Buying bakkie canopies: general considerations

Before buying a bakkie canopy, you first need to determine whether you need one or not. The first consideration should be asking yourself “what do I need this canopy for?” Once you answer that question, you can start looking for a canopy that will fulfil whatever purpose you need it for.

Once you know what you need a canopy for, you can start thinking about other things like the canopy’s aesthetics, its capacity for accessories, as well as technical considerations like strength durability, warranty, and versatility.

Take your time with this, it’s better that you get it right the first time around rather than jumping the gun and wasting your money on something you’ll eventually have to replace. If you need help with these general considerations, don’t hesitate to reach out to us!


Choosing the right bakkie canopy for your needs

Once you know what you need a canopy for, it’s time to start looking at the features and benefits. When choosing a canopy, you’re spoiled for choice; from flexible Sammitr Steel Canopies to tough Rhino Cab Aluminium Canopies, there are so many different types of bakkie canopies to choose from.

Choosing the right type of canopy for your bakkie will also boil down to function, aesthetic, and configuration. For example: low-line bakkie canopies are generally designed to match the height of a bakkie bed to create a clean aesthetic, while space-saver canopies are more useful for service bakkies that need a whole lot of boot space.

You should also consider how you want to fit your canopy onto your bakkie. Will you need a canopy that can be secured firmly onto your bakkie bed, or one that is looser, that can be removed easily? Do you need a heavy canopy that is more durable, or a light one that’s easier to handle?

These are important questions you need to ask yourself before buying a bakkie canopy. Take some time to do some research when looking into the right type of bakkie canopy to invest in, you won’t regret it. To help you get started, check out this blog!
