Kubvan stretch

This was Crsmp5 (burnt toast) original idea, I thought I should promote it to it's own forum as it is has been so popular.

have you seen the pop tops they make for a landrover?? fold up to the side so you can stand inside?? kinda like vw bus but on its side vs front/back end...

looking at how our roofs are made.. you should think of a hinge down one side... then the ability to stand it up and canvas box for the other sides... when folded down have the top up above your head in all the dead/unused lots of headroom area... so no need for roof to be higher..

if my roof or headliner were screwed up id do it so fast.... i think you need to do it... then set it up like a old bus with canvas cots... or like newer ones with panel for foam matress.. i like cot idea as easy to fold/store... you could also build a roof rack into it.. ;)

Definitely putting on a roof rack, I am thinking about a skylight/sunroof, but I am afraid of leaks which means I would probably not mess with a popup roof either. I did find a kubvan on the Samba.com site once that apparently had a pop out side, I tried contacting the guy to get more pictures but no reply.
