The Best Canopies for Your Toyota Hilux

The Best Canopies for Your Toyota Hilux

There’s a lot to love about the Toyota Hilux; after all, it’s the ultimate vehicle for work, play and everything in-between. The only thing that would make your Hilux even more suitable for versatile day jobs and jam-packed weekends would be the perfect canopy. Luckily, we know a thing or two about canopies here at Great Racks. So, you can count on us to give you the low-down on choosing the ideal option to transform your trusty ute from top-tier to god-tier in an instant.

Here are some of our best tips for choosing the perfect Hilux canopy:  

Australian-Made- Obviously!

When it comes to choosing the perfect canopy for your Toyota Hilux, you’d want to make sure that you’re sourcing it from a local manufacturer, rather than some bloke overseas. After all, Hilux canopies that are designed and made right here in Australia promise to resist against the harsh weather conditions and environment. You can also enjoy quality assurance, as well as post-sales support. Basically, no matter what kind of brutal jobs or weekend adventures you’ll be tackling week after week, you can rest assured knowing that your canopy will guarantee to hold up to the challenge. All in all, Aussie-made canopies are always the way to go. Plus, buying local means that you can support other fellow tradies in the community!

Consider the Material

You can get canopies for your Hilux made from either aluminium or ‘canvas’ material and each style has its own benefits. The bonus with solid aluminium canopies is they’re dust and waterproof. Downside is they tend to be heavy and more expensive. Plus, they get hot in the summer and you can’t sleep in the canopy. Locking cage canopies are more adaptable. You have the confidence that all your items are locked away securely, you can sleep in there when you’re touring and you can even transport your furry best friend. Locking cages are the perfect mix of pleasure and business. If you’re after a cheaper option to transport your camping gear and to sleep in your ute, a standard frame canopy will do the trick. Adding a tool box under the canopy provides lockable storage and is more economical than a solid canopy.

You can rest assured that whatever option you choose, your canopy will only be made with the best quality materials. Instead of canvas, we use marine hooding which gives a far superior fit and has a longer lifespan than canvas. It doesn’t require waterproofing and it won’t shrink like canvas, which can damage the zips. Marine hooding is designed to be used on boat canopies and so it’s UV-protected and mould-resistant.  Standard frame and locking cage canopies are lightweight options that are highly durable and long-lasting, plus they’re an excellent option for budget-conscious Hilux owners.

Ask for Custom-Made

Unfortunately, canopies aren’t a standardised product. Sure, you can find some canopies out there that claim to be one-size-fits-all; however, these products don’t hit the nail on the head nearly as hard as canopies that are custom-made specifically for Toyota Hilux vehicles. Depending on what type of jobs and activities you’ll be getting up to on the daily, you may want to request for some additional features to be added onto your ute canopy. Pressurising vents, extra tie downs and built-in storage are just some of the many accessories you can choose to incorporate with your Hilux canopy. All our canopies are designed to take a roof rack so you can have even more storage space at your disposal. If you’re unsure about what accessories would best suit your unique needs and requirements, you can always talk to one of our friendly staff members here at Great Racks!

The team did a quality, professional job on the truck racks with a fast turnaround. The courtesy Ute was a great service too. The whole process was easy and I can’t fault their customer service. Quality product and a great business.

We would like to thank Celeste and the team at Great Racks for the excellent job in getting the ute ready, to get a canopy fitted to it. We asked if they could repair a dent and they did at no extra cost. So easy to deal with a company that made it hassle free and accommodating. Thanks to all the team.

I have to say I'm so pleased with the rear bar I had fitted to my commodore ute at GreatRacks. Celeste in the office did such a great job with the paperwork, and I couldn't be more pleased with the end result. The rear bar looks great, fitted exactly where I wanted it and has worked beautifully. The use of the courtesy car was much appreciated and I'd thoroughly recommend this company. Great quality workmanship from the workshop!!

These guys provide outstanding service from the very first phone call to the final outcome - we highly recommend them! Celeste went over and above to accommodate our order even outsourcing another local supplier to make a mattress and cover to fit in the back of the Ute tray. The canopy is super stylish as well as excellent quality. Love supporting this small business that is keeping production alive in Western Australia.

Great Racks have done a fantastic job creating a custom roof rack to suit our needs. From start to finish, the process was easy. The company provides excellent customer service, a courtesy car on the day, and a great end product. Would use Great Racks again and recommend to anyone looking to get a well-made roof rack.

Brilliant service and exceptional quality. From the moment of my very first contact, I knew this was going to be a good experience. My custom made rack was designed, built and fitted to ensure it was sturdy and fit for purpose. The fact that it looks so great is an added bonus. Celeste, Mark, Jack and the whole team at this small family run business were an absolute pleasure to deal with. Nothing was too much trouble and their quality of workmanship was testament to the pride they have in their work and their business. They were friendly, honest and committed to ensuring we received the outcome we needed. I am a very stoked customer and could not be happier with everything they’ve done.

Highly impressed with the workmanship and service I received. My car is a bit odd and they had never done one before, turned out to be no problem for them, they made things uncomplicated and helped me figure out exactly what I needed. The end product looks so classy. Also thanks for mounting the useless little light in the back :)

Had the most amazing customer experience with Great Racks and couldn’t recommend them more! Nothing beats a small family run business.Celeste and Mark were super helpful and accomodating for our needs, providing us with custom solutions for any issues that arose with making our canopy, including a dent in the Ute tray! Mark is a true aluminium specialist and artist. Very quick turnaround, at a great price and the service car was an added bonus. Thanks legends, we love the end result.

Very rare these days to get what you paid for. In this case I definitely got my moneys worth. I cannot fault the service and the professionalism throughout the entire process. Celeste was a pleasure to deal with and her knowledge was outstanding. Received my canopy on schedule and the final result was more that what I expected. Having a loan vehicle was a blessing as I live 50 minutes away from the workshop. My sincere thank you to Celeste, Mark and the team for a job very well done.Outstanding quality of work and a well deserved review.

Absolute professional, honest, knowledgeable and helpful throughout the entire process. From walking in and designing the rack to 4 days later dropping the car off to be completed. Courtesy car was a lifesaver for a tradesman, and my car was back to me the same day.Absolutely stoked with the workmanship and care that's gone into the rack itself, and the way the entire team treated me from start to finish.Couldn't have picked a better company.

I had a canopy with top rack and cover made by the team and can not be happier.Always can be a challenge when you're after a finish that you are trying to achieve, from the get-go nothing was a problem, emails back and forward, rough drawings on my behalf, but the results speak for themselves.I had a face to face and talked with the team onsite and was at ease handing over my Ute for the go ahead to fabricate and install what we agreed on. It's reassuring to come across people who listen to what you say, understand what your after and offer some ideas - all signs of quality and more importantly - experience.I was offered a loan car, time frames agreed on and met, flexibility to pick up at outside hours (due to work my commitments) and the crew working in the factory were happy to have a chat about what they were working on and how to help achieve what I was looking for.I have had a lot of good feedback and comments regarding how good the rack looks, with attention to detail regarding the custom and finer detail stuff.Looking forward to hitting the road with the back loaded up and the boards on top, very shortly.Good job Great RacksPaulybars to hitting the road loaded up soon - Cheers guys

I recently had an outstanding experience with Great Racks, located in Bibra Lake. Mark and his team were incredibly professional, and their workmanship was exceptional. Not only did they work within my budget, but they also exceeded my expectations with the final product. I was thoroughly impressed with their expertise and attention to detail. It's evident that Great Racks is one of the best aluminum fabricators in the industry, and they truly make it seem like nothing is too hard for them. I highly recommend Mark and his team at Great Racks for anyone in need of quality aluminum fabrication services. Thank you, Great Racks, for your excellent work!

Great Racks built our lockable canopy 2 years ago and it is still as perfect as they day they built it. We've travelled heaps of hideously corrugated roads throughout the country and the canopy is still rock solid with no cracked welds or metal fatigue anywhere. We opted for the central locked whale tail latches and they are brilliant and make for locking and unlocking the canopy a breeze. Mark, Celeste and the team are first rate and would definitely recommend them.

Amazing customer service. Starts with Celeste, extremely helpful and accommodating - was even finalising the design at 9pm because I needed it done by the end of the week to drive out. The guys have done a great job, exactly what I asked for and the price is reasonable. Don't bother looking anywhere else.
