The plastic Cali Topper fits over the pop up roof and has been around for a while now. I've never noticed much flapping noise from it, but I did have extra Tie-Down holes made in it so it is fixed a lot more firmly on than it possibly would have been. We've had ours for about 3½ years now. The Cali-Wrap that Comfortz sell looks similar to the Rainbow one. It fits closely around the PopTop canvas and acts as insulation. If the shop is planning an Open Day at Chesterfield this year towards the end of the season, pop over to them and have a look. The staff up there can show you the different types available.
Are you coming to the Dorset Meet at the end of September? I shall have both types in our Cali and I can show you them if that helps.
Better to wait and look first than to buy and rarely use it.

Alas, we can't make the meet in September as I'm away in... California. Ha! The irony. But we'll be sure to look out for these meets in future. Thanks for your advice. Hugely appreciated!

Yes it is expensive setting up, we’ve spent a fortune!
We have the Rainbow front drop down & rear screen covers they are excellent quality, we highly recommend them . We had ours personalised, an additional small cost but we will have them for years.
That's great to know, thanks BeagleMum! I really like the look of Rainbow.

as was said earlier try and
have a weekend away first then decide what you might need. 5years in and we cary about a jird of what we had in the First year. It also depends on where we are pitching up.
Ie this weekend campsite within walking distance of village with numerous restaurants = no bbq
Weather forecast hot would mean no external topper. Etc etc
