Incredible MAN off-road camper and Hamen dual-axle trailer are up for grabs.
SNAG YOURSELF a deal on this military-grade camper, built by Queenslandâ€™s SLR Motorhomes and based on the tough-as-concrete 2017 MAN TGM 16.290 4Ã—4 Off Road Expedition Vehicle, which is being sold as part of a liquidation.
The extreme off-road 4Ã—4 camper needs a new owner and comes complete with a hot shower, king-size bed, and full kitchen layout. Thereâ€™s even an outdoor entertainment system. Donâ€™t worry about power, either, as there are back up batteries, generators, and solar power panels.
The 9.0-metre-long rig is powered by a massive 6.9-litre twin-turbo six-cylinder diesel engine, producing 213kW at 2300rpm and 1150Nm at 1200-1750rpm. Itâ€™s mated to a ZF 12-speed transmission with a matching 5.01 diff ratio.
There is no doubt that this is the camper to survive an apocalypse, or the toughest Australian environments, with Michelin XZL military-grade tyres and a hydraulic winch with 20-tonnes of pulling power. And if a wheel does go flat, thereâ€™s an air compressor line on each corner to help with inflation â€“ plus a 200kg spare wheel thatâ€™s accessed via its own electric winch system.
This particular camper has two front seats and a four-seat rear bench, the kind of setup youâ€™d commonly see on mining sites. But all passengers are well catered for.
The hot water and cooktop in the kitchen are diesel-powered, thereâ€™s a Truma Aventa reverse-cycle air conditioner, microwave, 230L fridge, front-loading washing machine, 24-inch LCD TV, stereo for both inside and outdoor, plus a full outdoor kitchen.
There are two battery systems so youâ€™ll likely never run out of juice. The first consists of four 6V AGM batteries at 450ah with a Projecta 50amp charger, Redarc 40amp solar charger, and Mastervolt inverter. The second system consists of a Mastervolt 360ah lithium battery connected to six 150-watt solar panels and 100ah charger. The battery systems provide power to LED lights in the cabin and awning, reading lights, TV, 240v power outlets, and work lamps.
When youâ€™re finished working, you rest well, on either the king bed or one of four single beds (two bunks) in their own room.
Also up for grabs with the off-road camper is a matching 2019 Hamen Dual Axle Enclosed Trailer, which hooks onto the custom towbar with 4.5-tonne drop shank and 5000kg pintle hook.
The usual starting price on a similar setup without the trailer is from around $450,000, though Slattery, which is conducting the liquidation sale, is taking expressions of interest until 4pm AEST Thursday 11 June 2020.
The impressive rig can also be inspected Monday to Friday, 8:30am to 4:30pm at Slattery Auctions QLD, 3/57 Hayward Street, Stafford QLD 4053.
More information including specifications and EOI can be found on Slattery Auctions.
