The most eagerly awaited news in the budget poptop market for years!

 

We know you want looks, performance, features, ease of use, combined with the very best value for money – and we’re here to give it to you!

 

Nearly 3 years in the intensive research, planning and development, we’ve applied the same innovative, clean sheet design approach & quality materials/ manufacturing processes you would  expect from HiLo, but are able to offer this all new product at 60% of the fitted price of our current, super-low profile Scenic model…

 

Surf Features as standard…

    • Light weight but super-strong, one-piece composite subframe – fits over original VW ribs in van roof & bolts down using factory roof rail fixing points

 

    • Discreet, low profile when closed – sits just 35mm off standard van roof, without compromising strength of the roof shell

 

    • No thick rubber ring required to seat/ seal roof thanks to our patented ‘in the gutter’ design

 

    • VW faithful, ribbed roof shell – vacuum moulded, reinforced & convex crowned so as not to hold water

 

    • Fully fitted in 1-day not 3-5 – minimal sealing & no laminating or trimming required. Kit supplied ready to install, with roof shell already affixed and complete unit trial tested in a factory van

 

    • No loss in standing height or seated headroom over a standard VW panel van

 

    • Simple, minimal effort ‘push up to self elevate & pull down to close’ operation with fast stowage time

 

    • No chunky front ‘pod’ bonded above windscreen – custom extruded slimline spoiler instead

 

    • Twin front lock-down system instead of nylon straps – offers infinite tension control & ensures smooth, quiet motoring

 

    • Factory look, custom moulded front headliner featuring neat recesses to hide controls – these flush behind sunvisors when not in use

 

    • Heavy duty, 2-berth bi-fold bed included – not a £350+ optional extra/ upgrade

 

    • Full 1400mm front ‘lift’ – means you can comfortably sit up straight to enjoy the HiLo sun deck

 

    • No penalty for having a 400mm longer van – LWB same price as SWB, not a £300-350+ extra

 

    • High quality, lightweight, breathable canvas – with advanced UV/ mildew/ stain resistant properties & ‘easy pull in’ mechanism. Available in a wide range of colours

 

    • Triple windows with black out blinds – with zip-back fly mesh and blackout panes, plus fully open option

 

    • Biggest tent cubic capacity (sleeping/ play space) of any mid-range roof

 

    • A 40mm mattress can live permanently upstairs

 

    • Huge bed surface area of 2030mm (length) x 1170mm (width) in LWB – plus an extra 750mm with the sturdy sliding hatch engaged, giving an unprecedented 2780mm total length!

 

    • Honeycomb foam lined roof shell – for effective insulation/ sound deadening & added strength

 

    • Gas struts positioned to give a clear, unobstructed view out of both side windows

 

    • Longest/ widest walk through of any budget or mid-range roof – measuring 2500mm long x 920mm wide between soffits

 

    • Traditional rather than slim scissor type hinges at the rear – means zero bounce/ sway with roof closed/ open, no delay in operation, and no way for the canvas to get caught in hinges

 

    • Accepts all mainstream units/ furniture – no requirement to modify driver side rear locker

 

    • Will accept all conventional roof rail systems – and take the weight of your racks/ boxes & contents, kayaks/ surfboard etc

 

    • No bolts/ washers or fixings on show
    • Sliding hatch included in price – and designed/ strengthened to further maximise bed space

 

    • 3-year manufacturers warranty

 

    • 100% designed, developed & manufactured here in the UK

 

    • Fits all tailgate & barn door equipped T5-6’s

 

  • Can replace all other ‘up on top’ elevating roof systems

 

Optional Extras include…

    • Original HiLo Scenic canvas – patented & with design right to zip right up the sides for true panoramic view out

 

    • Your choice of contrasting colour canvas

 

    • Coloured gel coat roof shell – matched to any RAL or British Standard colour code

 

  • Custom fit, super-soft mattress – with removable, washable cover
