Help - Unimog 3 Point Body Mounting?
I'm asking for a favour, is there anyone out there with a Unimog fitted with a 3 or four point chassis mounting as I'd like some pictures....please.
I am in the process of buying a MAN LE 160 C 4x4 and have sourced a supplier of Composite Laminated board to make the camper body. What I need to do now is design and build the chassis mounting and sub-frame. Its key to make this 'torsion free' to avoid stressing the camper body. To this end I want to copy the Unimog three point design and therefore need some pictures.
Can anyone e-mail them to me at email@example.com
I think this might be what you're after
OverAfrica - Torsion-free mounting
In the depths of this guy's site he goes into the same thing.
If only for the time....
That link that Sam put up is what you need. The first picture.
I have an old Unimog 404 and I've just fitted a dropside (pick-up) rear body to it. It already had the 3 point mounting.
The centre cross member is fixed to the chassis, then the front and rear cross members can rock left to right, like a see saw (a stiff see saw!). This does of course make the floor quite a bit higher than the vehicles chassis.
Generally an excellent build diary, even if I don't understand german. Scroll down, and down and eventually you'll see one of the possible solutions, durectly compatible with all the military shelters which have container locks on the corners:

Another very comprehensive build diary here shows what Ormocar do (seroiusly overbuilt, but you can be sure it won't break):

I've also seen three ball hitches on the chassis of a mog, which simply took any payload with three hitch sockets in the right place. Simple, but effective.
