POP TOPS INSTALLED BY BIG V

Elevating/pop top roofs are split into two main categories:

 

  • Surface roofs - the most popular of which is Skyline

  • Hidden, stealth, or flush roofs - the most famous of which is Hilo

 

Big V Kampers installs both types and from various manufacturers. Each has advantages and disadvantages, and some are only produced for certain makes, models, and ages of vans.

We can add a pop top to an empty panel van, an existing campervan, and can even take off your old elevating roof and replace it with a new, modern one! We also repair pop top roofs, including replacing canvases.

Fancy working on your van?

Surface Roofs

Advantages

  • Classic design proven over decades

  • Simple operation to raise & lower

  • With a roof bed installed, provides a large storage space when the roof is down

  • Usually less expensive to buy

Disadvantages

  • Increases the vehicle's height

  • Usually requires sleeping with your head to the front of the van (so getting up and turning around)

  • Some people don't like the look of a surface roof on their van

  • Clearly marks your van as a camper, making stealth camping harder

Hidden/Stealth Roofs

Advantages

  • Looks almost invisible when lowered

  • Hardly raises the height of the van at all, allowing for a total height under 2 metres

  • High lifting for more upstairs space!

Disadvantages

  • No storage space for bedding
