Ford Bronco And Land Rover Defender Getting Carbon Fiber RV Conversion

Are you so excited about the new Ford Bronco or Land Rover Defender that you want to get one and never leave it? Well, you are going to be able to live in the new SUVs thanks to a motorhome conversion being developed by the German company GehoCab.

The company’s Fiete motorhome can attach to vehicles such as the Ford Bronco, Jeep Wrangler, Land Rover Defender, and Mercedes-Benz G-Class. Installation involves dismantling the rear part of the vehicle and bolting this part directly on the frame. It has a carbon fiber shell which keeps the weight of the motorhome at just 1014 pounds (460 kilograms).

Indoors, the Fiete is 12.96 feet (3.95 meters) long by 5.91 feet (1.8 meters) wide and offers 6.40 feet (1.95 meters) of standing height. In this small footprint, GehoCab manages to pack a toilet, shower and kitchen into space. There is sleeping space for two people. A 100 amp hour battery and solar panel keep power off the grid.

There are options available to give the small RV even more convenience. Buyers can add items like an induction cooktop and a larger solar system. It is also possible to enlarge the sleeping area by creating a space to rest on the bench.

GehoCab plans to start taking orders for the Fiete on October 1, 2020. Prices for the campervan start at € 104,500 ($ 123,465 at current exchange rates), plus the cost of the donor’s vehicle.

If you need more space, GehoCab is also working on the larger Findus motorhome that fits vehicles like the Jeep Gladiator. It has larger water tanks, larger solar cells, and sleeping space for up to four people. Orders for this model will also open on October 1 for an asking price of € 134,850 ($ 159,500).
