Adventure calls.

As an offroad specialist, the Unimog presents itself at the offroad show, Abenteuer & Allrad 2021.

Once a year peaceful Bad Kissingen becomes the focal point for the world's offroad scene. This is because the town's specialist show, Abenteuer & Allrad, is the largest event of its kind for outdoor travel and offroad expeditions. Forced by the pandemic to take a break last year, visitors can now expect around 350 international exhibitors and an extensive programme at the event from 21 to 24 October 2021. Of course, the Unimog must be there, too.

Experience adventure.

For four days the Abenteuer & Allrad is showing the complete spectrum of offroad vehicles – from quad bikes to exclusive camper vans. In addition to the vehicles on show, manufacturers will also be presenting new equipment and accessories for real adventures in offroad terrain.

The special character of the event is that its focus is on experiences and interaction. Thus there is a camp area and talks about exciting expeditions for visitors. And anyone who wants to actually get behind the wheel, can do so on a specially designed course and test routes.

Unimog as an offroad camper van.

What do offroad fans need? A robust vehicle that is suitable for every terrain and still provides enough space to live, sleep and eat. In co-operation with specialised bodybuilders, Mercedes-Benz Special Trucks can be perfectly equipped to meet these demands. At the Abenteuer & Allrad show, vehicle manufacturers demonstrate that, with well-thought-out technology and intelligent use of space, offroad suitability without compromise is not incompatible with comfort.

Unimog vehicles are one of the world's most popular extreme offroad trucks. All of their components are thoroughly tested, have the quality typical of Mercedes-Benz and guarantee maximum reliability. Furthermore, a worldwide network of certified Mercedes-Benz service partners are available for servicing, maintenance and repairs – so that any travel interruptions – should they ever occur – are kept as short as possible thanks to fast help with genuine parts.

The exhibits at a glance:

 

Hellgeth & Mercedes-Benz Special Trucks (Booth M 15)

Unimog U 4023, crewcab, anniversary model
Unimog U 4023, "Camper light" expedition vehicle, up to 7.5 t GVW
Unimog U 5000, Cabriolet
Unimog U 5023, Chassis (red)

Bliss Mobil (Booth M 14)

Unimog U 5023

The extreme offroad Unimog U 4023 and U 5023 with a permissible gross mass of 7.5 t to 14.5 t always offer sufficient payload. Particularly important for long-haul camper vans: thanks to a reduced engine speed the final drive ratio of the Unimog provides for increased comfort.

A strong team: Mercedes-Benz Special Trucks and partners.

If you drive a Unimog you can always rely on vehicle solutions that are perfectly co-ordinated and which have been developed by Mercedes-Benz Special Trucks together with numerous specialised partners. As a result tailor-made offroad campers based on Special Trucks are built just like those on exhibit at the Abenteuer & Allrad show.

Bliss Mobil, the Dutch specialist for offroad travel, offers fully equipped camper vans based on the extreme offroad Unimog that provide an almost self-sufficient travel experience.

Another bodybuilder is Hellgeth Engineering Spezialfahrzeugbau from Thuringia. At this year's Abenteuer & Allrad, the company that specialises in individual vehicle solutions based on the Unimog is presenting several complete Unimog models and chassis.

An interview with Andreas Hellgeth about special vehicle design:

75 years of the Unimog have inspired Hellgeth too.

The blue anniversary model with crewcab and wooden platform that was produced to mark this year's 75th birthday of the Unimog is a special highlight at the Abenteuer & Allrad 2021 show. It is based on the extreme offroad Unimog U 4023. At present Hellgath is the only company that offers a particularly interesting solution for fans of the great outdoors: the "Camper light" version of the Unimog U 4023 with a box body and equipment as a complete single-source package. This variant of the vehicle can be delivered with a gross vehicle weight less than 7.5 t which means it can be driven with the old category 3 driving licence.

The silver Unimog cabriolet is also an eye-catcher. Based on the Unimog U 5000, the model is the link to the long and successful tradition of the Unimog with an open cab. Purchases can be made directly at the Abenteuer & Allrad show too – i.e. the two Unimog chassis which are particularly suitable for adventurers who want complete freedom for the design of their offroad camper van.

Hellgeth also offers a wide range of equipment options – for example special suspension features, CFRP bumpers, multi-part light-alloy wheels or optimised noise and thermal insulation for increased comfort.
