I'm kind of used to it already! Good morning guys! From Seward, Alaska.
We are driveway camping with probably some of the most famous Youtubers around.
Youmight have heard of them, His and Hers VLOGS?? mm-hmm.
Yes! We are driveway camping at our own house and it's only because we're home for a few days and unloadingand reloading the RV is like the worst thing around but it's been working outgreat.
And we set up our mat, put the awning out and.
plugged into electric.
We got unlimited water.
Good stuff! One of the best parts of living in Alaska is that it's an exoticdestination and not anything against Toledo, Ohio but you meet amazing andunique people in amazing and unique destinations like Alaska.
So we went totown yesterday and we saw this expedition vehicle and if you don't knowit already we're in the market for something to drive around the world inthe upcoming years.
So we just drove by, they had a website on their rig and wereached out to them.
Then they responded! I sent them a Facebook message.
They ended up coming over for a bonfire and.
and they parked in the yard and now we'regonna go have a little fun with them today.
Yeah definitely! Alright! So this istheir rig called Frank the tank and it's a bimobil.
What's really cool is that;this is a vehicle from Europe and we don't necessarily have the option ofchecking these vehicles out just here in the States.
So this is an amazingopportunity plus we've made some new friends.
We got the security guard, Unni.
Hey! How are you doing? You good dog.
Hey!How's it going?Where is Isabella?Hi!.
Isabella is right here.
Can we come inside guys?Yeah of course!Hold on.
This is Bosco and this is Unni.
Bosco can we get past you now buddy? Of course! Come in guys.
I just have to fixthis, this is already a special construction for our doggies.
Oh nice! So they can also go down the stairs.
There you go!.
Please welcome!The stairs are out.
This is a nice.
Oh welcome! Thanks for inviting us intoyour home guys.
No problem! No problem! Thanks for having us in your driveway.
Oh!By the way whoever is around Seward you know that's a good parking.
I don't know ifthey like that but it's the best camping in town.
It's got to come with an invitation though! Oh yeah.
Yeah exactly! No squatting in our driveway.
Exactly!Yeah true!That's really nice.
Well i don't know.
I can give you a little tour if you like.
Oh yeah!Lets do that!AndI heard that you guys told me that you also looking into a new RV orRE, that's how you call it?.
So let's start with a little background from you guys onwho you are.
Alright! Isabella you want to start first? Yes! Yeah! I am Isabella.
Icome from Brazil and.
but now we live in Germany and in this car for three years and that's it! Well and my name is Fabian and.
well I'mwith Isabella.
We met in Barcelona.
Ah! The dog Unni, thewhite one she's from Spain.
This is Bosco he's from Germany andyeah we met! And now we travel together.
We, well we basically have houses rentedin Germany so that this is we'll fill in our fridge and that's what we do! Now we.
You formally believe in the passive income from this state as well?Exactly!passive income exactly the same thing.
It's perfect and now we wanna, we came, we shipped the car to Halifax and we crossed Canada.
Now we went up to Alaska that's where we met you guys and now we want to go down South America.
We will see how far it goes and where we ship next.
Well you can neverreally plan out life's adventures.
Exactly! We are, we already, we are alreadya little behind because we didn't want to be in Alaska actually at this time.
Wewanted to be already South but it's so beautiful.
It's the best time in the year!.
That's the good thing about being able to just choose where you are and have a place to live and there's nothing that stops you fromstaying when you like the place.
I'll just give you the tour.
Let's start heresince we're here.
This is our master bedroom.
Is that a king size bed? it is, I can only say in meters now we have to.
it's one fifty-five deep.
Oh Dammit! You're using themetric system.
The metric system.
Yes! 155 centimeters? Exactly! You're talking to Americans here! I know the length.
Hold on! the length is six, six foot five or something.
Six foot five it's long.
Oh! soit's really bigger.
That is a big bed and it's one, like I don't know.
5 timesthree let's say that three four point five feet.
Could that be? Almost five feetwide and we made this mattress specially.
Like in Italy we were becausethey gave us like thin.
That's a designer Italian mattress.
Yeah! It happened on theway, it happened on the way that we met this guy and we said, 'I have back pennies', Oh!'I have a metro shop', like really Italian you know like.
think like tenyears of coffee and then you end up with a mattress.
Alright! It's another story! If all this problems were solved that way, it would be a better world!Exactly!It's preety cool!Sobasically that's it and we have all this storage around because the cabin is onlythe whole car is only 21 feet long.
I like all this storage.
Yeah! It isreally useful.
That is awesome! and.
Those windows, Yeah! The windows are special.
The $5, 000 windows each of them if I'mremembering correctly.
Kind of! Kind of!Yeah! We Germans don't like to talk about money so much but.
Well the Polish guy we met a couple of weeks ago with an EV told us they were $5000 each a piece Exactly!Yeah!So polish dude told us about it! Polish dude! Yeah!Alright! Cool.
No but it's it's kind of it's like triple, you can, it's triple glass and it's one hand opening.
And you know it also like showsthat black out feature so if you want to like ninja or stealth camp zero light.
show them over there, show them over there.
This is a good one?Open?this is a good one okay No no blackout is like okay if you wantfirst of all the mosquitoes, yeah! screen.
And if you want your privacy and zerolight penetration.
Zero! That is good stuff! So and it's easy and simple and ifyou want to open.
There you go.
Yeah! So it opens all the way!We're gonna have to get these windows.
Sure! It's really good.
And the goodfeature since we're here, we saw the master bedroom.
The good feature aboutthis car, I can open it from the outside.
You see this frame here, Yeah!I was wondering what it was!Okay!We are sitting here this is the, This is the the kitchenette.
Like thiswhere we sit and you can release this table down.
It's a bed, it's also a 2meter like 6 foot 2 no 6 foot 5 long but a little more but it's a third bed or so.
What are these hinges and the struts for? Well this, this is just a design.
Like an emergency evacuation?But no, no this is to open up.
The whole wall? Yeah! The whole wall goes up like anawning but only up.
So you sit 2 meters high when let's say the Moose comes.
Yeah! You can sit here and eat with the Moose.
The Moose, well, the Moose is probablyable to look inside but human beings are not.
It's like really high so this wholething opens up so when we're on coastlines or nice view scenario.
We willgo to McCarthy in Alaska that's when I thought to put this truck and look downto the glaciers.
Oh! it's beautiful there.
and just open it up and then it's it's reallybeautiful and also for.
instead of being stuck inside!.
Exactly! Exactly! Also for airing through.
Like, you know inthe morning and it's a nice weather you just open the whole thing and then it'slike immediately refreshed.
Yeah! So you guys have a dry bath or a wet bath? Wellthe thing is.
with you America, I think it's dry.
So, there you go! dissing us Americans again.
No!No!No! I don't know I don't know what you mean with by dry and wet.
I wash myself wet but its.
Well a dry bathroom is the shower is separate from the toilet.
It is!It's a dry one!There you go.
I mean sorry we have like.
but this is real life.
Yeah! This isreal life.
So this is our hiking shoes.
So this is the shower, you can close that and.
You have, You have an extra window up there.
Sorry can i.
No! You have an extra window up there, like you can shower actually.
Is that one double insulated and.
No! That's actually just standard.
Okay! But you can find for the price the Polish guy toldyou.
You can open the roof window and it's really nice.
But, but listen!You can do this.
and mosquito net to.
That little window is pretty cool to.
This one's the same to.
Like you can also darken it and have the mosquito.
Nice! And here they go.
Soyou can use your bathroom.
We have the European system, we can't, wedon't, we don't need a, how you call it? A dumping station.
Yes! We have the cassette.
I can show you later outside maybe.
Yes! we have the cassette and this is our water forwashing.
How much water capacity you guys hold fresh? Well I tell you in liters butit's 400 liters but it is 380 gallons.
Yeah! Oh! no sorry what is it.
hundred gallon 380.
Well I think most men in America will know because we'velooked at urinals our whole life you see the urinals have the flush ratio on them.
So it's always leave point 8 liters or one gallon so literally men have beenexposed to that off of Urinals.
So it's a hundred gallon.
Yeah its is!.
And then we have.
I don't know if you showed them.
Well what do you have ? a big mirror.
And you probably do your hair in that.
I do my hair.
Yeah!It's your little guilty obsession.
Exactly!Exactly!How about you do the kitchentour?Exactly! Your such a sexist!He loved the mirror that's his pride and joy.
Fabian is a bathroom guy!So who does the cooking in your home?I cook normally and, , Fabian is good with one plate.
And here we cook it's really easy propane.
I have another question now.
How difficult is it to find propane in Europe? Okay good good question.
To be honest it's not difficult but you have to be, well first of all for propanethis car, I start like this, this car has an external you fill.
We have a fortyliter, well 10 gallon tank of propane and we have in like a plug where you can gowhen you have the LPG.
This is what's called in Europe.
When you go gas up acar we have cars that run on propane.
Okay! You can go to those gas stations and inAmerica you have those two.
You just plug it in and then they fill it for you atthe gas station.
okay! Usually campers in Europe though smallerversions they have the bottles.
There you have to be really carefulbecause in Germany we have a different system then we have in Spain a differentsystem.
We went to Portugal surfing we have a different system in our old RV.
Soyou have all the adapters in whatever.
So if you, if you think for a car that has, like you want to buy one and you want to go the bottle way be careful because allthe bottles are different.
So that's why we decided on this one to go with thetank.
It's like a fixed tank and you can just and you fill it up like a car at the gas station.
Exactly! and the 40, we have 40 liters which we have here like a panel.
I don'tknow it really takes a while but anyways, This is like we only use it for cooking.
So we can have, we can cook forever basically.
Plus we have a propane gashook outside and we can have, we have it you don't see an oven on the kitchen butwe have an extra oven we found a solution that we have in our so calledgarage and we put it out and then we, we can, Isabella can cook nicely and that's quite convenient.
So Iwould suggest if somebody is looking into a good solution for an RE.
thinkabout a tank.
Well the other thing is we're leaning towards a single fuelsource so we don't have to look for propane so okay it has like a diesel.
Yeah! just one single fuel source.
This is, This is also good because the rest ofour car except the cooking is all diesel.
We have a diesel generator built in.
Thisis from Domeric.
Diesel generator which is integrated outside.
I can show youlater outside.
You just start !We never use because we have also solar and wehave 600 watt solar panels so this is kind of only solar.
Solar?How you say it?.
I'm just teasing!.
Stop! Anyways, this is, this is a diesel heating.
We have the hot water and the heating in here it's like a, a air heatingsystem.
It's diesel heating and what else we use diesel? For drivingand.
I guess that.
ah!no we have an extra heating.
This car is a Mercedes truck infront, has an extra heating in front that heats up if I want to get up at 8o'clock in the morning I can set it at 7 o'clock if it's really dark and cold inAlaska and I have a hot cabin.
Nice! So that's extra to.
But the rest is alldiesel except this probe and to be honest we didn't.
I think it was amoney issue because the diesel heating, the diesel stoves are quite expensive I think.
Well now didn't you guys buy, you're telling me that you didn't have this rigbuilt.
It was built already and you just kinda bought it.
It was built and we adjusted it.
We It bought it from the company bimobil itself.
It was kind of.
but it wasn'tcustom-built for you? Not for us, but it's, it kind of fit perfectly except we justadded the Sol.
How do you say solar now? Solar solar the solar we added a few and.
I don't even remember what else we did.
That's me talking like an American.
Solar! It makes me think of when Ben Brown says Jambo! in like a really thick American accent and he is British.
So what, what we also addedcustomized was what you saw already when you cameis our doggy step so here we don't want, to we basically don't want to lose thisspace so.
Yeah! We put this and we even, even after we think about our doggies, that they can sleep so they roll up here.
Nice! and even though whensometimes it didn't happen yet so far but sometimes if there's other dogs outand you don't want to mingle we have the mosquito net and we still have fresh air.
That's awesome!I like that! and this.
That's a pretty awesome screen! and this one, this one goes out to bimobil they dobut it's hard for them if it wasn't there to build after so they had to takeall that and they do, did this for us customize.
they had to take all thebuttons we're over there so they had to take him here.
The light goes here to.
Soyou see here the little, the bleached out they had to put it in because this one wasextra.
But it makes really sense.
Oh i see.
Especially, especially when you have theblack fireflies in Alaska that you can air and you still want to be out there.
And in the kitchen there is nothing else is only storage that you have alot.
That's a classic bimobil though is the.
Spice rack! Exactly! the Germans arelike a crazy for this spice rack.
and the only thing is that's the fridgeis a little small but.
You Americans wouldn't like that.
We, to behonest, we would like it bigger to.
This is really small size but it's electric12 volt it runs on electricity all the time because our experience and there ifyou're looking, I think for you now, if you're looking building one or lettingsomebody built there's like solutions with propane mix electricity and whenyou're plugging outside and they switch automatically.
All good systems but wefigured we were like in really in hot weather in Portugal and stuff and in ourold camper we had this mix thing, the propane thing and then the freezerdidn't freeze anymore because propane in hot weather doesn't really work thatwell.
So we said that's the most important thing that our fridge runs.
That's the only thing in the whole vehicle that even though I switch offevery electricity this will stay.
Yes! This is running.
Yeah! and the other things like the.
How is this called?Ah!Invertor.
A good quality invertor?inverter exactly we haven't them against We can use all the electrical things for the kitchen we, or charge computers.
Or just turn it on here.
can use it here without for a month I I just push one button, and then you can use normal plugs.
Nice! You will hear a beep and then it's on.
So now you can use all the electric stuff.
I'm curious about the vehicle part.
We'll crawl through here.
You can walk through here.
We'll just take a peek for now.
Exactly!I hope it's clean.
it's real life so it doesn't matter.
Yeah!Well basically that's in the seats, that's the Mercedes staff.
I have to tell you this is a pretty badass looking vehicle.
It probably starts alot ofconversations.
oh yeah it does! But this was not the reason why webought it.
Oh no! The reason why we had it because we wanted to be reallyindependent and since we want to go maybe also Africa in the long run andSouth America sometimes maybe the road needs off-roading so that's what wewanted an offroad vehicle and this is, I don't know you guys.
Who watches that, probably knows about the Unimog Mercedes? Oh yeah! The Godfather of all the, all the .
all the offroad vehicles.
This has theUnimog model and it's called at Atego.
Which is, we use it for delivery trucksin smaller cities in Europe especially in Germany because we don't have so muchspace and it doesn't have a nose so it's quite handy.
And this one particular hasthe short wheel stand, wheelbase? Wheelbase Yeah! the short one so yeah this is likeyou pick up trucks here in America sometimes have more difficulties to turnthan we do.
Yeah! So basically that's the chassisand what you have to sacrifice kind of if you want to get to the motor, you haveto pump this up.
Yes! This whole cabin will fold up than in any other thing.
So I've heard, you need to make sure everything's in order in the cabs so thatyou don't break your windshield.
Yeah! Don't don't have your heavy camera.
Yeah! yepI've heard of people breaking the windshields when their cabs go forward.
A bigimportant thing is you always when you go to a garage and they check for theoil change and stuff, this one is hooked.
So there's a system that this companyinvented.
You have like four screws on the inside here you have to unscrew andthen the, the rubber part here stays on the cabin.
Okay good! so then you canbecause if you, if you start doing that it will rip and that's not so fun.
Thatis really coo!l That's the covered outdoor area.
I'll l show you.
That is so cool!.
I really do love that!and this is something also specific for this brand.
Look at that!There you go and Tatar!Well who is here?.
It's Isabella with the dogs.
That is pretty awesome! Like you could beon the Serengeti.
Exactly! Watching a cheetah stalk a gazelle while you'reeating eggs.
I am 6 foot 2 ah!I know that.
I'm playing basketball.
Look at me!It's literally 6 foot and people order hot dogs.
Exactly!People can order hot dogs in the city as a side business.
Well inside here we have our, we have an outside shower andstorage.
I like the outside shower part for just much, cleaning off muddy boots or the dogs.
Exactly!We have two dogs, two dogs and you know.
This is our, well this is like theBlue TECH 6 so we have, still the issue with the DEF.
Yeah! So it's a modern engine so you gonna have ultra-low sulfur diesel.
It's good for the environment everything.
But badfor third-world country travel! Yeah! But there is a system that you can implement ifyou, if you get informed about that.
That you could deprogram it.
It's just thatthe motor still runs when it's empty.
What's your fuel capacity? Capacity isright, the fuel tank is right here and it's also 400 liters which isapproximately around 100 gallons.
Okay! 100 gallon.
Yeah! And what kind of a.
range can you get on that? Well, we have kilometers.
When it's full it says about2200 kilometers.
So about 1200 miles? it's like 20, 20 liters approx 20 liters per 100kilometers.
That's how we Germans calculate.
20 liters of diesel per 100 kilometers.
You're messing with us Americans again Please.
I can do this.
I have a little app, so I can put it in here and do 20so it's 11.
76 miles to the gallon.
That's pretty good.
Good mileage! Hold on!I need to capture that because I need to explain this is the biggest question Americans have.
Yeah! but you're also, Look at those tires.
Yeah, yeah sure.
so those are big big tires!.
Aha!Yeah, Yeah, Yeah! and then the gearing and the rear differential, you have a transfer case.
I don't know I'm lost all I know is we're in Alaska right now.
Well I'm so confused now, we are in the 100 kilometer thing, but it's, it's kind of like, people told uspeople told us it's kind of like you're your pickup trucks, but it's okay! So youcan get 2, 000 kilometers on a tank of fuel? Yes! So that's roughly 1, 200 miles.
Yeah!See, I didn't over complicate it.
Are you letting your grey water drip on mydriveway? Oh!I'm sorry!How dare you?That must.
You may do that in Germany and in Brazil but here in America.
Good God!You better not.
Oh yeah!Let's give the plug here.
Live andgive 4×4.
Exactly! We have also a little YouTube channel, Instagram account wejust started so I don't know whoever's interested in our journey, please join usand give us comments.
We, we would, you know We like it.
Oh!Everybody loves comments.
Now this is the pooper.
This is the, this is the toilet.
Sohere in America, you used to, you used to the.
Exactly! So it's anextra tank and you have to go to a dumping station but what you are doingin Africa if you don't have a dumping station of course you say you dig a hole inthere but it's not so.
you know, Not so nice.
Yeah! But what we have, we have a 30liter, I don't even know the liters to be honest.
It's enough! It'senough.
Exactly! Ben's very technical.
You, you, you plug this, and this is like a system.
Even when you, when I open.
If you want that, you have to add this thing.
It's called SOG, thevent because when I open upstairs I'm showing it.
I'm sitting down open.
let'sget the demonstration.
sitting down, dropping my pants, but I'm not gonna do that.
Then i open the lid.
The lid where it comes in immediately when there's herstuff in there already it usually smells a little.
Oh! so your stuff doesn't smell? Mine is perfume!Okay!.
Anyways thing what happens is, it's it starts with 12 volt.
It starts suckingthis out of here.
So the smell.
The gases go outside.
Yeah! and everything goes outside.
and then I can do my business and as soon as I close this thing.
withoutsmelling her business, without smelling her business.
Exactly! So and this is hooked here and then this is thecassette.
Hopefully it's not so heavy right now.
Well, It is okay.
Yeah! And then you haveyou even wheels.
That's pretty nice.
Yes! You can go to the airport and then I say Ben can I use the bathroom quickly?Yes!And pass through security.
Exactly! Feel free to search my bag.
And that's all it takes for our.
That is pretty slick.
It is awesome!Really comfortable.
The thing is, we were thinking about a compass toilet but someone talked to us about, what if you leave your rig.
and something happens with the battery for the venting you'regonna come back home to a serious smell problem.
Exactly! and so we're leaningback towards cassette toilet again now.
This cassette, that this comes in likecombination but you can buy this, this cassette as well.
Some people we met, wedon't because we, I don't know.
I don't know.
Every four days, we just find a bathroom and.
Exactly! dump it but some people have an extra especiallywhen they travel with kids and there's more people they have an extra.
Oh!They can swap it out!Extra of this.
Then they just.
But that does not take up much space.
I like how compact that is and I also really liked how the toilet was kind ofintegrated into the bathroom.
It's not just like a stand alone unit.
Yeah! It'slike a shower enclosure but its more of a toilet enclosure.
Exactly, yeah! Good stuff!Yes really.
Because it's one system.
Is thisyour garage? Yeah! this is one side of the garageI hope, I hope its.
It's real life so yeah! and it's YouTube so it doesn't have to beprofessional.
It's just, so this is.
the real deal.
Before we see that, this is our water.
So that's where you put water in? This is where we put the water in.
I can also manage.
The funny part is that this is my job.
I'm the one that has to do this.
You're too short.
And this is extra storage.
This is where Ikeep my water hose and stuff and this is one part of the garage.
Yeah! This is, this is the set.
This here, I don't know if you see that.
This here, this is alarger bay.
This is our water tank.
This is our water tank in the middle.
Youhave to be also care of that, of course heavy stuff in low plus in the middle.
Yeah! Weight distribution.
This is the light, you knowAnd this is in the oven we've been talking about.
That's the oven and you can take it out.
It has like two stoves up there and an oven.
So I put it out and plug it inmy system on the other side.
It's gas stuff.
So here we have what we have.
This is not, has nothing to do with the car but we have two foldable, foldable electrical bikes.
I don't know if you see that!Wow! and they fit in there?.
And they fit in there.
That's great! On one side.
The other side is our other storage.
This is my DEF.
Yeah! Obviously, this is our drinks.
So how much DEF do you go through?Yeah!That I, to be honest I just refill.
I have never.
Yeah! It's not a big deal.
It justkeeps it full.
Just keep it, well keep, yeah I do keep it full andthen your safe.
We try to buy this, this thing costed.
I don't want to saythat, Walmart but it's the cheapest.
9 dollars I think.
So you really are adjusting to American life.
You're shopping at Walmart.
Have you guys camped in a Walmart yet? Actually no because we always find otherbetter spaces.
Yeah! We do it out of necessity.
Like if we're traveling 500miles in one day and we just know that we can pull into a Walmart.
without trouble and sleep for the night and get back on the road.
I thinkwhen we hit the lower 48.
Yes! Forty-eight we will probably hit someWalmarts because I don't want to look in a city around and that's just Google and that's it.
Yeah! but usually we find nice places like in front of your house.
This is our extra tyre and usually youcan ask but we didn't have time.
We just wanted to get on the road and travel.
Youcould ask for like a motorcycle stand.
Yes! That would be like, instead of thisone, it would be on the frame because the chassis is shaking.
So what's, what's goodabout this car is, my back is going that way and on off-road, my front can go thatway.
Yeah!So we can twist.
Exactly! So we are really flexible.
And this one is on the frame soit's extra like this one will shake but this one will be stable.
Oh okay! so youcould have a motorcycle there.
Gotcha! So the three parts are shaking.
You know I kindof like how you just have the regular hand crank winch.
Well, Yeah! It's not overcomplicated with an electric winch.
Exactly! Well, but if.
Keep in mindthese tyres are heavy.
Yeah in kilos or something? So there's no doing this by yourself and.
but if you, Iwould suggest, if you do the, the stand for the motorcycle or something.
I wouldgo for an hydraulic.
Yeah! but because at the truck we have.
We have, we have hydraulic brakes.
Sowe have all the compressor.
It's already comes with the truck.
So it's no big dealto just plug it in and then you're like.
Let it down and let it up but so far wedidn't have to use it and I hope we don't.
Yeah, Definitely! Here's our otherside.
Here we have the Dometic diesel generator.
How many kilowatt hours? Threethousand.
So 3 okay 3 KW.
Okay that's a good generator and it's really like, weused, we tried now, we like usually the battery size.
Inside we have like, Okaythe car has its own batteries and the cabin has its own batteries.
And we havelike four to twenty, 440 Amp Hours.
Yeah! Whatever you do with that.
Twobatteries for the cabin and when they say to us, we just look and all thetechnicians don't, but we just look at the percentage.
When it goes down, themaximum what went down now was like I would say 80% so that was happening whenthere is really dark and a lot of rain.
And we were two days in a park.
And then I put this thing on and onehour it's full.
Not even so you, we rarely use it and usually the the solar power.
I would really, if somebody builds go for solar, solar or whatever.
Go for that.
That would do the most.
Evennow I think we are charging and it's not the best day today.
Yeah, well I also, wefirmly believe in redundancy.
Exactly!So you have the solar and then you have thegenerator.
Exactly! And plus when you drive obviously, It's charging.
Yes exactly! And we have, even here, this is our plug for outside sorry.
So I could plug in but to be honest.
It's theEuropean system.
Yeah! and it's 230 volt in there and I didn't even bother to buythe extra plug for 110 USD.
Yeah! We never plugged it in so far and we're totally fine.
Well, when you have asolar and the generator.
and this is the other side of the garage.
Yeah! Well it's a little, this is our chairs we used yesterday for the fire.
There's an extra ladder.
If I would build one, I, they exist and it's not sodifficult to put a ladder here.
So you can get on top.
Then you can but do itlike, that no one else can get up.
Yes, We've talked about that.
Security, yeah! Security.
You can have like this, a little lock.
I mean if somebody wants to get upyou can just climb up here now.
Yes! but that's a little loud but you could havea ladder and you saw that people have it in between the car, the chassis and thebox and you just open it up and then youhave your climbing.
Yeah! and then you come down you put it back and then you just put alittle thing like that.
Nice! so you can't just pull it out like this.
But we didn'thave and we wanted to get on the road so we bought this one foldable, surfboard ontop.
And you have roller skates.
That's her stuff!I have a skater board to somewhere.
And youdo have a, I see you have an awning is that electric? Yeah, that's an extra thing thatwe didn't , to be honest, right now in Alaska we don't use it and I don't knowif it's, on the old rig we had and also that, we'd never used it but maybe wewill but it's electric.
You have a remote control inside, you just let it out andit came with the car and the only thing I would make sure that, this is what wesaid.
We want in front and the back like a safety because when you go in the woodsand you do a lot trust me!And we are high to protect it, to protect it from, from the, how you call it? The lining is not very good but just like some, ah.
Oh gosh!Whats that called? Diamond plating metal.
All that whenyou when you go back and whatever you don't want to be worried that the treeis inside and rips it off.
So that but.
It's really big, I mean it would go, It would go until here I think.
And with the wind it's supposed to go back alone.
Alright guys!You know what's next right?We want to go for a drive in this beast.
Yeah, yeah! We do a deal.
You show us anice spot in Seward, Alaska.
Yeah! and we're gonna bring the drone and we're gonna get somereally cool footage and go explore.
Yeah!Nice! Thanks! We have here two seats in front.
Yes! but they, you will see inside but you will, there is a possibility to havea third chair but we didn't because we are two and.
Well yeah! It's not necessary.
For you if you get something like this.
The stairs electric.
Make sure that you havea button at least.
I mean some of them do with a sound.
I wouldn't do sound.
I'mannoyed by sound.
Yeah! but a bright light when this is out you have a brightlight, yes! that you're like, Okay we got to do this! Exactly! because automated, automated is stupid when they tell you we do it automated it's stupidbecause I could start the motor, Isabella's inside and the door is open.
I don't even want to drive when I start the motor, he goes in, Isabella steps out.
Boom! Yep! So don't do that.
I realized, Well hello!You can you climb in.
Yeah! One here and one there.
hahaha! Unni, Entra!.
Do you, Are you bothered by Unni? Oh no! I love dogs and Unni is a sweet dog.
Yes!She is!She is a sweetheart.
So we start.
There we go that's it.
Turn on the light andyou're ready to go and here in this truck because it's a truck with a hydraulicyou just checked all that the air is filling up you know, for your brakes.
Yeah!And then you're good to go.
Is this a sunroof? Well it's basicallyreally rough.
Escape? That's all.
You get air.
But that's it.
You know, you can, you can do this.
The heat rises so it probably does a great job of getting rid of the heat.
First of all that and it's like a fresh, like I just, mostly I drive likethis.
Those two are a little tilted and this and then it's like that.
On my here Ihave like fresh air.
Yeah! so this is what we do and yeah well this is theremote control I told you.
We have outside lighting so whenever we areinside and something is happening outside, I can push the button and all of asudden it's really bright outside and that's it.
This is our dash cam.
Well, like I said we have a YouTube channel to so maybe we use every once in awhile if a deer crosses or something for the channel.
Yeah! Here's our back camera which Iuse while driving if it's plugged in now it's not plugged in.
I use as a mirrorbecause here I don't, a mirror doesn't help.
Yeah! I don't see the back.
And thisis our navigation system.
Ah! Yeah I just put it in but I use my telephone fornavigation.
Yeah! The telephone is more up-to-date on construction and.
It's likea maps me, maps me.
I don't know if you guys know that? You can, I use that.
It'soff, offline even though I don't have reception I can still, it still works.
That's a good, good one.
Well basically that's it! This is our handbrake.
Sothis is what you hear on trucks like.
Yeah, all the time.
This is the hand breakand then we could go.
Oh yeah! I.
Well you want to have the explaining so this islike semi-automatic.
I hope the technicians under you will apologize.
Idon't know that much but this is automatic like I can just go and drive.
Yeah! So I can also, go in an off-road mode if I push the button here and I'min automated off-road it says here.
That means it's kind of like a low range butnot really low range I figured.
Is this full-time four-wheel drive or is this.
No!This is full-time four-wheel drive.
Okay! And we have like three differentials.
Yes!And I have three different unlocks.
So if I'm really stuck, I use the firstone.
Well, if that doesn't help I use the second one and if I'm really in asituation which I, which they told me if you use the third one you must be reallyscrewed.
Yeah! then you use the third one.
Plus we have low range here extra and then Ican, but I can also go in manual and then it's like in a Formula One car.
You go upand down.
Up is Up and down is down.
So this is good when you want to be in lowrange and you're really on a hill.
Yeah! Which we were here you can see on ourvideos to.
Ah! Hopefully I'll edit by then.
then you want to make sure that you can comeup but I personally think off-roading going down with ten, we have 10.
It's pushing you really want to make sure that you're at low range and manuallyand then you put, we have motor brakes it's a little.
I had to learn.
Andthen you put the motor brakes then automatically the car will just, it justput it in the right setting, it will go down smoothly and you don't come intosliding because you don't want to push the brake on a muddy hill.
Yes! yeah! Iguess that's it so we're ready to go.
Yep! Where we going? Let's go to Low Point.
Okay! That way right?Yeah! that way Alright!Alright! Off we go.
so now I have it in automation yeah butI still can shift because sometimes you know.
I just take it easy in the beginning becausethe motor is mainly coal.
Yeah!So if you have to, if you do stuff like that, you have to get to know your vehicle and I'm not a mechanic I have nothing to do with cars usuallybut you get to know because if you are stucksomewhere and your motor breaks or something you don't want that, right.
Hey!Hello Bosco! Sorry! Oh no, Bosco is good.
It's This his truck.
Yeah! When we'removing he wants to be here.
We're just riding along in the dinette prettycomfortable enjoying chatting or just discussing mosquitoes and.
netting and when they bother you and we've all donea little bit of Bush camping where it's been less than pleasant!Exactly! And now the mosquitoes bite me and they don't bite Fabian.
Yeah! I have the same problem! Yeah!In here we have 2 seat belts like officially put before.
Aha!So 4 people can sit here? Four.
Yeah! Four people Two and two.
So what are your plans for the next, this one tour.
Where are you guys headed?Our idea is go to Mexico to be in Christmas in Mexico but we are not sure if we will manage because we like a lot Alaska and Canada and probably it will be amazing before we will be in Mexico then we willsee really.
The idea the whole trip is go to Argentina is to go to physical to Totem, South America but we are not sure because we have the problem with the.
Yeah and we know that into Mexico we find it but under the other countries under Mexico is not for surebecause that's we are not sure exactly what we will do.
But we are enjoying.
The importance is enjoying every moment.
When you're in a vehicle like thisyou just stay as long as you want to.
Exactly! It's not like holidays is like alifestyle.
To travel like that and whatever comes is good.
And you meet alot of nice people in the way and yeah you enjoy a lot.
Tell us about bringing your dogs withyou.
What did you have to do? How did you get here with them? Yeah! This was areally stressful situation! First of all, When you buy the tickets you need to before buy the tickets call the company to see if you have a space tobring your dog.
My dogs are two big dogs.
Then most ofthe companies don't have space for two big dogs.
They only have a space for onebig dog and one small.
Then we are like Fabian flew withcondo and you can only go with one dog.
Big dog in condo but if someone was over book it then they don't have any space then theonly company that we could manage was with Lufthansa and the box was reallyimportant that they measure the size of the box.
That's it's not bigger than what they want now and in the end after a lot ofstress we managed to have the dogs but then a lot of people say needs to givemedicine to your dog to really make them be quieton the airplane.
And other people say no don't give that because really bad.
Inthe end we didn't and they were really fine.
But the price is also one people say one thing in the end with a cheaper phone andexpensive for Bosco but workouts to and we did like Germany Munich to Montreal.
It was the only direct flight.
They also told us that's better.
Don't jump aroundwith the dogs because you never know if your dog will be on the next airplane.
And like that we came directly.
But it was really the stress was only tofind to the right box and the right size for the dogs because the dogsneed to stand on its turn inside of the box and like a Bosco is a big dog and it was really like tough to find the right dimensions but in the end Lufthansa opened like a section for usand the box was a little higher a little bigger and it could really fit him.
And it was really nice!But the sadder part, on Montreal we.
had to trash the boxes.
We don't havespace to bring them with us and this was really sad.
So much work to giveup in the end.
And you'll have to get them again someday.
Exactly!But yeah! but this was, all this stress was really to find this place in this timebut the rest was okay.
So what about paper work?What did you have to do for the balance and strains of bringing paper work with you and getting approval? Yeah they needed to have the passportwas important.
Not only for the vaccination Vaccination?.
Yeah vaccination! They need to have a real passport.
Then you need the ten days before thethe flight you need to go to veterinary and he needs to make like a letter for youand there he says that the dog is healthy he has all the vaccinations iseverything okay.
And with this paper on the border whenyou come on the country this was for us in Canada.
They check is everythingokay and you pay the taxes to bring your dog on the country and that's it! Butit was the only paper.
They need to have the chip.
This was important to but theyhave in Germany although every dog needs to have that.
Then they have it and was not thefirst time Unni.
Unni did from Spain to Germany.
She did that but yeahthe paperwork mostly was in the veterinary.
But was always easy.
This was no.
And did Canada charge you to bring the dogs in? In Canada was like $22 per dog.
Canadiandollars yeah per dog was not a lot but was like what I need to pay that?Hahahahaha!Normally I don't pay anything.
and then I paid and it was okay! Thank you guys so much for showing usyour amazing home on wheels and I'm looking forward to following yourtravels so make sure you subscribe to their YouTube channel.
