    I'm now having some buyer's remorse with my Leer 100R. Nothing about the topper. I love it. Just bought an 8' inflatable pontoon boat and no way will it fit in my truck bed without deflating the pontoons. Now I need a roof rack. Any suggestions on how to retrofit a roof rack on a new 100R or any topper?

    Sorry Rob , I missed your post , but everything is as above with the exception that in Canada the cap cost me just over $3000 and I didn't add the 12V outlets .

    I had an 8' pontoon as well...Ended up that the frame fit perfectly in between my wheel wells..Just deflated the tubes and slid them under the frame and it was good to go...

    For shuttling, I had a Yakima roof rack with Ratchet straps..Kept it up there fine.

    Yep, it's easy. Yakima makes tracks that you can mount to the shell.

    I used them on my 2002 tacoma and I have them on my new A.R.E.

    I think for the money I'll just deflate the pontoons for now and spend 10 minutes airing them up when I get to the lake. When that becomes too much of a hassle I'll look into the Yakima rack. Thanks for the suggestions.

    Debadged. ARE Topper. Tailgate mods, including locking handle. BAMF LCA skids.
    Here's another A.R.E. MX topper (with dual swing up side doors/slider windows). I've got the Yakama roof rails (custom mounted to spec), and I'll post later with the canoes mounted. :

    Finally got my cap! Leer 100R
    I found a used one for 7 bills, so I sold my toyota hard tonneau for 5 bills...pretty happy to switch out for this considering I was only out of pocket $200.
    Now I really want a roof rack for this cap...but I am "leery" (padon the intended pun) about drilling holes in the cap...its like new!
    What is the best solution for a rack on this thing? Anyone?

    Nice. Maybe I should have bought an ARE instead of the Leer 180.
