I can believe that an aero topper would not sell. My aero topper has been on the truck for almost seven years. In that time, a several dozen people have recognized what it does, and have seen the benefits of a lifting lid. A few (3 or 4) have asked where I bought it, under the impression that it was commercially built.

Nobody, not one person, has indicated a desire to have a similar topper on their truck. I contacted Leer at one time and asked about aero toppers. They said they had looked into it, and did not see a demand.
06 Canyon: The vacuum gauge plus wheel covers helped increase summer 2015 mileage to 38.5 MPG, while summer 2016 mileage was 38.6 MPG without the wheel covers. Drove 33,021 miles 2016-2018 at 35.00 MPG.

22 Maverick: Summer 2022 burned 62.74 gallons in 3145.1 miles for 50.1 MPG.
