Here are some of their stories...
“I bought a new truck in 1999 but waited until 2003 to buy a canopy. I should have bought it right away, though. It’s a custom size because on BC Ferries, until recently, you used to have to pay for overheight. I’ve used this canopy for everything. I’ve hauled two boats at once, one on the roof and one in the unit itself, I’ve hauled logs in it, I’ve used it as a ladder, and I’ve hit trees with it. My son’s girlfriend actually ran into the garage with it but all it did was damage the garage. There isn’t one crack in it yet! Every year I go on a camping trip way into the wild and I feel secure in it. There’s no condensation compared with some of those campers. I’ve been on the roof a number of times. It’s tough and you can go anywhere. Here we are in 2017 and I’m buying a new truck and transferring the canopy onto it. I love this canopy and I won’t ever be selling it.”

"I have one of your canopies on my 1982 Toyota longbox pickup...(I live in the Yukon)...I have enjoyed my canopy for many years, and have a smug sense of satisfaction every time a see a disintegrating rival brand canopy."
- D. Currie
"It’s been one year since I’ve had my slide-in fiberglass canopy for my truck. I have fitted a folding bed which is removable. The canopy/camper has proved to be great for our fishing and hunting trips as all other equipment can be stored under the bed. I’d also like to mention that your service has been excellent. Thanks."

"The unit is working out very well! Fibermold and Patrick both did a great job! I should have done this 10 years ago. Thanks."
- Charlie Wray, Portland Prairie Embryo Services
"Thanks for a great product. I thought at the time it was a lot of money—but now I believe it was one of my best buys ever. Thanks to all of you at Horizon Fibermold."
- Dennis Baitz, President, The Door Pro
"The big deal is that my Fibermold canopy outlasted 3 trucks & over 400,000 km. Yes, it gave me great service and helped me build my business from a one man band to a formidable company. I now employ fourteen people. These last couple of years I haven’t been on the road much, and that’s why I’m going to sell the unit. I figure after 10 years I’ll only lose 25-40%…and that’s if someone really ‘grinds’ me."
"I have been using the Tufport™ Mobile Treatment Center (MTC) since day one of my company. It is hard to believe that 11 years have flown by. I have always thought that you should buy the best quality to give your business and customers the maximum potential. The Tufport MTC is a superior unit and has enabled me to build a strong reputable company. The fiberglass unit is used as an industrial ambulance in the oil patch. The units hold up very well in the north. They have stood up well on bump treacherous roads, extreme weather conditions, and the odd accident. Never to have wrecked the integrity of the unit. They are light weight, easy to clean and never show their age. In the ever changing medical industry, Tufport™ has always kept one step ahead with their product and new regulations. They have always been interested in how the MTC is working for me and have used suggestion to improve and tailor for oil patch needs. The units always out last the trucks. They are easy to transfer and always look good on a Chevrolet. (preferably burgundy). I highly recommend them not only for their product, but also for their customer service."

"I took your advice and contacted Jennifer Walker and looked at the T55. I liked it so much I bought it and had the camper attached to the frame of my 2001 GMC Sonoma. What makes the T55 superior to other campers, in my opinion, is 1.) its light weight, 2.) bare-bones shell allowing the buyer to furnish his own appliances for his own needs and 3). no license for Washington State since under five feet high. Also 4.) the high-quality door that can be locked, unlocked and opened from the inside and 5.) it comes with no windows on the sides if you prefer privacy."

"Tony bought his first Fibermold (before it was Tufport™) canopy in 1998 and used it for his concrete cutting and sawing business. He recently brought it back to the factory for further modifications and the pictures show that the canopy is still functional and excellent condition. He was putting his refurbished canopy on his FOURTH truck, having outlasted three previous trucks with 380,000 km behind him. “I looked at a 20 year old Fibermold canopy and it was just as strong as the day it was built. It’s a one-time investment and you’re good to go”. He looked at other truck canopies and found that the Tufport™ canopies utilized the space well, were very durable and had the highest capacity versus the canopy with sloped sides, therefore losing important storage space. Tony has used his Tufport™ canopy for ATV storage, seven years as a Cub Scott leader to travel with the all the Cubs and their gear for outdoor trips."

"Well, wouldn’t you know it—10 years just flew by. I thought you should know that since I bought my first Fibermold canopy—custom lift gate included—I have received hundreds of compliments on the ‘sturdy appearance’; ‘nice looking’; and ‘perfect for your kind of work’ canopy. That kind of makes a guy feel...‘OK’"
"In 2000 I had one of your Fibermold slide-in units installed on my 1 ton Ford 4x4. I travel on gravel roads daily running my logging operation and have to say that my Fibermold has stood up really well, with no signs of cracking or hardware coming loose, not like some of the other caps I have tried ... Keep up the good work."

"On April 24th, 2010, a medic with CALA was driving home from a nightshift on Hwy 881 from Fort McMurrary to Lac La Biche, Northern Alberta. She is an experienced driver with formal driver training (NAPD) and was no stranger to the icy and slushy road conditions that occurred that night. To avoid a deer on the road, the driver braked and swerved. The truck slid off the road into a ditch and then went up the embankment before completely rolling over and coming to rest on the driver side of the truck. The one- ton truck was a write-off. The Tufport Medical MTC had only sustained a few minor cracks in the overcab portion of the unit. In fact, the overcab on the MTC prevented the truck cab from being crushed, potentially saving the life of the driver inside the truck at the time of the accident. Additionally, the overcab prevented the windshield from breaking protecting the driver from broken glass. The interior of the MTC did not sustain any damage. Colleen Wiebe is the owner of CALA Environment, Safety and Wellness, located in Lac La Biche. Her industrial medical fleet consists of 16 Tufport Medical MTC’s. She purchased her first MTC in 2005 and has never looked back. “This accident has demonstrated that the Tufport Medical MTC is the toughest. It is able to withstand a complete rollover and still remain completely intact with little damage and is a testament to the quality of the unit."
