    Can anyone help? I bought some roofbars off ebay - they fit under the lip on the edge of the roof. I can't get them to tighten up on the lip - has anyone had the same issues, or does anyone have a copy of the original fitting instructions? I bet they're like hens teeth. I'm off surfing of...

    I have a pop-top on my VW T5.1 LWB and the rubber strip (wind deflector) has started to come adrift. It's fitted with some sort of double-sided tape it seems. Anyone any thoughts on what product I can use to stick it back on. I know I could use sealant but I would prefer a tidy job with a...

    Hi all, I am having my reimo roof replaced due to a problem with the roof lining/canvas attachment. The roof is, however, in perfect structural state (and only 4 years old) and could well be reused by someone who has the skills and tools to re-attach the canvas. It seems a shame for it not to...

    Hi all I popped my Reimo roof the other day after a fair while of it not being used and found a section of the canvas has unattached itself from the roof. The staples have simply come out. Any advice on repair options for this? Not sure how long a warranty period would be but it's only 4...

    Hi, We're going to put a Skyline pop top on our 2013 T5.1 LWB, but unsure of whether to have a black or white roof? I know the black will get hotter but with the scenic canvas I dont really see that being too much of an issue. Also, unsure of what canvas colour to go with, as the only real...

    Hi, Thanks in advance to all you lovely people who may be able to offer me some advice... T: I have a 2011 T5.1 with a 'ridged' rather than flat smooth roof. Does anyone have experience of installing flexi stick down solar panels to a T5 with a 'ridged roof'? e.g. How can you form a proper...

    I bought a converted T5 last year and love it. Except... It has got a very flimsy fibreglass roof that the windy gets caught under the front and makes it flap. It gets really bad when it's windy and I'm petrified it's going to get wripped off or damaged! I have the cords pulled down extremely...

    Has anyone had a Stealth Roof fitted by Low Life? I'm planning to visit them next weekend to have a look at a fitted roof as long as they have a demo / customer van available, but I can't find any reviews anywhere. https://www.low-life.co.uk/product-page/copy-of-low-life-stealth-roof-t6-lwb...
  10. Interior
    In the leeds area. Got a T5 SWB. I am looking to get an interior roof fitted with lighting. We currently have a lined roof made up of a single sheet of wood. Is there anyone who fits new interior roofs? Looking to get LED strips round the outside and spotlights in the middle. Can anyone point me...
  11. Bodywork & Exterior / Detailing & Valeting
    Hi All I'm struggling to choose between the two. The prices are similar, the good fitters will fit either, both have fantastic reputations and solid track records for reliability and longevity ... so what are the other considerations? I have heard that head height might be an issue because some...

    Can anyone recommend a good place for having a poptop fitted, ideally in the region of £2000-2500?

    Hi, I'm currently looking at base vehicles to start my 4 berth conversion. I've outlined the ideal as a T5, 30/32 140bhp Kombi. I've looked at caravelle sliding seat options and OxfordT5 have been really helpful and given lots of advice and the installation certificate for insurance purposes is...

    Hello all This is my first post so hoping for some help.... I have a 1996 T4 and the black seal around the pop top is hanging off. Having already tried to glue it with no success I wondered if anyone has suggestions i.e. if there is a particular glue that would work or any tips. Thanks:confused:

    Hi, long time readers, first time question asker! Almost everything has already been covered, but I can't find a thread on this surprisingly. I've seen there are a variety of roofs out there which are based upon the Reimo design. And, notably they are all cheaper! I've read up on a few of them...

    What roof rack / bars could I fit to a T4 without boring holes? The old one on it was very heavy duty and I want something lighter without putting holes in the van roof.

    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! Advice welcome. Thanks!

    Hi. I'm hoping somebody may be able to help me. I was wondering if anybody knows if there are any European or British standards relating to pop top roofs? My insurance company here in France have said that they can cover my pop top roof as long as it 'complies to European norms'. As it is...
