Gonna get either a roller shutter or mountain top cover for my dmax rather than my canopy I have now. Which do people find the best and most handy ?

They reckon you can get some roller tops that are waterproof? And I guess with a roller top you can roll it back for putting big stuff in

Feed rep I used to work with had a roll top on his Ford ranger. Put a tonne pallet of feed in the back and put it over the weighbridge. The back axle loading was far higher than the legal limit due to not being able to push the pallet far enough forward because of the roll top.
