    Roof design gone backwards?

    Having washed it last weekend, I got a good look at the roof. Ribs run front to back as you all know, and it’s fairly flat up there. Van was damp this morning, and I had a short drive in stop start traffic. The water just kept on coming onto the screen. My old T4 was slightly domed meaning it...

    Pop-Top Cleaning Solution

    Our campervan has been parked under trees for the last few months during lockdown and even the jet wash is struggling to get black marks off the pop top roof and we've just noticed there is a mossy type mould within the gap at the front of the roof! :eek: Does anyone know of any solutions...

    Roof noise when window is open.

    Hi, I’ve now been driving my T6 for a week or so and have discovered a panting noise from the roof when the drivers side window is open, it’s bloody annoying. I have a Caravelle and so don’t expect the roof to be panting away like a panel van. My T5.1 Caravelle didn't do it and I don’t know...

    For Sale Pop Top Roof Bungee / Bellows Safety Device Swb & Lwb

    These aid in the lowering of your pop top canvas safely. After problems with the design of my pop top causing it to leak I decided to make my own bungee to aid the canvas when lowering the pop top roof. It overcomes the bellowing of the canvas if you have the doors shut and also pulls the sides...

    Sagging Roof Panel

    The previous owner of my van had a bulkhead in it which has now been removed. The middle roof panel which is directly behind where the bulkhead was is starting to sag at the front. Should this now be replaced with a longer panel or is there a wider strip panel to hold them up.

    Sca Roof Fault?

    Hey guys I have noticed the stainless steel brackets on top of the rear hinges on the SCA 194 pano roof are causing damage to the canvas as it closes. Before you all shout the obvious it has nothing to do with the canvas bellowing out. It’s where the canvas attaches to the roof with the Alu...

    Roof-Top Tents

    Hi folks, Is anybody in to roof top tenting? I'm thinking about it for my Caravelle as a substitute for an awning. If I bought an awning I'd be spending a bit less but the quality of roof top tents seems to be far better than an awning, plus it frees up interior space when travelling. If...
