Looks like you are making what fiberine calls the "transit top"
Full Size Van Tops

I would think you would end up with about 76" interior with the 24" and a 66" with the 14" top, could you verify when you get yours on?
Do you have both tops at your place now?

IF I were to go this route I think an 18" would be the way to go, just enough for my 5'10" carcass to stand vertical.
That said, do you think the demand will be that great for a 5'6" interior height?

Thanks for offering this to the community.

Could be that SMB would be willing to sell the mold if they're not going to use it.

Mark,

I am so close to buying a fiberglass topper for my EB van. I have been looking at the super camper but after randomly finding this post....I think you may be the best option for me. I am based just south of you and have a few questions for you. I think the 24" may be the way to go, do you offer them with windows? What would be the process to potentially give you my money?!

Stoked!

Steve

If you want a demo model project I could drive out there if you will help with the install. We could video it for the DIY parts. Anxious to see how your pricing turns out it looks like you have a good setup.

HI Dirk -
I'll send you a PM. We are doing a pre-order right now… so might be a good time to get in. We can help for sure with the install.
Cheers
Mark

I'm most likely going to go with a hard top soon. Some images on the van would be great. Do you have a cost yet?

The transit top is different and has less shape to it… if you really look at my top it's a lot different, from the lines at the bottom, top and middle.

Saline - I'll be sending you a PM in a second. The cost is $1650.00 for a 24" EB and $1450.00 for a 24" SB. If you want the top shipped to you from Loveland CO then shipping charges will apply and I'd can PM this to you as well if you send me your zip code. Or you can drive down to Loveland, CO.

Forgot to address the 14" top, Several asked for it and since I have the plug already I can make it. But the reason for buying both the 24" and 14" plug is I have something else intended for the 14" top as a DIY kit for a later date...

Now that is a price that will get me to drive out there. Does that price incline some wood reinforcement?

Any idea when RB tops might start to be available?
