The first 2’ behind the cab would be dedicated to holding the spare wheel, Honda 2000 generator, and water injection system. The bed still tips three ways and has all original sides able to be attached.

1) Water: approximately 150 gallons

An excellent one of a kind Unimog U500 NA for sale. You can use it as a truck or as the ultimate overland vehicle if you also buy the shelter – see more below: US$115,000 obo

The bad: The hood lining is torn and the windscreen is cracked on the bottom edge – it has been since almost new and never been a problem. The dash cover is glued back on with white RTV, but is perfectly serviceable.
I also have the following for sale:
1) 18’ custom deck over aluminum trailer towed behind the Unimog U500NA. 10,000 lb. capacity. Includes tongue mounted toolbox: US$10,000 obo.
2) Custom built military camper shelter that fits on the back of the Unimog U500. It has diesel heat, ac, hot shower, flushing toilet, propane stove, kitchenette, fridge, etc. etc.: US$15,000 obo.
Reason for selling: Since we moved to southern New Mexico and live in the country, we no longer use our beloved U500 as an overlanding vehicle anymore.
