Just buy Trev's RW-1. Turn it out like a camper an you will be looking good like robin hood.
The U1700's are great trucks, but heavier than "needed" for a camper build in most cases. Also, if it is an AG spec U1700 and not a U1700L I think that means that it will have the short frame hang over in the rear. IIRC the U1700 has the frame end short, just part the rear axle, like a U1200 or similar, to facilitate the 3 pt mounting, whereas the U1700L has the frame extending a couple feet rearward of the rear axle. Wheelbase is unaffected by this variation.
YMMV, and with all things UNIMOG that may not be a 100% statement, but I think it is sorta generally the idea....
Someone correct me if I am wrong on the above as I do not want to spread bad info.
I believe in the United States of America as a Government of the people by the people, for the people, whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a Republic; a sovereign Nation of many sovereign States; a perfect Union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice, and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes.
Note:This is not cynical, it is the first part of The American's Creed.
