    Default D3/D4 Camping Trailer??

    Just having a brain fart while i should be working.
    There are many examples of Defenders turned into trailers. I am just wondering if it would be viable to make a D3/D4 trailer. Would only have to change the rear lights.
    If you cut the body somewhere between the doors. Loosing the sunroof.

    That should make a nice base for a camping trailer.

    Please share your thoughts.
    Thanks

    It might be the only trailer that will go into limp mode.

    with all the diesels written off with snapped cranks I recon it will be very easy to find a Chawton White one to match my V8 , the problem is with a Defender all you need is some Alu plate and a pop-riveter, that D3 construction might be more challenging

    What if you take the body off the chassis and put that on a trailer frame?
