The idea behind the Land Rover Camper is for those that like to get off the beaten track and camp in the wild although it's just as at home on a camp site with electric hook up.
I've been constructing campers for several years now and they are, as ever, very popular. I also enjoy driving and messing around with Land Rovers. One day I thought why not combine the two interests.
There are many companies offering to convert your Land Rover into an 'overlander' or expedition vehicle, but very few that offer to convert it into a 'camper'.
CamperHus Conversion can now offer to convert your Defender for you, either a 5 door 110 county or a 3 door 110 hard top.
The conversion needs the added space in the back of the 110 to accommodate a full length bed and with an elevating roof to give additional height.
The Defender camper conversion has all the usual camper content; fridge, hob, sink, ample storage and a bed measuring 2m by 1.1m. The elevating roof allows you to stand in the rear of the vehicle to dress, cook or anything else you need to do when standing up.
A full length, custom made, roof rack can also be fitted to allow for carrying items at the front and for mounting awnings etc. to the sides and rear.
Ample storage is provided within the vehicle as well as storage accessed from outside for gas/fuel etc.
The furniture includes
a sink unit with 2 cupboards below the sink and a small cupboard at floor level
a tall unit housing the fridge, a tall cupboard, a smaller one above the fridge and another small cupboard at floor level
a rear seat box which contains the 12v fuse box and charger, but also additional storage for tools etc.
a front seat/storage unit (in the 5 door County) this can house a portable toilet.
The camper has all the normal electrics you would expect, 12v lighting and sockets as well as 240v sockets. The electrics include a voltage management system, charger,mains hook up and leisure battery.
There is a 36/40 litre water storage tank fitted which is filled from outside the vehicle. The water system includes a Shurflo pump, water filter and marine fold down tap.
The gas storage locker is designed to accommodate a 4.5Kg gas bottle.
The camper is fully insulated throughout and suitable wall coverings are included. The floor coverings is a non slip safety vinyl flooring available in many different colours. The furniture is constructed from lightweight ply with a hard surface for durability.
There is a choice of finishes available. The example shown used a stripped wood finish called Zebrano with silver edging and aluminium corner profiles.
The elevating roof is not large enough for adults to sleep in, however young children could be accommodated, speak to me if you are interested.
The conversion described above will cost approximately £11,450
There will of course be numerous extras that can be added internally and externally, such as:
100W solar panels and charge controller
Diesel or gas heater
External locker (3 door only)
Additional rear windows (3 door only)
Additional interior lighting
Additional awning lights
Please ask about cost of supply and fitting of the above items.
Not to mention the usual mechanical extras that can be fitted to the base vehicle.
Additional exterior lighting
Change of front grill
New wheels and tyres
Aluminium storage roof box
The list goes on ..............
