VEHICLESANDGEAR

When driving a Defender, its thirst for adventure will soon spread and you will love the feeling of freedom and excitement of discovering what’s around the next corner.

Renting a fully equipped LandyCamper you will get:

 

  • A highly maintained classic Land Rover Defender 90 (2000) for two people

  • All vehicles have a 5 gear manual transmission and a 2.5-litre TD5 engine and high profile all-terrain tyres 

  • While Land Rover has always kept the interior concept of the Defender simple and utilitarian with hardly any switches or electronics, our vehicles come with an upgraded, customised cockpit including an Android Auto / Apple CarPlay based infotainment system for more comfort and safety while driving

  • Our Landys have great visibility thanks to the high driving position and unobstructed rear and side windows for easier and safer driving and manoeuvring

  • A customised boot of the vehicle fits a smart storage system that grants easy access to and safe, space-saving stowing of the camping equipment and luggage

  • A small inside lounge in the rear (only to be used when vehicle is stationary) for some more privacy when relaxing or when the weather is really letting you down

  • Not only a rooftent and awning, but state of the art, innovative equipment for a sustainable experience that’s fully included in the rental charge, like a solar panel, battery generator and fridge

  • Convenient pick-up and drop off location just north of London, close to Stansted Airport

We will give you a thorough introduction to the vehicle, its driving behaviour and its equipment upon pick-up.

OURLANDYS

Traveling Companion, n., / kəm-ˈpan-yən /, a capable Land Rover Defender that takes you anywhere, carries all your stuff and has a bed ready for you

The Land Rover Defender: Some call it the most timeless, iconic and beloved vehicle ever made, for Ben Fogle it’s “as quintessentially British as a plate of fish and chips” and for us it simply is the perfect travel buddy. Its unique simplicity, capability and versatility make it a joy to drive off the beaten track, on winding country roads and rougher surfaces. 

 

Since its production originally started in 1948, the original Series Land Rover has always been a trail-blazer for every SUV that has come along. But did Land Rover’s chief engineer sketch his first original design into the red sand on an Anglesey beach in 1947? Is it true that, due to its use for colonial overland expeditions, a boxy Land Rover is, for more than half the world's population, the first vehicle that ever saw? And what is it about that notorious ‘Defender wave’ amongst Landy drivers?

Feel free to kick back in your Defender’s lounge and find out more about the unique stories that evolve around the “world's favourite car”: all our Landies come with a little library to sweeten your travels, including Ben Fogle's must read ‘The Story of the Car that conquered the world’. But be careful: the passion is contagious and you will soon find yourself secretly checking out every Defender you see wishing you could take it out for a drive!

WAFFLE

 Defender 90 for two people

 

Our classic silver Defender 90, manufactured in 2000, is the perfect companion for any solo adventurer or up to two people travelling together. Waffle is sturdy and rugged, but easy to drive and manouvre thanks to the shorter wheelbase. The rooftent comfortably fits two people while there is enough space in the converted back to have dinner inside if the weather lets you down.

YELLOW

COMING

SOON!

Defender 110 for up to five people

 

Yellow (please, you try to find a girls name beginning with Y!) is our classic blue Defender 110 from 2001. Highly original inside and out, her looks are as majestic as she is capable tackling any terrain. Depending on the size of your group, Yellow can be fitted with either one or two rooftents, while offering loads of space for equipment and luggage in the converted back.

OURROOFTENTS

When you get off the beaten track a little comfort (and water resistance) can make all the difference. That’s why we chose our well engineered, high-quality ARB Simpson III rooftents. The origins of the company go back to the 1970s, when founder Tony roadtripped through Australia in his Series 1 Land Rover, battling endless corrugated roads, extreme temperatures and heavy loads. Tony’s expertise and sense for innovation was soon regularly called upon and ARB, now Australia’s largest manufacturer and distributor of 4x4 accessories, was born.

 

Our English roads and climate (although wetter) might be a bit easier to tackle, but that does not mean we are less discerning. That’s why our rooftent’s features include:

 

  • Unfolds easily: the rooftop tent provides spacious sleeping quarters off the ground within minutes

  • Strong, rigid and water resistant: made from high-quality poly/cotton fabric, Oxford polyester flysheet and aluminum, the tent will keep you warm, safe and dry

 

  • Comfy mattress: a high-density 2.5 inch foam mattress that ensures you’ll sleep soundly - no blowing up of an airbed needed

  • All bedding provided: duvets and pillows can remain inside the tent during the journey, freeing up vital storage space and allowing the tent to be quickly packed away

  • Practical annex: a removable zip on annex comes with our roof tent and provides added space for privacy and protection from the elements

  • Insect and dirt free: the tent comes with insect screened windows and doors as well as elevated shoe pockets for footwear storage within reach

Each of our Landys also comes with the Rhino Rack 270° Batwing Awning. The heavy-duty self-standing retractable awning is conveniently attached to the side of the vehicle for immediate use and shelter wherever you set up camp – braving hot summer days or rainy hours.
