck when I saw this post. Maybe a personal preference but I would like a canopy with side windows, I think it just makes everything look a little more complete.

    $150 it needed new handles and locks. Weather stripping and a massive cleaning.

    I tow a boat a bunch and you definitely want windows. Campershells are very handy. I run about 1/2 the year with and half the year without.
