Hightop. I think it's a standard custom top, makes the Alphard about two feet higher?

 

Sounds like a hightop. I think that may make it more difficult to find a suitable cover to fit snugly. Most Alphies are standard roofline or have been modified to a poptop.

It's definitely a hightop, looks like this.

 

I didn't realise it was a rare option but can recommend it for family camping - lots of extra storage.

 

This is the first one I have ever seen. Looks great.

Storage room in an Alphie camper can be an issue, especially with the rear conversions.

i got a cover for my 2006 2.4 with a pop top

look on eBay  for ZENTIMEX -uk (8323) cover  it will list all vehicles it  fits by year and cc

it is sent from germany and took about 2weeks but that was due to being out of stock

it is not a perfect fit ()a bit baggy round the screen area) but i don't think you will find one that is.

it comes down to the bottom of the metal on the wheels so only the lowest section of the

tyres show however if no pop top roof it will probably reach the ground.

there is a draw string around the bottom to tighten it up.

i have had my van covered for quite a while now and have taken it off once and the car was dry underneath

so it appears to do what the blurb says  and allows any moisture to evaporate

Hi Martin,

 

Welcome to this Forum.

 

I, too, am looking for a winter cover. I tried this supplier; but mixed news.

 

They seem to offer a 'garage' for the Gen 3 Alphies, but not the previous 2 Generations. What a shame.

I have a late Gen 1 so need to check the similarity between Gen 3 and Gen 1 dimensionally.

But I may get lucky.

 

 

 

 

They do offer windscreen covers for all three generations (at very low cost).

adding to my previous information the sizes of gen 1 and gen 2, are very much the same give or take 25mm.  the gen 3 appears to be approx 100mm longer so zentimex gen 3 covers would fit all models (being 100mm too long this would not show once the drawstring was tightened.

checkout the web site of Autodata as this gives all the dimensions of all the models.

i am more than pleased with the cover and have paid more in the past for smaller and more inferior products

 

good luck
