There are cheap toppers, "decent" toppers, and really nice toppers. I wanted the best, so mine is a Leer 100XQ. On the 100 XQ, Leer has options for
Front Slider Window
Removable Front Picture Window
Removable Front Slider Window
LEER Truck Caps, Toppers and Camper Shells
Mine is on a 6.5' bed of a 2012 F-150. I paid full retail of $1,989 plus a couple of options and TT&L. I'm sure you could get that price down to $1,700 or so with some negotiating, or shopping around to other Leer dealers on the internet. And probably less than $1,500 for a different Leer model.
Note that the Leer 100XQ toppers are painted at the factory to exactly match the truck, so dealers don't usually stock more than one demo.
