Although economical times are challenging, the European expedition truck manufacturers at Abenteuer Allrad 2013 made an impressive presentation. Most had a new truck model on display, some almost finished to be delivered to a customer.

The European manufacturer market is still overwhelmingly German,  but their customers are increasingly more international. Also two new expedition truck companies were present at Abenteuer Allrad 2013 both from the Netherlands.

With the growing number of manufacturers there are also quite a few pre-owned Expedition Trucks for sale worldwide.
