Mr I's Conversion... The Roof
Mr I came to us looking for the full bells and whistles to go into his T6 Edition. This was to include carpet line-out, insulation, new floor, wardrobe units, electrics, heater, fridge, swivel seat, pop top roof, and much more… As mentioned.. Full Bells and whistles!
In this piece we will show and explain the roof fitting process.
A roof can add so much to your van, not only for the camping experience, but to value, should you decide to move the van on. With the room ‘upstairs’ for extra bodies to sleep, be it the kids or friends, the world of family camping trips, or weekends away with friends opens up. Along with sleeping arrangements, just hanging out in the van is a more pleasurable experience, when you don’t spend your entire time stooped over!
The process is started with the roof being cut out of your van, our technicians have fitted 100’s of roofs, so are very experienced at this, so fear not, your van is in safe hands! After cutting, a primer is painted on to ensure all bonding agents can do their job.
The roof is then bonded and bolted to the van, along with a front spoiler, which really finishes off the job and ensures a nice, aerodynamic look to the vehicle.
Mr I went for a Reimo roof. Because he has an ‘Edition’ T6, this van is grey with some smart looking black details. Mr I requested that the roof be painted black to match the colour layout of the van. This is something that we offer with all our roofs, colour coding to your exact needs, wether it’s a contrasting colour to stand out, or a colour that makes the roof look subtle, we can sort it.
This Reimo pop roof has zip windows integrated, with fly screens also. The roof is front elevating (providing more room above the important areas - cooking, entry, exit etc.), but also elevates at the rear.
Here at SJ Campers, we work with Reimo, SCA and Skyline roofs, this ensures that customers have the choice of a range of price points, and features. Please browse the roofs section of our website to review what we have on offer.
