As with a lot of other firms I could say how passionate I am about VW’s, however this would be a slight understatement. Apart from my growing family, I live and breath VW’s.

I have now been given the opportunity to turn what I love doing into a full time occupation.
I can guarantee my heart and soul will go into repairing or putting your cherished VW back on the road. My rates are comparable to other local businesses and my work is of a high standard. I have a good eye for detail and I’m dedicated to the job in hand.
I will undertake anything from quick repair jobs right through to full restorations. I also provide vehicle servicing and pre-MOT checks.
For any work you need please either call me or contact me at email@example.com and we can talk about your needs. In some instances it may be necessary for me to come and see you and your vehicle, if the work needed is not straight forward or if the vehicle is currently off the road.
PopTop Roofs is a major UK supplier of campervan roofs, campervan beds and campervans
Originally our business concentrated on the moulding, supply and fitting of GRP Roof lights / Skylights for projects of all shapes and sizes throughout the UK and as with all growing businesses we began to look at new markets and opportunities for our skills and expertise.
Through personal knowledge and interest in campervans we established that there were no significant manufacturers of campervan roofs in the UK as many roofs were imported from Germany. With plenty of effort and testing we produced our own moulds and we started to produce a range of campervan roofs for VW campervans.
Due to persistence, hard work and attention to details we swiftly began to make inroads into the UK roof market and our roof range has now extended to include a wide range of manufacturers vans. You can check out our full selection of campervan roofs at www.poptoproofs.co.uk and our new range of super hi lifting and low profile roofs at www.streamline-campervan-roofs.co.uk
As our manufacturing expanded we decided to introduce a range of complimentary campervan beds which began to sell well within our growing customer base. The same care, attention to detail and after sales support that had made our roofs so popular within the campervan conversion industry meant that our seat beds were extremely well received and we soon became a UK leading manufacturer of both campervan roofs and seat beds.
As we already manufacture two of the key elements of a campervan conversion, the elevating campervan roof and rock/roll seat beds, we decided to start converting and selling our own stock of vehicles. We have offered a roof and seat bed installation service for many years so adding in the other elements of a conversion has been a relatively straight forward process. Taking our core values of quality, attention to details and great service to its ultimate conclusion in the campervan market we now provide everything from elevating roofs all the way through to full campervan conversions.
Testing and safety have always been high on our list of priorities and many of our beds and roofs frames have been stress tested under simulated impact conditions in line with EC Directive 76/115/EEC. Watch some of our bed/frame testing videos.
PopTop Roofs is a major UK supplier of campervan roofs, campervan beds and campervans and we have several websites outlining the range of related products we sell that may be of interest to you including our new streamline Hilo Campervan Roofs

Who Are We?.. Happy Campers!
“It’s amazing to see those happy camper faces – we’re changing people’s lives and we love that,” Lol Harmer.
Base Campers was started by two friends – a product designer from Cornwall and an engineer and flooring specialist from London – who have spent 20 years travelling and living in converted vans.
We don’t just build and sell campers, we use them, so we know what works – and only the best will do.
Everything is custom-made and done in-house with a meticulous (almost obsessive) attention to detail. Sub-standard pre-fab packs and MDF are banned from our workshop, but high-end materials are standard, like Superva (lightweight furniture board), and VW Rusty Lee Rock and Roll beds.
Every retrofit is different, so the first question we ask you is: “What are you going to use it for?” Then we can make sure the design suits your needs.

Alan Schofield has been making replacement parts for split screen vans for over twenty five years. His first Split led him into the underworld of the Volkswagen enthusiast, real people who owned a camper van so they could go on family holidays and travel.
When the MOT came round, his first split, BJA 970B, failed on sills, inner wheel arch, battery tray and lower front inner and outer panels. So Alan used his many years experience as a panel beater to cut out the rust, and using what was left of the original panels fabricate good replacements.
At the Stockport and District VW owners club meeting, another member had a similar problem with his bus, Alan showed him what he’d done and was asked if he could make the panels needed to keep their beloved on the road for just a bit longer. The rest, as the cliché goes, is history.
Back in the old days Alan, his wife Stephanie and their three sons would go to the VW shows in their 23 Window Samba, which has been with the family since 1987 and was featured in the 5th edition of Volksworld magazine. They would spread out a blue sheet, and on it would be his hand-made panels, by lunch time he would be sold out and have taken many orders, as well as securing a list of people who wanted their van restoring. So Classic Volkswagen Restoration was born.
From those first shows at Stanford Hall, VW Action (then at the Royal Showground Stoneleigh), Dubfreeze, BVF, VW Northwest at Tatton Park and Vanfest, Alan realised that his panels would be in demand.
Through the Split Screen Van Club (Alan is member 240) more and more people were contacting him for advice and to request a particular panel or rubber seal for the windows and doors. Alan always carried at least three photograph albums of his own restoration projects and these were used to explain parts and fitting.
Soon many many parts and seals were developed. These parts and photographs were added to the broken down illustrations of each van which helped immensely with the task of identification and understanding. The development of these catalogues was undertaken by Alan’s eldest son Peter. In 2012 Schofields sent a brand new website live. it doesn’t have the exploded diagrams on most of the parts, but it did make it a lot easier to order parts and see the pictures of what you’re ordering.
Within a few years of starting the restoration business, Alan realised that there simply wasn’t enough time to restore vans and make the panels enthusiasts had ordered, even with several employees including middle son Steve, who at the time was a mechanic at a VW Audi main dealer near Manchester.
Even after extending the 60ft garage to the rear of their family home the business still needed more space and family discussions would go late into the night about whether this “VW scene” was going to last and whether it would be worth moving to a bigger premises. About this time a friend of youngest son Stuart showed an interest, Alan, showed him the workshop, and then passed him a pair of tin snips. He clearly had the skill and Rick soon became a full time member of the Schofield team.
By the end of the 1990s you could identify Alan’s trade plot by the familiar sight of a full mock up of a Split and Bay window van made purely from replacement panels and genuine Volkswagen panels (N.O.S) and replacement seals. The company was developing a website helped along by the youngest of his three sons, Stuart, the parts catalogues were becoming more and more comprehensive, a Family business in the true sense of the word.
Today, A H Schofield simply manufactures and supplies the metal and pretty much everything else. They strive to stock the best quality possible including Genuine VW panels and seals, as well as Brazilian, German and American reproductions, so you can repair your van, more importantly; they provide advice on the best way to fit them, based on years of experience. Their new company slogan is “Buy it, Fit Drive it” which pretty much says it all.
Not only do they supply customers direct, but ship parts World Wide including Europe, America, and Australia and as far as the Falkland Isles.
Alan and the team have always prided themselves on the personal touch and to that end ensure that whoever calls is given the help and advice needed to keep their pride and joy on the road. The Schofields workforce now includes: Alan, Rick, Dan, Big Dan, Ste, The other Ste, Pete, Martin, Kieran, Bill, Ben, Eric and Teresa. The demand for more parts means more work & the team keep growing all the time.
As you look around the workshop you can see folders, guillotines, spot welders, press and CNC machines and all manner of templates and jigs which are used to produce the panels. Many of the parts supplied by Alan Schofield’s are the best you can get, but as we all know, some of the pattern parts out there are not exactly perfect. “We have always tried to provide good fitting panels, that’s why in the early days I spent a large amount of time sourcing N.O.S panels, we use these as templates to make exact, or better replicas” We now stock a huge amount of Wolfsburg West panels too, all of which are superb quality. Luckily that saves us every having to tool up ourselves to manufacture certain parts.
Not only do they make their own, but like most other parts retailers, sell mass produced panels and as Alan explains some need modifying. “…for example if there are certain parts not up to standard but we do not produce them in house, we will do our best to improve them as best we can. Like the early bay inner step repairs. The holes have been put in the wrong position, so we will make a plate with the new holes and fit the captive nuts for the bumper steps, and then spot weld to the panel to improve it, which no other company currently does.
It is clear that Alan and Rick’s experience of working on the vehicles has given them the knowledge, and they understand that at the heart of the VW scene are enthusiasts that want to do the work themselves “That’s how it all came about, we want people to buy our panels and rubbers with the knowledge that they are right and if we can advise and help them out with the fitting then that’s a bonus.” As Alan says “the fact that right hand drive vans are becoming thin on the ground means that more enthusiasts are prepared to repair a really corroded vehicle, we are currently developing a easy way to convert our left hand drive (LHD) full cargo floor panels to RHD. Due to customer demand for special orders we are constantly developing our range of panels.”
Alan Schofield is now an established name on the VW scene, some say he’s a fanatic, others say he is a visionary, but what Alan H Schofield stands for is the family side of the VW scene. “My aim has always been to help people keep their campers on the road, it’s become a way of life now, we are all enthusiast here and love the VW scene, we look forward to the shows and have a great time putting a face to the folks on the end of the telephone, and it’s great when we have the chance to check out a van that’s been put back on the road because we’ve supplied the panels.”
“I honestly didn’t think the VW scene would last this long, it’s been brilliant, but we wouldn’t be here today if wasn’t for the customers and I would like to say thanks to them all, We have made many good friends through the Volkswagen scene, it’s part of our lives, so thanks and see you at the next show”

We are a small family run business specialising in classic VW restoration, repairs or modification in our fully equipped workshop. We know that your van is an important part of the family and we want you to feel as if you are part of the restoration. We stay in close contact keeping you posted on updates and progress encouraging site visits by appointment. This is a good way to explain what has been done and what is left to do and explain where your money has been spent.
We have many years’ experience in classic restoration. As we specialise in vans and work with them day in and out we have come across vans that require a major restoration where the chassis is almost non-existent requiring major fabrication to something not quite as drastic and getting a van through MOT.
All work is photographed at various stages as a history of your restoration.
We strongly believe in doing a job right the first time, we take pride in what we do and we love seeing the vans through the different stages whether it’s stock or custom we can cater for all your needs.
We believe in treating customers the way we would expect to be treated ourselves.
Media blasting section
We have an in house fully enclosed blast facility where the vans are media blasted to remove the majority of paint and rust. All the running gear is removed and the vans are placed onto a roll frame so all of the underside can be cleaned thoroughly… If there is any corrosion then the blast room will uncover it. Not all of the vans have this type of media blasting as it can distort the large panels like the roof and centres of the doors and side panels. There are different types of media can be used depending on the job required.

TSR started in the late 90’s with an idea of putting a more reliable engine into a VW as customers were getting fed up with the cost and unreliability of air cooled engines. We thought we would start the project with the highest form of motor racing i.e. drag racing and this is how TSR was born.
We then developed a VW Beetle for the drag track, this car is known as “No Remorse”. It was the first car to be entered and to start the A/E VW drag racing class, this class has now got some of the fastest VW’s in Europe.
After project building for drag racing the question was asked: ‘Can this conversion be used on the road?’ After developing an efficient cooling system for the Subaru engine the answer was ‘Yes’.
We can do the conversion on all the VW’s whether you are looking for a motorway cruiser or a turbo-charged monster.
In recent years we have developed a gearbox suitable for the power and rev range of all the Subaru engines.

Who Are We..
Annie’s Truck Shop was born from childhood dreams and fond memories. A Woolwooth’s pick and mix on Sunday Afternoon. Two children me (Annie) and my brother David were left to our own devices to help our dad, the store manager, to stock up.
Now grown up I had an eye out for a sweet opportunity but had never found the right one. On an evening in a tipi in 2014 we were given that opportunity to realise this dream. Friends of ours had a classic1978 Volkswagen pick up for sale and the foundation of an idea for a mobile sweet shop.
We couldn’t resist the opportunity and bought the van.
