I want to build a pop-top camper on the top of my '05 element. I do not want to spend the $3000 or an ecamper and also want to cut a larger hole in the roof in order to stand up in it. Since the chop and a pop-top is done with vans, I am hoping it can be done with an element. Along with this, it would be amazing to install rotating seats for the front.
If anyone has done this or has ideas as to the best way to go about any of these modifications, I would love to know.

How much experience do you have building things?

The eCamper is ~$6500

a $3000 work-around would be a lot of work. It would be worth it if you wanted to do the work, but not if you wanted to save the money. The $3500 extra you'd pay them will always be worth it in resale value alone.

Doing it yourself will educate the **** out of you though (which is hard to place a monetary value on. Higher education would place it at ~$2 a minute, but I think that's a bit inflated. )
