I think that crown is pretty. If I had the cash I'd buy it.

i used the original roof but cut in a 4 foot wide deck countersunk into the roof. this gave me many thing one is a flat inside ceiling, it also gave my cubby hole the full length of the bus to run ac duct and electrical in. from the ground you don't see the deck i also put a fold down table and umbrella up on this deck.

This vid shows the inherent sturdiness of Skoolies. Yes there's some damage but the bus bounces right off the loco instead of folding around it or flying apart like lesser vehicles. I would not want to compromise the integrity.
