2014 Global X Vehicles on Unimog U500
Founded by Michael Van Pelt, Global X Vehicles are designed to be the last word in super capable luxury overland rigs. Michael was tired of RVs and campers that were not truly self-contained or all-terrain capable, so he set out to create his dream go-anywhere camper. In 2006 he shipped his creation (also a Unimog base vehicle) to South America and began a long-term overland excursion.. The trip was a resounding success; the rig proved to be dependable and incredibly livable—Michael only stayed at two campsites during a year of full-time travel. Global X Vehicles was born and swiftly became one of the most respected expedition vehicle builders in the world.
