Penthouse pop top

I know this is on the forum somewhere but I canít find a definitive answer. Iím looking at buying a used penthouse top that came on a EB van and putting it on my RB van. Are all of the penthouse pop tops the same size and will they fit either length van? Thanks.

No, not the same size. Can you make it work? Yes, but it’s not particularly easy.

Truth.

If you care to dig deep enough it has been documented on this forum. It has been years though. Good luck!

Thanks, I’m looking for it. I would be willing to make it work if it’s just a matter of some trimming. Probably not worth it if the fiberglass has to be cut and moved. I’m assuming the frame and mechanism is the same, it’s just the top itself that has to be modified

Andrew did it. Doesn’t seem he visits here anymore.

It requires some extra fabrication. You have to cut the rails down. They’re too long for an RB. The front end of the top will have a large gap due to the contour cut. He made a fiberglass junction piece to finish off the front end from an old surfboard.
He made it look really nice in the end.

The top that came from Indiana runs all the way to the front. They’re hard to find though.

Do you have a top yet?

MedicFernando has a very nice EB too for sale.

If you change your mind I have an RB van with an RB top for sale that I’d rally like to get out of my driveway.

Thanks for the info, I think I’ll hold out for a RB top. Hopefully CCV has a take off soon. I looked at the top MedicFernando has for sale and it’s in great shape. I was about to jump on it but I need a direct fit top
