I've been wanting one of those for years. Thats a cheap way to get a vehicle for offroading

IIRC Colemans is out of stock...I wanted one to experience the "Mercedes experience".

I came real close to buying a Unimog last year. Keep in mind you aren;t going over 30 mph.

I really want one as well. I've seen them in action in the Sahara and nothing handles sand and mud like a unimog.

I have been tempted to get a 'Mog or a Pinzgauer more than once.

At normal levels mogs can cruise about 50-55 mph. In the mountains and climbing large grades those speeds will be reduced. (Talking about the gas mogs here - don't really pay attention to the diesel)

I see some nice ones on ebay once in a while, and a lot of parts are sold there also. Ever since I got a couple models of them (Matchbox and Corgi, etc.) a long time ago, I've wanted the real thing. Maybe someday.

Yea, Unimogs are cool looking and the ones you see for sale are cheap, but wait until something busts on them......they're not cheap. They're made by Mercedes which roughly translates into a $5.00 part costing $20.00. I've got one of these: [img=left]http://www.m715zone.com/galleries/miscpics/4/stockwithtrailer2.jpg[/img=left] American made and parts are readily available and inexpensive.
