Well some of you may know us from my other thread, (prepping the camel trophy for around the world..) while the modifications that were performed on that truck worked awesome while we lived in it for nearly a year, the limitations of what could be installed on the truck without damaging originality on the truck provided some challenges, that combined with the growing value of the camel truck and the old girl is getting a bit delicate.... So I have decided to completely kit out a defender 130 for the rest of the trip.. So I purchased a 2006 defender 130 , the last of the td5 motor. It is an ex utility works truck so it has the box on the rear. We found that in very cold weather or snow and rain that it was a pain to put the roof top tent up or down and there was nowhere to stay in bad weather.. So this time I am going to do a pop top roof utilizing something like a hard shell roof tent (think autohome/maggiolina) with access through the floor. This way when bad weather hits we can have the roof top tent popped up and be able to stand inside the box, naturally we will want to keep cooking to a minimum inside due to food smells but shouldn't be too much of a compromise. The reason for the autohome pop top tent is that you can access it from outside as well and it has windows on all sides. I will be using a lot of the ideas from the 110 but some will be improved and some will be changed completely. This truck will be ready to roll in any weather from the Sahara to Siberia..
