That is a cool setup, with a nice interior. Plus ‘94 is kinda modern for a unimog. “Street legal and will do 60+mph.” Wonder if the sprinter RV is its replacement?

FOR POSTERITY: Not my truck but here is the BAT story on this truck: https://bringatrailer.com/2016/01/12/expedition-ready-1994-mercedes-benz-unimog-u-140l/
AND an old scammy ebay mirror of the original 2016 listing: http://classicvehicleslist.com/mercedes-benz/201513-1994-mercedes-unimog-expedition-camper-u140l.html

Looks like the dude in St George bought it and sold it legit. Looked pretty good. OM364 would make for, er, very sloooow going. My guess is that it was "technically" able to go 60mph at WOT. Probably not super fun. A little rough around the edges but a good platform. Here is the verbiage and pics that I could glean. Blue is from the ebay mirror (missing letters and mangled syntax is not mine). BAT page is below it:

The truck cab has a top hatch for viewing scenery or taking photos.
The camper is finished in a warm, igh quality wood interior, uilt by a sailboat craftsman in Florida. All the drawers are equipped with magnetic latches so things won't spill out in rough terrain. The camper is well insulated and quite sturdy.
This vehicle was featured in the original Jurassic Park movie!
This Unimog is in very goodoperating condition, ith some minor cosmetic defects that will take more TLC to make perfect if that is important to you. Items I can see or are aware of are: the paint is faded, he cabheadliner has light water stainsas a result ofa defective top hatch gasket (which has been replaced), ome camper dual panewindows are slightly fogged between panes. The electrically heated front windshield is slightly fogged in the bottom few inches. There is very slight surfacerust on the cab doors, op of roof hatch, nd front fenders.

Expedition Ready: 1994 Mercedes Benz Unimog U140L Camper
This 1994 Mercedes Benz Unimog U140L (VIN WDB4184051W900107) sports a custom fabricated camper shell that contains everything needed for a cross-continent trip–even a small bathroom. It looks a little rough around the edges, but is claimed to be in good operating condition with no glaring issues mentioned. There are many improvements noted throughout, and the ad claims over $12k in recent work as well. Interestingly, the seller also claims the truck had a role in the original Jurassic Park film. Find it here on eBay in Dumont, Colorado with reserve not met.

The camper shell appears well constructed, and is said to be well-insulated from the elements. Several double-paned windows let light in. Remaining olive drab paint is fairly faded, and sheet metal has an expected number of dings and battle scars A bit of rust can be seen on the lower door panels and fenders. A snorkel is also fitted, but the coolest feature is the giant turret hatch up top, which is facilitated by a passenger seat that converts into a viewing platform.

The interior seems decent, though seats are torn and some areas on the dash are clearly scuffed. The usual myriad of levers and buttons between the seats operate the 6-speed main transmission, 2-speed transfer case, and front and rear lockers. The tachometer is the only item mentioned as non-functional, and the headliner shows a bit of water damage from a leaky hatch gaske–an issue that has now been corrected.

The well-appointed camoper is finished in nice quality wood, and the generous height should allow standing room for most. A roof mounted A/C unit ensures comfort in warmer climes, while a fully functioning sink, shower and toilet handle hygiene duties. The kitchen area also has a stove and refrigerator, so there’s no excuse for MRE’s in this rig. There’s also plenty of storage space in the lower forward hold, and under-floor areas for the water heater, water tanks, inverters, and batteries.

The OM-364 diesel is said to have just over 82k kilometers indicated, and is reportedly capable of enabling the truck to cruise at 65 MPH on flat highway. “Very good operating condition” is the only term the seller uses to describe mechanicals. It does look dirty under the hood, but these motors are tough and can endure a lot of hard use.

The quality living space out back makes this one a serious candidate for a week-long wilderness trek, or perhaps even a few months spent crossing a continent or two.
