Progress, at last!

We are delighted to be able to show a first picture of the new paint job on the MAN truck as well as a first glimpse at the cabin which is being built. Enjoy!

You are looking at a Steyr 12M18 truck which used to serve the Austrian army for some time. This what we chose as the ideal base for an expedition vehicle – at first that is. Then came the second thoughts and an opportunity to purchase a more modern vehicle, a MAN truck, to be used as a base for the cabin.

In 2015 Björn visited the Abenteuer Allrad in Bad Kissingen. He had an appointment with Stefan from Excap. After a good discussion and a drive through the off-road area, Björn decided on the spot to order an Excap. Sealed with a handshake (and later a contract) we were on the waiting list.

About 15 months later the Excap work was finished. The vehicle was completely overhauled and rebuilt. The frame was extended by 50cm to allow for a slightly bigger living area (1m² gained).

Below are two more pictures to show the progress.


We wish the new owner of the Steyr the best of luck and safe travels!

When will the journey begin?

Welcome to our travel blog.

While we are waiting for our vehicle to be outfitted with a cabin that will serve us as a new tiny home on wheels, Bjorn and I are getting exited about the trips we are planning to take: United States, Canada, Alaska, Africa, South America to name a few.

Will you come along virtually?

More details to follow soon…
