Got mine during the lock down so the family could go camping. It's been great for that, and everything else since it's been on the truck. I've driven thru blizzards, high winds, rainstorms, even a small hail storm. No leaks, no tears, no problems. I did have the see thru rear panel at 1st. Was fine, but it did crack in the cold weather. Ordered a solid back panel replacement. It arrived early, took maybe 5 mins to put on, and has been problem free since. Def recommended this product if looking for an alternative to a hard top. Cheaper, and more versatile. Obviously it's not as secure as a hardtop, but you'll have to weigh that out for yourself. Overall a very solid product, and something I would order again.
I was prepared to wait a few weeks. Need to call? Do so right when they open. Was easy to install and took me about 1 and a half hours. I read the instructions and then used the video for a step by step guide. Looks good and appears to be of good quality. Will see how it holds up on my first trip towing my Gladiator with my RV.
I have had my soft tupper for a few years you years now And it's one of the best things I've ever bought started out as for my wife's pick up And then when we sold hers and I put it on my pickup and it's on there right now I use it every day If it protects everything that I put in there I have had only one glitch If one of my tension straps has failed me And I need to get a new one,also the clip that holds the metal bar has broken, I have had the salt chopper for about 14 years now and it is still in very good shape no tears or rips in the fabric one bit and the zippers and the snaps are in Exxon condition
Just received my topper, two weeks early, installing now.
Our topper arrived today -- I called to ask about stock, and ordered a gray topper on Monday morning, it's here on Thursday afternoon! And we installed it - it looks great, and should be a perfect addition to road trips!
Bought the topper a year ago Just took a 2000 mile trip to Colorado. Topper performed perfectly. No problems. Rained every day no leaks. We loved our trip rock hunting and fishing. I completely recommend the Soft Topper
I love these soft toppers!
6-month report: Install was a breeze. Across country twice in all manner of weather, this surprised me for its water-tight performance. Get better mileage too! Absolutely no complaints! Would buy again in a heartbeat!2nd UPDATE: 5-stars for a surprise delivery of my soft topper today, 2-weeks before they said they’d ship. I’m overjoyed but it would be nice to know it was coming as a complete shipment. Even FedEx said was it was only one pkg. Bottom line: they are working their customer service! I’d rather they promise late and deliver early, than the opposite. Thanks Soft Topper! Now for the install…UPDATE: Raised rating to 3-stars after Softtopper finally emailed me yesterday 14-days after placing my order to alert about the back order. New ship date is week of 6/29. Guess they are slammed! Regardless, corporate communications need help: if you are going to order, then expect to pay now & receive the gear in the future, date tbd. I’m sure looking forward to getting the topper, sleeper add-on & boot cover. May add stars to their rating.ORIGINAL: Would love to give a glowing review but after 10-days, all I have show is an $1,100 credit card charge. A FedEx label was generated the same day as the order, but since then, no shipments, just crickets… If it’s a back order issue, then just let the customer know, for Pete’s sake! Calls, emails as yet NOT acknowledged. If you guys can auto-change my credit card, then you can code order updates as well?14-month UPDATE: still water tight & smart as the day I installed. Can’t recommend this Soft Topper enough!!!
Been a satisfied owner for 14 mos. now & couldn't be happier. It's been weathertight and durable even after two cross-country trips. There was a slight hiccup during 2121 ordering due to high demand, but they came through ahead of schedule. Absolutely no complaints !!!
As advertised! Looks and works great, relatively easy install, and priced right. Same price as a top quality tonneau but with much more versatility. Do it for the dawgs!
Love the topper. It did take about two months to arrive… I can fold it down and load my motorcycle, fold it up for the dog, or whatever else I need to keep dry. It really was easy to install and it’s easy to adjust to the various styles of use. Probably buying the tent cover too since my bed is short. I’ve always had hard toppers but don’t want to trailer the bike. This is way more versatile. Also, the grey was darker than expected, which I’m really happy with on a black truck.
We got the topper very quickly, 2 weeks to Hawaii! Two plastic pieces were missing, an email later, I heard back from customer service and they sent the replacements Fed-Ex overnight, which for Hawaii is 4 days. We got the pieces, put them on and the topper is perfect. It looks great, too. Very pleased with this company.
My topper arrived in less than a week. The quality is fantastic and install took about 45 minutes. The canvas can be snapped on initially by one person but it is much easier with a second set of hands. Very happy with my purchase!
Installed my new SOFTOPPER today! I'm still adjusting here and there, but I am satisfied so far. The default install is nice and tight (maybe too tight?). It folds up, down, and snaps in AOK. Probably going to install the screw-in snaps inside the bed under the rear window tomorrow... I have a factory spray on bed liner and the velcro won't adhere to it. Overall, very pleased!
Received it within a few days of my order. I am very impressed with the quality and design. Installed it and a week later was on a road trip.
I purchased softopper for my 2021 Ford Ranger XLT. Softopper fit well on my truck and very happy with it. I live in Taiwan. I ordered 27th Apr and delivered on 27th May. As an international order, shipping time is quite fair. Appreciate!
Bought a used softopper that was a couple years old in good shape. Very easy to install on vehicle and the fit and finish is great. You do need to use the screws at the front of the truck or else the front will flap. Once added the screws no more flapping. Just got done with a 1500 mile trip to Moab and slept in back of the truck several nights. Really am happy with this purchase and the versatility of this top.
I got the stopper for my (^ Ford Bronco to shed weight for racing. We podiumed the 2022 NORRA Mexican 1000 Rally, racing off-road more than 1,400 miles from Ensenada to Cabo San Lucas, Baja MX. The stopper performed fantastic withstanding the demanding baja terrain at race speeds. Well made and Baja tough, love this top!
I bought a Softopper for my '77 Ramcharger. I got tired of lifting the hard top off and on and wanted something that I could leave on when it rains but remove easily when the sun is out. The 6wk delivery turned into about 3wks...nice surprise. Unpackaging, all the parts were there, wrapped and protected from rubbing with easy to follow directions. I do have to disagree with the 1 hour installation time, however, I wasn't looking for a fast install. It took me about 3 hours which isn't bad considering most of these old trucks have had work done and there are no two the same. I also had to drill two holes in the rear to attach the box rails but overall it is a good fit and I am looking forward to sunny weather to roll up the sides and enjoy it.
First things first, I'm sure many of you are reading for info on delivery time. I received my topper after 8 weeks and it was well worth the wait. I received an email from Softtopper after about 4 or 5 weeks to say that delivery was delayed due to supply in material. After reading through the reviews, 8 weeks delivery time was about what I was expecting anyway. ***Note to Softopper; your quality is top notch and I believe you would see a major boost in your rating to reflect it's quality if you simply upped the stated delivery time on your website.***As for the topper itself, the material is top quality. Install is quick and easy after watching their how-to video. I chose the Softtopper over a hard shell for my 2001 Tundra because I need normal access to the bed when hauling my 4 wheeler and this works perfectly for that need. Lowering the topper and raising it in place again is simple. I was concerned about the snaps being at risk of tearing off with time, but it doesn't seem like that will be an issue because the snaps on either end are not overly stretched and those in between are not stretched at all to snap and unsnap. The fit is near perfect; the only issue is it only covers about half of the stake holes on the bed rail, which will allow a little water to leak through even if you have caps to cover the holes. (the caps aren't water tight) otherwise, there is no issue with the fit. My other curiosity was how well it would keep out dust from the dusty Owyhee desert roads and it did a great job at that as well. I'm very happy with my purchase, it's well worth the wait and I highly recommend it to anyone.
I've had a softopper on my 2004 Duramax for several years now. I'm still very happy with it. The topper has aged well. I chose white and it's not as white as it was when I got it, but the canvas is still in very good shape. It still keeps everything dry. It has held up to tens of thousands of highway miles, Severe freezing temperatures from Minnesota winters (teens below zero), Severe heat and sun from Southern Oregon summers (115+ degrees) and is still in very good shape.The one complaint I have is that the snaps could be spaced just a little bit further apart on the canvas. It was tight to install when it was new, but as it has aged it has become very difficult to get the last couple snaps snapped. The first few are easy. The next couple can be done with a ratchet strap to pull it tighter. The last couple require two strong adults and the ratchet strap all working together. My personal opinion is that any looseness when it's new would be a tiny unproblematic sacrifice to be able to still put it on as it ages.
Waited almost 8 months before reviewing but this thing is legit! Tight as a drum going 80 on the interstate and keeps the bed dry in all weather. There is some dust that gets in but through an entire hunting and ice fishing season kept everything dry. Will remove for the summer and put back on in the fall. Even spent a night back there when it was raining and we arrived at camp spot after dark. Highly recommended and would definitely replace if it was damaged
I live in Hawaii and expected my Softopper to arrive in 4-6 weeks. I came home the other day to a surprise. I received my softopper in exactly 2 weeks as promised. It was well-packaged and took time to unpack, but that's how you know it is well prepared for shipment. Easy install and looks great on my truck. Thanks Ben and the team at Softopper!
I was looking to buy a used Softopper and didn't know about fitment. I called in and they were super helpful - even though I wasn't buying from them. The used one sold and I bought a new one. Love the Softopper and the customer service was great.
This thing is great! Just recently installed on my Tacoma 60 inch bed. Looks fantastic it has held up great so far. Plan on putting this thing to much use. I do wish the tent attachment was more reasonably priced. @softopper, message me if you feel like cutting that attachment a deal.Should omit the 1stars complaining about shipping, thats bbb business. The product itself is good stuff and seems quality. Warned my wife about the shipping madness and lack of communication. So she ordered with plenty of time and prep. Let them charge the card and said a prayer to whatever god was listening. And one day it showed up! Just before christmas in fact! Great product. Not alot of communication. Hope I don't run into issues.
Put on my Softopper today. It fits and looks great. This versatility is exactly what I wanted. The YouTube video and instruction sheet made it real easy to install myself. Yes, production took 6 weeks but I have a new body style truck and everything takes a little longer right now. All around... an A.
Love it!!! I replaced my 2 year old Tonneau cover last summer with the softopper on my 2006 Tundra and have not looked back. It is just awesome. I have it up all the time and when I need extra height just fold it back real quick. It has weathered the extreme cold, snow, rain and high winds of Wisconsin with no issues. The only draw backs I see is that if you don't want anything potentially stolen from the back you will need to have a lock box. Also your not suppose to go through car washes that use a touch wash system. I have had hard tops and tonneau covers. The softtopper is just so much better and more versatile. I will never go back to either one. Sincerely, Michael Neimon
Buy Softopper, best top and customer service hands down. Unbelievably understanding and helpful helping me with a replacement window. Don’t hesitate to get one of these tops
Love my top. Durable, waterproof and great fit and finish. Highly recommend. 2018 Ram 2500 Power Wagon.
Very nice looks great seems to be good quality
My wife bought one for my 72 Blazer, when she ordered it, it was 5 to 7 weeks backordered. Showed up 4 days later, Haven't put on yet but inventoried it and all parts are there. Will be installing shortly, need the weather to warm up a little more, expect it to be perfect.
Well I have owned my Softopper since 2007 when I purchased it for my 2005 Tundra. Recently checked out the site and saw how far along it has come since 2007 - I thought it was about time I reviewed my purchase. We used the Softopper to protect our gear when we traveled cross country and back in 2007. I have been using it regularly since. It is a breeze to install and remove - so I remove it between trips for other truck type work where I don't need it. I can't say enough about the quality and performance of the product. Very very pleased with my purchase and would recommend it to anyone wanting to avoid the cost, mounting hassle and limited function of a hardtop. Only issues are the squishy gaskets/adhesive under the rails that don't hold up well in the extreme heat but pretty minor issue in my view. Probably resolved by now. Do it!
Zero complaints. So versatile. One year in. 2018 Silverado. Wife and I installed this in less than an hour. It does not leak. I can lower it and boot it in about 10 minutes and raise it even faster. Very satisfied.
I needed my Softopper in a pinch and when I called they were more than happy to help me out. They expressed shipped my topper and I had it installed on my F450 just two days after I called. I can't be happier with how this performs and keeps my cargo covered and protected from the elements. And it looks great too!
First things first, thank you Amy for your excellent customer service , answering my endless questions prior to and after placing my order! To the entire staff, thank you for getting my topper to me in less than 2 weeks! It went on nice and easy and it looks amazing! You can really feel and see the quality of these toppers. You won’t be disappointed!
Just wanted to write an overdue review for my softtopper. I purchased it on 9/17/21 and received it 11/16. When purchasing my softtopper I noticed the wait time and was okay with it. These are tough times and not everything can be pushed out as we all wished. Well it finally arrived and the order was correct all the way through. I purchased a Tan topper for a long bed 3rd gen Tacoma and man does it look SICK on the cement truck. I get a crazy amount of compliments and even looks on the road. I had one lady tell me shes never seen anything like it on a truck and it made me smile. Till this day, I've only seen two softtoppers in the state of Georgia. One on an older Tacoma and one on a Tundra, both looked well used but still sturdy as ever. The assembly was easy and it is a QUALITY product. The wait time is well worth it. Believe it or not it has also helped with my mpg. I travel from Atlanta to Augusta regularly and my mpg seems to be around 23/24 vs 18/19. I drive it rough too and you hardly notice any noise coming from the topper. It handles winds very well too. It rains a lot here as well and everything underneath stays bone dry! I might be the only one now in GA with a softopper but I expect to see a lot more in the future the way it seems to attract peoples attention. Such a solid product! Thank you Softopper.
I have had my soft topper on my Ram 2500 for 5 years now. It is still one of the favorite things on my truck. I did have an initial issue with some stitching but it was taken care of promptly. It is still holding up strong and I keep it on the truck for 3/4 of every year. It’s been through all kinds of weather/elements and I can’t think of a single complaint. Whether using it for just keeping a load in the bed covered or camping in it it’s fantastic. Does a great job at keeping rain out of the bed and I have slept in it during torrential downpours. It’s so easy to take off or put on solo without any assistance. 5 stars!!!!
This is the best top ever! Arrived completely as described and has been flawless for a few months in snow, sleet, rain and mud. Thanks! STP folks!
Many thanks to Ben and all the folks at Softopper! I got my soft top installed in time for a trip over the mountain pass, it fits great, and looks awesome!Thanks again guys!
I'm local. Went into the shop about two months ago, ordered a soft topper for my truck. They told me it would be 1-2 months depending. They called at week six, told me my topper was ready. Went and picked it up, installed it in about 1.5hrs taking my time. It really is really thick and good quality. Wasn't missing any parts, and very straight forward install.Would recommend. The lady working the front desk was very nice and helpful. No issues on my end, would recommend to anyone.
I didn't know that their products were on backorder until I actually placed my order (they seem to have updated their website since), and after reading some really bad reviews, I didn't have high hopes for a timely and/or accurate delivery.Low and behold, my topper was delivered right at the 5-week mark yesterday (no shipping update- just showed up on my doorstep).Fit and finish are quality, and the install took only 60 minutes or so with the help of my 8-year old (so I probably could have done it in 45 minutes without her "help"), and that included a quick cerveza break in the middle.I would suggest Taco owners use the online install video rather than the included printed instructions, as some of the offsets for the rail were more accurate in the video.
After reading reviews I was hesitant to order since reading horror stories about availability and delivery times.I accepted that it may take a few months to get it to me. Well low and behold I got an email 5 weeks after order saying if I am willing to change the color I could get it the next week. After the conversation on the phone it showed up 4 days later and got it installed in a half an hour by myself just before the snow storm hit.Yes, as a company they are difficult to get ahold of but the product is worth the wait in my humble opinion.
I saw some reviews that were negative because of them taking so long to ship. I called the company and a friendly lady explained that they were understaffed and some of the materials were arriving weeks late. I went ahead and placed an order. My topper arrived in just two weeks and took about 90 minutes to install (im a little slow because I like to read everything carefully). Seems very high quality but I wanted to leave a review because the quality is very high and we all know that there are shortages right now. Would definitely buy again as it can be taken down in just a couple of minutes with one person.
1st, It says installing takes about an hour...not if you do it right. I did the YouTube scroll first and watched several videos. All parts were there and material is exceptional! I kept the rails loose and glad I did due to repositioning several times. Make sure the red markers on the arm is towards the cab! I only needed help to pull down the sides to snap into place.. You have an option to use Velcro inside towards cab or drill pilot holes for snaps which are included. I did the snaps.. Over all perfect fitment on my Ram Longhorn! Absolutely love it! Oh, by the way I am 5' tall and a Grandma! Go girls you can do it!
Order # 29230. Ordered, and payed on 8/17/2021.2021 Toyota long bed.Color; Gray.Tried calling, no answer.E mailed service, no reply !Paul Mason.149-57 18th Avenue,Whitestone, NY 11357Hello ........................... Well, here is a follow up on the above.On 10/27/2021 Softopper delivered !What a product, and it was worth the wait.Let me clear some thing up in defense of Softopper.They have been around for a long time, and the delay wasnot their doing. The supply chain for materials is a disaster tosay the least. Almost 3 1/2 months waiting.Anyway, I am more than totally satisfied with their product.Totally awesome ! Light weight, easily taken off, or folded down.Tip; If you are installing in a cooler climate as I had to, just put a small propane heater on the bed with the cap cover loosely on. Wait 10 minutesand proceed to snap the cover in place, but start the snapping at the cab side of cover and work towards tail gate.Ordered the gray top which matches the cement gray of Tacoma off road.Also have black Uptop overland rack system which contrasts well.Many thanks Softopper !Tally Ho !
I've owned the Softopper on my 2017 RAM 2500 since 2018. It has withstood a few Sierra Winters by now, and I am very happy with it's performance. I love the fact that it has all of the utility without the steep price if a fiberglass or steel shell. I can throw in a half cord of firewood or load my Yamaha Grizzly 700 without having to remove it completely. I've strapped kayaks to the top without issue. It's amazing. Spray it with 303 or similar UV protection onto it every now and again, and it looks as good as new.I'm looking forward to purchasing another for my 1979 Ford Bronco. I know that the current supply and labor shortages may mean that I'll need to wait a little longer for it to arrive this time, but that's to be expected nowadays. No big deal. I'm just thankful that I can purchase a super high quality product like this that is made in the USA. Nobody else even makes soft tops for older SUV's. I'm sure that the Blazer and Scout guys can relate.
Best topper for my trucks I have ever found. This is my second soft topper. Had one on my 2018 Chevy. Ordered one for my new 2020 long box High County Chevy. They had to make new ones for the newer models. Got mine as soon as they were updated. Got a gray one to go with my pearl white truck. It's awesome and does everything and then someI take it through the car washes and it doesn't leak . If you want something you can just fold down to haul something big and keep whatever in your bed dry and clean It's the Soft Topper.
Several years ago, I had a Honda Ridgeline and purchased a soft topper. It was easy to install and I used it for years with no problem. Loved the ease of folding down to nothing for storage when not needed. Also, it was excellent keeping things dry during rain storms.Well, here it is in 2021 and I am again buying another Honda Ridgeline. And guess what, I will be buying another softopper as soon and I get the vehicle.American made (Colorado). Got to love it.
I ordered my Softopper at the end of July and got it mid August. First impression was that it seemed pretty solid. I've driven with it for a couple weeks now and I'm very happy with it. Rain, dust, mud , dirt, it keeps everything out. Looking forward to winter where I can really test it, but for now I am super pleased with it.
I purchased the Softopper for my '13 Nissan Frontier Pro-4x in January of '21. it lived through snow, rain, and heavy dust with excellent results! I loved the versatility of being able to roll up panels, or fold it against the cab when hauling something tall. Unfortunately, it wasn't fire proof, and neither was my Frontier. I lost it on August 4th while fighting the Dixie fire in Northern California. After this fire is over and I replace my truck, I will absolutely be purchasing another Softopper!
I read the reviews that they don’t respond. But I really wanted the topper so I purchase it anyway. And yep here I am no topper- no phone call- no email- but they have my money… such a shame… all you have to do is communicate with your clients… please refund me my money!- update- 8/19/21 they finally called me and explained the back up and said I would receive the topper by the end of August. I was surprised when it was delivered 8/18/19- and I love it! Really easy to assemble - took me by my self about 45 min to put it on my truck- great material seems to be well made and I am now a happy customer! 👍🏻
So I bought my Softopper back in 2017 because I didn’t like the limitations of my conventional tri-fold top. I also wanted to camp in the bed of my Tacoma, but wasn’t interested in the look or limitations of a fibreglass top.Well four years later I couldn’t be happier, this top performed perfectly for all my needs. I had purchased a screen window as well with camping in mind but found it wasn’t really a necessity for the most part because the fabric breathes like a good tent anyway.Although in hot weather camping it’s nice to have.Pops up in minutes for gravel loads or motorcycles and back again just as easily.Four years of Canadian winters and it still looks great!I followed the directions and sealed the seams and it still is weather tight.The only drawback is thing is a real attentive grabber; get used to other truck owners forever asking you about it. 👍
When I bought my Softopper, I was going Sturgis Bike week and was going to camp out of it, that was before my wife decided we were going to take our camper instead.Since I've had my Softopper, I've had numerous people given me compliments and ask questions about difficulty putting it together and tearing it down. I even demonstrate how easy folding it up.I like my top and am glad that I bought it. I won't go back to an expensive heavy fiberglass top.Well worth the money.
Fantastic Product! Easy to install, looks great, very versatile, and quickly convertible from topper to open bed and back. I find this much more useful, not to mention less expensive, than a hard camper shell. Thanks Softopper!
I couldn’t be happier with my purchase and the customer service I received from Softopper. First, the topper allows me so much flexibility compared to either a hard sided canopy or a tonneau cover. I bought this for a 2014 Chevy to provide extra storage primarily in hunting , fishing and camping applications and originally was looking at hard sided covers. However after looking at the cost deltas between the products for a 7 year old vehicle and the configuration flexibility of the softopper, my decision was easy. Gives me plenty of dry storage when needed but is so easy to configure and remove that I don’t get stuck having a shell on all the time. I was previously thinking I would buy a hard shell when I do buy a new truck but I’ll be purchasing another softopper insteadAs far as customer service goes, I offer the following. Yes, there were delays as I ordered this in mid June with an expected ship date of 8/6. I am leaving for a trip on 8/7 and really wanted to have the topper for it. I called, was able to get a hold of customer service and explained the situation. The woman on the other end of the line could not have been more helpful. She listed to my concerns, made note of it and offered to overnight my order once the materials were available given the supply chain delays. Well, it arrived in 8/3 in plenty of time for my trip. I know others have not had similar experiences based on the reviews below but it sure seems like Softopper is taking the feedback seriously and making positive changes based on my experience. Great product and people!!!
Liking it so far. Took an hour to put on my 2021 Ram Warlock Classic. Instructions super easy went on without a hitch.
I ordered a tan Softoper for my 2020 Ranger long bed last Sunday. Being a Ranger top and in tan, I figured it would be a while before I saw it. This Sunday it showed up, WAY earlier than expected. It was also exactly what I ordered, undamaged and exactly as advertised. Thank you guys for the quality product and for rock solid customer service!
Purchased new with my 2010 F150. Best investment for my trucks in 25 years! It’s keeps the weather off my cargo. Keeps wandering eyes away too. This thing has paid for itself many times over!Now it’s on 2019 F150. I’ve had top stitching reinforced & replaced the windows. After 10 years ZERO complaints!Anytime we’re asked about it. We tell folks “you can thank me later” Love this cap!
Ordered my softopper for my 2020 ram 2500 back on june 1st and received it july 23rd. Shipping did take longer than expected (covid has everything backed up) but customer service was great. Nga went above and beyond to keep me in the loop and even called me to tell me when it was shipped. Received it the next day. As for the top ive got to say, ive never been a canopy guy but i love the topper already! Not only does it look great and the construction is top notch but its great to be able to throw things in the back and not have them flying around.
Great product. Shipped fast. Installation was straight forward. Excellent customer service. Looks good on my 2017 Tacoma.
I had a positive experience.Wait time was only 3 weeks it was easy to install fit and finish was perfect Aloha
I bought the Softopper because of a friend's good experience. The installation instructions are the best I have ever seen, both printed and video. The topper went together smoothly and looks great on my Tacoma. I just finished a trip of over 1200 miles with no issues. I'm glad I bought this product.
Well due to the Pandemic my order was backlogged. Not an issue but when my Topper finally arrived it was the wrong color. An after chatting with their customer service another topper was sent over night with a return label so I could send the first one back. Very impressed with their customer service it is Top notch. An their product is well built. Look forward to using my Topper for many years.
These guys are great. I ordered my SoftTopper last minute during their busiest time of the year. I sent them one message asking the soonest I could receive the topper and was told 6 weeks. I explained my situation and not only did their team rush my order, but they kept me up to date every step of the way as to it's delivery progress. I received my topper in 3 weeks and got it installed this Weekend. It was a piece of cake to put on and looks awesome. I couldn't be happier. I can't wait for our road trip to test it out!
