    Looks like an Aussie one (Supro) with different struts.

  4. That's pretty much identical to mine which is an Australian Campmobile top (may not have the e on the end...)
     
  5. It's a BRAND NEW roof, based on a Canterbury Pitt (whatever that is)
    If I get rich I'm gonna have me one of them. :)

  8. That's a new roof by the guys over at Space Roofs. We're having a westy replica roof from them fitted by the guys at Kombi Klassics of Wareham. Should be back with us in the next 2 weeks or so. I'll stick some pics up. Our bus is turning into a bit of a franken-van: panel van conversion with an import westy tin top and new pop top!
     
  9. Same as @moortarn ... Sheldon high-top!

    Peter Pitt of Canterbury Pitt is the reason you don't have speed restrictions and vat on your camper Mate, and made some revolutionary camper conversions and poptops.

    Although when fitted by Dormobile, it is further forward as the cooker is under the passenger seat.

  15. What is your sunshade/micro awning thing?
    Where from?
    How much?
    Is it any good?
    Does it blow down in the wind?
    Etc.etc.
     
  16. Vango tent porch canopy. Designed to fit around the entrance to a tent and provide shelter. I originally saw this used by a T3 owner at the last Vanfest I went to, which was 2010.
    Bought from eBay for about £18 immediately after getting home from Vanfest 2010. (Sadly no longer available)
    Has one sectioned fibreglass pole so goes up in about 5 minutes. Ties over the top of the van with its tie-ropes. Has never blown away in the wind, it's just too simple a design. Secures down nicely with the ropes you see in the picture.

    Essentially its me putting 2 fingers up at the idea that you have to pay £60 for a piece of canvas and some poles. This provides some shelter and a bit of privacy where you don't want to put the big awning up.

  17. Spaceroof Late Westy Replica roof. Based on the original westy roof but with the added bonus of gas struts.

  18. Could I fit gas struts to my Danbury poptop? The mofo weighs a ton.
