Convertible Top Replacement

How is it that there is no US availability for a RAV4 replacement soft top? I just bought a jade green 1998 with a very well gorilla-taped soft top that will never fold down. It has plexiglass windows and seems quite weathertight, so fine for this winter. However, I am already dreaming about dropping the top come spring. It looks like my options are local custom fabrication or a german manufacturer and secondary shipping since they wont ship to the US. Why can I buy a top for literally any other type of Toyota, a Tracker, or even a Kia Sportage? Has anyone ever tried to fit a Sportage soft top to the RAV4? Any helpful suggestions or information to aid my topless quest?

The cost of an OEM replacement, even if available, would probably still be astronomical. You could probably have custom reupholstery done by a shop for much less.
