Hi dub people,
I’m taking my first steps into the world of getting myself a T5 for family adventures so at this point I’m a complete virgin.
I’ve decided 100% on getting a van with a pop top but I’m intrigued by the amount of space at the lower end of the roof. I’ve seen pop tops which are hinged but otherwise are fixed to the actual roof level of the van (presumably almost everybody will use this as the ‘foot end’)
Additionally I’ve also seen pop tops where the ‘foot end’ isn’t hinged but infact has a small scissor mechanism to raise it that little bit further in the air.

Is the scissor mechanism more desirable than the hinged version because of the extra space or does it not really make too much difference inside? Does anybody have any real world experience comparing them side by side?
