Anyone in the Midlands with the Alu-Cab Icarus roof?
I'm looking at getting this conversion done but would love have a look around a vehicle that has already been converted.

If you within 2-3 hours of Stoke On Trent and wouldn't mind showing off your conversion I'd love to have a look and talk about any pros/cons.

Nene Overland in Peterborough do this conversion if you dare go there? Shocked Might be OK just to view. Having said this @expeditonrove on instagram had the conversion done at Nene back in February and were very pleased with the result. James

There is normally one at all the main LR Shows too. I often look around them and dream! Embarassed James

There are other pop tops on the market (see here - https://www.defender2.net/forum/topic82129.html) so keep your options open
I have an X-Vision-X top which I may be able to arrange for you to see if that helps...

But as discussed above - going to a show and meeting the people who have them and not the sellers would be the best thing to do as the sales people have a vested interest in the product

See if you can get in contact with Paul (I think?) at CamperHus Conversions. He’s not too far from you and is constantly doing camper fit-outs to LRs and other vehicles. Charlie

Thank you for the pointers. I did not know about CamperHus Conversions and they are just at Cannock. Heading there with the mountain bike this weekend so I can pop in at the same time.

Good point about the shows too. I would imagine a fair few will be at LRO next month. Perhaps i'll just wait till then and have a good look at them all in one place and speak to the owners directly.

Thank you for the offer! I'd love to talk with you about your experiences with the conversion. Will you be going to the LRO show?

It would be great to meet up there. Current - 110 XS SW

No problem.
Not sure if I’ll get time to go to either the LRO show or Adventure Overland in September, would like to go to at least one of them though!
There’s generally quite a few camping at the shows though so a good opportunity to look round them.
I’ll let you know once we’ve made a decision!

I do have a build thread on here you could look at, might help Thumbs Up 1997 Ex-MOD 110, Pop Top Camper
