Tackle any terrain

IF you're looking for an extreme camping experience, then a 7.5 tonne Unimog Army truck could just fit the bill.

Maleny resident Markus Brucher has two of the beasts, and wants to see one of them go to a good home.

Mr Brucher said the tough rig could be fitted with a special cabin and was perfect for extreme camping adventures - way off the beaten track.

"You can take so much fuel you won't need to see a bowser for 3000 kilometres," Mr Brucher said.

The Unimog truck can also carry enough food, water, fuel and camping equipment to stay off the road for months.

Two thousand of the special model were made - 1400 were bought by the Australian Defence Forces and 600 by the New Zealand Army.

The 1989 model Mr Brucher is selling was bought at an army auction in Sydney.

"It's good for a person who wants to do his own thing," he said.

"You can go out on the beach and enjoy yourself.

"You can go out into the bush and it's like a second home."

The Unimog Army truck is on the market for $49,990.

It was advertised it in the Daily's classifieds yesterday.

Mr Brucher can be phoned on 0400 990 905.
