Unimog-S 404 Camper Conversion
If you are converting a 404 into a camper, here is the way to do it:
Description originally from Luke Miller.
- Optional, but highly recomended - if you have the radio box
model, replace the steel radio box with aluminum for great weight
savings. You can either build a new box from aluminum or just replace
the steel skin.
- Find the pop-up camper off an old VW bus. (You can buy a new one for
about $600) These fit almost exactly to the roof of a mog. I put mine on
in one day with the help of a friend.
- Put a large (~20 gal) propane tank where the old gas heater used to be.
The existing tray works great for mounting.
- Custom build the interior to your desire. (be careful: the floor in mine
was far from level.)

restoration, a photo documentation of the entire project.
