Access spectacular and usually inaccessible destinations all over the globe.
SLRV vehicles can be fitted with an almost endless range of features and appliances, including induction cooktop, diesel water and room heater, washing machine, outdoor BBQ, entertainment system and more. The under bench ‘side by side’ marine compressor fridge creates a huge amount of additional bench space and adds to the open feel.
The electric lift up bed configuration optimises available internal space by incorporating both the bed and large club lounge into one area. Conveniently located out of the way towards the roof, the bed can be lowered to a sleeping position at the press of a button.
If you prefer a separate fixed bed, the Adventurer can be configured with an East-West bed. The head end of the bed can be fitted out with either full height robe, or low height storage locker with an additional window for maximum air cross flow.
East-West bed configurations have a spacious, full height combination shower and toilet module. With the additional space created by the electric lift up bed, the Adventurer can also include a ‘full ensuite’ – with separate shower, toilet and vanity.

An Expedition Vehicle by definition, should not only reach remote locations it must allow its occupants to stay for extended periods. To do this, the vehicle must incorporate a power system that verges on self-sufficiency. The Adventurer can feature up to 800Ah of 12V lithium battery capacity, 7000W of Inverter power and multiple recharging systems – including 1.2kW of solar, and a 3.5kVA secondary alternator. This creates a ‘complete and comprehensive system’ for both power supply and recharging on the go. The power system is also suitable for charging worldwide, with 240V and 110V capability. Let’s have a look at how the SLRV Adventurer incorporates cutting-edge design and the latest technology to do just that.
SLRV are proud partners with Mastervolt – the world leaders in Lithium battery systems. The MLI Ultra series is designed to enjoy all the best properties of Lithium Ion technology in the harshest conditions. These high-performance 400Ah (each) 12V batteries are ideal for running heavy loads for long periods and short charge times. The battery actually communicates with the charging system, ensuring safety and performance is maximised at all times. With up to 70% saving in space and weight, these are the ideal choice for any expedition vehicle.
Multiple charging sources are crucial for any expedition vehicles power system. Solar cells play an important role in keeping your system charged when no other source is available. The 6 x 200W (1.2kW total) system will keep the basic systems and appliances in the Adventurer running self sufficiently – given a decent ray of sunshine.
With a high-end Mastervolt Lithium battery system and a good set of solar panels, a generator is not regularly required. These days, we generally replace the Generator with the much smaller secondary alternator to keep the house batteries charged. A generator does, however, provide a valuable backup source for charging the batteries during an extended period of overcast or rainy weather. Generators can range anywhere from a small Honda 2.0i to a large built-in Diesel unit.
A secondary alternator is generally your best source of charge to the house batteries when you’re driving. SLRV use a specific Mastervolt alternator (fully compatible with the Mastervolt electrical system) to provide around 3.5kVA of charge while driving. You can even start your vehicle at camp, using the alternator and vehicle like a generator for a stationary power top up. The high output from this alternator compliments a large capacity battery system with high inverter output – creating a complete and regenerative power system.
In the absence of a secondary alternator, charging your house batteries from your truck is done via a pair of Mastervolt DC DC chargers – giving a 100A charge.
Another way of utilising available power sources is to incorporate diesel appliances. All SLRV vehicles feature a diesel combination water and room heater – plumbed into the vehicles diesel tank.
WANDERLUST (n) A strong desire or urge to travel the world and explore
Water is undoubtedly our most precious commodity when remote touring. An Expedition Vehicle must not only hold ample water for its passengers, it has to aid in the conservation of water. This, in turn, allows you to remain out in the wilderness for longer. The SLRV team have designed a system that will do just that. Let’s have a look how it works!
To store and conserve water, the SLRV system incorporates multiple tanks – arranged in series of separate ‘cells’. By doing this, various quality water can be stored in separate tanks and accessed for specific uses – ultimately enabling you to conserve your water. This intelligent system allows you to select which tank you wish to fill by the press of a switch. Similarly, inside the vehicle, you can select which tank you want to draw from. All tanks and supply lines are mounted inside the highly insulated composite body – as to avoid freezing of tanks and lines in extreme climates. Depending on configuration, the Eurocargo holds between 300 and 500 litres of water – suitable for long-term remote travel.
Ensuring you always have a safe source of drinking water is vital. SLRV have a dedicated and totally independent drinking water system – with its own filler, tank, pump, filtration system and mixer outlet. This ensures your quality drinking water remains just that – and is ultimately conserved for extended isolated travel.
All SLRV water systems incorporate a city water entry – bypassing your tanks and allowing you to connect to the mains water supply whenever available. Pressure fillers used in the SLRV system also provide added security to your water supply.
A carbon water filter system is fitted to your SLRV drinking water system as standard, removing impurities for clean tasting water.
Staying out in the wilderness for longer is the name of the game. With water tanks set up in separate cells, it is possible to isolate and store water from various sources such as creeks, dams or rivers. This can be pumped into a dedicated tank using the ‘Thirsty Boy’ – and used for tasks including showering or doing a washing cycle. The Thirsty Boy can also be used on the ‘city water entry’ circuit – bypassing tanks altogether. The Thirsty Boy comes in its own ‘tough case’ with an internal pump and power supply for complete mobility. Just hook up your water hoses and away you go.
The SLRV Adventurer is constructed using premium materials and components. The entire vehicle has been specifically designed to withstand harsh off-road conditions – and does so with ease. Have a look at whats involved…….
SLRV use the latest SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD software to continually develop and evaluate vehicle design. This manufacturing specific software also allows the SLRV design team to develop customised solutions for specific customer requirements. A wide variety of steel and aluminium components are then CNC cut and folded for continual accuracy and quality.
The torsional ‘twist’ of the Isuzu truck chassis in extreme conditions, requires the body to be mounted using a 3 point torsion free chassis mounting system. This allows the body and truck chassis to twist independently – minimising transfer of these forces into the motorhome body. This also increases off-road performance by allowing the wheels to remain in contact with the ground.
The SLRV Adventurer is manufactured using frameless 30mm composite panel construction. Unlike inferior hot glued panels, SLRV panels are fully infused, which means they are manufactured under vacuum – injecting the perfect amount of resin into the fibreglass. The premium closed cell, self-extinguishing core material has a series of holes, allowing the resin to flow thru and connect the inside and outside fibreglass layers. This prevents de-lamination and adds to the overall strength of the panel.
All wiring throughout the SLRV Adventurer is run in conduit for protection against wear and shorting. In fact, every electrical device has its own wiring, in conduit, the entire way back to the main circuit breaker.
SLRV joinery is constructed using the highest quality materials, fixtures and fittings – and is specifically constructed for rugged off-road travel. Cabinet carcass’ are constructed from an ultralight, waterproof and fire retardant plastic material, giving high strength and durability. Cupboard and drawer fronts are finished in a high-quality ABS plastic and are complemented by soft close drawer runners and Blum overhead stays. SLRV heavy duty compression latches are used throughout.
SLRV manufacture its own range of aluminium hatch’s. Unlike mass-produced hatch’s, they are dust and waterproof do not degrade in the sun. Composite door panels open with gas strut assist and LED lights automatically turn on inside the hatch area.
The SLRV Adventurer is based on the Isuzu NPS 75 155 4×4 cab chassis (formerly NPS 300 4×4). Isuzu trucks have a proven track record when it comes to reliability – and are regularly used in rural fire brigades and electrical services for this reason. With a few basic modifications, this truck becomes one seriously capable 4×4 vehicle. Check out the specs and mods.
Super single wheel and tyre combinations offer a greater footprint for improved off-road capability. The front and rear have the same track, allowing the rear to follow the compacted track of the front wheels. The larger diameter offers greater ground clearance for the vehicle and wheels can be rotated to extend the life of the tyre.
In 2021 SLRV will released the worlds first full diff lock for the Isuzu NPS300 / 75-155 4×4 truck. The locker is available for the rear diff, while a front ‘no spin’ diff is also available for the front.
SLRV’s suspension upgrade provides a number of benefits specific to this kind of vehicle. Upgrades include:
Note how stable the truck cab is compared to the suspension.
The Adventurer utilises 2 x 140L Isuzu diesel tanks, with valves to isolate either tank if required. These tanks are protected by a 6mm full length bash guard for extreme conditions.
A standard feature on the SLRV Adventurer is the NPS 75 155 Expedition Roof Rack. It features a massive area for storage, tie down bars, windscreen scrub bars, spotlight mounts and an access ladder. There is also a custom aluminium storage box available to store a heap of gear!
Optional accessories for the front of the Isuzu NPS 155 75 include the SLRV winch bar, bash guard and a Warn 15,000lb electric winch.
The rear winch assembly is available in 2 configurations:
Designed to house the Warn 15,000 electric winch, this option can get you back out of a tricky situation where there is no option of going forward.
The SLRV Adventurer can be fitted with an optional ARB Twin Compressed Air System – very hand for tyre inflation and air tool operation.
