Based on a MAN 13.280 4WD Cab/Chassis, I've combined ideas from Rob Gray's Wot2, Unicat & ActionMobil expedition vehicles.
It has all the 'creature comforts' for extended remote living with a bit of style & luxury.
Some of the appliances I've used include; Webasto-Diesel cooktop,water/room heater; Dometic-Saphir ducted aircon., vacuum toilet; Waeco 220L & Engel 40L fridge/freezers;
Capacities: Diesel-300L & 220L; Water-670L total of 3 tanks; Grey water-60L; Red wine-lots.
Hydraulic-winch; lifting towbar assembly (lifts for good departure angle) for 'A framing' a Suzuki Sierra.
The lower rear wall opens down for a deck & the upper half lifts as an awning. Great spot to sit & have a beer, watching the sunset....
