Sell Your House, Live in this Land Rover Camper

Picture your dream home. Does a Land Rover come to mind? While the thought of living in a confined space gives many a case of claustrophobia, the benefits of paring back property size can outweigh the downfalls for some. Even a major league baseball player chooses to live in a camper van.  If the home-on-wheels idea does strike you as a winner, you'd be hard pressed to find a more rugged or stately abode than a Land Rover Series IIA off-roader. This 1968 Series IIA combines a frame-off restoration, a coveted 'Safari Roof', and of course, a roof rack and tent. It's up for sale on eBay, and we'd assume it beats living in a van down by the river. RELATED: Learn more about the original Land Rover Series I The Series IIA wasn't the first Land Rover to take that iconic shape, but amongst many LR camps, its simple construction and hardy engineering tweaks put it up with the all-time greats in the off-road world. The IIA originated in 1961 when Land Rover upped the size of its diesel engine from 2.0-liters to 2.25. While the Rover certainly wasn't a speed demon by any means, its boost to 62 horsepower did make it more livable for everyday driving. This nicely kept tan Series IIA packs the ubiquitous 2.25-liter gasoline engine instead, good for around 70 horsepower, which should be enough to tote all the ancillaries it has to offer. Up top, the Land Rover packs the popular air-circulating 'Safari Top' as well as a roof rack, tent, and rear ladder. Pull the top off to reveal four jump seats in the rear. Perhaps that area isn't big enough for Thanksgiving dinner, but we'd like to see you give it a try.
