What are the Benefits of Having a Dual Cab Canopy?
If you’re lucky enough to have a dual cab ute parked in your garage right now, it’s safe to say that you’re probably enjoying the best of all possible worlds; plenty of room for up to five passengers, a rooftop well suited to roof racks, a chassis for bucket loads of storage and even solid towing capabilities. That said, it really comes as no surprise to find that dual cab utes are considered to be something of an ultimate vehicle for both tradies and outdoor adventurers alike.
Whether you’re using your dual cab for work or outdoor adventuring, a dual cab canopy is an excellent way to make your dual cab ute even better suited for weekday jobs, weekend shenanigans, or anything in-between.
Here are the benefits of adding a dual cab canopy to your vehicle:
Plenty More Storage
If you want to increase the load capacity of your vehicle even further, then installing a dual cab canopy is a great way to do so. With the additional vertical storage space, you’ll be able to stack even more items and tools into the back of your ute. Having extra storage space is always a massive win whether you’re a tradie, a camper, or anyone else with heftier storage needs. Even if you’re part of a large family, a dual cab canopy can help to accommodate for all the extra luggage during road trips or holidays. And let’s not forget the furry members of your family. Having a canopy to protect your best friend from the sun whilst still enjoying the wind in his whiskers AND not having dog hair and dirt in the cab – that’s a win for everyone.
If there’s one thing that almost all ute owners can relate to, it’s having a hard time trying to find particular items once they’ve been chucked into the abyss of your chassis. Alternatively, if you want to cut down on the amount of time it takes for you to find important tools, a dual cab canopy is the key to better organisation. Whether you’re on the job or exploring the great outdoors, you won’t have to waste time digging around in the back of your car.
Protection for Your Gear
Unless you’ve got a tonneau cover over your chassis, all the wonderful stuff you store in there is going to be fair game for the harsh elements and weather conditions. But these covers can quickly deteriorate, and they don’t always protect the tools in your chassis well enough from the grubby little hands of thieves. So, if you want to keep all your essential gear protected and in place, you’re going to need something a little more difficult to conquer.
Again, high-quality dual cab canopies with robust locks are the perfect solution, whether you want to keep your gear shielded from the rain, sun, or even dodgy strangers off the street. A canopy will also help to secure your tools and equipment and prevent them from sliding around in your chassis and smashing into one another while driving. Naturally, this will also help to keep them in better condition for longer.
Not all of us will want to stick with the same vehicle for the rest of our lives. But we’re not going to let our beloved ute go for peanuts either when the time comes to sell. If you want to get as much money back for your ute as possible, adding a dual cab canopy can help to convince some potential buyers that your car is worth paying a little bit more for. As long as you ensure to take good care of your canopy over the years, you can expect it to remain in tip top condition and boost the overall value of your ute.
