Bestop vs Softopper

Anyone have any input on these two soft tops? Looks for something easily removable. Looking for pics if anyone had any as well.

I always liked those but never saw one in person, or spoke to anyone that owned one.

Can you give me a little feedback on it? Does it flap? How's the fit & finish? Is the framework sturdy?

I like the way they look and the fact that you can roll the sides.

Got any pics?

softopper

I have a 2006 mega cab with the softopper and it works great. Easy on and off. I had a fifthwheel hitch in the bed so I needed something that could go on and off quickly. I've had it for three years now with no problems. I would highly recommend it.

I'm interested in these as well. Any pics of the install process and final results would be greatly appreciated. I have always liked toppers but I often haul tall loads or tow a gooseneck trailer, so a fold down topper would be better than a tonneau cover but not a PITA to remove like a hard topper.

Can you post up pics on the interior and exterior please? I'd greatly appreciate it.

I don't have any pictures of my truck with the topper on but you can see what it looks like on Softopper.com. I have people stop me every week and ask about the top, so much so that my wife thinks that I should sell them. If you need something that can go on and off fast this will fit the bill.
