Zeppelin Expedition Camper Box

Posted by on June 12, 2012

The great looking 4×4 Mercedes-Benz 914 shown above is not for sale in Walpertskirchen, Germany… at least not all of it. The truck is not for sale, however the camper box mounted on top of it is. The box is a ACE II (FM2) military-grade, ruggedized aluminum shelter built by Zeppelin Mobile System GMBH in Germany, and is 4.25 meters long, 2.2 meters wide and 2.1 meters high (13.9′ x 7.2′ x 6.9′).

The box has been built out with a good looking, bright interior featuring oil-treated pine cabinetry and stainless hardware, as well as insulated Seitz windows with mosquito screens. 500 Watts of Unipolar solar panels feed a 360AH Varta battery pack, new in 2011 and a Studer 1000W inverter. The full kitchen and bathroom are supplied by a 300 liter (79.25 gallon) fresh water tank, and a 15 liter (4 gallon) electric water heater (230V/12V). Outside you’ll find a Fiamma awning, a shower, and a large externally accessed storage locker. Cab access is provided by a small crawl-through opening measuring 60 x 70 cm (23.5″ x 27.6″).
