    Unimog Camper under construction

    Hi Iain, Food etc - 500kg ? Seems pretty much to me, but I have no idea what etc will be. Spare parts and tools will add a lot yet. The magical 7500 kg limit is related to old driver license regulations in some European countries. With an old B license for passenger cars you were allowed to...

    Iain, Independent from the material your tanks will be build: Have you thought about the advantages and disadvantages of one big water tank compared to several smaller ones? Depends on the regions you intend to travel and the available provisioning possibilities. Although I have a water...

    I installed from MANN+HUMMEL the PreLine inline filter and water separator with hand-pump and heater for fitting in the filter head: http://www.westernfilters.com.au/docs/Mann_Pre-Line_Diesel_Filters.pdf The filter was mounted on a custom-built frame holder, see the pictures. Hilmar

    It would be advisable to replace the original fuel Polyamide-lines/pipes 11x1,5 (outside diam x wall thickness) by a more common dimension like 12x1,5 or 12x2. Hilmar

    MB U1300L a good base to build on?

    Forget it! Their expected price (without taxes) is 35,000.00 Euro without any inspection or guarantee. It's a prototype with a wheelbase of 4.3m - no spare parts available for the long wheelbase. The gearbox was shifted further to the back than in a series-produced model. Hilmar

    Unimog Camper under construction

    Hi Mike, The design of the cabin's walls can be seen from the pictures. The roof is 70 mm (2,756") thick and the floor 100 mm (3,937"). The corners of the cabin are designed with rabbets to ensure a permanent strong bond when agglutinated. On top of the corners are GRP-profiles. Apart from...

Mine have the spare part no. engraved: A 418 331 00 05 May be you can find your no. as well, and then you can look in the EPC for what type of axle it was designed originally. The gears are different as well because of the different housings. My...

    Hi Charlie, sorry for my mistake. You are absolutely right: Additionally I mounted a Split Transmission. Transmission ratio (split low) 23:9 * 27:13 = 5.30769, split high = 5.30769*0.82629 = 4.38569 Hilmar

    Unimog Camper under construction

    Hi Iain, If original, there is an identification plate on the differential housing, showing the transmission ratios, the type and model of the axle and the individual axle number. The wheel hub drive (the portal gearbox housing) is considered part of the axle and "normally" not...

    Hi Iain, A bit of history: I bought the Unimog second hand in 1994 from the (French!) army here in Berlin. It was 6 years old (manufactured Sept 1988) with 26,000 km. Motor was and is 366A, original 136 HP/100 kW, 470 Nm; later modified 220 HP/162 kW, 670 Nm. Additionally I mounted a Split...
