This is a brilliant innovation to the current Tata Crew Cab platform.

The weight distribution must have been quiet a challenge and considering they have travelled the distances over various terrain, I guess they have sorted it quiet well.

The interiors are utilitarian, just like how's its to be. A lot of gear in the last picture seems imported.

To sum it up... impressive.

Very well executed.

The platform used for such kind of mods i not the Tata 4x4. Would have been a wonder if a Winger platform was used, and the results would have been fantastic.

Nevertheless, a neat job and congratulations to the guy who did this.

Worldwide overlanding is very popular, and has several advantages over other forms of travel / tourism. Glad to see that it is picking up steam in India too somewhat. Hopefully this will encourage owners of existing hotels / motels to invest in camping grounds and related facilities

For some reason, the platform does not seem right. By using the TATA 4x4, they seem to have too little space for the actual "camp" area.

Tempo Travellers have been used for ages for this application - quite a lot of business people here in Kerala have their own "Home on Wheels" - everything from a proper bedroom to a Toilet is installed in these vehicles.

Definitely on my must-have list. It's practical to have one of these when you are a family of 4 and love the outdoors.

Feels great to see a camper designed and manufactured in India.. Just wondering if the modifications to this extent are also registered with the RTO? And if yes would the manufacturer be taking care of this
