I've only owned one shell and it was a Glasstite. It was an older model, but similar to their current GT2000 - High Rise model. Even after being 20 years old, I could still get on the top and crawl around to clean or lash stuff (I weigh 200 lbs) without fear of breaking it. The sliding windows would work open on logging roads and let dust in, but I screwed them shut (aluminum frames). The window handles disbonded, but some 3M tape fixed that. The latches and locks worked at least until I sold the truck. Oh, and an errant lawn mower knocked out the rear glass, but I replaced it with Plexiglas.


If I decide to get another shell, I'll look very closely at Glasstite. They have an economy-minded companion brand called Raven. I'm not sure how they differ.
