Extraordinary RV fuses Land Rover 4x4 toughness with Airstream style

•, By C.C. Weiss

The resulting "Aerover" mini-RV, then, is something of an anomaly, a gritty, go-anywhere 4x4 complete with a tall, tree branch-snapping bulging zeppelin of an alcove motorhome shining brightly on its back. It's an RV that demands to be seen, even when voyaging to places where there's no one to see it.

A commonality we've noticed among both professional and amateur overland and off-road builders: no matter how perfect and amazing their final design is to the outside world, it never seems to quite scratch that innovator itch. If anything, it only irritates the itch, pushing them to begin conceptualizing their next creation well before finishing the current one.

That seems the case for Duckworth Overland founder Thomas Duckworth. While completing and traveling in the Lorry Life , a shed-based tiny home secured atop a retired Bedford MJ army truck, Duckworth became hooked on the experience of actualizing his imaginings into real-life off-grid adventure vehicles and experiences.
