FabHabs' Philosophy

At Fab Habs we believe expedition trucks are for self-sufficient, independent people. It takes a special kind of person to take on an overlanding truck build.

We know from experience these are huge projects with surprisingly little technical support available for those who are looking for a fully custom truck. We want to empower people by providing proper engineering skills where they are needed most.

 

Whether you are planning a round the world trip and don't fancy sleeping in a roof-tent every night, want to be more nomadic, or just want to down-size, we provide support throughout the mammoth process of turning a dream into a dwelling.

Our clients are intrepid individuals who are embarking on a custom truck build but lack the technical skills or the time to take on the engineering side of things.

About me

Mechanical engineer by trade and overlander at heart I spend most of my free time researching best practices and optimal solutions for designing expeditions trucks.

 

I set up Fab Habs for those who, like me, want a fully custom-truck but lack the expertise, or time, to take on the full build process from design to delivery. I have now been supporting clients for 3 years from base truck selection to furniture design and haven't looked back.

 

Whether I end up taking a project on or not I always enjoy having a chat with like minded-people and hearing about the trucks they will one day roam around in. So get in touch, even if for a quick question, I'm always happy to help.
