about our truck

under the expedition vehicles it is usual that each vehicle has a name.

We named our Unimog  "White Wolf", because our "predator" is also white. The wolf belongs to the family of dogs with the difference, that the body (Chasis) is higher and the head (Driver- Cab) is longer than from a dog. This representation fits very well with our Unimog U 5000.
The other name in our logo on truck is Ushuaia. Ushuaia is the southernmost city in the world and is located in Tierra del Fuego (Argentina) at the bottom of South America. The coordinates given in our logo are the data of this city. This is our destination on our trip 2013/2014

Entrance/ Stair system:

We went in the planning and creation of the "entry level" ways quite different from the known models. We wanted a stair system that must work from the outside and inside with electric switch. And the stair system should be "self-supporting" works without touching the ground with the same step heights.

According to plan and draw a long time we have invented a stair system that works so well, that we have this filed with the German Patent and Trademark Office with the Patent / Utility Model No. 20 2012 0056 40.9. We now also sell the license for such a stair system or create such a staircase according to customer specifications.
