We have been making roofs for VW T5/6 and For Transit Custom vans for 5 years now and all the learning is behind us. Our product is honest and realable and with our 35 years experiance in business in one form or another we know how to treat our customers.
But it’s not all about making money, we have a GLOBEL PROBLEM and thats our biggest concern. So we as a company have just started to make our roof caps with a strengthing foam made from RECYCLED PLASTIC BOTTLES! a little step for the planet but a big step for us.
RAP Pop Tops is a small to medium company now in its 5th year producing front elevating roofs for VW camper vans. The roofs are characterised by their excellent build quality and available in SWB T5/6 and LWB T5/6 versions. We offer roof fitting to your choice of colour and spec just ask. We don’t spend loads on advertising that’s why we are not in your face day by day. But we are here doing a professional job at our pace with a friendly attitude. It’s also worth pointing out that we have been dealing with customers in one form or another for over 35 years.
The Roof Cap
The roof cap is made of fibreglass in a layered format made with heat resistant resin, with a double gel coat finish. All caps come in black or white and can be coloured coded to your van’s specific shade. All metal fixings are bonded in the skin of the cap – no exposed metal work is visible. We have added a plastic honeycomb strengthening panel in the underside of the cap measuring over 2m long and 600mm wide, this will prevent heat distortion in extreme temperatures. The caps are prescribed to the roof shape for easy fitting purposes.
For the tent; we have a range of 12 different shades, grey and black are standard. The tent is made of a strong durable material called ODYSSEY with a large window in the front and a zip-over cover, as are the side vents. The rear of the tent has a elastic seam to aid the tent fold when closing. UV rated – the sun won’t fade the colour and the window won’t turn yellow with age. The tent is changeable as new ideas ‘pop up’, at the moment we are on mark 3 this has extra elastic to help pull the tent in.
