Alu-Cab Icarus Roof Conversion for Land Rover Defender 110


We can’t think of a more capable single component overland solution. The conversion is available in kit form and can be shipped to any corner of the globe. The job takes about 1-2 days to complete, and once done, you’ll then have access (via an internal roof opening) to your tent, your clothes, your cupboards and your kitchen – all in one supremely capable and compact package.


It’s also worth noting that the Icarus conversion is non-permanent, so should you wish to move the kit to another Defender, or simply restore your vehicle to its original state, you have that option, too.


The roof conversion does away with having to climb up and down ladders, and also frees up packing space where you now have the option of mounting a full-size roof-rack. Bear in mind, however, that packing heavy items on top of your vehicle’s roof will affect how easy it is to open, so some experimenting will be needed to determine what works for you.

The lifting roof takes seconds to unlatch and open, and thanks to the flip-up bed and mattress, you not only have access to your clothing and cupboards, you also get to stand upright while changing. Lastly, the rooftop camper tent can be closed with most of your bedding inside, which means you never have to deal with stuffing away a sleeping bag, and you don’t have to find packing space for your duvet and pillows. Provided your bedding is relatively neat and flat, it’s all stored up top and is just a latch-and-flip away.
