Thanks for the tip. It's definitely on my list of places to go.

I have read some recent bad reviews about this NC company on another forum. You may want to look elsewhere.

That's funny they provide lots of tops to the industry so I can't see that they do bad work. I don't know the situation you are talking about... But you might want to add a link to back up your statement...

Ahh, i was wondering about if it was the same as opt overland. Sent them a FB message once with no response.

Anyways, a good looking mid level height poptop is what the people want! 14" might be a little on the high side, but all that storage room on the bed whil traveling sure would be nice.

Any ideas how it secures to the van during travel? Similar to SMB?

Yes you latch it on the inside, I don't have pictures of the latch but it's nice and clean. Plus because this top uses 4 actuators to lift, it pulls down nice a snug and you could drive it with out latching it. Other awesome feature of 4 actuators is your top goes up straight and comes down straight. Once I finish my top I'll do a video of the interior and all it's features. Mines gonna be a little over the top since I'm popping my 24" Grandsport Basecamp. We'll have the best of both worlds (at least to me) be able to stand and walk thru that van with top down (6'3" interior headroom vs 5'7" of interior room on the 14"), winter camp and be plenty warm since we don't have to pop the top, but can pop the top in the summer and enjoy the breeze. She's gonna be a beast!!

My only complaint with Opt Overland pics is they are all black and white. Can you ask them to post some pics in color?
