Project Description

U1300 Dual Cab Slide-On

Purchased as an ex-fire truck, the owner of this Unimog wanted a compact  body to suit overland travel, whilst still being able to utilise the tray when at home. Unidan designed and built this body with that in mind. Without having to sacrifice any off-road capabilities but still having the comfort of accommodation and ample storage for quick weekends away.

This project is a true testament to Unidan’s ability to provide universal solutions to any customer. By listening to the needs to this specific customer we were able to design, fabricate and deliver the ultimate vehicle for their needs.
