"When not in use you can hardly spot the POP-TOP converted 110" from a standard one. The difference is almost invincible."

Fun with translations.. can't argue with that.

thats awesome, would love something for my 90 on that someday.

I saw one in Australia (on Fraser Island) that popped up from the roof then folded down to make an elevated (3-4" or so off the ground) 3 person tent behind the vehicle. The rear door could open and close, and the upper part looked like it could be used for storage (looked like filled up roof rack bag up there) when the tent was deployed. It used the roof rack and the trailer hitch for support. I saw it on an older former military soft-topped 127, and a smaller version on an older Toyo FJ (40?).
I'll see if i have a pic of it. Can't imagine how expensive that would be though.

i dont get the clamshell fascination. i think the side flip dorm mobile got it right. it provides head room the whole way down instead of just the rear.

I think there are two advantages to the clamshell off the front:
1- less exposed fabric to rain, closing them wet can cause problems
2 the ability to face into the wind.

The second issue is the one that made us not go with a poptop at all. Many of the Euros we met with similar setups (ex-tec) on defenders or toyotas stated that it was a major problem.

id be curious to see what the total of exposed fabric is, but there is definitely a reduction of fabric/body interface seaming to worry about on the dorm style.

why cant you put the hinge to the wind on a dorm syle? and while the same surface faces the wind, the clam is taller and places more force on the hinge... think sailboat mast...

im hanging with the dorm style being superior in function.

Not that it really matters because I think they are both cool, but i meant aiming the front of the truck into the wind so that you had a smaller profile. The the hinge in the front is a gradual slope rather than a wall.
In strong wind there in no chance to keep either of these open.

Maybe at 30 or 40mph but the dormobile top is really heavy.
