That Actros is amazing. 6x6 would put it over the top but that is probably very expensive option.

He needs a winch though. Going in the back country with a big truck like that needs a means of self recovery. Personally I think any 4x4 needs that however. Even an ATV.

Just think, that awning on the acto's is what? 1/2 way up the box? if that. And the guy standing under it isn't close to hitting his head, so how freaking tall is that thing?!?!

The awning on the Zetros, I think you mean.
Also, the Actros might have a winch - that wad of unknown on the front bumper might
Be a vinyl cover for the cable/ fair lead emerging from a winch mounted aft somewhere,
Which is common. Hard to say from the photo.

Since the door on The Zetros is actually a reassigned Unimog Door, you could scale the overall
Height of the rig by measuring your door and "stacking" them next to the camper box from
The ground up.
I am still waiting to see somebody ( in Germany, probably) transplant the Zetros cab on
A U5000, with the stretched cab and the curved windshield of the Zetros, married to the standard UHN hood/ nose. It has been done in photo shop, but I have not seen it in real life.
It is probably a bit too wide, and would need some sectioning.

In looking into the future a little, I expect to see projector lights on the UHN in the the next
Year or two.....and if I was king of the world, I'd get the factory geared up to make a
Zetros Cab ( which at least gives a nod and a glance to the theory of aerodynamics) that
Replaces the current and much-loved box of the current UNIMOGS .
I have been away from it all - Camping and canoeing in the four letter word truck.....starts with an F.

no more big iron (mogs, man's, zetros) but quite the event by the looks of things. Always neat to see how they do things elsewhere.
