Land Rover 127/130 Ambulance Camper

1988 Land Rover Ambulance ex-RAF, Marshall-bodied 127 Ambulance with 3.5 Litre V8 engine. It's done 94,000 miles (72,000 by us since de-mob 7 years ago), regularly serviced, oil-changes, fluids, etc. Has dual-fuel LPG conversion (original 80 litre petrol tank still in place) and camper conversion in the rear (stove, sink, cupboards, pull-out bed, etc) Kitted out as a camper van with a seat that turns into a double bed, 2 x wardrobes, various cupboards, sink & gas rings x 2. I have included pictures pre fit-out so you can see position of LPG etc.

Fantastic for a weekend camper, expedition vehicle, surf bus, etc. As an ex-RAF vehicle, it only did 22,000 miles in service and suffered none of the abuse of the ex-army ones. In the 7 years since release, we’ve camped in her all over England, Wales & Scotland, been to Spain and dozens of festivals. After much heartache I’ve decided to sell her purely to upgrade to a newer Wolf-spec model. Always been properly maintained, oil changes every 3,000 miles, etc. Can be viewed in Somerset or London & possibly elsewhere with a bit of notice as with the improving weather, we're likely to be out camping in her at weekends. e-mail me for photos

Good Stuff

Bad Stuff

Looking for £8,000 ONO

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.
