My two favorite pop tops I have ever seen were a late '80s Toyota 4x4 van and an '89 Suburban 4x4. I'd pay good money for either of them if I could find one, but I've only ever seen one example of each.

Holy crap, GTRV is still around! I'm guessing they could convert a Caravan for you, but you'd probably have to get your wallet warmed up. I wonder if they still have the molds for all the fiberglass from the '90s?

Altough those pop-up tops have their convenience, I'm not so excited about them.

Sooner or later, everything shows up at the auction! I spotted this in the front parking lot there today. And people being creatures of habit, I took a guess at what dealer owned it by where it was parked in the lot. I was right! 1995 Grand Caravan with a Lulu Island (later became GTRV) pop top conversion. This one has a whole 118k KMs (73k miles). The wholesaler who has it says the original owner told him it was $19000 to get converted back in 1995, in case you wondered what this kind of stuff cost 20 years ago. It sleeps 4, has a fridge, stove, and sink. I could have bought it for around $6k, which would be a deal if I wanted to keep it, but I don't, and I could probably re-sell it for $8-9K, but it's almost November and I don't want to have to sit on the thing until spring in case it doesn't sell. Now, if it had been a 4x4 Suburban on the other hand...
