Since we're talking about purchasing used toppers here I thought I'd relay my buying experience. If you are looking for deals on used toppers keep an eye on the local used car lots. I was able to buy an aluminum topper for $200.00 that new would have cost almost $800.00. I had to replace the screens in the side windows and I chose to paint the topper to match the truck. It was silver when I bought it so I could have left it and it wouldn't have looked too bad. The topper was on a truck that was sitting on the back of the lot because the truck was a little beat up. I stopped in to the car lot and just made the salesman an offer on the topper. I told him I'd even take it off his truck and transfer it to mine myself. He took my offer and two days latter I drove by the same car lot and the truck was still sitting in the back row with the same price still in the window. It was $200.00 profit for him and he still could sell the truck for his original price.
