By the time you put on a roofrack on a hightop roof it will be at least 2-3 ft higher than a poptop.
On my US trip June/July fuel economy ranged from 14.5 to 16.4mpg, depending on how hilly the terrain and what speed.
I removed the Yakima roof bars, so with SMB popup, the roof is relatively fuel efficient for a vehicle with a 6.0 V8 diesel.
Go with the electric popup roof, propane heating and cooking, 110 v Inverter & Microwave, with Solar Panel & Regularor.
