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.

Whether you just want to do a little or you want to tackle most jobs yourself, we'll be there to support you every step of the way through our free Supported Self-Build program and our online

 

Self-Build webshop

You can download a free step-by-step guides from our webshop to see exactly what's involved, and we have a huge array of DIY self-build parts and kits available.

We love self-builders!

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

  • HiLo roofs also lift much higher than other roof systems, allowing you to sleep with your head to the rear of the van (much easier to get up and down)

Disadvantages

  • Reduces the internal head height

  • Requires a roof bed and other features, so comes with a higher starting price

  • A little more involved to put up and take down, due to more fastenings
