Spotted this awesome beast on my travels today....must be a recent import as it has relatively new Nova Scotia ‘Camper’ plates for RVs!

Illustration for article titled DOTS!



Very cool old Magirus-Deutz German RV! Spotted it outside a German cuisine restaurant between Mahone Bay and Lunenburg. Hard to say what year, but research says they were built in various places at various times from ‘77-’91.

Apparently they are originally a FIAT design, but were sold as OMs, Zastavas, Saurers, Ivecos, Otoyols, Magirus-Deutzs (though when sold as those in Germany, they had German Deutz air-cooled diesel engines installed) and FIATS, variously with different configurations!

This RV-bodied one would be based on a Magirus-Deutz 90D/90M. Loving that steel plate front bumper with all the fog lights!

***UPDATE ADDED - Did some research! Turns out they are visiting from Germany and staying in Canada for a year living out of their cool old van with their dog Freya (hence the name of their blog)! I was right - it is a M-D 90D from 1977...top speed of 75kph! :D

They have a blog and Instagram, just search up ‘Travel with Freya’! :)
