Alu-cab Icarus Roof Conversion for Defender 110

The Defender 110 roof conversion aka Icarus, has to be the ultimate 2-sleeper overland solution. Not only does it offer a sleeper compartment which is easy to erect and access, it also offers unparalleled internal living space.

After climbing out the vehicle to flip the roof up – a process which takes just seconds – you can access the sleeper compartment from inside the vehicle. Which is great news if you’re overnighting in lion country! A flip-up panel in the sleeper compartment allows you to stand up in the vehicle – so no more getting dressed and undressed while bent over double. What’s more, the roof can be closed with your bedding in place.

This conversion offers a marginal increase in roof height, this means less stress about parking and maneuvering your vehicle. The Hercules conversion is available in kit form so we can ship it to all four corners of the earth; installation takes two days at a competent fitment centre.
