About HiLo Roofs:

The original low profile elevating roof - made especially for your VW T5/T5.1 &T6 Transporter

The Hilo roof is the best around!
Brilliant design, British engineering resulting in a truly amazing roof that you don't know is there until you need the extra space.
It was the low profile that attracted me to the Hilo roof in the first place and people still can't believe I have a pop top fitted. Wayne and the team did the full fit for me and the workmanship and service was first class.
The whole experience from meeting Wayne to look at the roof for the first time to picking the Van up after completion was both personal and professional and I would recommend the Hilo roof to anyone looking to create a dream camper.
Thank you again Wayne – you are a legend!
Cheers

The hilo roof is by far the the lowest and highest roof we ever seen , it Has made a massive difference to our van and we have had loads of very good comments . The quality of the fitting is 1st class . We had the 2 day fit which means finishing the interia carpeting and fitting some trims , basic DIY stuff .
A Big thankyou to Wayne and the team .

Happy campers

Excellent service , excellent product.
We went to see Wayne who was happy to spend time with us, showing us the product and explaining the process etc.
The process was simple and easy even down to being ran to the train station and back - nothing was too much trouble.
The roof is excellent and for those who just want the roof - you cant get better in my opinion - whe we had had it done I was asked regularly when I was having the roof fitted - you really cant see it when its down. For anyone who is slightly mechanically minded you will marvel at the quality of the engineering.
Overall I cant rate it enough - the Best of British high top living.

Had my roof converted in november in a two day fit, was amazed at the quality of the workmanship and materails used. Wayne talk me through all the finish / trim i need to do. Having spole to him a number of time with question he always there ready to help. The roofs are by far the best profiled tops on the market. An the paint work on the roof is perfect match to my one off colour sceme! So top marks there too.
HiLo roofs are a fantastic friendly family run business an i would highly recommend them to anyone.

We were extremely pleased with the roof conversion recently completed by Hilo. The finish and quality of the work is outstanding.

We are so glad that we did our research into roof conversions & can honestly say it looks so much better than standard roof pod conversions.

We would highly recommend in an instant.

If Carlsberg made pop tops, they would still wish for a HiLo!

To say that I am a picky customer is an understatement; in addition I am an Automotive Engineer. Between fitting and leaving this feedback I have been over the roof time and time again looking for anything I am not happy with. Not just the finish but the fixings – Everything!
The quality is excellent, the design superb, the HiLo team fantastic. Every query and question answered, all my quirky requests fulfilled. It has been an absolute pleasure to deal with the team.
I am so proud of my roof that if your stood by the van, be warned you will be getting the full demo. From the Tardis like headroom, versatility of window configuration ( from snug warm to wind tunnel ) and the scenic option which takes the van to a whole new level literally.

Yes these roofs do cost a little more than some, but every time some says “I thought you had a pop top fitted”, I know I made the right choice.

The feeling you’ve got the best is priceless, thank you HiLo

Hi Rebekah thank you so much for your wonderful words of support! It was a real pleasure to work with you to get the HILo pop top that you wanted & the colour of the canvas is constantly a source of real interest with new customers- a real one-off & unique HILO roof conversion!
Hope you have lots of fun with it & don't forget the photos when you have time.
Have a wonderful 2015
Kind regards

I first read about the roof before I purchased my van and after seeing it in the flesh I wanted one even more.
Wayne and his team are great people to deal with and very down to earth.
I am very impressed with workmanship and the quality of the roof, if I was starting another conversion hilo would be on top of my list.

The whole experience and customer service was excellent!
I love the design of the Hilo Roof because it’s different to any other elevating roof on the market, looks great with the low design. I would recommend it to anyone.

An amazing roof so descrete when down had to convince one chap that it was a pop top as he didn't believe me! And when it's up its huge my old pop top could barely roll over as my feet just fit in. Now you can fit either way have even had my 15 month old in his travel top up there. Loads of head room when he bed is up again compared to my old roof as you got to the back your head would hit the roof. With this even hight all the way you can even use the sliding cover as a stand up bed.

The other thing that sold it to me after having a bad experience with a strap securing roof with a bracket failing and the whole roof coming off on the M4. The hilo roof is far superior with a latch fitting with a solid clunk to secure in place along with 4 further securing bolts in each corner.

The low profile of the roof pretty much eliminates the wind noise I had with the other roof.

VanQuest fitted the roof for me top class job a lot of time and effort spent taking he old roof out removing the furniture then re fitting.

Great communication from the hilo team queries answered very promptly by phone or email.

The product sells it self well done team

A great two days working with Wayne and the boys but got to admit it was eek ! When the disc cutter went into the roof of my T5. The result though is worth it.

The advantage of the roof raising high at the rear of the van has totally changed my mind on the kitchen pack and rock and roll bed and have decided to be different from the rest.
Will be visiting the trade stands at this summers shows with my scribbled drawings and then finish the build in the winter.

The T5 is a family project and everyone is very impressed with roof, even friends who own fully converted vans can see the advantage of the extra space coupled with the long wheel base. My one mate remarked " When the roofs up you could go into the Giraffe removal business "

The roof raises so high though you have to watch out for trees on camp sites, but stows as if it is a normal van and gets under the height barriers at car parks and wild life parks with no bother.

Thanks to Sharon and Wayne at HI Lo.

I have had a hilo roof fitted to my lwb t5 and as much as I love the photos you see online it's even better in the flesh! The engineering put into the frame puts the rest to shame, the service from Wayne, Sharon and the team is top notch really nice to meet genuine nice people. Wayne takes the the time to go through the whole operation of the roof and what I needed to do to complete it (one day fit) I would recommend this to anyone as I feel the look and quality is so much better than SCA and Remo. If anyone is thinking about having one and wants to see mine please contact the Hilo team and they can arrange it with me.

Wayne one for a future design would be to incorporate an awning rail into the frame.

All the best for the future John. Bristol

Absolutely fantastic product, the engineering is so clever , so impressive , Wayne is a really great guy takes time to explain things . After sales is great as I had the one day fit deal and was calling for advice ECT nothing was a problem, Don't be put off by other roof suppliers as they will try to dissuade you don't listen it is the main part of the conversion and what a fantastic improvement to them tin bath looking roofs offered by the other company's out there , cheers Chris Alderley edge , email for any more info munro66@btinternet,com

Hi wayne,Sharon and all the workshop guys. Me and my wife are really chuffed with the roof it does exactly what it says on the tin!! We wanted a roof that's invisible when it's down and a bed when it's up and this baby fits the bill. We,ll be getting out when the sun plays out and I'd gladly show people who are interested in this product . It takes time to do this conversion properly so ignore the bad press it's not just changing a wheel ! Thanks again from wayne and Jo murphy

We'd first found out about HiLo at the camper mart show up in Telford and we just couldn't believe our eyes!! When the roof is down you would never now it had a pop top on it!! It's the highest roof when up and the lowest profile when down! Amazing. We met Wayne the manufacturer of this roof up at the show, what a lovely genuine bloke. We spoke a few times on the phone and he explained everything to us and answered every question asked. We went for a day fit with HiLo and all went really well. The roof is absolutely amazing and Wayne and his team have done a top job! No problems what so ever. He even took us in to Preston and picked us up again when all was done. He gives you a full list of jobs to complete along with all the kit required to do so. He left the van in the condition that it went to him in, no damage done what so ever. I highly recommend Wayne and his team (HiLo roofs)
Thanks so much.
