U1300l Expedition Camper Makes It Through an Afric

U1300l Expedition Camper Makes It Through an Afric

For the second year running, this intrepid husband and wife duo took to the desert in a Unimog and competed in the heavy vehicle branch of the off-road adventure challenge, the trans-African Intercontinental Rally. They took on such a feat as tourists enjoying the sights along the way but it wasn't all fun and games as they were also fundraisers on a mission. This time they raised over £6000 for The Grace Trust which helps the poorest members of the community in Jersey in the Channel Islands.

On the route to Dakar they covered over 7000km, 5000km of this in “Race Mode” although they suffered a few engine problems with the mog for which we supplied parts and advice to help them through. They also met a lovely young man who with all the best intentions tried to fix one of their broken injector pipes with a rusty nail (maybe he knew something they didn’t!) There were lots of the usual African trip experiences - bribing border guards after they were separated from the main group, bartering for spare parts, jump starting the petrol station generator to get fuel and of course dodging camels which run in front of you.

Despite their technical problems they crossed the finish line on the beach by Lac Rose in Senegal, the traditional finish place from the original Paris–Dakar Rally. If you're out and about in your mog and something goes amiss, we're always available for parts!

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.
