Just driving them.

Post by Stephen Davis » Tue Sep 01, 2009 1:45 am

Hi all, As I have now owned our 1300L for 13 years it has just occured to me why ther's not much chit chat on this Forum.
We are all out driving them, No need for repair's, they don't brake. We are out every weekend because they are diesel.
Just you whatch, You will see all the Storys about : out getting wood for winter, going camping, 4X4ing up some forgoten track to the back of beyond,
Crimp One Off Mogs are for Life, to breath the open air & be with our family's doing it. By the way thats OUR Mogs personilsed reg plate, DOINIT.
Get out their. Pitty I cann't put up photos.
regards Unimog Down Under. :wink: :wink:

Yes your right! I was planning on owning a LR but then discovered my first Unimog in one of the landrover mags. They allowed it into a LR offroad event to pull out vehicles stuck in a mud bog/pit and when I saw that I changed direction and bought my first 404 with radio box as a camper. After a few years with it i saved up for my 1350L ambulance that was converted to a camper. I bought it near Munich and stored it there and when I had holidays I would fly over for a month or so and travel around europe in it. My ultimate goal was to drive down to the south of spain and cross to morocco and head to the desert with it. This never materialized as fuel prices ended up so high it wasnt a viable plan anymore so I shipped it to North America.
