  1. Reimo Pop Top - Strut Pops off

    T4 Conversions
    My T4 Reimo roof has been brilliant - until the hydraulic strut has started popping off the ball on one side. I've had it re-sited by my local garage 3 times now at £60 a pop, and think there must be something that needs replacing. Any one had any similar problems or know where I can go to get...
  2. Reimo roof bed lwb or swb ???

    T5 Conversions
    Hi guys, I have a lwb t5 with a reimo pop up roof. My question is should I buy a lwb or swb roof bed as I read somewhere that that the swb version goes up higher to give more head room. Many thanks Richard.
  3. Roof types?

    T5 Conversions
    Me again (sorry!) Has anyone experience with o'connors campers side roofs? Space looks fab but are side openers noisier? Heard ok reviews about austops.. Or would people recommend blowing most the budget on a reimo and taking longer to convert? Thanks :)
  4. Reimo 'teddy' roof bed fabric

    T4 Conversions
    Hi, just fitted a replacement bed board for my Reimo pop top out of exterior ply. All good, but would be better if it matched the existing Reimo boards - which have the grey fluffy fabric I think is called 'teddy' (cos it's cosy innit). Anyone know where I can track some down? Exhausted the...

  6. Reimo swivel table mounting bracket

    Life Style
    Reimo swivel table mounting bracket I think (?) the pics explain it better than I can, but this is the big job that mounts most commonly onto the base of an R'n'R bed. It swivels in and out, and the table leg fits inside it. It is used, and has some scratches on it. New they cost a bundle...

    Hi we have got an 2002 ex aa van which has just been fitted with an austops pop top roof. We are thinking about getting an awning,so has anyone else out got this set up who could advise on which rail to get. From what i can see it would probably have to be the reimo unit.

  9. Space under REIMO Rock n Roll bed for batteries?

    Alright? I want to install a bank of two batteries under my REIMO when I have it fitted, and want to know the size of the physical space available. What's the standard physical size of batteries to fit? Also, what kind of battery tray do I need?

    What's it worth?
    So, after spending months searching for the right T4 panel van and then £000’s converting it, it looks like I might be relocating to Aus! :eek: I’ve looked into shipping it over but too be honest I can’t really justify the costs. So looks like I might be putting it up for sale. The question is...

  12. AWNING RAILS help needed!

    General Technical
    Hi In 2005 I had a Reimo elevating roof with bed fitted to my 2000 T4 LWB, this was the first part in my conversion plans. I recently went away in the van and for the first time in a while had to use the elevating area for sleeping in. I have found that 3/4 of the roof lining has come away...
  15. Which awning and how to connect to a T4....

    T4 Conversions
    I have searched the forums and still don't know which way to go!! Just purchased a 96 Caravelle with Reimo roof. I am used to aircooled T2's with a gutter so was confused to find no gutter on the T4. I now know the options are an aftermarket rail, screwed/stuck to the roof or using guy ropes...
