Just installed - 24" Fixed hightop

March 1, 2019 the folks at Fiberine installed my new 24" bubble top. Fantastic build quality and very rigid. Options included:


12" x 44" screened and sliding windows
1/2" OSB reinforced ceiling
4" x 1/2" side strips for awning and cabinets


Full time standing room is spectacular! Added several pictures to my album.

Will probably go with a durable truck bed liner on the top. Time to get busy on my build out... Solar/battery design and insulation for PacNW weather are up first.

That looks great!
Should keep you nice and warm in the winter.
What is the interior height now?

Thanks

Never really had a chance to see the inside of a hightop prior to any build-out, that looks huge. Your Vans going to look great with that top painted, might consider liner on the rockers as well.

Looks great! I have done bed liner on a few tops and other projects. I strongly recommend getting tintable liner and having the tint base mixed by a pro. Don't skimp on quality. I did one with a cheaper Nason? tint base once and it was ok but the next I went for Dupont paint and it matched much better. It's not expensive or difficult to do this, all things considered, and it does make a difference IMO when viewed from a distance.

Enjoy that new gymnasium.

I've never used the brand Monstaliner but reading their webpage they're geared towards tintable colors. I also like they discuss ways to achieve various degrees of texture from almost flat smooth to gnarly chunks for traffic. Worth looking into IMHO: Monstaliner do-it-yourself roll-on truck bed liner
