Land-Rover Dormobile.

Expedition Land Rover, by TeriAnn Wakeman, is a site that focuses on Series Land Rovers, conversions and modifications to Series Land Rovers, Land Rover caravans and Series Land Rover expedition preparation.

As we learned from them, records as to the number of conversions Martin Walter built over the years and of conversion kits shipped to other companies for assembly did not survive the closing of the company.

An unknown number of Series II Land Rover Dormobiles were built.

Expedition Land Rover has seen pictures showing one for door (626) and two, two door versions (625) Series II Land Rover Dormobiles. The best estimate for Land Rover Series IIA Dormobiles is 725 four door (626) versions built plus an unknown number of 2 door versions.

Approximately 104 Series III Land Rover Dormobiles were built, presumably all 626 variants. (data from Phil's record research). About 830 4-door Land Rover Dormobiles were converted at the Martin Walter factory from Spring of 1960 through 1975.

A very rough estimate of total Martin Walter factory Land Rover Dormobile production, for all model II, IIA, and III 2 door (625) and station wagon (626) variants would be about 1000 Land Rover Dormobiles. At least 85% of them were the 626 station wagon variant.
