About us

We are Julian and Miriam form Germany. We got to know each other in Kenya where we lived for 4 years. When we returned to Germany we spend nearly two years building your dream expedition truck.

The basis is a 1986 build 1222 Mercedes Benz, originally used as a fire fighting vehicle in Germany. When we bought the truck it had only 18.000 km mileage and was in great condition.

We then rented a warehouse outside of Berlin and invested sweat and tears to convert the truck into what it is today: a fully functional and autonomous off-road truck.
