Anyone using Softopper camper shell???(Pics)
« on: Apr 11, 2005, 09:17:05 PM »
I was on ebay and saw an auction for this camper shell that was similar to the canback but like half the cost. It was called the Softopper. Does anyone have this shell? If so how is it?

My thoughts exactly

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free. "

Take some pics and post up. I really want to buy a can back soft top for my pickup but the price is going to kill me.
