They Liked It

Saw this a Fort Wilderness Campground at Walt Disney World a couple of years ago. We were driving our cart to the boat on way the the Magic Kingdom. Buzzards playing tether ball.

Saw this in Yellowstone 4 years ago. Was just parked up at one of the viewing spots, not in the campground.
Not exactly sure what it is, but it looks like some sort of military fuel tanker, that's been modded into a camper. The back door was blocked by the bike on the back, which is on a swing-out arm

Looks like it might have been a Unicat

A retired airport fire truck?

Looks like this one.

Looks like the back end of the truck is a add on modified camper which is attached to a flat deck or bare frame. It has no wheel wells

Yeah the cab does look pretty much like that one, and the back end possibly from a Russian military truck. Was certainly an interesting rig

it is a Unimog..Mercedes Benz chasis and drivetrain and custom camper. It can be seen on the syndicated Extreme RV show. Expedition camper to go just about anywhere, costs a mint but you are not parking it at the local KOA.

I can tell you one thing it is not, and that's not a Unimog. Unimogs have a nose. That rig is clearly flat. Plus Unimogs have high portal axles, that one appears to have standard straight axles.
Google " Unimog camper " for some nice examples of these expedition rigs.

Bluepill, are those things that you've seen in person ?
If so it seems like you've been on some interesting trips !

I like the custom RC (Recreational Castle)

No "Highs"
No "Lows"
Must be a Bose

However, if I have the money to buy that new Mercedes, I probably can afford to switch out the audio.

And that may be my new Zombie Escape vehicle...

Perhaps this would come under the category of things you DON"T want to see in an RV park.
