Elevating Roofs

We are currently able to fit elevating roofs (pop tops) to the VW T5 (Volkswagen Transporters), SWB Vivaros, Fiat Scudos and Peugeot Experts as well as some other vans. Fitting an elevating roof to your van gives a number of advantages, firstly it allows you to stand up in your van which is great when cooking, getting changed etc. Also, it allows fitment of a roof bed, effectively turning the standard 2 berth side conversion into a 4 berth camper. For a guide to choosing different layouts please click on the Layout Guide link to the left of this page.An elevating roof will also make your campervan more desirable and therefore increase its resale value.

The low line nature of the roofs we fit also keeps the low profile and good looks of a low roof van and therefore should still allow access to a lot of car parks and even some home garages.

All our roof conversions include a zip down canvas panel which gives good ventilation, they are also insulated and carpeted on the inside and are colour matched to your van (we need paint code at the time of ordering).

We can also include roof bed and roof mattress.

Please contact us for roof fitting prices.

Please note we only fit roofs as part of a full conversion

Convert Your Van Ltd - Race Van / Sports Home Layout Guide

Below is a brief guide to choosing/designing your race van/sports home layout, there are example layouts as well as hints and tips on how to decide what you want. For example layouts for different size vans check the other layout guide pages on our site.

When deciding on a layout it is good practice to look at what has been done before, go to motorhome shows or large dealers where you can have a browse around. Bear in mind that what might look great in a photo (or layout diagram), might not be ideal for everyone in practice, so to go and have a look inside and a walk round existing motorhomes can give you a better idea of what you can expect to fit in a given sized van.

The next thing to consider is that when it comes to a camper van interior, everything is always a compromise, the ideal would be a coach sized motorhome to fit everything in that you want, but that would fit in a car parking space at the local supermarket, and that obviously isn't possible! So it comes down to compromise. Decide what you need in your camper, what you'd like in your camper, and what you could do without. For example, how many secondhand motorhomes/campervans/caravans do you see where the shower has never been used? Do you need one? Some people will, some people won't.

If you already have your van, once you have a layout in mind it is a good idea to try it in the van, this can be done by drawing it on the floor or marking it with tape, you can then get an idea of what space will be left, what gaps you'll have to walk through, etc. And don't forget the wheel arches! Arches can often get in the way of fridges, toilets, etc, so try to bare them in mind when planning your layout.

Below you will find some example layouts with approximate prices for furniture and cushions (prices are a guide and can vary either way depending on van model and finer details - please see prices page for more details). The diagrams are intended as a guide, you could possibly combine your favourite parts of more than one layout to come up with something that is right for you. If there is nothing that seems ideal, you can always email us with your own unique layout and we can give you a quote based on that, all we need is a detailed description or better still a diagram and we can give you an accurate quote.

Please note: Prices shown are intended as a guide and are for furniture and cushions only, they don't include any appliances, lining, windows, etc
(See Prices page for further details of all prices)

The layouts below show various options/examples for Race Van / Sports Home Conversions. They all provide a large garage area at the rear for Motorbikes or other large items such as Go-Karts, Quads, Mountain Bikes, Outdoor Equipment, etc. Each image shows the van it was based on, although they can be adapted to suit other vans. Also remember these are examples, if you have your own ideas or would like a combination of more than one layout we can build to individual specifications.
