On road, pop top heights.

Hi,
Just wondering if any pop top owners could let me know the height of their on road pop tops collapsed, as Im looking to buy a 16-17 footer, in the near future and my shed roller door open, has a height of 6'10".

Regards
Higgo

Just had a quick measure of my 17'8" Coromal Excel pop top, 6'4", plus 4 inches for the hatch on top, so sailing close to the wind.
Good luck.

You could try the Ecotourer http://www.ecotourer.com.au/. Apart from that some builders will build a van to go through that door. I know Jayco build some low-tow pop-tops. Some of the smaller builders will build what you want provided it is workable.

Staffy,
I have a Coromal Excel 511 17 footer that is lower than the top of my Troopy.

Can't give you a measurement as I am at work, Troopy couldn't be any higher than 6'4 though.

Have a good one

Hi Higgo.

Just looking at the problem from a different angle.

1: What is the actual height of the shed opening, floor to lintel ?
2: What is the current height between the floor and the bottom of the door skirt when fully open ?
3: What is the height between the floor and the bottom of the roll when fully open ?
4: Is there any obstruction above the roll [ceiling or rafter etc] to prevent the door being raised ?

Although your governed by the finished opening height, its not a hard job to raise the door to gain the full height.

Assuming you can get a couple of inches clearance out of the door and a couple out of deflating the tyres may be the difference between buying the van you want rather than the one you have to.

Cheers.....Lionel.

Something I will investigate further, with the current door height 6'10" van options appear limited.

Hi Staffy,

I have a 1998 5.8m Windsor Dynasty which has a closed height of 2250mm.
It is one of the taller poptops and by comparison has a shorter sleeve length than other poptops.
regards Alan.

You can also but special wheels with smaller diameter hard rubber tyres that drop the van lower to fit under a tight door.
Any mug can be uncomfortable out bush
