Most thomas raises look aesthetically less appealing due to folks not planning for the geometry of the bus. From the top rub rail it slopes in 6 degrees. To look really good and have no bowing or crinkles you're gonna want to raise it below the window line.
Odd that probably 9 out of 10 folks who want a roof raise buy a Thomas, but it seems that way.
Folks do it, but it takes more planning and finesse to make it look right.
