The HiLo Roof System was born out of dissatisfaction with the handful of roofs on the market, in terms of the 4 or 5 main considerations when buying one – e.g:


The basic look & construction had already been around for decades, pretty much unchanged.


We knew that even those customers of average height couldn’t stand up straight towards the rear of their camper and were limited to only being able to sleep one way round: feet to the rear.


Customers using their Transporter for multi-purposes (daily driver/ work, as well as weekends away) felt the traditional “bath tub” style roofs compromised the clean, uncluttered lines of their van and were concerned about their increase in height/ frontal area resulting in a reduction in fuel economy.


Worried not only about the tie-down straps that we’d had first-hand experience of fraying/ slipping (on occasion resulting in lift at speed), but also having seen the standard of some of the budget “copy” roofs in various installations, we knew there had to be a better way…


Highest Lifting

1350mm extra height at front & 520mm at rear, for full length standing height & maximum space up top, whichever way round you choose to sleep!


Lowest Profile

Pod-less, OE–look roof sits just 15mm above original height with no bolts or seals on view. Maintains ample headroom for seated rear occupants + optimum mpg. Our patented design means you won’t find anything lower!


Safety First

The first elevating roof in-vehicle crash tested to M1 insurance standard, EC Directive 76/115/EEC compliant


Fits any T5 / T6

Suitable for all LWB or SWB, with or without rear spoiler


100% British

Convex construction & drain tubes

Being ribbed for added strength & with drain tubes in all 4 corners, the HiLo won’t bend or collect water up top

Short lead time

HiLo represents the highest quality & very best value roof kit on the market. Available much faster than if placing an order with a non-UK company


Accommodates all conventional roof rail systems

Integral reinforcement along its length means the HiLo will easily sustain the weight of your surfboards / roof box / ladders etc

Did you know that in order to achieve a true low profile when closed and an ultra-high bedroom and walking height when elevated, the high quality components of a HiLo elevating roof cost anything up to 6 times as much as those within the ‘traditional’ style of elevating roof?
