    Hi
    I bought this 2001 78 with a pop-up roof one year ago. The car is fine, but the fabrics in the tent part of the roof are in bad shape. Do anybody recognize what make the roof is?
    I have checked with Tom and Alu-cab, but it's not their. It had a producers logo on it, but that has been painted over by PO. I have an old pic of it, but difficult to see who it is. Takmerke.JPG

    Assuming you can get it off any sailmaker could make another using it for pattern .

    Yes, that is an option. Terrible amount of rivets and screws though.

    Yes it does, but I have checked with Tom, and he says it's not theirs. And according to Alu-Cab, Tom uses their roof.

    I agree that they do not look the same, Tom's and Alu-Cab. But this is what German Alu-Cab agent Genesis Import answered when I asked if it was their roof:

    "Tom's Fahrzeugtechnis is our dealer and theefore they also sell Alu Cab conversions. It is definately not an Alu Cab product, so you'd have to look for different brands and their distrubutors."

    On the other hand, Tom might use several roof types?

    But I have sourced who originally equipped the car: https://innovation-campers.de/
    Awaiting their answer about the roof.
