I would think any good Trailer building establishment would have a go at that.

What's your budget they don't come cheap you're probably looking at 20k plus
20k for just a canopy not fitted out? I haven't had any prices that high thankfully, it's more trying to find a shop I might have missed that can build me one before christmas

Depends on what your after if replacing the tray with a full custom canopy/tray the skies the limit. But if fitting just an alloy canopy one similar to 45/70 then start at a couple of thousand and add on extras from there like I did several yrs ago. If your handy at doing things you can set it up how you want but if you find someone that sells them pre done it's dearer but easier and faster if they have stock. But be wary depending on your vehicle don't put too much weight behind the rear axle like lots of people tend to do because usually the people selling canopies don't care they just want your money it's up to you to keep it safe to drive and handle correctly on road getting the balance right is very important. Most people think you fix it by getting the biggest gvm upgrade available but that can and will create other unwanted issues depending on the vehicle.

Just don’t use checker plate. Worst material to look at. Crap to clean.

Who cleans them I just hit mine with the Gerni you don't want it shiny all the time too much glare on the eyes plus that dull look may help to keep the sea gulls away.

Looking for recommendations from someone who has had one built from a company and been happy as opposed to just googling. Also want them to be max 2hrs from Brisbane
