Meet the Un­i­mog ‘ King Leo’

The Witness - Wheels - - FRONT PAGE -

A KZN busi­ness­man who has spend the last few years learn­ing how to trade — as op­posed to gam­ble — on the stock ex­change, next plans to use this skill as he and his wife re­alise a life­long dream — tour­ing Africa and Europe in a go- any­where camper. Gar­den City Com­mer­cial Ve­hi­cles as­sisted him to im­port a Un­i­mog from Stuttgart, which Alu- Cab in Cape Town then equipped with ev­ery de­vice Western civil­i­sa­tion has to of­fer, from so­lar pan­els and a satel­lite dish up front, to a front- load­ing wash­ing ma­chine in the rear. A spade on the back dou­bles as a se­cond loo, joked the owner, who wants to re­main as anony­mous as his colour­ful rig will al­low. He reg­is­tered the Un­i­mog “King Leo”. De­spite the to­tal cost of over R4,5 mil­lion he said he did not join the Ski club — for “Spend the Kids In­her­i­tance” — with King Leo. “I cre­ated a legacy for my grand­chil­dren to use one day,” he told Wheels.
