A Dakar service and assistance truck from the 2000s has been transformed into an off-road motorhome by a professional company. Like any other motorhome, it has all the features of a traditional motorhome but has a little extra: the ability to go to any extreme destination.
The holiday season is fast approaching and there is no shortage of choices. For the past few years and a few movies and TV shows, camping has become a viral trend. So to go on vacation in the open air, why not opt for a motorhome that stands out? An old Dakar truck for example?
Dakar Rally: what is it exactly?
Who has never heard the name Dakar at least once in their life? All car enthusiasts worth their salt know this. It’s about of a long-distance rally-raid launched in 1978 by Thierry Sabine. This is a race, a few thousand kilometers long that lasts 2 to 3 weeks. Participation in the competition requires certain criteria, the most important of which is good physical condition. The Paris-Dakar Rally is an infallible adventure in the world of mechanics.

Dakar truck transformed into a motorhome?
Originally, the Dakar assistance trucks had the role of assisting and rescuing the vehicles taking part in the competition. They have an impressive power and a rather particular aspect. One of these service trucks from the 2000s found a new life after being at the service of the KTM and Orelen Rally team for more than 9 years. A company specializing in the renovation of motorhomes took care of his case and transformed it into an off-road motorhome. He is available in the Netherlands.
Like at the Dakar Rally, do you find that we never talk enough about trucks? 😇
