Overland U1350 Unimog project

Overland U1350 Unimog project

Elliot & Cindy are experienced Overland travellers in conventional motorhomes as well as a Unicat converted MAN.

They wanted to keep things simple with this build and were keen to work with a single supplier who could cope with all aspects of the build. When they approached Atkinson Vos we were happy to help.

The ex-military U1350 was sourced from Belgium and it was shipped over to us. Our experience of importing and registering vehicles meant that the IVA & other paperwork was dealt with quickly and after some minor repairs to make the Mog roadworthy it flew through its MOT test.

Once all the paperwork and testing was complete, we could get on with the exciting upgrades including an Overdrive kit, 265 litre ali tank, engine blanket, hub venting kit and one or our new soundproofing kits and a compact exhaust system to maximise available space on the chassis for storage and fuel.

Along with our standard accessories, we also fabricated a spare wheel bracket to sit on the front of the Mog which incorporated a hand winch for easy removal of the wheel.

The owner sourced an ex-military Zeppelin body so we designed a bespoke torsion free subframe incorporating twist lock mountings to suit the Zeppelin box. The design was optimised and we were able to achieve a weight saving of over 200KG compared to the original subframe.

To enable emergency access from the cab to the box we created a pass through with a special rubber seal to prevent dust and water ingress.

The Unimog is now back with its owners who plan to do the interior work themselves. They have a trip through the USA planned in the not too distant future.

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.

Pieter

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.

We applied the same process to finding our dream Mog Expedition Camper and have not been disappointed with Atkinson Vos.

Based on their performance to date, we are confident Atkinson Vos support will be there in the future where ever our travels may take us.”
