MAN LE10 220 4x4 truck camper in Banff

from our man in Banff, Alex Emond:
"Here is a little runabout that's just parked across the street. From the old country. Those Germans ! I want one. Car camping would never be the same again"--AE
(ed. note: Autoliterate posted a German Unicat truck-camper here.)


  1. Just desire to say your article is as surprising. The clarity in your post is simply excellent and i could assume you’re an expert on Truck Campers.

  2. Just found our truck here. If you want to learn more about the vehicle and our traveling around North America (traveled for more than a year around your beautiful country - and it was the second time!) you can check our website:
    There is even a shorter version of our reports in English!
