Canopy

This is my first postpost in this forum please don't be hard on my.

In July I hope to get my first four wheel drive, not sure yet what make but it be a tray model as I am going to put a canopy on it but not sure what to get aluminium of fibreglass.  Only want two doors but got to have a dogbox in the front. /Lift off with jacksjacks or permanently fixed. Would it make a great deal of difference in fuel consumption if it stay on?         I would be traveling a lot over corrugated road therefore it would have to be solid built.

Secondly : refrigeration. I am  tossing up between a small upright or one I can put in a cradle. Been sweating on this for a little while now here on the gold coast

I cincerely hope some one in this forum could put some light on this for me

Hi Casey and welcome on board. I hope you like it here. You might actually lower your fuel consumption by using a canopy because of better aerodynamics (I am just guessing here). Most of the ones I've seen are fibre glass and I am not sure if aluminium has any advantages over it (besides it will only dent and not break like fibre glass does).
