The interiors are surprisingly comfy

Expedition campers differ from other types of adventure vehicles in significant ways. While camper vans or teardrop trailers prioritize interior amenities, off-road campers aim to get people wherever they’d like to go—no matter what. Love campers and trailers? Come join our community group.

In the past, we’ve reported on truck-based overland campers, custom rigs built for exploring, and RVs from EarthRoamer that can cost $1,500,000. Today, our focus is the German company Ziegler Adventure. Founded in 2015, Ziegler builds go-anywhere Moghome campers on the Mercedes Unimog U 4023.

Each camper is essentially a box on top of a very tough truck, and the interiors feature about 6.5 feet of headspace. Step inside the crisp white interiors and you’ll find a dinette area with seating, a table, and a driver-cab passthrough. The space also includes a drop-down bed for two, which some campers prefer over the convertible dinette.

A spacious kitchen features a wood and black color scheme with white walls. Cooking is made easy thanks to a twin induction cooktop, microwave and oven combo, and sink. The fridge is located on the rear wall conveniently at eye-level, while a countertop extension connects the main block to the refrigerator when flipped up.

For everyone that loves a toilet in their RV, the Moghome delivers not only a dry bathroom but also a separate shower compartment. Other perks include a 320-Ah lithium-ion battery bank to feed the electrical systems while you’re off grid, a solar charging system to keep it powered up, and options like air conditioning, flat screen TVs, and bike carriers.

The Moghome camper can handle terrain thanks to a hefty diesel four-cylinder engine with lots of torque, an all-wheel drive system, front, rear and center differential locks, and almost two-feet of ground clearance.

According to New Atlas, the fully equipped Ziegler Moghome at CMT 2019 wore an “expo price” of €369,000 (approx. US$420,000). That’s a lot of cash, but it is fairly standard for these high-end expedition vehicles. It’s also currently only available in Europe, but we think an expedition across the pond sounds like quite the adventure. Head over here for more.
