:lol:
Lucky you :D They originate from the USA and you sometimes see them for sale on thesamba.com If you want to buy new this is a link to the site: http://www.clarkcraft.net/jsclark/vw/qu ... index.html
I don't know if they are reproductions or the design is original to "Quick Canopy".

It's easy enough to make reproductions but I think I'll just stick to making my own:

CARGO DOOR CANOPY [ With attachment cords and wooden support rails ]


As well as the "BLUE & WHITE" stripe on my van (see photo above) I have sourced these fabric options:

"RED STRIPE"
Image Image

"GREEN STRIPE"
Image Image

"BEIGE STRIPE"
Image Image

"PERIOD LOOK" - Nice woven fabric to suit many van colours 8) Only 2 left.
Image Image

"MTVB" - Mango.Turkis.Velvet.Beige - Lovely printed fabric, limited quantity available :D Made to order only.
Image Image

"CAMOUFLAGE" - Alternative for "Ratty" vans :wink:
Image Image

Cheers, Will

Me too, love it, but it's not right for my van. Mike & Susie have one for their van. I've got another similar fabric but without the blue just Mango, Brown, Beige & Cream. I'll have to make one up and add it to the range :lol:

Here are a few of my green ones, I can get around 200 differnt canvas styles & colours but I don't keep them all on stock , I need to order them. The only one's I have in stock are the normal striped canvas at the bottom of the pics.
If you want to have a go at making your own I will sell by the meter, price's vary.

The original design is Canterbury Pitt - not Devon, but can of course be fitted to any van. Here is my original item fitted to my Devon - (ironically).
Image
There were 2 versions. As per the picture for fixed roof models featuring 2 long straps which pass over the roof and fit to studs in the opposing gutter drains. The elevating roof version has no straps but a row of poppers which attach to the lower edge of the roof canvas.
