pop-top elevating roofs

The Best of British

When it comes to camper conversions, every poptop roof manufactured by Austops really is the Best of British. The roof was designed and developed in Britain , it is built in Britain and the vast majority of its component parts are manufactured in Britain too. And to steal the tag line from a German beer commercial, we think it’s ‘probably the best in the world’.

In these turbulent days, being proud to be British can become a bit political if you’re not careful, what with Brexit and everything. But we are simply proud to produce brilliant poptop roofs and we’re based in Britain just because that’s where we live. I guess if we lived in Nepal, we’d be the proudest (and possibly the only) Nepalese poptop manufacturer…but I don’t suppose the Himalayan campe rvan market is particularly strong, so we’d most likely go out of business rather fast.

Our diverse range of poptop roofs have evolved over the years into the products you see today. It’s taken a great deal of work, many sleepless nights and thousands of hours to achieve; and the development never stops. At every stage of the process, we look for improvements and solutions to potential issues. This invariably means we end up on the phone trying to find a solution as close to home as we can. This isn’t some jingoistic policy on our behalf; it’s simply easier and it keeps costs down and this means we can pass those savings on to you, making an Austops roof exceptional value for money too.

Don’t get me wrong; we’ll travel to the far side of the planet to find the quality we need, but invariably we can find the same or better quality far closer to home. And of course the less distance things travel, the better for the planet too.

So there you have it: Austops offers you ‘The Best of British’.

Of course with the English language being what it is, ‘The Best of British’ also means ‘good luck’; so does an Austops roof offer good luck too?

Well I’m not sure about that, but having a camper with one of our roofs certainly means that you have the flexibility to explore at home or abroad in an exceptionally versatile vehicle; and that seems quite lucky to me.

I’ve no idea why ‘The Best of British’ can mean good luck. If you think about it English must be a nightmare to learn as we have so many bizarre sayings. After all, I can write about an Austops roof in a way that makes total sense, but at the same time it makes no sense whatsoever.

For example, an Austops roof doesn’t cost a bomb. It’s not a faff to use and unlike some that are pants, we think the Austops roof is mint. True, you do have to splash out to get one, but you want your camper conversion to blow your socks off and not to go pear shaped after all.

So when it’s brass monkeys outside, have a butcher’s at other camper vans, separate the wheat from the chaff and Bob’s your uncle; Austops are the best.

So bite the bullet and order yours today.
