Project Description

U500 Expedition Vehicle Unimog

SOLD

This Mog was originally purchased by one of our customers wanting a Unimog with a more modern feel. The U500 was chosen for it’s comfort on road, increased driver comfort, visibility and of course the carrying capacity required to build such large motorhome body on the back of it. Although the U500 is noticeably different to the standard ADF Unimog conversions that we normally see, it still has awesome off-road abilities that will undoubtedly get you well and truly off the beaten track.

Since the completion of this project the owner has since realised that they are after something a bit more ‘rough’ that they can squeeze through untouched terrain and climb creek beds where not many vehicles can manage. Whilst the U500’s capabilities will allow it to undertake any of these challenges, the 5 star finishes and sheer value of the truck make even the most capable drivers have second thoughts.

The finish and endless list of features added to this truck make it is ultimate luxury Unimog motorhome. It provides all the comforts of a 5 star hotel while still having the ability to travel to some of the most remote locations in the country. If you are looking for a truck which is suitable for permanent on-road living or even something so that your wife will stop complaining about camping not being ‘fancy’ enough, this is the motorhome for you.
