Elevating Roofs

Head Space Guaranteed

An elevating roof is the ultimate enhancement to a camper. It will maximise the space inside your van and provide some much appreciated head room. With the addition of an elevating roof bed, you can multiple the sleeping capacity or create a cosy platform for night time stargazing! Our in-house fitment is subject to the same rigorous standards as the manufacturing process.

We aim to offer as much choice to customers as possible. That’s why we offer UK manufactured roof systems such as Austops and Skyline, as well as German produced Reimo and SCA.

As a result, they are the leading UK manufacturer of elevating roofs. All roofs are spot checked throughout production by quality management systems. Manufactured in-house means Austops are in control of the process to make sure the finished product is to their exacting standards. T5 and T6 roofs are fully TUV evaluated and approved, and all roofs come with a 5-year warranty.

All roofs come with a 5-year warranty covering parts and 2-year warranty covering labour from the date of fitting.

SCA UK has been supplying elevating roofs for over 12 years, being one of the first UK importers of SCA roofs from Germany to UK trade and retail customers. SCA is one of the leading elevating roof manufacturers in the world, offering unrivaled quality and customer service. 


The roofs are characterised by their advanced engineering and excellent quality. Designed by accredited designers, they combine harmoniously with the base vehicle and add to its value. In a word, they fulfil even the most demanding expectations.

SCA 194 High Lift SWB T5/T6 Features

  • Completely new development and the use of the technically demanding vacuum expansion process for the production of the roof shell – an innovation in this product range – form the basis for the production of a sleeper roof with many advantages.

  • The high scissor lifts provide significantly more legroom and enable a sleeping position to be adopted with the head to the rear. The lift has been increased by 25 cm compared with the previous solution.

  • Included in the package is a pop-top wooden slatted bed. High-quality slats with an aluminium frame provide even more comfort when reclining and sleeping.

  • The roof has a higher lift at the rear for more headroom and extra struts for more stability. The curvature of the slats provides more headroom for rear-seat passengers when the bed is folded down and the roof is closed.

  • The locking mechanism is a reliable solution and is done with new Southco locks with integral safety bolts which enable the roof to be locked easily and securely.

  • The roof shell is manufactured using the sophisticated vacuum expansion process. This guarantees accurate and consistent wall thicknesses and enables the external surface of the roof shell to be smooth and non-profiled – an ideal prerequisite for direct attachment of thin solar films just a few millimeters thick without significantly increasing the overall height of the vehicle.
