I think those curved plastic windows are only on older toppers. Or perhaps they are only on aluminum toppers. I really liked my fiberglass topper with the long side windows -- never had a problem with visability.

I have an '05 Chev 2500HD CC with an EXTANG solid fold plus a lock on the tailgate. Security plus room for supplies (which I usually store in plastic tubs) and golf clubs

Cab high fiberglass camper shell with a bed liner. Enough room for anything inside, bikes etc., and I can put racks on top for the dory. When camping room for extra everything; the screen house, picnic table and benches, satellite dish and tripod, wine beer, stove, grill extra propane tank, fishing gear, etc, etc.

Easy and light enough to take off (with help) if I need to haul a giraffe .

Get a Chevy Avalanche - they come with a 3 piece hard tonneau from the factory.

We started with an "Undercover" tonneau cover. Easy to remove and worked well. But after purchasing our trailer, I switched to a cab hi canopy. We wanted to keep our bikes undercover (a lot cleaner and more secure) and I was hoping the aerodynamics of a canopy might be better than a tonneau cover when towing.

We sometimes take our 17' canoe, depending on where we go, so this is what we have.
