GERMAN Expedition camper truck MAN 10.220 4×4.

A large sitting and living area, lots of storage space, king size bed, large kitchen counter, extremely short thus easy maneuverable!

Truck: 1997 – 360.000 km

Living quarters from 2006

Don’t let yourself deceive by her age or kilometers, the truck is in optimum condition and guaranteed without any problem ready for the next 300.000 km!

We are a Dutch couple (60 and 67) and enjoy this excellent expedition truck from 2007 on. From Florida on we enjoyed the USA, Canada en Alaska in a period of 4 years and have seen most of the beautiful parks and nature and drove the most barren dirt and sand roads in desserts, forests and National Parks.

In one year we crossed Central America and are now already 4 years in South America which we have seen from Cape Horn in Fire-land to the Amazon rain-forest in the North of Brazil and Colombia. We are still using the camper and are in Argentina now and are going on until sold.

The MAN is perfectly maintained and takes you anywhere over asphalt and the worst dirt roads. It is a short, easy to maneuver and excellent maintained truck with large sitting area and kitchen and lots of inside and outside storage space. The MAN has never let us down on the rough, muddy, stony, forest, or small mountain roads, rain or freezing cold. This is the KING of the road!

We are on our way to Colombia and Venezuela now, the truck is available in the course of 2016 in S-Am. and it knows its way back to the starting point; Alaska.

Are you interested in buying this truck to enjoy a great tour through South-America and drive it slowly back north over Panama to Canada, YOU MAY!!! It’s a wonderful life! When solo bicyclists, motor bikers and normal campers can do Alaska-Fire-land, YOU CAN!!

Our expedition truck is held by us in great condition during the 9 years we are living and travelling in it, fully equipped with household-sleeping-eating gear, tools, parts, filters and all the travel info needed. Of course things are replaced now and then.

We keep a logbook in which changes and reparations are mentioned.

With this MAN you can directly start your adventures journey without delay!

For Canada; we have good relations with a well-known Unimog dealer in the USA and a Unimog/Mercedes dealer in Canada who is able to inform you about us.

We drive on German border plates and title and you are allowed to import it into Canada because it is older than 15 years as ordered by the taxman. For the USA the age must be over 25 years!

Our consideration:

After travelling 4 years through Africa and another 4 years deep into Asia in self-build expedition campers we finally got the optimum camper.

After the construction of the two previous camper-trucks, we see this one as the ultimate lay-out for our “house on wheels”. We opt for strong, 4×4, no electronics, safe, short, low, with plenty of living and storage space, an adequate sleeping area, comfort, homey and plenty of room to pass each other. Furthermore, all materials must be easy to exchange with alternatives and defects easily to detect and repair.

If we should build another expedition camper, the choice would be the MAN 10.220 4×4 as an indestructible truck, and the blueprints of this one would be used for the next one and it should look exactly the same as the current one.

If you doubt about the condition of the camper’s interior or exterior after our occupation, we are willing on your behalf to make new pictures with your quote on it to verify that the pictures are recent.
