How can I start my #vanconversion with igus?

Who has ever faced the challenge of accommodating roof hatches and solar panels in the tightest of spaces without one covering the other? With a drylin linear guide, we make the panel moveable! Every project is unique and sometimes needs a unique solution. We provide advice free of charge and always according to the motto "the most cost-effective part that works, is the right one".

The T5 project by Darius

Roof conversion for even more freedom

Darius completely dismantled his T5 himself and used some parts from igus®. A multifunctional bedding box was the centrepiece of the conversion. After the van became a bit too small due to offspring, the roof was cut open and a fixed high roof was retrofitted. In addition to the resulting standing height and additional storage space, two additional sleeping places could be created. To ensure that standing height is maintained, a pull-out bed has been fitted using a very low-profile and lightweight drylin N guide. The stability is assured and thanks to the drylin polymer plain bearings there is no rattling noise even after almost 300,000km.

For all those interested in the pull-out bed and other igus product solutions for bus conversions, we offer  expert advice and free samples.
