Who makes very tall roof for Extended Ford campers?

Someone makes a very high roof for extended Ford camper vans that looks fairly modern. Any idea who that may be?

I first saw one in Yosemite but couldn't get the van's name, and also think the same extra-high roof has appeared on the gallery on this forum. It's not listed on SMB web site as option.

By the way, although it looks well over 24 inches high, it doesn't look like a box like some used on mobility vans.

Re: Who makes very tall roof for Extended Ford campers?

Are you thinking of the Cruiser-II top?


That is an SMB top. Cycle vans and Fiberine both make Super-Camper tops but they are not as sleek as the Cruiser-II top.

THey also had this monstrous top at one point, but I guess they don't do it anymore?

Carringb, definitely not the Cruiser II. Looks more like the lower picture. It was on newer Econoline model so I figured its a current top.

While it may be the top on the lower picture, it looked even taller, particularly when viewed from behind.

Re: Who makes very tall roof for Extended Ford campers?

I saw the van in question back in May and can't recall if I took a picture of it. Will look to see if I did. It was tall like the one here I found on Internet but had sharper/edgier lines. From rear it looked even taller, although I'm going from memory and it's been a while.

I saw that exact conversion in Yosemite as well, don't know the brand or the top but it sure is high.

Did you look at Fiberine's site? They make lots of em.

I did, and saw the 30-inch-high roof but that one is very different. Maybe there is another Fiberine roof I missed.

The van roof I saw in Yosemite was kind of unique in that the cross section looked a little like a truncated "A-frame". The roof's sides leaned inward making it fairly narrow at the very top.

I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for, but I think this is the RV company that rents the van you have pictured above: http://www.apollorv.com/rv-rentals-euro-tourer.aspx. If it is, you could always ask them.

I was thinking of that one too. It's an AdventureWagen isn't it? I don't know who makes/made it though.
