Re: Penthouse for older Van

Hi,
Ok, a couple things you can do:
- Call SMB, see if they can help you.
- Google to find one for sale in you area.

- Buildt a new one

For the Last Point, a couple things to think about. Out of what will the roof be made of (Fiberglass, ALU.) How do you want to raise the roof, complete roof/just one side?
Have a couple links for some parts, let me know if you kneed them.

Mike

Im would love a 1 side lift it would have to lift in the front to work with the inside. I think that fiberglass would be the best. I would love the links. I have spoken to SMB they have nothing left only new stuff for newer vans differant roof...

Keep searching eBay and Craigslist for an old conversion, and salvage the penthouse. Might take a while to find the right vehicle.


Good luck,
Herb

Good idea Thanks. If this old van wasn't so clean I wouldnt even think about it.
