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!
