I would say yes. Although, where I am at it gets a lot colder during the winter. It does take a few hours to intall, but its well worth it for me. You also have to think about storing it somewhere when you take it off for the nicer weather. Hope that helps!

I'd say a definite yes. I know many will contend that its no more water tight than a badger soft top, but I'd rather save any soft top from the wear and tear of the colder months. Also, as a small consideration, places like uhaul wont rent trailers to you if you have a canvas top.

I agree with the above posts. I have had no problems and the leaks on mine are very minimal, as long as you do a good job sealing it after bolting on. I have no problem staying warm with the stock heater and the fiberglass top, even at single digit temps. It does need alot of space to store when off, I hang mine from my garage ceiling when not in use, and it can break easily if not handled properly. I would recommend it to you any time.
