I take my camera everywhere. Whereas I have a large and heavy camera bag, the Camel Trophy have had a whole Landrover Defender 110 for their Film Unit. Since it is called "Film Unit 3", I suspect they may have had at least 3 Film Units! After a theft in the middle of the jungle, the Landrover had window grills added to every window for the following year.
Work Shop Unit
Again, I know this is a Work Shop Unit because of the sticker! You can also tell because of the large hatch on one side.
This Camel Trophy 200 tdi Defender 110 does not say Work Shop Unit on the side, but I think it is because it is a hard top with only 3 doors. It does however have a roll up hatch on the side. It was a support vehicle for the 1994 Camel Trophy adventure in Argentina, Paraguay and Chile.
The Landrover Discovery was used in the Camel Trophy from 1990 onwards where they used 3 dr 200 tdi Discoveries. From 1991 onwards they used 5 door Discoverys. Trevor Smith and Karen McDonald crewed the 300tdi 5dr Discovery in Mongolia in 1997.
Defender 110 Hi-Cap Pick-Ups
I don't know anything about these Landrover Defender 110 Hi-Cap pick-ups except one of them is owned by Tim. I should ask him about its history.
The Landrover Defender 110 Camel Trophy vehicles shown below are the most similar to my support vehicle. Remember, One Life, Live It!
I have also got some photographs of some Camel Trophy Land Rovers in Action.
