UNICAT Mobile Home Trucks

I’ve been meaning to write this one for months. I found a picture of one of these Unicat vehicles on an image search so i investigated. Unicat are a German company who special in building mobile home or specialised chassis’ for a specific job, such as a Disaster Response truck or an other road Laboratory truck (look them up!). It seems that if you want to buy you and the family a new holiday camper for travelling the Mongolian plains or the Sahara Desert, then Unicat can help you out.

Well thats that then all that it leaves me to do is put a few more pics of the interiour on here;

In all honesty i can’t really see any one other than Millionaires be able to afford one of these, although i guess you could become a new age traveller and sell up your house and beloved Ford Cortina and head off across the world, i think i’d happily give it ago, although i think i’d have to get at least as far as Clacton on Sea to experience the on-sand capabilities!! If you like the look of the new stuff but can’t afford one there is a fair list of Used vehicles for sale as a starter option!
