Straight lift elevating roof that provides a double bed upstairs, and 183cm of light and airy headspace during the day.
This roof will fit any tin top van or replace any elevating roof. The ideal hole size is 2 metres long by 109 cm wide. If the hole is smaller, we can enlarge it at no extra cost. If the hole is bigger, we will need to place steel back into the steel roof. There will be an additional charge for this.
The roof comes as a kit which would take a practical DIYer 3 days to fit.
If you are having it supplied as a kit, it comes fully assembled, with headlining, gas struts, seals, locking straps, canopy and support framework 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 also comes with comprehensive fitting instructions, and Pete at the end of the phone if you have any queries.

For fitting - we can either do this for you, or we can recommend a number of fitters in the UK and abroad. Any good garage should be able to do this for you too. We supply comprehensive fitting instructions, with Pete at the end of the phone if you have any queries.
For fitting, 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.
A 3mm mild steel framework is attached down both sides of the cut steel hole, and across the rear. This provides longitudinal strength and also provides support for the bed. An extra shaped 3mm cross member is fixed to the rear of the hole to add the strength back to the roof and retain the shape of the curved roof. The fibreglass roof is fitted with four external gas struts and has an internal aluminium lifting framework at either end so the roof is stable in all weathers.
The framework is designed to lift the roof by approx 75 cm. Once the roof is fitted it will add approximately 14 cm to the height of your van. The hole in your steel roof will be 200 cm x 110 cm.
