Out of interest have you heard of any company supplying the hard “trickman” style canopies yet ??

When I looked at one, I convinced myself it was way too long overall, however I have just checked against the 2024 Ranger and it’s only abou 80mm longer, so not as unwieldy as I thought.
To funny, on my To do list, I will be sending out emails to different canopy providers to see if the QM has made their development lists. I will complie a list and post it here similar to what we see for the Australian aftermarket lists.

That’s gonna be a tough one. I like RSI. They’re made in South Africa. Maybe there will be enough demand in the EU and AU for them to take notice.

Did your dealer give you an ETA?

RSI was temporarily made in the US as well, until their factory burned to the ground based on what I was told in 2022

I think their Fort Worth facility is up and running. I had a dealer check stock for my Gladiator very recently. There was something like 24 Gladiator EVO tops available in the US. Previously, I waited almost two years for my ‘22 Tundra topper - I believe that was due to COVID and a mishap at Fort Worth factory. BTW, the prices have nearly doubled since 2020…

No eta except Q4 or Q1. If it follows the launch of the SW in the US, I figure if q 4 happens it will be Nov or Dec. If not Jan.

I'll update the canopy page I created but https://www.acc16-by-dls.com/hardtop-toit-fixe-xtremetravellerv2.html
Is making one that I really like. It looks good. Also MITS Alloy Austrila responded and they will not be making a flat tray or canopy for the QM at this moment. They are happy with existing line up.

Received a call from my dealer yesterday seeing if I had a questions on my QM order. Said no and asked if it went into production. Not yet, he did say that they will get their demo model in Sept. Asked if I wanted to be put on the list for a test drive. I said of course. This leads me to believe if demo shows up in Sept, we could figure a Nov delievery. Keep in mind the demo are used to make sure USA manufacturing is running smoothly before launch.

Just received a call from EBA, they locked in my order and no changes can happen. When discussing color, they mentioned I could do Devil Red as the USA QM will be 2025 models. They are starting the 2025 with US before moving on. I ended up doing SW. I like the DR but it reminded me of my Mom's 1991 Celica that had She Devil as a license plate. Total PTSD
