With the Icarus roof conversion from Alu-Cab from South Africa a Land Rover Defender can be easily transformed into the ultimate motorhome. In it you will not only find space to sleep, but also to stand! Of course, your new camper also offers enough space for at least one other person, since the sleeping area is designed for 2 people. With its two layers, the 70 mm thick mattress ensures optimal sleeping comfort.
Three openings equipped with mosquito nets offer a good view of the outside area and keep unwanted insects away. The rear entrance is covered with a shading and rain-proof canopy to be prepared for various weather conditions. At night, the LED reading lamps and lights provide sufficient brightness so that nothing stands in the way of a pleasant stay in the roof tent!
The new and together with Genesis Import for the The version of the lifting roof developed to meet the requirements of the European market is made of 2 mm thick aluminum and is based on the design language of the original roof. Integrated tubular struts provide additional stability and the C-rails on the roof make it very easy to mount accessories. The quilted headliner is equipped with insulating foam. From the 2019 season, the Icarus will also be made with the two-layer 400g/mm Riplock tent fabric that is used in the other Alu-Cab tents. Thanks to the three-layer tent fabric with a polyurethane membrane and stretch function, the tent does not flap in the wind and is opaque and waterproof. The roof conversion can be opened in a few seconds using the gas pressure springs. A circumferential elastic band makes it easier to close.
Only the original roof of the Land Rover Defender has to be unscrewed and removed for assembly. Then the Icarus roof conversion is put on and screwed on. This means that you can switch back to the original roof and the lifting roof at any time be installed on another Defender.
The roof conversion comes with all the necessary brackets for mounting between the Defender and the lifting roof.
The pop-up roof is available in black and Defender white as standard. The 270 degree awning can only be mounted on the left of the Defender (corresponding brackets available Article: AC-A-AWN-BKT-RC-DE-L ).
Thanks to the rain gutter, existing roof racks can also be mounted on the Icarus roof conversion.
The roof conversion is also available for the legendary bush taxi, the Toyota HZJ78 / GRJ78, in a version comparable to the Icarus.
