I had completely forgotten about your “shower power” pump.

I follow most of your threads on here but sometimes can’t remember what and in which thread.

I do use a stick on thermometer on my shower bag.

This was in Land Rover Owner a few issues ago:



Seemed like it could be an improvement on tents with rigid frames, so I searched to find out how easy it is to set up.


Not sure it would be easier to set up than a traditional tent after watching that video, in addition to inflating it there are rigid supports that need to be fitted. Might be more work that a traditional tent?

I wondered if there might be inflatable roof top tents, so I searched and found this: https://gentletent.com/en/gt-roof

This video makes it seem pretty simple to set up, and it looks quicker and easier than the traditional RTT I have:


Another inflatable from the August issue of LRO:

What would you get if you crossed a Defender with an Airstream trailer? Probably something like this one from Duckworth Overland featured in the August issue of Land Rover Owner:





The interior is a woodworker's dream:

What if:



You can find them at DuckworthOverland.com. They haven't finalized the pricing yet, but it's said to be in the 200k GBP range (on a Land Rover). No plans for Jeep versions announced.

Definitely the most interesting vehicle I've seen in a while! I like the interior wood finish and the proportions are right for a defender. I don't get the rear hatch though........Looks like a good ingress for dust and water.
