Nice Looking 1989 Iveco Magirus Cabover AWD Camper

Posted by on June 28, 2012

Here’s a nice looking Iveco Magirus 110-17 all wheel drive camper with a Zeppelin camper box that popped up recently on eBay Germany. The Iveco Magirus chassis features a 169 horsepower, air-cooled Deutz 6 cylinder turbo, full time AWD, and longitudinal and transverse differential locks. Since it’s listed as an Iveco Magirus, not a regular Iveco, I have to assume it was a fire truck in its previous life (always a good sign; meticulous maintenance, low miles). The seller claims the whole thing, fully loaded weighs 6.9 tons (metric? If so, that’s ~6.8 imperial), and drives perfectly. It’s currently at €10,052 ($12,556 USD), with 26 bids, but the reserve has not been met.

The camper box, built by Zeppelin Mobile System GMBH features the usual fridge, cooktop, toilet, and shower, as well as a heated cork laminate floor. The lightweight furniture is wooden from Dumonds is newly upholstered in Apricot microfiber, and was salvaged from a Hobby caravan. Looking at the photos, the layout looks quite comfortable and roomy, although the interior colors would have me reaching for my paintbrush. The seller says it sleeps three. Outside you’ll find storage lockers, sand ladders, a nice Fiamma awning, and four new Seitz windows with roller blinds and mosquito netting. You’ll also notice the glaring lack of a connection between the cab and the camper, on the upside you could store more than a few spare tires and gas cans in that space.

A lot of work seems to have been done to really make the electrical system shine. The rig has 240 watts of solar panels (or FOUR 240w panels, my translation had trouble with that),  and a Voltronic controller feeding four 100AH Hawker gel cells and a Fraron 220v 3000w inverter. Inside you’ll find LED spotlights and indirect LED strip lighting, you’ll also be able to plug in your 220v appliances inside or out.
