    Avalanche Rear Topper/Cover??

    I don't know whether this is an aftermarket deal or what........but yesterday as I was watchin the stream of cars come down the overpass, headed towards the football stadium.....I spied a white Avalanche (possibly an Escalade EXT) with what looked like a Topper/Cover over the rear section.

    This striked me as odd, because never had I seen any of these vehicles w/this kind of accessory (even on Chevy's website). If I would have been a little quicker w/the camera, I'd have a few shots to share.


    *(Realised too late I posted this in the wrong section. My apologies!!)

    That seems kinda worthless, not to mention its ugly. If you need something like that, just buy a Suburban and take all but the front seats out, you can do that correct?

    nah, i can see its uses, when u have the midgate down, now the cab isnt exposed to the elements and everythings locked up. and when u need the bed height u can take it off- adds to the versatility of the avalanche.

    I am interested in getting a topper for my 2003 Chevy Avalanche. Does anyone know where to get them in MN?

    SnugTop is who makes the cap for the Avalanche & Escalade EXT, both last gen and current. See their site for more details & to find a dealer:

    http://www.snugtop.com/products/xuv.php

    Ex Av owners ourselves, we had friends with a SnugTop Av and they loved it...SO many cargo possibilities. Stuff in the bed, Midgate up/down partially or full, keep the cargo covers in and have 2 "floors" for stuff enclosed by a roof or remove them for Suburban-like space, etc.

    If you can't find a dealer via their link, email them or just search for local SnugTop dealers and you'll find something.

    IMO they *******ize the whole look of the Avalanche. I'd be ashamed to ruin that truck with it on.
