Looks very nice indeed. I reckon a sankey trailer is the way to go. I'm looking for one for a project over winter, intent to respray it and style it like my defender 90. Let me know if you find any good stockists.

Yeah, OK, that's pretty sweet

But you'll never fit six Suffolks and a hundredweight of lamb nuts in there...

Have 2 of the darlings - 90 ragtop TD5 and 110 TD5 XS. Latter is everyday transport in London (no CC as it is technically a bus with 9 seats - current model with only 2 rear seats is a poor substitute).
Also use 110 for towing the RIB - much better than the 90 - also has more space. 90 more fun off-road.
Strongly recommend JE Engineering's power and gearbox upgrades - makes all the difference on a long haul.
