Advantages of having an elevating roof installed

Elevating roofs are specially fitted flat roofs that can be raised up at an angle either at the front or the rear of a vehicle. There are many advantages to having an elevated roof installed and this article will take a look at some of the reasons many opt for this type of van conversion.

  1. More spacious

First and foremost, the extra space inside the van is probably the most obvious, but biggest appeal to choosing elevating roofs. Not only does it make the van a lot less claustrophobic, it can allow for people to stand up in the vehicle comfortably; this, in turn, can make tasks, such as cooking, much easier. A fairly straight-forward alteration to your van such as this offers a significant improvement on the way you use your van. An elevated roof allows you to get the best out of your vehicle and if you have a further conversion, you can use the features inside with more ease.

  1. Potential for further conversions

As just mentioned, if you already have a full van conversion, an elevated roof installation can allow you to use the features to their full potential. However, if you have not yet begun your conversion, or are looking to convert your van further, an elevated roof is a great way to create more potential conversions. For example, you are able to incorporate a roof bed which can turn a 2 berth van into a 4 berth van conversion, simply because of the extra height space an elevating roof creates. These roofs can prove as a great investment as they can lead to further alterations and can be a stepping stone that begins/improves your van conversion.

  1. Ventilation

An important factor in maintaining the quality of your van is ventilation, an elevating roof installation can be the perfect solution to keep your van properly ventilated. Although van conversions give a small space more purpose, because it is a small area, it can mean that the space does not get enough air to keep the van fresh and ventilated. This can cause issues, such as damp and mould, which means you will end up having to unnecessarily spend more money to fix this issue. An elevating roof will help avoid this potential problem and would be a one-time purchase.

  1. Flexibility

The elevating roof function itself is a very flexible feature to add to your van conversion. It means that you can extend the roof whenever it is needed or suitable for you. When it is not elevated, it will act as a normal van roof and will not add any height unless you require it. This means you are still able to use the van for everyday practical uses as well as use the conversion to its full potential when you wish. The compact nature of the van is just another reason why people are happy to go forward with this vehicle addition, as it means that the basic functionality of the van does not change, but actually gives more uses instead.
