Well what a strange time we are all experiencing at the moment, we closed for 6 weeks, in accordance with Government Guidelines, but can confirm we will be opening again on Tuesday 5th May 2020, as all of our suppliers have returned to work albeit with reduced staffing.
We have now set in place Covid 19 Health and Safety Procedures and are therefore implementing these and are happy to be working. We are abiding by the 2 metre social distancing rules and videos are now available to show you how to work your pop top / heaters / electric’s / beds etc.
Our 2020 LWB Show Van has unfortunately stood still since we purchased it, as all of our shows with the exception of Quex Park have cancelled. We are presuming Quex will also be cancelled, but continue to wait for confirmation.
We have enjoyed the many phone calls we have received from customers asking for advice on various projects they have been undertaking during the lockdown period. Lots of FaceTime video calls, offering guidance on how to undertake the works correctly.
We will have a LWB, T5.1 being delivered to us next week for full conversion which will have the beautiful Classic Conversion Package, including pop top, kitchen unit, full appliance package, all electrical works and 3/4 R&R bed – this will be for sale as soon as the conversion is complete, Contact Us for any more information about the sale of this van. (Progress photo’s will be available on line and our facebook / instagram page too).
We will also be fully converting a beautiful Ford Transit Custom, again with a very classic design, including WestDubs pop top and all the added extra’s.
We have already a week of window fitting on our first week back to work, if you are looking to have your van side widows / rear quarter / tailgate or barn door installed, give us a call and we will be able to offer pricing.
During the lockdown period, we have had the opportunity of speaking with lots of different companies and obtaining pricing for the ever popular products which we did not stock prior to lockdown. I can confirm, we are now able to order van screens, pop top insulation covers and lots more. Give us a call if you would like to design your own or order from stock.
I have left the Dub Hut Pop Top Maintenance Advice, as listed below, as we have had lots of customers asking how best to maintain their pop tops on their annual spring checks.
Take Care everyone and Stay Safe and we look forward to hearing from you all soon.
From The Dub Hut Team – Kent’s One Stop Van Conversion Centre
The Dub Hut – Pop Top Maintenance Advice:
You can clean the Canvas of your pop top with Warm Soapy Water.
Always apply the Elasticated Straps to keep the canvas away from the Scissor Hinges.
Always apply even pressure when pulling the roof down and ensure you have adequate tension when the roof is in the down position.
We would advise annually treating the seams with Fabsil sealer.
Lightly oil the scissor hinges annually and check tightness of all fittings for any movement.
Try to avoid knocking the rubber strip at the front when washing your pop top as this may displace it.
If you need any further information / guidance on your pop top maintenance, please give us a call 01233 733264.
