Many dreamed of making a camper with a high roof out of the "Loaf", but until now this was possible only in garages. At the end of October, UAZ on its Facebook page spoke about the Camper Loafs that colleagues of the plant workers from the UAZ Nederland division presented at the Kampeer & Caravan Jaarbeurs 2019 exhibition in Utrecht, Holland. UAZ breeders reacted vividly to these stories and very much asked to establish mass production of such campers in Russia.
And now, surprising for everyone, but lately - normal for UAZ. In Ulyanovsk uazovodov heard! And they even offered to think together about options. But what is said on social media too often contradicts reality. To dispel doubts about the reality of the project, I applied for an official comment directly to the Ulyanovsk Automobile Plant. And here is what the officials answered:
On the basis of the UAZ-2206/3303, it is really planned to start mass production of campers, which will start in late February - early March 2020. The development and production will be carried out by a specialized manufacturer of automotive additional. equipment, caravans and campers Lux-Form (www.city-furgon.ru), selected and accredited to carry out such works by a German UAZ dealer in Germany.The cost of the entire individual motorhome module for the Loaf will average RUB 1,200,000. Fiberglass roofs as a separate element will appear for self-installation on the UAZ-2206/3303 at a preliminary price of 150,000 rubles. If there is a demand, this installation option will be certified by the plant. The owner of a Loaf of any year of production will have to legalize such an upgrade himself, but the roof manufacturer will prepare a set of documents and assist in certification.
On the UAZ Facebook page, they also write that it is possible that several variants of campers based on the UAZ-2206/3303 models will be offered: with a low lifting, medium lifting and high stationary fiberglass roofs. As options - an additional bed, windows and mosquito nets in the roof.
What do you say, dear readers? Will there be a demand for a Loaf - a camper? It seems to me that there will be buyers in Europe, especially in Italy, where a local dealer offered a motorhome from UAZ back in the last century and today the "Ouazarri" party is strong. It's still a little expensive for us, but buying a second-hand Loaf and installing a high roof on it - I would think about that. Not for a trip around the world, of course, but as a mobile summer cottage that can be driven into such a wilderness, where you can't go on an ordinary motorhome.
By the way, here's another piece of news from the same series: in March Ulyanovsk will release 200 UAZ Patriot in a special version of the Antarctic Edition
When I had my own "Loaf" in the nineties, I dreamed that it would be possible to walk around the cabin without bending over to three deaths. By the way, read about my Loaf - carburetor, 4-speed gearbox, even a hydrach, it seems, was not there.
