    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 fitter in Yorkshire area?

    Hi all - apologies if this is covered elsewhere... I’ve read the various positive and negative experiences with HiLo roof fitting and after sales support - something I need to weigh up carefully.

    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.

    Wind Out Awning With Hilo Poptop

    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...

    Well I'm taking the plunge and going to have some mods carried out after deciding to keep my 16 plate rather than 'upgrade'. VanKing sent me their kombi bed frame last week (amazing product and service by Murray by the way!) Visiontech will be installing a Hilo Sport colour coded Pop roof...

    Van Doc Ltd - - - - Vandoc Conversions Ltd

    Having looked through this area, I am quite surprised not to see Van Doc’s name. So here goes with first review for them. I first got in touch with them in January to make an appointment to go and visit with a view to getting a Hilo roof fitted. This was all simple, and within a week Mrs...

    Hilo Surf Recall

    It looks like HiLo are recalling their cheaper Surf roof for safety reasons. Temporarily adding some straps and also adding some metal discs to strengthen the roof where it may not have been manufactured incorrectly......still safe to 70mph though but with a warning of 'involuntary elevation of...
