He lives in a Garbage Truck!

By
Real Estate Agent with |Key Realty | Maumee Toledo Real Estate Blog 2004001400

A realtor from my office sent this to me. I have no idea where the photos came from.

I wonder if the gas it takes to run this is less than water, electric, gas, mortgage, cable, and yard upkeep of a "normal" home?

Do you think WalMart lets him stay in their parking lots overnight?

I'm sure I couldn't get the decomposing bodies thought out of my head - even after the bleach-down. I think I watch way too much CSI! Or The Sopranos!

What does this guy do for a living?  If he can do this for a garbage truck can you imagine what

he could do for a house.  Neat post.

He needs to sell advertising on the side of his garbage truck?  It could help him pay for gas.

The vehicle posted is a "Unicat EX63-HDM / MAN TGA 6x6" which, while having a shape similar to a garbage truck, is actually a high-end custom-built 6x6 expedition truck. It was sold as a previously owned ("used") vehicle last year - the asking price was 841,348 Euro.

The truck shown in the photographs, and other similar such vehicles, do in fact exist. However, in spite of the appearance of the vehicle shown in the photographs it is not actually a converted garbage truck. In fact it is a purpose built mobile home. The vehicles are made by UNICAT, a company based in Europe that now also has an American branch.

The particular model shown in the photographs is designated as the "EX63-HDM / MAN TGA 6x6". The series of photographs included in the email can be viewed on the UNICAT website, along with many other photographs. This model has a roof that lowers snugly over the windows when travelling thus explaining the apparent mystery of the disappearing windows.

UNICATAmericas explains its philosophy as follows:

Our Philosophy: "Explore without boundaries"

There are many RV's that will ably go anywhere where there are roads and even more SUV's, trucks, motorcycles, dune buggies, ATV's, etc. that will take you off-road. UNICAT bridges the gap by providing the highest comfort levels of an RV with a go anywhere ability of off-road vehicles.

UNICAT produces some truly amazing vehicles and the company can fully customize them to suit the needs of individual customers. However, getting yourself in one will set you back a sizable chunk of cash with the Amerigo models starting out at half a million dollars.
