Some of you might think: “When does he actually write something about the camperization?”
To be honest, I probably wont start on the interior till June/July for one main reason. My girlfriend and I are going to Germany for vacation this summer to visit friends and family. As luck would have it we are just in time for Europe’s largest off-road show. It’s the eleventh edition of “Abenteuer & Allrad” from June 3rd till 6th in Bad Kissingen providing a good mix of expedition vehicles and hard core 4x4s.
In the beginning there were only typical 4×4 vehicles on a open exhibition-ground, but in the meanwhile the fair is dominated also by a large number of additional expedition products and services for offroading, camping, travelling and everything what you need for your next road trip off the beaten track.
There is a big difference between this shows in North America and Europe. In Europe, focus lies mostly on long-range vehicles built for expeditions over several weeks or months. Sometimes even years. These vehicles tend to be rather spacious, provide a certain amount of comfort if not complete sleeping quarters, extra fuel and water tanks, and lots of storage space.
So exactly what we are looking for. I’m pretty sure we’ll get a lot of inspiration and the right contacts to buy our equipment. Till then I’m going to work just on the exterior which should take a while anyway.
Update: We had a blast at the show and shot a ton of photos. Check them out in our gallery.
