Sand ladders – We stay with the classics

After much debating about the merits we have decided to stay with the classic design.

Bought them from a Romanian company. and Yes we decided Ambulance Orange would be a cool visibility colour as we are mounting them on the rear of the Unimog

Building the Living space – Our Current Designs

Having limited space makes for heavy choices.

Having limited space makes for heavy choices.

A couple of principles:

  • Never loose the rear departure angle
  • Stay below 3,5 m
  • Put the wheels on the roof not hanging off the rear
  • Fuel is for driving and as little as possible else. – In Africa fuel is scarce so we only have exception (it is used in the boiler because it is such a great solution)
  • Gas is for cooking 0n – inside and out.
  • Batteries is for food storage.
I am sure everybody has different views and it will depend what you want to do that will drive you in different directions.
