This Mercedes T1 – 410 was a fire truck out of Austria from origin. And has been re-build into an overland travel/expedition vehicle. The petrol engine has got 105 bhp, drive train is featured with hi- and low gear, diff lock on rear axle and an upgraded suspension. An extra petrol tank has been added with a capacity of 120 liters.
The pop-up roof has been fabricated of aluminium, ofcourse with sides of fabric and mosquito netting and can be operated by means of electric cylinders.
The rooftop has a bed of 140 x 200 cm, eventually with bad weather there is the possibility to sleep in the unit itself, so without popping up the rooftop.
Up to Erfoud, Morocco, via Almeria > Melilla > Nador/Morocco for further testing in
