If you need a motorhome that's more rugged than a standard run-of-the-mill, off-the-shelf motorhome, you should probaly take a look at Global Xpedition Vehicles based in Ozark, Missouri.
A press release from these guys crossed our desk recently, and near as we can figure the photos you're looking at are of the Safari Expedition model.
This specific vehicle is based on a 2005 Unimog U-500 4x4. Its features include a 6.4L Mercedes-Benz diesel engine; transmission with 16 forward and 12 reverse gears; 154-inch wheelbase; 31.7-foot turning radius; 110-gallon total fuel capacity and more can be added; air brakes; front and rear diff lockers; and 21 and 22 inches of front and rear axle clearance, respectively.
The living area is utterly amazing. This model has all the amenities you'd expect including 131-gallon fresh water capacity, Cherry cabinets and an array of appliances and televisions. All in an ultra-rugged package. Following are some images of the interior of the vehicle.
These vehicles look to be the last word in off-highway-capable motorhomes. The research and development and the materials used indicate that Global Xpedition Vehicles has done their homework. For more info go to www.globalxvehicles.com and learn more.
