The Azalai camper is a specially designed conversion which offers exceptional off-road performance combined with comfortable living and sleeping accommodation for up to five people. Ideally suited to overland expeditions, the Azalai is also a practical every day vehicle. It is capable of exploring the green lanes of Wales, crossing the African desert, keeping up with the traffic on motorways and agile enough to drive around towns.
The Azalai can be based on several vehicles including two Land Rover Defender models. It comprises a 'living pod' vacuum moulded in composite materials which is grafted to the back of new vehicles or older models in good condition. The outer body of the Azalai is moulded as a one-piece shell which is 21mm thick including 15mm of high-density insulation. Similar in construction to refrigerated trucks, this provides a high level of thermal insulation keeping the inside cool in the summer and warm in winter and avoids condensation. The sides of the roof are made from insulated and UV blocking fabric and includes air vents and windows, with integral fly screens, for extra ventilation.
The living pod is lightweight, tough and hard-wearing, the Azalai is built to last. To preserve the stability and agility of the base vehicle, weight is kept as low as possible; extra fuel, fresh and waste water are all housed under the floor and storage lockers and cupboards are below window height. Importantly for all-terrain vehicles, the departure angles are hardly affected. With a limited overhang and only a slight increase in overall length compared to the base vehicle, the off-road ability of the Azalai camper base vehicle is not compromised. There is also plenty of spare load capacity for carrying extra fuel and water.
When based on a Land Rover Defender 130 crew cab model, the Azalai offers a king-size bed for two adults as well as sleeping accommodation for three children. Standard features on all models include a hot water shower, an electric flushing toilet, a fridge with freezer compartment, a gas cooker, a wardrobe and stowage space on the roof. There is a storage locker for recovery equipment, camping gear, tools and accessories and a gas bottle locker for two 2.5kg Camping Gaz bottles. In addition, the rear door is fitted with a three-point lock and the spare wheel is stored in specially designed and secure hatch that can only be unlocked from inside the vehicle. With this specification as standard, occupants have the option of eating, sleeping and washing inside. A wide range of optional features is available and each Azalai conversion is built to the chosen specification of the purchaser. The Azalai fits into a standard container for secure shipping anywhere in the world.
