I like your high top. I,originally, kept with the low top because that is the only kind that would fit in my heated garage. But now that we have moved to the big city and I have found a heated storage garage for my camper van and Corvette, I finally have the overhead space to store it. I may have to look into converting mine to a high top too. It would be really nice to be able to stand up in it. Not sure how my roof rack, water storage tube, and NAPA awning would fit on a high top though. Keep posting pictures because I love to see what others have done, especially to GM vans.

Had to add a high top because of my bad back and it make a difference even for the short standing area.
The high top is a molded fiberglass ( like a fiberglass boat ) I have a Casita trailer and it's molded fiberglass and it has a awing on it with no problems at all. I don't know how it will handle your roof rack and water storage tube, you would have to check with the manufacture for that.
I will post pictures when I finish the build and that might be sometime in the summer as I have other things to get done first, but will still beable to go camping .

Good to see you posting . Jay

Got out to the hot springs w the wife in our recently acquired van. It was very pleasant near 70F, few campers, and no issues. Pretty good for a late March trip in Central Idaho.


cptqueeg, what van did you get? how about some pictures.
70f in Idaho is great time to be camping, been to Idaho several time and always love it.


It's a winnie revel, based on a swb sprinter. The previous owner made some real nice upgrades, including doubling the lithium battery banks.

The funny thing since that trip in March we've had below normal temps and more snow than Jan, Feb and March combined. Woke up to a fresh inch this morning!

Pictures are a challenge on this board, but hope to figure it out someday.

I googled your van and it looks great and is it 4 wheel drive ? that would be a plus for Idaho.

For pictures I go to Click
and select and that will let you get the pictures from your computer,
have your pictures sized to 640x 480 in JPG file before you do this.
Looking forward to seeing your van pictures.

We are leaving Sunday early AM for our cross country trip to the northeast and return to Alaska. We have been looking forward to this trip for a few years. We hate leaving Alaska during this time of year, but we are looking forward to seeing our friends and family out there.

For those who are here in AK now, you chose the best time to come. Not too horribly busy yet, weather is the best we have all year. However things are pretty dry and we worry about wildfires.

Perhaps we will see some of you on our trip. For all of you, have a lovely summer.
