Awesome rig

Saw this cool expedition rig the other day in Flagstaff. Costa Rica plates. I especially like the monster over-sized spotlight.

Well, the word 'feuerwehr' (visible in the one pic) is German for 'fire defense'. Might be enough to get you started,or maybe get the help from one of our European based members.

Re: Awesome rig

Yeah, I just did a quick circle around it in the parking lot and my wife snapped the pictures. I didn't get one of the entire logo. Thought one of our astute expedition savvy members would recognize it

The spotting light looks like a 1950s hair dryer.

Re: Awesome rig

You can get this rigs pretty cheap here in germany. Most time they stand around in small towns. So no much miles on it. The engines are most time diesel with between 80 and 100 HP
Most of them are on the way to Africa.....good old stuff is easy to repair. So they love it.
