    As well as adventure motorcycles I also would love an expedition truck.

    This is at the high end of the scale in terms of cost and quality of fitout

    The MAN Kat 1 is at the heavy weight end of the scale.
    The guy that owns this truck is actually a Kiwi.

    There’s been quite a few builds on the Mitsubishi Fuso/Canter 4×4 chassis, including the Earthcruiser which is designed to fit into a container so that it is easily shipped overseas.

    Here’s a good writeup on a private Fuso build

    Here’s some random other trucks

    You can even just bolt a caravan on the back of a truck

    Any truck in here is also cool.

    So bad ass. Would love to fitout a mog. Lusted over some Tatras while I was in Europe but they are pretty massive.

    During my USA tour came back to the hotel to find this had joined us.

    Apparently destined for Dakar as medical support it was never used. A multi-millionaire snapped it up, fitted it out like a boat (teak this, mahogany that) and now a guy was employed to move it and all the other toys (including motorbikes) around the place so his family could fly in, enjoy, fly out.

    After this vacation I think it was off to South America… sheesh, some can dream…

    There was a massive MAN expedition truck/camper at Te Papa at lunchtime today, all set up for offroad use. Hugely tall. Just fit across 2 angle carparks (end on end). The back end was cut away at a 45 degree angle to allow a good exit angle. I assume 4wd. Unfortunately left my ph on my desk. I guess whoever owns it has some folding stuff & is travelling the world in it.
