    Camping this weekend, finally figuring out the truck, got 12-13 mpg with the trailer in tow and we’re in upstate NH so it wasn’t flat towing! Gorgeous weather so far.

    Good afternoon everyone,

    need some guidance, looks like we are getting Alex @grey_taco95 a soft topper for his ‘02. Question is, where’s the best place to get one and what’s everyone’s take on them. I know a couple of you have them. Any feedback is appreciated.

    Hope everyone is having a great day.

    If you're getting it new, go right to Softopper.
    I'm officially a fan after this last road trip.

    Oh, ok. Wasn’t sure if any retailers would carry them. We’re on their site right now. You’ve had yours for several years, right? Any issues?

    @Chasespeed cheers! Thank you sir for the bike. Already tore into it. Tires and tubes held air! .... Tubes held air. Tires ehhhh not so much :spy: what can you expect from 20 year old rubber though. Beads started separating when I put it to 100 PSI. Rode it up and down the road though, so there's that!

    Don't feel bad about the brifters. The right (rear) I can't QUITE isolate what the issue was, but a full teardown, cleaning, and reassembly got me nowhere. The left (front) one of the pawl springs was broken, all the cleaning and grease and lube in the world wouldn't fix that. I'm getting some knock-off specials on Amazon in a few minutes. Seat, pedals (clipless), new bar tape (since I need to get the brifters off), and the new brakes and this thing will be screamin' :D

    If this thing gets me back riding again, I'll be happy. Been a while and a lot of pounds since I stopped riding as much.

    I had one. Used it for a road trip to sleep in. Didn't sleep in it. Sold it.

    Re-alignment of truck useage, now I want to keep a bicycle back there and for longer road trips .... bought another one.

    All was used off facebook or here. All in the 550-450$ range in and out, cant remember exact numbers anymore. Highly recommend. I use velcro on the front but am considering putting the screws in for next time. Depends if someone bites on my truck for sale now, given the current market, if it goes it goes and i won't think twice. Won't drill into the bed though. But if it doesn't go, then I will be keeping this for 300k and definitely will.

    Over time, they DO age and shrink. This thread has a good picture:
    https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/softopper-7-year-review.584158/

    But when I don't have mine in use, I take it off and stash it in the garage. Not sure if that shrinkage is UV or not. Either way, that's way down the road. :notsure:

    I bought mine used a 3/4 years ago. I needed a new back window because the original was so scratched up. I got a new thanks to Rick @Unchained 5150 and have loved it ever since. BTW the customer service there is second to none!!!
