LAND ROVER DEFENDER 130 4X4 OVERLAND CAMPER, CUSTOM SOLID SIDED ELEVATING ROOF
Sellers Comments -
It’s a 2006 56 reg ( almost an 07) td5 Defender 130 3500kgs chassis
125,000 miles approx ( will go up slightly )
New mot until 12th June 2020 no advisories
Starts runs and drives superb, great on fuel! 2 keys 2 Fobs
Ex power company so has split charge system, Ramsey heavy duty electric winch, heated screen, heated seats, central locking, electric windows, CD player etc
Converted by us this year as a prototype to see what we could achieve with this new fused honeycomb composite panel
This stuff is amazing, extremely light, extremely strong and fully uv and water resistant.. the body is a brand new build, not some chopped about ex ambulance etc and is built entirely from this new type of panel, fully plastic welded and the capped with aluminium where necessary for enhanced looks and durability..
We’ve recently completed a 1000mile round trip to Bad Kissingen in Germany to the abenturer allrad show without fault, never skipped a beat, cruises comfortably at 70mph and is extremely good on fuel, thanks to the newly reconditioned transfer box from Ashcroft transmissions with the new 1:3 gear ratios in. It’s quiet, smooth and extremely capable both on and off road...
The vehicle was heavily restored prior to building the new body, including full rear section of the chassis cleaned and re-painted with upol raptor.. new brakes ( discs, callipers, pads, brake lines the lot ) rear differential overhauled by Ashcroft at the same time as the transfer box, new front swivels, all new oils, and filters, new wheels and tyres x5 with cooper discover stt pro tyres, new interior, new paint, etc etc
chassis never welded and doesn’t need to be, Doors are immaculate as are all body panels, it’s a very clean nice example, underside is almost as new
The vehicle has cost over £35,000 to get to this stage, with a one of a kind custom interior, which contains a large seating, dining area, inside walk in shower cubicle, portaloo type toilet, kitchen, and full king sized bed. Plus heaps of storage and the all important pass through to the drivers cabin.
The unique roof design allows full head height throughout the vehicle when elevate and a nice compact vehicle for traveling when closed, with the benefits of added security, and transportability as well, it’s been designed to fit inside a standard 20ft shipping container.
We’ve decided to sell it as we need to develop new products and work on existing ones, since this has been advertised we've received 4 new orders for this type of conversion, and are speaking to new customers daily about their over-landing requirements.
The door raises manually at current via a neat little hydraulic system, but can be modified to electric if required for an additional fee.
The vehicle does still need it’s hot water and heating system fitting and plumbing in, ( a new webasto diesel heater will be supplied with the vehicle, the spare wheel needs mounting, and the 12v split charge system needs wiring in, this can be done by us for an additional fee if required but just to be clear this work is not currently completed
