UNICAT – not your average motor home


German company UNICAT make a range of full-fat, off-road adventure vehicles with more than the usual dash of liveability and luxury. These aren’t your glorified Greyhound buses with marble bathrooms and tuck-away Mercedes, people. The UNICAT range comprises 4×4 and 6×6 truck bodies with go-anywhere-and-get-back-again underpinnings. Each truck is made to order with a dizzying array of options; fully independent suspension, hydro-pneumatic suspension, fuel heaters, onboard power generation, winches, bullet proof cabs, tyre cranes and even rear wheel steering.


But just because the truck is tough, doesn’t mean the living is rough. The living sections have a powered pop-top roof and are stocked with all the modern conveniences, double bed, LCD TV, shower, loo, espresso machine and they can sleep 4 or 6 people depending on the model.


The UNICAT trucks can even be configured with a range of different auxiliary vehicles including motor bikes, quad bikes and even SMART cars! A UNICAT sounds like just what you need for that quiet little getaway to Kilimanjaro.

UNICAT pursues a simple ambition: a vehicle must afford safety and comfort and, above all, prove itself in everyday travelling. That is why we insist on equipping each vehicle to the quality standards that make travel safe – even if a customer, for cost reasons, perhaps would give preference to an inadequate vehicle for lack of travelling experience. UNICAT vehicles have their price, of course – but then they are worth it, for a long, long time.

  • Notice how their picture shows one of the older (discontinued) Smart cars. The 2007+ models are 8″ longer and no longer qualify for sideways carrying in most RVs/trucks (too wide).
