A bit late to the thread, top looks great on the window RB. I'm on the fence to go the fixed top way so seeing photos & hearing the reviews is great. I look forward to seeing you dial it in.

Any pictures would be appreciated.
Sorry, can't help with pictures Nrobert10. That Transit top has a nice flat roof, which would make it much easier to mount solar to. The edges look taller than the bubble tops, plus the bubble tapers down in the rear a bit, where the Transit top doesn't appear. The rear line up from the drip rail looks like it stands up straighter too. A much squarer profile than the bubble.

Makes me wonder about the top I got from the salvage. I have always assumed it was a bubble top from Fiberine, but mines got a full fiberglass liner and doesn't taper as much as the Fiberine appears to in their pictures. Mine came off a mid 2000's medical delivery van with the tall rear doors. At 6' tall I can stand anywhere in my van with an inch to spare, more in the middle.

I am also curious what everyone is doing with the factory AC/Heat with these tops.

I have a RB passenger van but really want to get it taller. I don't necessarily want to build mine out as a full camper, just a kid hauler and occasional camper, so the AC/heat is a big deal...

There use to be a bunch of companies that made fiberglass hightops. Most have stopped manufacturing them when the stopped the E series.

Here's a photo of the 24" Transit top from their own site, on an E Series.

And if you know anyone with an older Chevy van, here's a stack of 12" tops in the Waynesboro VA area. Don't know the specific year/size vans but I can find out. I believe these are Viking brand.

Was it on an EB or RB van?

Rob

Edit. It’s a RB if anybody is looking for that length.
