Wanted: lift mechanism for Compact II roof

Looking for original scissor lift parts for the pop-up roof in a Hunter Compact II. Total lift is about 13.5" and mounts are 39.25" apart. Any suggestions gladly received.

May be similar to Trailswest Campster

The pop top on my Campster is similar. I read somewhere recently that the 1970s VW van pop-top was made by the same company.

Dub-Box is making trailers that look like VW vans. They have pop-tops so may have parts...

Hi John,

Elizabeth has an interesting idea about VW tops. A few months ago I was trying to research whether there is a relationship between Hunter campers and the Dodge Travco Family Wagon. In this link, you can see that the pop top seems to have some similarities.

And also, "family wagon" is a name that has been used on a Hunter Compact II look-alike.
