Custom Pop Up for Mercedes Unimog 500: See it at the Overland Expo

Chris Cole and Ann Pennce from Campa USA, the manufacturers of Campa Trailers, came to us to build them a camper for a Unimog 500 with a custom built and designed (by Chris himself) flatbed. This camper is 10′, 8′ wide and has 6′ of hard side walls with an additional 23″ in soft sides in the pop up.

The roof is lifted with an electric lift due to the height of the hard side walls. The whole camper has a very industrial look with the interior walls being made with the same fiberglass filon as the exterior throughout.

The interior was a combination of ours and Chris’s work and craftsmanship. We provided the dinette, the bath area and toilet, electrical and gas prep, and an aluminum shelving unit for Chris to have a place for his stainless countertop with sink and stove, fridge and other custom supplies.

The flatbed was designed with a generator – the fresh, grey and black tanks already installed.

This has been a wonderful experience working with Chris in getting this camper to come alive!

Chris and Ann will be at the Overland Expo with their camper this coming weekend, May 17-19, at Mormon Lake just outside of Flagstaff, AZ.

We are excited as this is a show we will also be at with the Bronco Bronco, and joining us in our booth will be Mitch Kistner with his full size long bed. Larry Wittman will also be there with his ’78 Chevy short bed with a Custom Phoenix Pop Up, and we are expecting a few others as well!
