We’re ready for adventure when you are!

From a two-day micro-adventure in The Lake District to two weeks exploring the Scottish Highlands, we can take you above and beyond.

Few vehicles deliver the spirit of freedom and adventure like the iconic Land Rover Defender and our expedition-equipped vehicles come with roof tents, awning, fridge, stove, table and chairs, utensils and more. We provide everything you need and nothing you don’t.

We are located in Milton Keynes, the city in the country, and easily accessible via major routes including the M1 (J13 and J14) and are minutes from Central Milton Keynes railway station (the London­-Euston-Birmingham main line). Luton, Stansted and Heathrow Airports are all within easy reach.

Our Vehicles

 

Our vehicles are the three door Defender 90 Station Wagon (for two people) and the five door Defender 110 Utility (for up to five). They are high-spec XS models with rugged 2.2 Turbo Diesel engines, heated front seats, air-con and heated windscreen.
Not driven a Defender before? It’s an experience you’ll never forget and may require a certain adjustment in your driving style! But you’ll quickly learn to deal with their quirks and they’ll soon put a smile on your face, particularly when the going gets tough. With high and low gear ratios and differential lock, nothing can beat them in the rough stuff.

Our vehicles come fully equipped and camp-ready and you can hire our brilliant Prairie Tent from Dave Ellis Tents of Colorado (pictured) if you need more sleeping space than the two-person roof tents. Our range of add-ons include a motorcycle trailer, bike rack, awning sides and portable toilet.

The ability to hang a right at any byway, gravel road or unnamed peak defines adventure and few vehicles deliver the spirit of freedom and adventure like a Land Rover Defender.
Our Defenders are comprehensively equipped, including top of the range Stealth roof tents from South African company Eezi Awn, Big Country drawer units, National Luna fridges, and Partner Steel stoves from the USA. And pretty much everything else – apart from bedding and food – that you need to go on your own adventure.

Pick up your vehicle from us (we are located minutes off J13 of the M1) or let us deliver a vehicle to your choice of location. If you are flying to the UK we can deliver/collect a vehicle to/from most UK airports. Extra charges apply (contact us to discuss). See our Pick up and Return information.

Wrap-around awning Stealth Roof Tent Camp Lights LED Upgrades LED Lazer Bar Roof Ladder Corner Bumperettes Under the Bonnet In the Cab Drawer System Dual Battery System

Wrap-around awning

Create a base camp in 90 seconds by deploying a Bat 270 awning that wraps around the vehicle. Adjustable support legs ensure you can set-up on the most uneven of ground.

Add our optional awning sides to create an amazing large enclosed space around your vehicle.

Stealth Roof Tent

Sleep sound off the ground in a top of the range roof tent with 3” mattress, interior light, USB charger and mesh screen windows. An aerodynamic aluminium shell reduces wind noise, protects you from the elements and allows bedding to be stored inside whilst driving. We supply mattress protector and top sheet. Fast and simple to deploy and takedown.

Camp Lights

No need to fumble to light up camp as our vehicles have permanent external camp lights. Low heat LEDS with yellow anti glare lenses attract fewer bugs and 3 power levels allow you to select the right amount of light.

LED Upgrades

Our vehicles have TruckLite LED light upgrades all round, with the headlights producing a pure white light that offers hugely improved road and verge coverage. Polycarbonate lenses improve protection against impact from road debris.

LED Lazer Bar

See more, go safer. Finding your perfect camping spot at night is easy with a roof mounted Lazer ST6 Evolution LED light bar that will light up your world. Unbreakable lenses protect against debris. Operated off a dash mounted switch.

Roof Ladder

A rear ladder provides a secure and safe handhold and foothold when opening or closing the roof tent. Please note the roof tent itself is accessed by its own ladder stored under the roof rack.

Corner Bumperettes

Heavy duty bumperettes in 6mm steel provide a secure and safe foothold when opening or closing the roof tent and improve vehicle protection at the rear.

Under the Bonnet

With a rugged and vocal 2.2 litre turbo diesel engine our vehicles have plenty of grunty low-down torque, six-speed manual transmission (high and low range) and a heavy-duty four-wheel drive system.

In the Cab

Tracing its roots back to the original 1948 Land Rover concept our Defenders are a different experience to modern cars. But with air-con, heated windscreen, heated front seats, and electric front windows you’ll be warm and cosy in winter and cool in summer.

Drawer System

A full length heavy duty drawer that organises and securely contains kit and equipment including kitchen utensils, cutlery, crockery, glasses, lashing straps, safety gear, First Aid kit, kettle and mini stove (a cooking stove is supplied also). The drawer creates a level surface across the full rear bay, with multiple lashing points.

Dual Battery System

Going off grid for days at a time is no problem as our vehicles are equipped with National Luna’s compact, fully-automated split-isolator power pack that piggy-backs off the vehicle’s main battery. Self contained, safe and simple.
