    I was parked up at the layby at the border to Scotland waiting for Customs clearance when this Dutch man pulled up with his Wildcamping motorhome. I have only just got the picture out of the piles I took. DSCF1946.JPG www.motorhomefun.co.uk[/

    a unimog may be 8mpg on a good day but will keep going on virtually any terrain. somewhat overkill for anywhere in the uk.

    He did tell me it was use in the Dutch mountains when the snow on the peaks is high,(Joking before someone point out the obvious) but when I asked him about the fuel consumption he said it is OK. He must have more money than me, Nice bloke very friendly, as are most Dutch people

    See your Unimog and raise you this. But I think the Unimog would be a bit easier to park at Lidls, similar paint job though.

    We saw the Dutchman at Newport (South Wales) last year, on a site overlooking the Parrog. From a distance, couldn't work out what it was. Reminded me of what we servicemen used to call a Monab.
