PostSubject: Quality alternative to Danbury pop up roof top?   Wed Aug 06, 2014 10:05 am

Right, decided. I've had enough with the useless Danbury pop up rooftop.

Why should I put a child or two up there when I don't even have one? Besides, if did have one or even two (hopefully one day!) why on earth should they have a full width bed while me and my wife would be squashed into the a 3/4 width of the rio interior bed (with kitchen on side, fridge etc..)? It makes no sense to me  Rolling Eyes 
Not even our dog likes to sleep up there No 

I've recently come across with this: http://www.spaceroofs.co.uk/type-2-brazilian-poptop-roof.htm#tab3

Does anyone know them? Do you fit one of their tops? Any feedback on these or suggestions for similar solutions to achieve a full width roof bed for 2 adults with elevating roof front or back or even Dormobile style would be much appreciated!

Thanks!

We use that roof space for storage - rally handy for putting everything out of the way when we're sleeping. 

We've got the full width bed though so I can see that you might be constricted - personally, I wouldn't want to sleep up there at all.

Hi Absinthe, yes that's what we normally do as well.

But how about not having to move all the stuff and luggage every time we fancy a nap, and in the comfort of a full width bed? Smile

I see what you're saying - I just don't think I'd like sleeping up there - mind I am 6'5" and 16st!

Got it!

But apparently they make a proper solid bed where can sleep 2 adults without dropping down in the middle of the night Wink

I might have even found my all time loved Dormobile option!

I spoke to concept about the Danbury roof and very differcult to fit due to the size of the hole and also the brazzy has a much taller roof.

Cannot remember the guys name at conceptpoptops, it was about end of June this year. There has been someone with a brazzy that has had the Danbury roof removed and a westfalia type fitted.

I thought concept were only making canvases and upholstery didn't realise they actually fit roofs?

My favourite so far is the Dormobile though… it's always been Smile

If you have a search on the forum there have been a few other owners who have replaced the roof.

Looks like its the spaceroof.

If I could afford it I would get the Spaceroof poptop in a heart beat, they look so much nicer. Plus I would think they're less of a faff to put down
