    Noisy Reimo roof?

    Bought our brand new converted camper back in the Spring (having never owned one before and therefore having nothing to compare). I am trying to gauge whether the slight noises that my roof makes are 'normal' or need investigation. Silence when going in a straight line but when cornering...

    Reimo roof out of alignment/Twisted

    My reimo roof has gone out of alignment, as you can see below. You can see that it doesn't sit straight at the front and the hinge has moved on the offside of the van, which makes sense as the roof is skewed at the front to the nearside. The hinge is fixed in the right place on the nearside and...

    Replacement Parts for Reimo Roof

    Hi all .... I have a Reimo pop up roof and to the rear of it on the inside are two strips of plastic/perspex (?) which when you close the roof assists the canvas coming inwards to avoid getting trapped. One of these has snapped. Does anyone know where I can get spares? Thanks Mike

    SCA / Reimo fitted abroad

    I wondered if anyone has taken their van across the continent to perhaps France, Belgium, or Germany to have a roof fitted. The fitting cost in the UK is quite significant once you factor in shipping costs. It seems a no brainier and nice idea for a road trip to take it over. Pre COVID I priced...

    Reimo Roof Questions

    Anyone with the various versions of Reimo's roof give some insight into a few features? The locking system.. Is there a catch or is it just straps?

    Reimo Roof Straps Fraying Webbing

    hi, we've got a newly converted t6 with a reimo roof but after only a few outing the roof secure straps are fraying at the edges and it's a challenge to thread through the grip catch. Bodans recommended burning the material and squeezing with hands and is a problem with all roof webbing. Any...
