Long time no see. Much has happend in my quest. Im sure 99% of you dont remember me so here is a short run down.
Building Unimog Camper. Bought gutted scamp
w/intent to mount it as a camper box on the flat bed. Project forced on hold but still collecting pieces and parts.
Thats it in a nut shell.
. I decided to pull trailer instead of mounting a camper box for long travels. Go smaller bed tent for short or more rugged terrain.
. Moved West and a little north to TX
. buying a 5th scamp
. selling my gutted 13 scamp
once I clear my stuff out. Maybe be months.
. bought a biz (ntacrosports.com)
Plan as of now. remove 5th axle
. Transplant the whole Scamp ontop of my military trailer w/20" Military tires
to match truck height.
One question.... to accomidate for offroad bopping around, shakes and shimmies etc..... wonder if it might be best to keep Scamp trailer's suspension intact and mount suspension to military trailer frame some how. Simplest would be Fab in uprights with holes that match Scamp lug nuts pattern, remove tires
and bolt onto trailer using these. And/Or maybe use something like Big rig Air ride cab mounts to mount scamp to Military trailer??? Just trying to prevent shaking a trailer appart. Open to suggestions.
Picture is a sample of my plans for the Unimog. Box behind cab will be built from a sliced and diced Mac Truck sleeper cab I got for 300 bucks. It will be for other passengers. My fab skills are not good enough to stretch a cab.
