Re: Betty White!! Added the Pop Top

I'm not familiar with all the Sport mobile lingo but I have the shorter version Van (is that the EB or RB?), and it looks like you have the longer version cargo van. Would the Pop Top that you have have fit mine from front to back?

Re: Betty White!! Added the Pop Top

Yes the top will fit nicely on your van. Heres what I think you should do jump in the van drive to the "meet and greet" here in Jackson in June hang out with 20 or 30 of us Van people. if you want the top and canvas great we can cut the hole and install it in 3 hrs at my shop. Only if I get to cut part of the hole, I love that. If you dont want it just hang out for 3 or 4 days.
the last one I went to was at the Valley Of Fire great times. Look it up and check out the picture's.
I could use another chevy to back me up with all these Fords running around.

yours is a RB regular wheel base
mine is EB extended wheel base

At least for Ford, you are right. Same wheelbase, but the EB has something like an extra 18" of body length behind the rear axle.

Got any more details on this June "meet and greet"!!
If I'm around (I work overseas a lot) I wouldn't mind doing that drive and buying that Pop Top off you, and of course playing around in your shop and yes you can cut holes in my van with your grinding wheel!! Lol

I'm gonna have to measure what the length of my roof is, now you've got me all excited about Pop-Tops!! Lol

Re: Betty White!! Added the Pop Top

I'm planning on it. I'll be coming from Iowa, probably through ND (Teddy Roosevelt NP) and Montana (Yellowstone).
