Land Rover Owner international magazine, May 2022 issue

LRO magazine May 2022

by Land Rover Owner |


Starring on our cover this month is an awesome 300Tdi Defender 90, transformed into an off-road camper. Diff lockers, variable vane turbo, remote reservoir dampers, roof tent, interior storage… it’s a smart and well thought-out design. Learn about what went into it, with our six-page feature.

And in Part 15 of the LRO Adventure Trail, our tour of UK greenlanes continues with Brechfa Forest in Wales. Follow our guide to the hills and forests that you can drive too.
