You’ve got the perfect overlanding vehicle, that’s great. You’ll be able to get wherever you want to go. But what about when you get to your destination? Do you have the camping portion figured out yet? If not, you may want to check out GehoCab’s Defender Trailer. The German company can turn your vehicle into a full-service RV.
Whether you’re starting with the new Land Rover Defender, a Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen, a Jeep Wrangler, or the new Ford Bronco, GehoCab can outfit your vehicle with a carbon-shelled camper. They start by cutting away at the vehicle starting at the C-pillar so that they can get to the vehicle’s chassis.
In effect, they’re replacing the vehicle’s trunk area with a residence area. True, there won’t be much floor space in this kind of a setup, but you will still have space for all the amenities you desire, such as a full kitchen, a cassette toilet, a shower, a seating area, and, of course, a sleeping space large enough for two.
GehoCab can also add another sleeping berth above the seating area if you want. GehoCab also adds a 23-gallon freshwater tank and they have an option for solar power. That’s a lot to add to the chassis that wasn’t intended for this kind of use but don’t worry about throwing off your vehicle’s balance. The hard shell camper is extremely lightweight, coming in at just over 1,000 pounds. You can make it even lighter by opting for carbon fibre interior components—for a bit more.
You might have a bit of angst when it comes to the thought of chopping up your new Defender to turn it into an overlanding RV, but if you’re serious about adventuring, then it will be well worth the sacrifice. Of course, in addition to that sacrifice, you’ll have to pay a little under USD$124,000 for the work. But if you’re still looking for the right option, you can get your GehoCab overlanding camper done starting October 1.
