Toyota Hilux, 1.5 cabin. Living unit length 3750 mm (including alcove) and width 1800 mm. The living unit is supported by an aluminium sub-frame, which is attached on springs to the six existing chassis points.
For this project, we used our 30 mm honeycomb panels, which were specially developed by Twiga and are extremely light. Seitz windows (900 x 400 mm) with a 1200 mm (h) by 700 mm (w) door at the rear. A cool-looking hardtop with 3 windows that folds up at the front.
Self-evidently, it has a lightweight interior, including a PVC floor. Two AGM batteries, electrical installation with battery charger and a sufficient amount of solar panels on the roof. 100-litre fresh water tank, water pump and filter. Gas cooker, completely built-in and tested in accordance with the appropriate standards. 2 kW heater. Cool-looking staircase in the rear, nice outside kitchen – entirely spray-painted in the right colour.
By using an aluminium bodywork and lightweight panels, we were able to keep this living unit under 3500 kg in weight, allowing you to take enough luggage with you. The construction + interior + installation weigh no more than 400 kg. And by also opting for an aluminium sub-frame, this living unit can be driven with only a B driver’s licence!
