Everything you need to know about an aluminium Ute canopy
The Dunn & Watson aluminium Ute canopy is a quality product manufactured right here in Australia. It’s ideal for tradies, campers and 4WD enthusiasts, in fact anyone who wants to get out on the road for work or play will benefit from one of our 4×4 aluminium canopies. It’s also a very lightweight construction, so it won’t pose a problem with your Ute’s GVM (not unless you overpack it!) and it can stand up to the rough and tumble of just about anything you can throw at it!
As one of the leading aluminium Ute canopy manufacturers in Australia, we make sure that our canopies come with heaps of extras, so you can customise your canopy to suit your needs. Since our canopies are manufactured in Australia, we provide a nationwide customer care and support service to our customers. This is an important point because many local manufacturers won’t repair imported canopies, leaving you struggling to find the type of specialist help you need. So always buy local and you’re good as gold!
Where can I collect my new canopy?
You can collect your new aluminium canopy from any of our capital cities; repairs and additions are available throughout Australia as well (not just in Brisbane where we are located). We charge a $79 fee for fitting the canopy to your vehicle, which we can do in QLD, VIC and NSW. In SA and WA, however, you can only pick up and collect your new canopy, we don’t have any fitting services in those states. We make buying, repairing and customising your new aluminium canopy easy and stress free!
Features of our aluminium Ute canopy
Our quality canopies are made from tough 2.5mm aluminium checkerplate and gas strut assisted doors for easy opening and closing. The swing doors also come with a stainless steel piano hinge and a nylon cover to give added protection from dust and moisture. Then there’s the stainless steel folding T-handles, weather seals around the doors and a braced frame (including the doors) for added strength and to prevent any twisting.

Why do I need a 4×4 Ute canopy?
A canopy lets you store all your gear securely in the back of your Ute or 4WD. The key lockable doors ensure that everything is stowed safely away from opportunistic thieves. We can also install a custom made drawer system designed specifically for your needs, making it easy to access whatever you need quickly. You can also have two or three doors in your canopy and we can even manufacture it from 3.0mm flat alloy instead of 2.5mm or 3.0mm checkerplate if that’s what you want. Our canopies can be manufactured for on-road conditions, semi off-road or complete off-road conditions, just let us know what you need!
We can also manufacture canopies for single or dual cabs, and you can have a canopy sized for a dual cab installed in the back of a single Ute to give you enough open space to store large or cumbersome items. It’s fair to say that the ideal setup for your canopy will be different from anyone else’s. It will depend on whether you want to use your truck for work, camping or for driving down rough 4WD tracks in the bush. Every extra we add to your canopy is also tested by Dunn & Watson to make sure that it’s of the highest quality.
Installing an aluminium Ute canopy not only makes it easier to carry heavy loads in the back, but it can also add a significant amount of value to your vehicle. Aluminium is resistant to wear and tear, as well as being less prone to rusting than other materials, and can be installed quickly and easily. No matter what type of aluminium canopy you install in your vehicle, you will massively increase its functionality. Increased security, super organised storage systems and protection against the weather are all great reasons to consider installing a canopy in your vehicle. When all is said and done, an aluminium Ute canopy makes driving your truck a sheer pleasure, knowing that it looks smart and keeps everything stowed away safely.
Custom or standard Ute canopy?
Dunn & Watson manufacture a standard canopy made from 2.5mm checkerplate – marine grade aluminium 3003 series. These are 3-door canopies suitable for dual cabs, single cabs and extra cab Utes. If one of these doesn’t suit your needs, we can custom manufacture a canopy to suit your vehicle and your specific requirements. Simply give us a call or fill out one of our custom quote forms and we can give you a quote as soon as possible..
What extras can I have added to my aluminium Ute canopy?
Whatever you need added to your canopy, we can design and manufacture it for you. As an example, you can have a dual bar or three bar roof rack, even a heavy duty option is also available. Under-tray drawers, jerry can holders, drop down ladders, spare wheel carriers, slide out kitchens, water tanks, fridge slides, wheel arches, power boards, inverters, clip on tables, canopy roof rack tents, tub slides, roof baskets, toolboxes, windows and every type of drawer system you could possibly need! We can even manufacture a lift off system for your canopy so you can park it, drive out and use the full back of your tray, then drive back underneath the canopy and reload it. There’s also a Dunn & Watson tourer tray that’s custom built to your requirements and can be fitted with a canopy on top.
