Also keep in mind that canopies at the lower end price range can tend to get pretty heavy and these could actually cost you more in the long run. These would need extra maintenance and your vehicle would require more maintenance.  Things you should keep in mind include

  • How often would you be using the canopy? Would you be using it on a daily basis or for weekly camping trips?
  • Do you often have to perform off road duties? This could cause a great deal of corrosion if the metal is not weather resistant
  • Would you require a chassis mounted or removable canopy? Removable canopies are more versatile and some designs can be easily mantled and dismantled in less than five minutes However, those tend to be a bit more expensive.

Keeping all the above mentioned things in mind would help you get a Toyota Hilux canopy installed without any issues in the future.
