Saw this in the Safeway parking lot tonight, waited about 10 minutes to talk to the driver but no dice. Haven't had a chance to research what it is but I want one for the zombie apocalypse :D

i'm thinking so everything on it had Germany slapped on it even there bicycles in the back. From what i could see the back had a pretty comfy kitchen, bed set up.

I saw the same rig tonight when I hit the safeway. Every now and then you see these cool rigs from across the pond. Maybe it's cheaper to ship and use your own instead of renting? plus were the fuck could you rent a monster that could go deep into the backcountry?

I so want one

I saw one of these exact same ones when I was in Iceland. It had NATO stamped all over it

Mercedes 1017, the model for Merc heavy trucks is that 4 digit number on the door.

The 10 means 10 ton gross vehicle weight
The 17 means 170 Bhp.

Pretty underpowered IMO like most Mercedes trucks, which is why you usually see these things causing massive traffic jams in southern germany, austria, northern italy....pretty much anything with a hill

I'd rather have a Unimog

You can setup a Mog with almost the same type of travel pacakge, only it really would withstand the zombie apocalypse.
