Yes, very familiar.

In an arguement between a tree branch and one of those canopies, the tree usually wins......


Best of luck.

Murf,
What kind of bracing does it have underneath the canopy
that makes it FSOB? looks like some type of 45 degree
angle brace coming off the ROPS.It seems as though it wouldn't take much to be better that a fiberglass one ?
I have requested some more info if any one is interested
let me know. Prices are about the same as factory units.

I had a Curtis once that turned into a sail when I folded my ROPS on a CC 7275. The result was cracked fiberglass and an angry owner. That is one heck of a cantilever that has little support. The FOPS I had on the L35 was a four post support system, that worked much better.
