2016 we got our camper custom built from “Dopfer Reisemobile“, a German manufacturer who produces about 20 vehicles per year. Now, after 160 000 Km in total and 30 000 Km on African roads we know this is still the perfect car for us and there are only view details we like to change for our next big adventure in South America from 2024.
The camper is based on a Mercedes Sprinter 906 (EURO 6) with OBERAIGNER ZG3 4×4 and a ORMOCAR GFK cabin. The dimensions are 6.80 / 2,25 / 3,60 meters, so it is compact enough to go downtown or off-road and big enough for our travelling style and the comfort we need in extreme wet, cold or hot environment.
In 2018, 2019 we updated it with air suspension at the rear axle, a winch at the front bumper and a snorkel for enhanced ability in off road situations. In 2020 we changed to the most modern batterie LIFEPO (280 Ah) technology for optimal electricity management and supply.
Since 2019 we are running on BF Goodrich AT 235/85/16 which provided in all difficult terrain like rain, snow, mud and gravel very good performance. Even in Africa we had no flat tyre along our travels.
