Mercedez-Benz Unimog Camper Concept

1unimog0528The Mercedes-Benz Unimog has been used for a lot of things over the years, but this is the first time we’ve seen one converted into a camper.

Where the Unimog camper differs from every other RV out there is its ability to go off-road. In fact, off-road riding is what the Unimog does best thanks to its generous ground clearance and all-wheel drive. The suspension allows for long spring travel and impressive axle articulation. You can even control tire pressure from the driver’s seat so you can switch from on-road to off-road riding instantly.

Powered by a 4,249cc, four-cylinder, diesel engine, the Unimog camper produces 218 horsepower. The unit is also home to a hydraulic winch that can pull seven metric tones.

As for the interior, the inside of the camper measures 14.2 feet long and 7.2 feet wide with a standing height of 6.4 feet. The roof and walls of the three-point mounted, thermal bridge-free fibreglass-reinforced plastic box are two inches thick, standing on a 2.4-inch thick floor. The hatches and doors all come with hollow rubber seals and multi-point locks, which help protect the stowage compartments against dust or water.

The washroom is behind the driver’s seat and contains a cassette toilet, wash basin, and shower. Hot water is provided by a combined Truma gas/electric boiler with a capacity of 10 liters. The corner kitchen is fitted towards the rear and comes with a two-burner gas stove, sink and drainer.

A lockable passage leads to the cab, with a wardrobe fitted on the right behind the co-passenger seat. The 110-liter compressor fridge occupies the space up to the entrance door.

Benches arranged longitudinally to the direction of travel provide two seats with Alcantara upholstery. Tanks and additional stowage space are housed under the dinette in the false floor. The Unimog carries around 300 liters of fresh water on-board, along with a waste tank holding 200 liters. The entire rear area is home to double bed. Additional stowage space, which can be accessed from outside, is provided under the bed.
