    Pdubz HiLo reviews?

    Anyone got any experience (good or bad) with Pdubz in Stevenage, potentially looking to get a HiLo install done by them towards the end of the year and from reading the various threads a HiLo is all about the installer. Cheers

    Anyone fitted a solar panel to a Hilo roof?

    Has anyone fitted a solar panel to a Hilo roof? Wondering how you went about it, roof bars or bonded direct to roof etc...and which way you ran the cabling etc. When the roof is up on a Hilo there is quite a big gap to bridge from the back end of the roof and the tailgate so wondering how people...

    Is Hilo roof too low for RIB bed? RIB/HiLo Combination

    Hello fellow T6ers. I'm having a hilo fitted right now to our SWB T6 and have a RIB 112 on order. Jason at Jaibow informed me when I dropped off my van to him about the RIB seat being particularly high and potentially an issue. Something that I hadn't realised. Due to covid I hadn't been able to...

    HiLo or SkyLine?

    Hi all I’m currently going with aurora as my conversion company use these but I’m more set on Hilo , love the fact it drops so not visible as a pop top from outside. The company I’m going with on conversion question reliability of Hilo and say it quite significantly reduces internal area when...

    HiLo pop top - rain holes?

    Hi all anyone know where the holes at the front under the HiLo roofs go? They gave us little plugs to fill them with when it rains but they are a terrible fit and loads of rain water gets down them... headed somewhere down the A pillar? Anything to worry about?

    Wanted HiLo Roof

    I know lot of people have problems with their hilo roofs, but I would still like the low profile roof pop top on my van. I'm an Engineer at a well known car company in R&D, so I should be able to overcome any of the current problems. If anyone has had enough of theirs and wants to sell it on...

    HiLo Pop Top Gel-Black Roof on Pearl Black T6? Plus general HiLo poptop thoughts

    Hello all, Second post - almost 3 years since I posted a question when considering buying my T6! Well, I bought it, and it's been completely un-loved while I renovated our first house (complete gutting, back to brick level!). The house is done now, and I'm gearing up to convert my van. Have...

    Titan bed alternative?

    We've reached the rear seat/bed part of our conversion and had our eye on a Titan bed. We have a Hilo roof and the Mrs has short legs so wasn't keen on how high the rib beds sit and the Titan is removable as it's a daily and occasionally used as a van. Is there any alternatives or are we best...

    Roof rails and HiLo pop-tops

    I want to fit roof rails to my HiLo. Mainly so I can mount a replaceable solar panel between 2 bars but perhaps some lighter carry duties in the future too. As low profile as possible would be good. Anyone fitted rails to a HiLo? Which did you go with?

    HiLo Etched milano suede bed. Anybody fancy one?

    We currently have a van in our workshop with a HiLo roof fitted to it. We don't fit these so dont get much of a chance to get up close and personal to them but having spent time around the roof and van over the past few weeks we couldn't help noticing that the carpeted bed board and cab closure...

    Has anyone on here got a photo of their van with a Hilo roof and a wind out awning. My builder doesn't fit them, so would like to see a pic of one fitted, how it's attached to the van, then I will source a company local to me. Thanks in advance.

    Visiontech Colchester

    After much deliberation I chose VisionTech in Colchester to fit my Hilo pop roof along with a few other things. Leisure Battery, captain chairs, Webasto heating system, awning etc... I have to say that they were pretty faultless. Fitted on schedule and as per their build sheet. I am fussy by...

    Hi Drama Lo Quality Roof - Sinking In The Surf

    I thought it might be helpful to others planning their winter projects for me to share our recent experiences with HILO Roofs and their Surf Roof product. For the record, this doesn’t directly relate to the product recall, although we did have to drive around with that bra strap on the roof for...
