Hi all! Hoping someone with a hi-lo roof can help… only our 2nd camping outing in the van have popped the roof and where it bolts down at the front- there are no caps to screw bolts back in to stop rain coming in have put duct tape for now but what is supposed to be here? Previous owners has...
Has anyone fitted oem roof rails to a HiLo roof please?
I’m about to and need to know if the metal rails are sold or just fibreglasses over?
Did you have to bolt up from the bottom and tighten the nuts down into the roof bars due to clearance on the pop top when it closes??
Thanks nervously Chrjs
Does anyone with a Hilo roof use an external pop top cover, such as the ones supplied by Rainbow Screens? If so, what is the technique for getting the cover on & off this pop-top, given its enormous height?
Heads up for anyone replacing gas struts on a Hilo roof (or others I'd guess).
Long read sorry but may prove useful to someone.
Step 1. Don't be a dick (like me) and wait till they fail.
Step 2. Don't ignore Step 1.
Step 3. If you were a dick and ignored steps 1 and 2 get help.
So as I am part way through my conversion, I am now looking towards a pop top. Hilo is the preferred choice but it would be interesting to see what percentage have had issues against people who have not
Hopefully, this is the last post I need to make about our HiLo Surf roof. It is no more, it is an ex-roof!
A huge round of applause to Vanmax Poptops…They took on the challenge and were more than equal to it. We have now got a spanking new roof that doesn’t leak, has no condensation build up...
I have been wanting to put rails on my Hilo roof for ages. I got pretty much given a set of Thule roof bars and adaptors (Thule parts 7107 and 7009 + wing bars) coming from a California.
All I need I think is rails that would be compatible with that fitting Kit.
I think the one camper van...
Just saw this posted on another forum that HiLo have gone into administration.
Thought this may be useful for anyone that has a roof conversion booked with them or had one fitted

The nearside hinge of our HiLo surf roof has just popped off! Has anyone else had a problem like this? They are held on by 2 rivets and I'm not sure how to go about fixing this... Any thoughts (on the repair)? I think it will need to be a 'blind' repair in that I can't...
Hello, I'm about to book van in for full conversion with Scenic campers in Preston. Had a search but can't find many reviews from them here so thought I would ask the question. I popped in a while back and had a look at their T6 conversion and thought it looked really good. Just wondering if...
My Hilo is in need of a few repairs as it was poorly fitted. I have tried to get quotes for some one to sort and look like none of the good fitters are touching Hilo now. Anyone able to repair or even quote. I'm near Edinburgh but willing to travel.
1. Paint rubbing off van at...
Hi there all,
does anyone have any contact details for Hilo? The two numbers I had, that worked last year are no longer working. There's nothing on their website. And their contact forms don't really feel like they actually submit anything.
Any help appreciated.
We have just had an new HiLo roof installed. We choose not to have the orignal roof linning replaced, as we saw no point in the additional expense (£900). When we collected the vehicle, it was pointed out that (see pic) 'this was the best finish available' as we had opted to not have roof trim...
I've got a Hilo roof fitted and I'm looking to fit a roof rack to carry 3 kayaks, the roof is good for 60kg so the weight is fine, has anyone fitted or had any expiernce of these rack systems?

I'm undecided weather I should go for something like this or just...
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.
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...
