Westfalia type pop top wanted
Hi everyone

Im slowly starting to lean towards fitting this pop top to my bus.

Obviously these wont be newly available so im not worried about the "tent" itself but more concerned to get the rest in a reasonable condition..

I would even consider buying a complete bus if it has a neat pop top

You have the Bus, use it, enjoy nature!

There are two suppliers of new replicas in the UK.
I'll have to research the names again.
Mine is an original
   
Sedgefield classics was selling a Westy import for R 150 000 2wd

RE: Westfalia type pop top wanted
I am the proud owner of Stuart's first Westy replica pop top and the build quality is very good. Overall I am very happy with the product, but will be making some minor modifications mostly for personal preference, but also to stiffen the bed. I can take some pictures if there is anything specific you want to see.

My roof is slightly different to the normal Westy roof pictured above because it has a bulge at the back to accommodate the mattress and the bedding. I personally prefer the all-flat roof, but will probably appreciate the additional packing space.
