1980 Unimog Offroad Camper in the UK

Posted by on April 24, 2012

I’d like more photos of this one, especially the interior, but it seems quite nice nevertheless. Based on a left-hand drive 1980 Unimog U1300L, it’s been on overland expeditions in Africa three times since its conversion in  2000. The truck features a 5.4 liter turbo-diesel, air-operated diff locks that can be triggered on the move, 600 liter diesel tank, and a 130 decibel locomotive air horn.

Inside the camper you’ll find sleeping for four, all of the usual cooking, toilet, and shower facilities, air conditioning, and double locks throughout. The one interior photo posted with the auction seems to indicate a very nice level of fit and finish as well.

According to the listing, the Unimog has been professionally maintained (and looking at the photos, it seems that the work’s been done by UK Unimog expert Atkinson-Vos). You’ll find this motorhome listed here on eBay, as a classified ad, for £25,950 ($41,834 USD).

Don’t miss the Adam and Chloe’s MogBlog for a full report of their African adventures as well, and a link to their amazing Flickr stream.

Click past the break for more photos and some video of the rig on the road in Kenya!
