I want to build a Camper.......need

I plan to purchase a 4x4 truck and convert into a camper. I would appreciate it if anyone can tell me about some good websites which have information about building cabins at the rear.

Hi,

Camper conversions seem to be a popular sport with the owners of 101 Forward Control Landrovers and Unimogs. Search the web for this LR model and you'll find plenty of info. Here's a tip: www.maximog.com

Rgds,

Check out the Turtle V in the vehicles section. It's propably the coolest camper I've seen so far.

The Maximog is cooler that the Turtle truck but I'm guessing the owner won't be having a good day, the first time thieves nick it. Suddenly the desire for a series 3 LR may take over. Equally I'm guessing someone like the Algerian Authorities would have a field day stripping out all the banned electronics before allowing it into the country.

Hi

I met two innovations built vehicles in Africa and they were both superbly built and put together with some very nice design touches.
But I imagine fairly pricey - but if money was not an object.....

Happy travels

Please anybody knows of such DIY campers with as much details as possible, please post it here. I’d like to do more homework on this subject that I know little about…

Check out www.allrad-christ.com for Bremach conversions.
Know the owner of the only UK registered Bremach overland truck. Allrad Christ supplied the truck and Lyndi built the elevating body. It took 9 months for Lyndi to complete the bare body shell, but the finished article is a work of art. Don't ask how much!
