Based near Munich, Gekkotruck GmbH is a German company run by British-born coachbuilder Dr Graeme Neal and his German wife Ania. A true family business, they build limited production custom expedition vehicles based on mainly refurbished military/emergency services chassis/donor vehicles or on a customer’s own truck base.
Basically the vehicle is either fitted with an inexpensive modern GFK (GRP) sandwich panel living space ‘box’ providing great value for money – they are proud to say we offer the world’s only ‘truly value priced boxes’ – or if your budget can stretch a little further, between 88 and 150.000 EUR will see you drive away in an extreme AWD or 4WD overland camper (from 2 to 6 persons in a 7.5 to 20 tonne rig), complete ready-to-travel vehicles for the price of ‘just the box’ from any of their competitors.
Regulars at the Adventure Overland Show, although they couldn’t make it over ‘Spring’ edition in April this year, Gekkotruck will be back for the ‘Late Summer’ edition 22-23 September 2018.
Check out their website at www.gekkotruck.de especially the FOR SALE section as this alone speaks volumes.
