We are shipping our homemade rig name Nulla to Zeebrugge, Belgium first week of December 2018 to begin our travel in Eurasia-Africa and beyond. Our immediate "plan" after we pick up Nulla in January 2019 is to travel south (for warm weather) to Spain and Portugal, and then Morocco. We have traveled in China, Baja California, Canada and Alaska. Just got back from 6 months in Vietnam with a short trip to Cambodia. You can follow our travel @nullacruising and our website nullacruising.com. Expedition Portal continues to be an inspiration to our travels and the of building of Nulla. This is the first time Nulla is shipping outside of the Americas. We hope to learn from you.

Our first question: Do you change the vehicle registration status while it is out of the US to planned non-operation status (NPO)?card.jpgUtah.jpgyukonriver.jpg

Interesting rig how about some info and about the camper, love to know more about it, thx
Sure,
Camper: 450 watts solar panels, connect to 120v (when available), battery charger, Queen size bed, Wallas diesel powered stove connected to the tank, shower, compositing toilet (not yet installed) blue water connection.
ARB fridge.

The Landcruiser: 65 gallons diesel tank, straight 6 cylinder with turbo (12ht engine), intercooler, 5 speed transmission (H55) ARB lockers all four, widen 14" at the axel, higher gear at the differential for more torque. We don't go fast :)

Cool trip. The registration will need to be valid for the entirety of your trip (or at least faked convincingly). Since it won't be operating in the United States, you can change your registration status to whatever is cheapest.

Awesome build!!
Have you ever weighed Nulla when loaded? I’m trying to plan an expedition camper around a landcruiser but keep exceeding the GVM..

After 45 days on a ship Nulla made it to Zeebrugge all good and smooth, no damage except for a run down battery, nothing missing. We are now preparing Nulla for our ride south through France then making a right turn along the southern coast of Spain into Morocco. We are in Zeebrugge at the moment waiting for the two batteries to get a slow charge. Meanwhile we are soaking up the Belgium hospitality, waffles, fries, stew, and of course the Belgium 🍻 Follow our travels on our website Nullacruising.com 🇧🇪0886D541-347E-43D3-B054-3E3A15A34951.jpeg1CEF4F1C-F232-4EC3-8BAA-9B3CF8B047A3.jpegA79D65F5-C791-4973-87C7-9A276ED5A027.jpegAF19A3EF-1321-4F59-9723-794AA833EBC9.jpeg
