Our much anticipated new poptop is finally here & is available from just £2425 + vat fully fitted & including a 2 berth elevating bed!

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 & highest 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, industry leading, super-low profile Sport model…


Surf Features as standard…

  • Light weight but super-strong, one-piece composite subframe, bonded to your van utilising the existing factory fixing points
  • Discreet, low profile when closed – shape enhancing roof shell sits just 35mm above standard van, without compromising strength and glides under 2m car park barriers with ease – even on standard suspension!
  • No thick rubber ring required to seat roof thanks to our patented ‘in the gutter’ design – one-piece, concealed perimeter seal instead
  • VW faithful, ribbed roof shell – vacuum moulded, reinforced, convex crowned & designed specifically not to bend, sag or hold water
  • Fully fitted in 2 days with minimal sealing required
  • No loss in standing height or seated headroom over a standard VW panel van, so works perfectly in conjunction with all factory middle seats and aftermarket rock & roll bed systems
  • 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 – which sit flush behind sunvisors when not in use
  • Heavy duty, 2-berth bi-fold ‘1 touch to raise or lower’ hydraulic bed on 4 x gas rams included – not an additional extra/ upgrade
  • Full 1400mm front ‘lift’ – means you can comfortably sit up straight to enjoy the HiLo sun deck
  • High quality, lightweight, highly water resistant canvas – with technically advanced UV, mildew, stain & wear resistant properties, and ‘easy pull in’ mechanism. Available in a wide range of colours
  • 3 x dual-zip windows, each with a ‘black out’ interior blind, its own velcro fixing tabs & a fully opening plastic pane
  • Full width midge mesh ventilation above the front window, with fold-down velcro flap cover – allows airflow without having to leave windows open
  • Biggest tent cubic capacity (sleeping/ play space) of any mid-range roof
  • Huge bed surface area of 2030mm (length) x 1170mm (width) in LWB & 1660mm (length) in SWB – plus an extra 750mm with the sturdy sliding hatch engaged
  • Honeycomb foam lined roof shell – for effective insulation/ sound deadening & added strength
  • Heavy duty 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 length (LWB) and 2170mm (SWB) x 920mm wide between soffits
  • Concealed, laser cut, stainless, traditional style hinges at the rear – means zero bounce/ sway with roof open or closed, no delay in operation and no way for the canvas to get caught in hinges
  • 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
  • A 6′ tall person can stand up straight just 1160mm forward of bottom of the rear doors with bed elevated, even in the SWB, thanks to the overall length of the subframe aperture & workings of the clever cantilever bed
  • Accepts all mainstream units/ furniture – no requirement to modify driver side rear locker
  • Roof shell multi-reinforced both down its length and across its width will accept all conventional roof rail systems – and take the weight of your roof racks/ boxes/kayaks/surfboards etc
  • Accepts most conventional c-rail awnings & most solar panels
  • No bolts/ washers or fixings on show, with stainless steel & aluminium used throughout (materials chosen for their light weight, strength & anti-rust properties)
  • Sliding hatch included in price – and designed/ strengthened to further maximise bed space
  • Full 3-year manufacturers warranty for your peace of mind
  • 100% designed, developed & manufactured here in the UK
  • Fits all tailgate & barn door equipped T5-6’s, SWB & LWB, 2003 to date
  • Can replace all other ‘up on top’ elevating roof systems
