Jerba Pop Top Roof
Jerba Pop Top Roof
As standard all our elevating roof campervans are fitted with our own designed Jerba Campervans pop top roof – our Tiree, Cromarty, Sanna and Taransay layouts
High-end features engineered to perfection we feel make our roof an innovative step ahead of the rest;
- VW T6/T5 Short & Long Wheel Base – Front & Rear Elevating
- Fully Removable & Unzipping Ventile Cotton Canvas
- Highest Quality Parts – YKK zips, stainless steel hinges & lock
- Seam Sealed Stitching & Midge Proof Window Vents
- 100kg Roof Rack Carrying Capacity
Highest Quality Gas Struts
Having seen too many weak and poor quality gas struts rust, leak fluid and fail on other elevating roofs, we only fit far stronger struts with a wider gauge and far greater durability.The high quality struts we fit make opening and closing the roof simple.
Seam Sealed Stitching
We have invested in a complete seam sealing machine that will make the stitched seams in our Ventile roof canvas 100% watertight – just like your Goretex jacket! The current solution from other campervan converters is to supply customers with a basic tube of seam seal glue for a DIY temporary fix, something that we felt was just not good enough
Just unzip and slide the canvas free making it so simple for a customer to repair, treat, dry or even replace the whole canvas at home. If your Jerba pop top canvas needs any repair then there’s no need for a specialist converter; remove it at home and post it off – saving you travel time and hours of labour costs to remove and replace.
No Standing Water on Roof
Attention to detail means that the Jerba pop top roof is gently curved in a convex shape to always shed rainwater and prevent puddles forming on top of the van.
Fully Unzipping Canvas
The Jerba pop top roof features a watertight zip manufactured by global market leader YKK. Take a closer look at the vast majority of high performance outdoor wear and you’ll find a YKK zip. Undo our watertight YKK zip to remove the whole canvas, or just unzip the front to allow in the sun, or to just enjoy the fresh air and take in a view. With a chunky gauge it’s simple to zip and unzip, it won’t catch, jam and burst.
Using very high specification 100% cotton Ventile material means full breathability but also excellent water and wind tightness. Ventile is spun, woven and dyed in Switzerland and is used worldwide by organisations such as NATO. This high performance cotton fabric is a step above the regular cotton fabrics used by other elevating roof manufacturers. Take a look at our The Importance of a Ventile Cotton Roof Canvas blog article to understand the key advantages of a Ventile roof canvas.
100kg Carrying Capacity
Most pop top roofs have a recommended maximum carrying capacity of 60KG, but our super strong fibreglass structure is 17mm thick which means you can carry kayaks, canoes or just plenty of extra gear hidden away in a roof box.
Secure Roof Locking System
The Jerba elevating roof is installed with a simple internal rotary lock which is combined with webbing straps. This makes it easy to use and is located in view so you can be 100% sure that it is fully engaged. Other pop top roof designs often hide such locks from view and snagging the roof canvas inside the mechanism can be a real issue. Our lock is finished in stainless steel.
Tough Midge Proof Mesh
We’ve sourced a tough and durable mesh screen that won’t tear and snag. Fine enough to keep the smallest Scottish midge out your camper, you can open vents when cooking without letting in the biting monsters! All our mesh vents can be totally covered or uncovered by either a zip or Velcro flap – so if you don’t want a cold draft then you can easily cover it up.
2 Metres High Clearance
Fibre glass construction with a maximum closed height of two metres and a fixed sleek nose cone design that reduces wind noise and compliments the lines and look of the T6.
Optional Roof Bed
The Jerba elevating roof has the option of a Beech wood slatted roof bed that is 112cm wide and 190cm long that supports a combined weight of 150kg. Unlike a single piece bed board it will flex to mould with your body, making it far comfier and giving you a better night’s sleep.The slats also allow air flow and prevent the dampness and condensation that always builds up between a bed board and the mattress above. The mattress is made from 30mm dense foam and has a fully removable zip cover. The bed is 112cm wide and is 190cm long. It will also support a combined weight of 150kg, so it’s not just designed for children.
Head Height in the Back
Keeping enough head height in the back for adults to sit in the camper vans rear travel seats is very important to consider – it could affect both how the van can be used and ultimately it’s resale value. With our raised fibreglass design on the Jerba pop top roof, we give you enough room to fit in a very comfortable roof bed, but still have sufficient head room to fit a market leading rear seat.
