Thanks for your comments. I know that the poptop is far more popular than the hightop, as I said I bought and then sold a really nice poptop, but then decided that for us a hightop was more practical even tough a poptop is asthetically more pleasing. I had hoped to source a medium high top, but was unable to find one. Having bought and now fitted the top I am 100% sure that it was the correct decision for ourselves (it's an age thing!). The top lockers are now painted and fully assembled. Tracks for the TL doors are now all made and fitted and the tambour slats and handles are now in the kitchen side lockers, the other side TL slats and handles should be fitted tomorrow. The top lockers are fairly shallow as I have made provision for a high level bed (36" wide) to slide underneath them. I now think that my quick cheap conversion is beginning to turn into the transporter that thinks it is a motorhome!!!. Geoff.Fantastic progress on this! Really interesting to see something different to the usual pop-top set up and credit to you for DIY-ing a high-top. Definitely not something I've seen done before.
Might not be to everyone's taste but the internal space and storage looks fantastic!
Yes - and the gas is (or was) less than half the price of bottled gas. I have had an underslung gas tank on most of my campers, not just because of the price, but also because SWMBO always complains about lack of storage space. I am therefore also fitting an underfloor (replacing spare wheel) 70 ltr.water tank. On my previous vehicles (Fiat Ducato's) I have also fitted an underslung waste tank, but for this van I am just going to drop the waste down into an external loose canCan you fill the underslung gas tank from any lpg fuel pump? It's coming along nicely btw.
