Hi all... A bit tongue in cheek.....
I dont have "before" pictures, It was a trailer, a couple of boards, a roof top tent, a few bibs & bobs I has lying around and an idea cooked up at 02:00 in the morning...

Pretty hard to take a photo of an idea.....

But here are the "after" pictures.... <on my previous Landy a 90 Td5> With ARB rear locker..... Awesome vehicle

According to my son, it's the ugliest "trailer" he's ever set eyes on.....

In the grasslands....
The roof top tent is bolted open... Stay's up, while towing.......Stop, zip up, jump in, sleep...

nutz,

I'm impressed. I saw a factory made rig not sure what brand but it was a safari style rig like a Swiss army knife of a trailer/tent/kitchen rig. Everything in it or on it. Tent on top, pull ladder up nighty nite. Looked into it, but not easy to come by or cheap. 

Some call that boon-docking here. We're a bit spoiled by our 30' air conditioned Airstream. 

Nice setup.

Morning everyone
Thanks ! Was a South of on the worried side to post that.... being tongue-in-cheek !

@ GC in SC: - Favorite Utube channels are about van life... slim potatohead / cheap rv living / vancitylife and so on....
Although I use <as my son said> "butt-ugly" to go static camping, I changed from the 90 Landy <which is too short to sleep inside> to my Disco because I wanted to emulate a cab-over camper for exactly that: - boondocking & stealth camping.... In my introductory post JUST BULL / new "arrival" from South Africa I did a series of posts on the layout of my roving rig.

Here is a pic I posted there...: - Stealth / Boondocking in the Southern Drakensberg - Eastern Cape mountains... Sunrise & hot chockolate.....
TTT boondocking re sized DSCN2552.jpg 

@ Ausin: - One thing about this Tiddley piece of real estate called South Africa..... Bitterly cold is 12 Deg C.... So take your pic 😃
Cold camping's at 12 Deg C Hot camping can be at 40 Deg C Also depends where you are Cape & the Eastern Cape are cool in June July, and the pic below shows Tiffendale, the only ski resort in South Africa (on the South Eastern Lesotho - SA border in December...


I kid you not.... That down there is a Ski resort 😂... For them Scot's here, the bigger lake is called "Loch-Ness"....DSCN2546.jpg 

Getting there.....
Now that's an entirely different kettle of fish altogether

@Dego@ Steve P: - Comfortable it is.... I use it for static, remote, OTG <off the grid> camping... Here in the 15 - 20 day adventure, Once I've set camp it's really a substantial pitch 

I have 3 layers of waterproof canvas above me <the 5m x5m army tent; the fly-sheet for the camper and the roof-top-tent.... and I'm not sleeping on the ground. I'm not fussed about a groundsheet, everything's off the ground, what's on the grond is in waterproof bags and it don't matter anyhow.... Let the water come & go....

Don't get bettern this...20Km from the next fella

Scruffy... My Chief in charge of security..... 😃

I stripped off all the straps & hooks off the canvas sides of the tent and used them to make sides for the tent out of 80% shadenet.... much cooler, and like I said I'm not fussed about a bit of wet if the rain comes..... And it does.... See next pic....
Here it was in the 35 - 40 Deg C range so I just dropped the sides all the way to the ground....
That 5 x 5 roof.... I put that up on my own.... Easy-peasy

3 day's on the trot of this....... See how the wind pushes the water's edge so close to my pitch...... Aaaaaaa........ a good book, left-over-supper, a warm dry bed, and a bottle to pee in.... what else could a fella want....

I really like that canvas caravan! I'd be happy with something like that myself, and the way you set it up with everything else makes for quite the nice camp setup.
"What else could a fella want?", you say...I'd say "Nothing, you thought of it all..."
