Types of Camper Tops
Camper tops are generally classified based on the types of materials they are made of and also based on their units. There are generally four types of Camper tops namely the hard top shells, soft top shells, single unit and multi unit shells. Hard tops shells are made of tough materials and thus are more durable, strong and rigid. Hard top shells generally have windows on their rear and sides for ventilation purpose. Soft top shells are made out of canvas and thus are less durable but more flexible than hard top shells. Soft top shells have zipped sides that can be rolled down and rolled up whenever necessary instead of windows. Soft top shells are less sturdy but are easier for storage. It is possible to dismantle multi unit shells into separate parts but cannot be done the same with single unit shells.
