    No one wants high tops, petrols or autos - 11k is taking the piss. It would have to be absolutely mint and not have the OAP spec 70s beige interior that seems to plague high tops.

    Mate bought a high top a few years ago for too much, it was horrible inside, ugly outside and when he finally realised his mistake couldn't get shot of it. Eventually he part exed it for another T4, lost about the cost of a half decent van in the process. The dealer still had the pig cluttering his forecourt 12 months later.

    Iíd say yes, but thereís pop tops and then thereís pop tops. Best off doing a bit of research on them before buying a van with a cheap pop top. A decent one can cost up to around £3500-£4000 supplied, fitted and I think colour matched. Thatís just the pop top, not a van with a decent one fitted

    Best to go and look and drive it - if only to rule it out. The experience is worth the effort.

    There are several members with build threads on here who have added high tops to their panel transporters so I wouldn't rule it out until I'd seen one.

    A friend of mine has a 46k manual 2.5TDi T4 Calypso motorhome after years in pop top conversions . Paid £15k last year and it's fully equipped so you're in that financial territory. Best to take a look if you want all the facilities to hand.

    Not a high top fan Reg? Wouldn't mind a high top LWB for work as the old chaps 10 plate transit will fall in have long before a twenty year old T4.
