Hi,
I am looking for some advice. I am after a u1300 for a camper like so many before me. If anyone can help with the following I would be appreciative
Lhd conversions. Is it just atkinson vos who do the conversions or can you buy the parts direct from mb
How can you tell the real mileage if they only have 5 digits on the clock.
What spares and tools should be carried if you are going on a long journey.
Has anyone bought a vehicle in the EU and bought it back. Are you OK to insure and drive back.?

Many Thanks in advance

Hello and welcome, I presume you mean 1300l as a 1300 is a very different machine and the 1300l is a popular Unimog for camper conversion.
The parts for steering conversion are Mercedes but you will struggle to buy them cheaply. I prosume your wanting right hand drive ? Personally I prefere left hand drive as the linkage is on the left and the right hand drive lever is bloody awfull I have a right hand drive 1550L and if I could be bothered Iíd change it over.
Go by engine hours on a Unimog not miles or KpH if itís a Unimog generally a hour meter on the front of the engine later Unimogs in the cab.
Spares thatís something youíll learn after owner said Unimog but the minimum is fuel filters x 10 and hub seals to start with.
Yes you can or could until brexit buy and import into UK Iíve not done it since brexit thereís some nice Singapore 1300l for sale at the moment high spec and rare to find now, thereís going to a shortage of old fashioned field repairable Unimogs in the years to come.
Have fun unimoging
