Brillant Land Rover Camper

10 10 2013

Not a Volkswagen kombi, but what a fantastic camper truck! A Land Rover Defender in full battle gear, with snorkel, winch at the front, heavy duty roof rack with a large roof box, awning from Foxwing (see also here) on the left side, and what looks like slightly larger than standard all-terrain wheels and elevated chassis. Saw it just around the corner here in Berlin. The owner came by and let me take a look inside: Self-built campervan conversion in birch wood multiplex plates in the back, with a kitchen unit with sink and cooker (methylated spirit), a fold up roof with hydraulic lifting mechanism, a rock and roll back bench/bed (actually the same hinge mechanism that I fitted into Taiga Lily). With space for two people to sleep on the folded out rock and roll bench and for another two above, in the folded up roof. Wonderfully executed in every detail. You can see the cover for the back door, done in aluminum, with fold down wooden table and with holders for a thermos can and a Maglite, beautifully cut out of multiplex. What a brilliant car!
