Community Spotlight: Michael Ladden’s 1979 Mercedes Unimog

We caught up with Michael Ladden at Overland Expo EAST 2019 to check out his 1979 Mercedes Unimog. Michael built his Mog and accompanying trailer to simply go anywhere and to do it in style. The trailer is set up as the living quarters and the U1100 DOKA is the workhorse to pull it! This is an extreme build ready for any adventure!

See Mike’s walkthrough on our YouTube Channel HERE and subscribe to our channel HERE for overland community videos, news, and show recaps.
