    p38 ute "strange rover"

    I've been reading up on the D1 twin turbo ute conversion on here and I thought to myself: someone must have done that to a P38, right?

    Well, not quite but close enough:

    What's next? A trayback camper?

    As crazy as it sounds, a dual cab version on a stretched chassis might even look good if it comes close to looking like this!

    It looks poorly proportioned.

    Can probably open those doors and store stuff under the tray...

    It looks like half a convertable job indeed. (yes I have found pics of those along the way as well) The reason I was looking into this is that I am beginning to realize that a P38 is small-ish on the inside for long overland travel, certainly since rooftop tent sleeping will not be possible or even desireable everywhere I go. I have been looking at those pop-top roofs for defenders, troopy's and G's but that is hard to make work I think or one of those camper conversions that are often done on traybacks (or chopped up 80's, defenders and so on).

    I came across 1 single example of a bloke who had a go at it, and also wanted people to believe it's a L322

    Not the prettiest job but food for thought!

    Don't bother with a pop top roof. Get a shippshape rooftop tent or fibreglass pod type if you like comfort. Can move them to a new vehicle when you need.

    The current trend of folding roof top tents are ****e if you ask me. A folded thin mattress is never going to come close to a full length jobbie.
    Current: 2000 Td5 D2 and 2002 TTR250
