You need to get some information that takes account of local weather conditions. Try to find a local company that does vehicle conversions for example.

The situation for cars is not the same, because they are not intended to be left open in bad weather for long periods and people only open them at their own risk, but you need liability insurance if customers standing under the open roof are injured.
