Meet the Unimog ‘ King Leo’
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.
