A Turret Top roof for your VW T1 Splitscreen, a modern take on the Westfalia SO42 with a wide choice of canopy colours. Provides headspace so you can get changed or cook standing up!
Our Turret Top roof will fit on any VW Splitscreen van apart from sunroof models and Sambas.
The VW Splitscreen roof comes as a kit which would take a practical DIYer 3 days to fit, or it can be fitted by ourselves, or at any good garage (see our fitters list for garages across the UK and Europe who have previously fitted our roofs).
If you are having the roof supplied as a kit, it comes fully assembled, with headlining, hinges, handles, seals, locking straps, and canopy already fitted. We supply everything down to nuts, bolts, pop rivets, etc. The only thing you should need to buy is a tube of silicone sealant.
The kit comes with comprehensive fitting instructions, and with us at the end of the phone if you have any queries.
Simon, our man with a van, can deliver a roof to you anywhere in the UK for £1.65 per mile plus vat (so if you live 100 miles away, the cost is £165 plus vat).
If you would like a quote for international shipping or haulage, please contact us.
We can fit our roofs to some VW Splitscreen vans in one day (cost is an additional £250 plus vat). This service can only be provided for tin top vans, or where you have removed your existing roof. Contact email@example.com to talk through this service.
For fitting - we can either do this for you, or we can suggest a number of fitters in the UK and abroad. Any good garage should be able to do this for you too.
For fitting in our workshop, we ask to have your van for a week and customers usually bring their van down on a Friday or Saturday and collect the following Friday or Saturday. Thinking of holidaying whilst you are in Devon? We can fit your roof in a shorter timescale if your van and current roof meet certain criteria. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
The hole cut in the steel roof of the van is approximately 95cm (37 inches) x 84cm (33 inches) and runs between both the front and middle cross members. As no cross members are removed, the roof does not need any additional strengthening. We supply a plywood framework that is fitted around the cut hole. This enables the area to be trimmed.
The hinges are designed to lift the roof by 50cm (20 inches). The standing area the roof offers is around 95cm (37 inches) x 84cm (33 inches). When the roof is closed it adds approx 14cm to the height to your van.
