Your Frequently Asked Questions

How low profile are your roofs?

Our lowest profile roof, the Streamline Super High Lift, Low Profile roof increases the profile of your existing vehicles roof by less than 3 cm while the Slimline is 3cm and the California Lo is 6 cm. We decided to go with a small increase in elevation rather than a completely flush finish to help maintain headroom for passengers within your vehicle and to ensure the rigidity of the roof. This also means that our roofs are less complex and time consuming to fit which will of course save you money while still providing an attractive roofs which has been designed to work with your vans existing profile for a streamline, aerodynamic appearance.

Is there any loss of headroom when the roof is retracted?

Our conversion kits have been designed to maintain volume within your vehicle while providing you with a sympathetic conversion that gives you a similar roof profile to your unconverted van. Some High Lift, Low Profile roof conversions do sacrifice headroom within your vehicle with reductions that can be over 4.5 cms. If you want a completely flush finish and are happy to lose headroom and volume within your tent then you may want to consider other roofs however feedback from our customers and fitters showed that a small increase in van profile was in many cases more preferable to a loss of headroom.

My van is already converted can I replace the existing roof?

Yes it is possible to replace any of our existing roof ranges with one of our Slimline, California or Super High Lift, Low Profile campervan roofs as the retaining frame is the same size. You should consult your fitter or contact us if you have a roof installed from a different manufacturer.

My van is converted but I don't have an elevating roof, can one be fitted?

Normally it is best to have an elevating roof fitted as part of your van conversion however if you already have the interior of your van converted then it will still be possible to have one of our roofs installed. Please note that this may incure additional costs as the fitter may need to remove and replace parts of your conversion to allow the roof to be fitted.
