I sent them an email & they quoted me $150 today, was $35 per support or did I ask for the wrong thing? Maybe talked to the wrong person? I'll just go with dowels at that price.


thanks,

35$ was for all 4 of them, 150$ must have been something else.

I looked at the bill it was quoted as "4 PH fold down legs" 36.78$ (+shipping)

an 8' 2x4 cut into 4 pieces approx 2' each runs roughly $2.50 in my part of the world. Not beautiful but not the end of the world if you need to level your van or start a fire with them either. I've thought of staining them or wrapping matching upholstery around them, and yes you do have to store them, but mine rode happily between the bed and top and never moved.

The fact that I don't currently own a pop-top van makes it less of a priority I guess.

Pop top broken

My pop top but the dust a week ago on a trip to Baja. While driving on a dirt road I heard a loud THWAP and upon arrival I couldn’t lift the top. I felt underneath and the bolt on the driver side came loose. The inside looks like this. I am not sure if i should disassemble this mechanism with the top up or down? Any idea what I will need to do to repair this? Does anyone have any photos of what it looks like under this white cover?

Pete, sorry for your trouble. These are images of the driver's side front-end bar connection point on my electric top looking back towards front & front to back. I replaced the original bolts with shoulder bolts with the top up working with Larrie video as a guide. < https://www.sportsmobileforum.com/fo...ideo-9838.html >

Post 2 & 5 of this thread sound feasible in raising the penthouse.
