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.

freedom-exteriorDesigner Robert Williams has a new caravan concept that he calls “ForFreedom.”

The ForFreedom Caravan features a spacious interior and an eco-friendly heating system powered by a solar panel on the rear of the unit. Sandwiched fiberglass walls feature closed cell insulation to keep the heat inside.

Perhaps the most notable feature of the ForFreedom Caravan is that it expands via a sliding chassis pivot on one side of the unit. You can check out the video below the jump for a demonstration, but outside of letting in the bugs we’re not sure what purpose this serves.

Finishing touches on the ForFreedom Caravan include modern furnishings, as well as a 30L electric over, 60L refrigerator, and a 50L water tank.
