SCA Elevating Roofs

The addition of an elevating roof can add much needed headroom for cooking and day to day Living/Camping within your vehicle, as well as extra space for sleeping; Transforming the T5 or T6 into a far more practical 4 berth van making the vehicle seem a lot more spacious.

SCA “Deluxe” Elevating Roofs:

The SCA elevating roof can be fitted to the VW T5 or T6 Short Wheel Base (SWB) and Long Wheel Base (LWB) vehicle. Be assured SCA are of exceptional build quality, and come complete with the roof bed and reinforcing system. This is a highly recommended Roof due to its high quality, reliability and excellent finish.




The SCA elevating roofs are available with either front or rear elevation. When they are closed, they only add a small fraction of height to the vehicle. (Roof Depth 100mm) This means that the overall height of the vehicle remains below two meters. Floor level to the highest elevating point of the roof when open is 2450mm.

Here at NWCC we order all of our SCA roofs & roof pods into the UK in a white gel coat; On request they are painted in our own body shop to guarantee a perfect finish and a long lasting shine to coincide with the base vehicle colour.

We have found in recent deliveries that sadly the SCA roof pods arrive in house with imperfections within the gel coat. This isn’t an issue when colour coding to suit a non Candy White base vehicle, however we strongly suggest even when your base vehicle is VW Candy White you additionally request a colour code to the SCA pod; This will guarantee a perfect finish.
