More product debuts
There are going to be many exciting new products at the show this year that you won't want to miss. Here are just a few.
New MFC21 from Sportsmobile
Even though they’re still rare in the U.S., overland vehicles based on separate cab/chassis 4x4 trucks are recognized as superbly practical in Europe and elsewhere. With an efficient turbodiesel engine mounted under the driver’s compartment, there’s far more space within a given wheelbase to build a fully-self-contained, completely modular camper unit. The resulting combination is fuel-efficient, comfortable, and astonishingly capable, and can be built to fit in a shipping container for far-flung adventures.
The hugely-respected—and internationally serviced—Mitsubishi Fuso platform will be the basis for a brand new model from America’s own Sportsmobile, debuting at the 2012 Overland Expo. According to Alan Feld, the camper will be completely self-contained, with full standing headroom throughout, an enclosed bathroom, hard sides for security, and a covered, elevated porch area for mud-free outdoor shelter in inclement weather.
I am usually the last to find out the latest news so I am surprised to see that no one has mentioned this, was it already known that Sportmobile was using Fuso's for a new camper? I never saw evidence any where and then I got this email from Overland news with this pic!
So pop up camper, hard sided, looks like the door is on the pax side, looks to be a similar type of construction to mine maybe (panels joined with corners ) Anybody with any other info on these?
