    Hi there I'm looking at making a elevating roof bed in a VW T5 Campervan. I can't seem to find on the web what wood to use. I'm imagining a ply, maybe birch or hardwood? (I've looked at 15mm softwood ply and it seems very flimsy.) Can anyone recommend the type of wood and thickness? Many thanks!

    Was unable to fully close our pop top the other day as the catches had become misaligned. Has anyone had this problem? Is there an easy solution? It's an sca roof and wasn't cheap!

    Hi, we bought our T4 swb August bank holiday. It has been lined out but not in a style we like so it is all getting wripped out. We had our first trip out at busfest, after 2 uncomfortable nights on a airbed it was time for a change. We purchased some goodies at the show, including 2 swivvel...

    Thinking caps on, Can anyone suggest where I could get the canvas roof of my 94 T4 Westy replaced? Ideally I would like to find someone to make and install, however if necessary I could get one imported from Germany, but would still need someone to fit it. And before anyone suggests it, No I...

    Hi I am thinking about permanently bolting a roof box to the rear of an elevating roof. My reasons are that it will increase the overall height by less, it may reduce drag and noise and it will look neater. Is this a really bad idea?

    Does anyone have a roof rack or roof box fitted to the hinged end of an elevating roof? If so, would you let me know how you did it? Ideas about ladders on the tailgate would also be useful. I know fiamma does one but I would rather one in powder coated steel.
