Trip to China

Trip to China

Last month I mentioned Adam and Chloe, who bought a U1300L to go on a very long journey. I spoke to Adam a little while ago and he very kindly gave me a run down of their travel plans and how things are going so far - "Adam and Chloe, two seemingly sane people from London, are setting off in May on the trip-of-a-lifetime. Their plan, considered less-than-sane by many, is to drive from the UK to China and back, aiming to arrive home in time for Christmas with their families. Their vehicle of choice? A U1300L Unimog of course! Their Unimog specialists of choice? Atkinson Vos!

With London as their starting point they will drive across Europe and Scandinavia to Russia then east through Siberia to Mongolia. From there they will travel south through China, around South East Asia (Laos, Cambodia, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore) then ship their vehicle to India. After driving across India they will cross into Pakistan and drive north along the Korakoram highway towards China. Their route then takes them Southwest along the Silk Road (taking in Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan andTurkmenistan on the way) to Iran then back to Europe via Turkey.

Adam states ‘Chloe and driving are my two greatest passions in life and I suspect my love of both will be heavily tested by 7 months driving at 50 mph across the wilderness together’. Good luck Adam, Chloe and the Unimog!

Adam and Chloe would love to hear from anyone with contacts in the more remote countries they are travelling through so please let Atkinson Vos know and they will forward these to them." Well good luck Adam and Chloe from all of us at Atkinson Vos and we look forward to another update soon!!

Lars-Erik Bammis Ohlsson

When I bought my U1000 “Rustbucket” , Simon gave me a fair & frank appraisal of its condition. The mog was cleaned and shipped professionally with no issues upon landing here in Australia. Since then, AV has provided me with excellent spares support and the occasional bit of advice. Posting was always prompt and economical via Royal Mail – this has taken a lot of the pain out of restoration. Highly recommended.


Atkinson Vos not only supplied my Unimog some years ago but they have been ever present when I needed any advice or assistance. My Unimog recently underwent a full refurbishment in their workshop and I have to say the result has been nothing short of superb. My Moggy is not only in great mechanical shape but it looks great too. Top marks Atkinson Vos.

James Mc Donnell, Ireland

Whenever I drive my MOG on to their yard, I have a feeling of excitement about the opportunities for upgrade and improvement that Atkinson Vos offers. Anything is possible, and everything is done to a very high standard!. Atkinson Vos prepared my Unimog to an excellent standard. Their aftersales service is great too.


Hi Simon, The shims arrived last week. My unimog is now running perfectly! Thank you a lot for the excellent service, I really appreciate it!

Casper Hanekamp

We have been using Atkinson Vos for a number of years now, they have carried out some upgrades and all servicing and repairs, their staff are friendly and always willing to help. The workshop guys always offer advice and easy fix solutions over the phone and on the odd occasion visited our workshop to view and inspect the vehicle. I would not hesitate to recommend the company, Thanks to all the staff.
