Enquire about this roof
Our T2 Westy Style Elevating roof comes with a 183 cm long x 110 cm wide bed platform. Over the cab area is a separate luggage rack. Our roof has the same look, feel and dimensions of the original Westfalia roof, but it is easier to raise and lower as we use external gas struts and scissor hinges.

Will this fit my van?

This roof will fit any tin top van or replace any elevating roof on a Baywindow van from 1969 to 1980. If the current hole in your steel roof is too small, no worries, we can make it bigger. If the hole is too big, we can make it smaller at an extra cost. The ideal hole size is 236 cm long by 110 cm wide.

DIY kit

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, 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 also comes with comprehensive fitting instructions, and Pete 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 £1.30 per mile  plus vat.  (So if you live 100 miles away, the cost is £130 plus vat.). We also export around the world.  Please contact us for a quote.

If you would like a quote for international shipping or haulage, please contact us.

one day fit

We can fit our roofs to some vans in one day, (extra cost is £250 plus vat). This service can only be provided for tin top vans or where you have removed your existing roof. Contact Pete on 07970 868059 or pete@spaceroofs.co.uk to talk through this service.

fitting option

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 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. Call Pete on 07970 868059 or email pete@spaceroofs.co.uk

framework & strengthening

The hole required in the steel roof of your van runs from just in front of the rear cross member to just behind the front cross member. A 3 mm mild steel framework is then fixed down both sides and across the rear of this hole. This framework strengthens the roof hole and supports the rear section of the bed. A powder coated steel cross member is then fitted in place of the old factory cross member to support the rear bed section and also to put the strength back into the steel roof.

Measurements

The hinges are designed to lift the front of the roof by 109cm and the back of the roof by 25cm. Once the roof is fitted to your van, it adds approx 10 cm to the height of your van when closed.
