1969 Mercedes-Benz Unimog

$_57 (3)

Now HERE is a Unimog that is all set to be converted into my most badass of RVs. Used in Desert Storm by the Belgians, it’s been used as a cabinetry truck most recently. What I love, besides the quintessential Mog-ness, is that it has 90% of the hardware already installed for some fold-down beds. With the Pohl Cabinetry decals removed, the reversed H.E.L.P. on the front would be a great entrance into a campground, and by campground, I mean anywhere I want to sleep because nothing will stop a Mog.

It’s on the higher end of what we’ve seen for Mogs recently, and the lack of interior pictures make me worry that it’s pretty rough. But again, the back container is awesome and ready to be used for whatever you (or I) want. Great color, unique history, and as badass as they come, I’m ready for a roadtrip.

  1. FYI this is a gas powered truck, not a diesel.

  2. @Markiteight; I was wondering about that. The ad says gas but I mistakenly thought Mogs of this generation only came in diesel. Fixed, thank you!
