What has a 1600 mile range, sleeps 3-4 people, and is the envy of overlanders the world over? A second hand Unicat, that’s what. Okay, not all overlanders laud the Unicat. Some think these vehicles are ostentatious, egregiously over priced, and grossly obese. Yes, even those people would love to have one, even if for a short spell. There is something alluring about the brute force of a Unicat’s chassis paired to the luxurious habitat it totes on its back.
This Unicat has been lightly used, carefully maintained, and expertly referbished by Unicat of North America. Built on an International 7400 4×4 quad-cab chassis, this is a formidable off roader provided tight spaces are not part of the route. The half million dollar price tag limits the buying audience, as does the $800 fill-up at the pumps. Money aside, it’s an impressive travel platform. Perhaps not the most subtle way to roll into a quaint village, but it sure would be comfy.
