I have a white 2017 Transit with a white SMB poptop. We were camping in New Mexico this summer and there was a green 2017 Transit with a white SMB pop top in the campsite next to us. The two tone paint job looked great.

I don't know how to attach photos, but here's a link to my blog. If you scroll down a bit on the October 10 entry you'll see a photo of the green w/white Transit.

Westfalia has been two tone for years

Many if not most VW Campers have white pop tops regardless of van color. There is about 50 years of two-tone van history. Maybe CCV has a green logo they can put on your van to make it look like white was your choice.

If it were us, we'd leave it white because we travel primarily in the southwest and dark vs light color on the roof makes a BIG temperature difference. Maybe just get the sides painted up and over, say 1/4" so it looks like it matches, but then you have the reflective properties of a white top. This is what I was going to do with my FlipPac before I sold it.

My experience with a SMB PH on a Transit:

Additional rear tail. turn & emergency lights: I had SMB add lights on the rear of the PH. Should you have to change a tire on a dark night, and have the rear doors open, the doors block the tail lights. Also provides extremely viewable tail/turn lights during normal driving. I always wand those behind me to see me! Cost me about $350
Tape on the roof at penthouse: Paint on roof wore thru in just 4,000 miles. I had pickup truck bed liner sprayed on roof all around unction w/ PH
