Need someone to have a look at a Mog for me...

Im looking for a Unimog at the moment but my knowledge is very limited.
What I am looking for is for someone who has a good knowledge of Mogs to come with me and check it over for me (obviously I will pay for your time).
Just north of Carlisle area.

I look forward to hearing from you...

Chris

Re: Need someone to have a look at a Mog for me...

My thoughts exactly, hence me wanting a bit of a Mog-Hugger to come and take a look with me...
The one on ebay is only a U1200, to small for me
Im wanting a U1600/1650

Ibbetts in Cambridgeshire have a tasty looking U1600. They're a proper dealer (unlike other in the SE).

Don't buy off eBay and such as you'll get someone else's trash. If you buy second hand defo take a very experienced truck mechanic along. I don't think he needs to be a Mog expert, trucks is trucks after all.

Pm Woodmad on here, he knows a few things about mogs, as he sells them for Vos and has owned/ worked a few himself.
