Leafers Overland

Old Skool  Series Campers – factory conversions by Carawagon and Dormobile, and campers built to the owners spec. Designed to go round the block or round the world – the supermarket or the Sahara, the school run or The Silk Road. Come and have a chat and a brew, between us we’ve got some fanciful tales to tell…like the last time JohnH was in Timbuktu….

Land Rover S2A Carawagon

TOL – The Old Lady…- the ‘Lady Sopwith-Pilkington’ round the world barn find – reunited with its third owner for the second time, now with a revived engine and gearbox plus new brakes all round and an elevating roof built to last 

Land Rover 2a Dormobile 2.6L Station Wagon

‘Barney’ was abandoned for 14 years, until the trees growing through her threatened to destroy her completely. Rebuilt over 2 years, she has since travel extensively through Europe, Corsica and Morocco

Land Rover S3 LWB Hardtop

Plenty of room for all the camping gear in this 109…plus the occasional greyhound or two

Land Rover Series 2A LWB Hardtop 

First registered in May 1964 and with two owners from new it was purchased by my father in 1974…At the time it was fitted with a 2.2BMC diesel engine which was a popular conversion in the 70s. Reliable but a bad starter, the engine was underpowered and slow. The original chassis was in a poor state of repair and had to be replaced after 6 months although it was barely 10 years old. That second chassis has now been replaced with a galvanised one along with a galvanised bulkhead and front panel. The BMC2.2 engine has been replaced with a Discovery 200Tdi and an Ashcroft hi-ratio transfer box conversion fitted which returns around 35mpg……Fitted out as an occasional camper, the bed can be removed to retain use of the cargo area. In the finishing stages of a 12 month restoration after being stood for 20 years, just some minor work has to be completed…Only 3000 miles covered since rebuild. If any questions, please ask at my office, at the back of the Land Rover

Land Rover Series 2a SWB

Ex-Military 66EK90 First used/registered in 1963/4 Army FFR usage and no distinctions in any way sadly. Chassis No:24113283B – Full canvas tilt/ Colour Light Stone Gloss. Petrol 2.25 5 bearing block, Turner Engineering Stage 3 head. Webber carb. Ashcroft transmission ‘Hi-Ratio’ Gearbox, Stainless Steel replica Fuel tank, parabolics etc. We have owned it since 1995 when it was in need of lots of TLC – a little bit of chassis welding, plenty of fixing! – used regularly along with ongoing repairs etc – replacement block due to the original 3 bearing engine throwing a piston through the side of the block. Later 5 bearing ex-military fitted. Finally failed an MOT in 2006 with major Chassis work required. It stood idle for about 6 years – connected new battery, tipped a bit of fuel down the carb – started second time. Clutch was freed up and it sort of drove!…2012-2014 Complete rebuild with New Galvanised Chassis, Refurbed and Galvanised Bulkhead and Radiator Panel., new brake lines, master and slave cylunders etc, fully rewired with ‘Fuses and Relays’. Rear custom racking and cage through the canvas tilt for a Roof-rack. It has been rebuilt for our needs and purposes – a comfortable ride with plenty of usb outlets, sound deadening for normal-ish conversation and maximising sensible storage within the confines of a small vehicle just in time for its 50th
Anniversary Morocco Adventure – always an ongoing project to ensure it stays ‘fit for purpose’, we’re just happy that it gets us where we want to go
