    1120 AF Build in Norway

    I 100% agree about that they are very costly... But the quality is also superb! :cool: Think you both will be happy about it in the long run! We have 2 of the Outbound roof hatches, which we collected in person at their factory in Holland (after a very nice short tour of their factory) and...

    Exhaust Brake

    This is totally normal :-) I have the same behaviour in my Unimog The throttle pedal is mechanically connected to the valve / brake in the exhaust line. When you activate the exhaust brake, by stepping on the button in the floor, the air-sylinder that pushes on the valve also affect the...

    U3000 rendering

    Hi there Ivan, I would say that the length and overhang of the box in your rendering looks nice from an esthetic point of view! Practically wise, I guess the size will be a matter of compromizes between the needs and available space / weight. On our U1700L the outer dimensions of the camper box...

    1120 AF Build in Norway

    Regarding the rules for "motorredskap" the easy and correct answer here is that it you truck will sadly not longer fullfill the requirements to keep the classification as this, and thus have to be reclassed into a "campingbil" or a "personbil over 3500kg". The rules and requirements have...

    Norwegian Unimog U1700L camper build

    Including the roof hatches total height from the ground up is 3,46m (exhaust stack is even higher, to reduse noise and smell.., but upper part of it is removed in half a minute if needed). The camper box itself is 3900x2300x2100 (LxWxH) measured on the outside

    Norwegian Unimog U1700L camper build

    You're too kind!😬 My goal was all the time to built something that could kinda compare to the fancy $$$$ German made trucks, but at a more reasonable price.... 5 years later my budget is long gone (~2x early estimates...) ...but I'm happy to say that the finished result is at least near to...

    Norwegian Unimog U1700L camper build

    The tabletop with the world map was actually a gift from a Polish guy (Christopher from "Adventure Van") we met during the lockdown in Poland during our amputated Asia-Trip. Initially we had the table from an old caravan, it was OK, but nothing fancy. So after staying for more than a week at the...

    Norwegian Unimog U1700L camper build

    Norwegian Unimog U1700L camper build

    Thanks😎 I to like the mix of wood and steel/aluminum. A friend of mine made a lot of the plywood plares on a CNC mill, so I'm very happy with the finished result. Our travel plan was roughly Eastern-Europe, Turkey, Caucasus, "The Stan countries", then back home via Russia, Ukraine and the...
