How bad is the rest of the cab? Had you used the Unimog much before starting work on it, I bet it's a handy bit of kit with a Hiab.

Introduce Yourself / Re: New owner planning camper conversion
« Last post by Dan the Man on October 11, 2018, 02:53:47 pm »
Hi Nathan,
Good luck.... It sounds like Im running a few months behind you with my own conversion.
Mine is currently with ACPrice being brought up to MOT standard having been off the road for 11 years.  My intention is to get it road legal as a Private HGV class and then plan the camper conversion in the spring.
Id be interested in your thoughts/plans/conclusions regarding things like:
- Requirement for a turbo
- Fast or super-fast axles
- Twin fuel tanks
- Camper body construction type
- Where to fit a radio in the cab
- and lots lots more.

Ive just delved into the Haynes manual on building an off-road camper which Im finding poses all the right questions with some useful advice.... https://haynes.com/en-gb/build-your-own-overland-camper

Hope you get insurance sorted.  Id just assumed from posts on here that it wouldnt be too problematic.

Got any pics you can post?  Where abouts are you located?

Hello again folks.

I'm excited to say that I've been making progress on my project over the last few months even though it's been very slow - mainly of the planning kind working out the design for my camper box and details like integrating diesel heating into the engine coolant system etc. 

I'm pretty close to having some work done on the vehicle by Atkinson Vos including installing said heater, spare wheel frame, extended fuel tank etc. etc.  it will be exciting to get this done and take delivery of the vehicle after lots of months.

However I am having a complete nightmare finding insurance and I really need to reach out for any help people can give.  I have tried all the usual suspects, flux, nfu, towergate, etc.etc. and nobody is able to quote for a domestic policy for the vehicle. 

So this is a big (desperate?) reach out to anyone who has managed to get a social domestic and pleasure policy, or a camper van conversion policy on a mog  - particularly one less than 20 years old - to say please could you PM me and let me know who has covered you so I can try to find a solution.  If you wanted to speak to the Atkinson Vos folks to check my credentials I'd be very happy for you to do so. 

At the moment it feels like my only other option will be to lock the vehicle in a shed until 2020 when I will be able to get a vintage policy from flux (as long as their rules don't change).  This would be super sad as I'm just itching to take it our for a little run!

Yours in hope

Unimog's For Sale / unimog 404s 1959 doka on LPG for sale
« Last post by Davemk1gti on September 10, 2018, 06:32:32 pm »
It is with a heavy heart, and massive amounts of frustration that I tentatively put up for sale my Unimog 404.

The only reason is that HMRC are about to send me a huge tax bill. I will need to sell the Unimog, the spare parts, and loose the barn in which it is kept just to get a start on paying her dearfest governments HMRC back a fraction of the bill.

Firstly, I will attach some photos with my username on them, but the photos will need to be taken in the barn, as Im stole the batteries from it to move a truck elsewhere.

A short description of the vehicel is below

started as a rusty 2 door, converted to 4 door, using a later 1964 cab. it has good tyres on it, converted to LPG using 'gotpropane' system, so its totally dependant on LPG, it runs fantastically on this, has all of its 82HP, starts on the button. runs nice, will max out at 60MPH and run all day long.

It has a 6 foot sqaure bed on the back made from 50x25 RHS and scaffold boards, Ive had two tonne in the back on it.

it has a tubular frame to fit a roof to, this is as far as I have got, and currently run it with a piece of old canvas as a 'bikini top'

Ive owned it seven years, was planning on keeping it and continuously working on it.

Its a blast to drive round, peiple wave at you.

tax free
MOT except - its registered correctly as a historic truck so no issues with agri DVLA things

It needs a few things doing, I guess it depends on what you want from it. better to come and view it, I will get some batteried for it soon, so It can be taken out and driven. Ive not used it on the road for a while, as I'm busy with work, and took on a rusty Pajero as a distraction.

theres loads I could say about it, but probably better to ask me a question or better still come and view.

I'm needing to sell it, plus a load of other bits to help pay the HMRC back but it doesn't mean I will take a silly price. they are difficult to value but I figure is probably owes me around 5k so offers somewhere in that region would interest me.

If your local to Romsey I guess I could deliver - once payment is secured, or if you are any further I would stick it on a low loader. - especially if its your first time Unimog ownership. Ive used it to drive to my brothers place near Portsmouth on a round trip done two or three times in one day, with about a ton in each time, and it was fine.

It needs to be filled up at  an LPG pump only. Im lucky I have one within a mile or so. It also has a FLT hose connector if you want to run it off fork lift bottles instead.
