The ladder when not in use, can be stored inside the stowage bag provided with the tent.

Giuseppe Fercodini, CEO, Autohome, said: “Land Rover has worked hand-in-hand with our technicians to design a unique roof tent for the Land Rover Defender. This tent is much more than a campsite accessory: its strength, comfort, versatility and reliability makes it ideal for extreme camping and off-road holidays.

The roof tent works only if your Defender is equipped with the Expedition roof rack and roof rails, which is a standard fitment if you go for the Adventure Pack – one of four option packs available on the mighty SUV. Land Rover currently offers over 170 genuine accessories with the new Defender, which is more than ever offered with any Land Rover vehicle.
