Because the most beautiful destinations are often the hardest to access.
The Iveco Daily 4×4 camper provides a ready to go, Expedition specific vehicle platform – with super single wheels and tyres, high and low range transfer case and front, centre and rear diff locks from the factory. Its off-road capability is extraordinary!
The new Iveco Daily platform is now available toorder. SLRV will be configuring the new Daily in the following configuration:
Lets have a look in more detail………..
This compact off-road motorhome sure packs a range of features into a small space. This vehicle retains the spacious, open feel that is synonymous with the SLRV range of 4×4 expedition vehicles.
SLRV vehicles can be fitted with an almost endless range of features and appliances, including:
These features are seamlessly incorporated into the interior space creating an extremely spacious and comfortable atmosphere.
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 its sleeping position at the press of a button. The extra large lounge and dining area can accommodate for the additional ‘Crew’ or just create a relaxing lounging experience for two. The lounge can also be optioned with 2 seatbelts and converted into a second bed for occasional guest use.
If you prefer a separate fixed bed, the Daily can be configured with an East-West bed. The head end of the bed is fitted out with a large robe space for 2.
The Daily 4175 can also be configured with single beds. This area of the truck is multi purpose, and is used for sleeping, lounging and dining – with the use of a pull out table.
Floorplan B, with the added space saving of the electric bed and lounge, features a luxurious ‘full ensuite’ with separate shower, toilet and vanity unit. This area provides a generous amount of storage and is complimented by a solid surface benchtop with integrated sink.
Floorplan A and C feature a combined shower toilet unit, which provides a compact ‘all in one’ solution for a functional bathroom.
No matter what your interior style is, SLRV have you covered. With a range of interior finishes including:
You’re sure to find a style that makes you feel right at home.
An Expedition Vehicle by definition, should not only reach remote locations, but it must also allow its occupants to stay for extended periods. To do this, the vehicle must incorporate a power system that verges on self-sufficiency. This power cycle can be split into 3 main stages:
Let’s have a look at how the SLRV Iveco Daily based 4×4 combines 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 batteries are ideal for running heavy loads for long periods and short charge times. The battery communicates with the charging system via the MasterBus network, 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.
All SLRV vehicles are equipped with a 460Ah lithium battery as standard – and can be optioned with 920Ah or 1380Ah systems (depending on the vehicle). The larger systems generally provide the power capacity required to run 110/240v household appliances and air conditioning, off grid, for longer periods of time. This in turn, is one of the key elements that allows SLRV vehicles to be equipped with the many ‘comforts of home’.
Much of SLRV’s power is supplied as 12V or 24V – and operates a majority of systems including LED lighting, refrigerators and freezers, pumps & plumbing, various appliances and monitoring systems.
Other appliances that we take for granted in our homes, such as induction cooktop, oven/microwave, washer/dryer, electric BBQ and air conditioner to name a few, require 110/240V power to operate. To convert 12V battery power into usable 110/240V energy for these appliances, an inverter is required. SLRV vehicles are all equipped as standard, with a 3500W Mastervolt unit. This is suitable to run one to two appliances at a time. If you require additional power, SLRV’s larger systems include 2 inverters, giving a total of 7000W!
For your convenience, all SLRV vehicles feature multiple internal and external charging sockets, including:
The ability to recharge your battery system from multiple sources is vital. The nature of an expedition vehicle often requires this to be done during remote travel, where mains power isn’t readily available. Lets take a look at the ways an SLRV helps keep you charged….
When you are connected to the power grid, charging is done via the Mastervolt 100A battery charger. This system can be configured to accept both 110V and 240V power sources – so you can charge your battery system anywhere in the world.
By far the best source of battery charging is SLRV’s Secondary Alternator system. This unit can provide up to 2.5kW charge while driving and also charges while at idle. This makes it an ideal source of charge during remote travel. The second alternator is a key part of SLRV’s stage 2 and 3 electrical packages, providing large battery capacity, loads of inverter power and multiple highly efficient recharging systems. This means you can use more appliances….more often!
Multiple charging sources are crucial for any expedition vehicles power system. Solar cells play an essential role in keeping your system charged when no other source is available. A good array of panels will, in fact, keep the necessary appliances in the SLRV Adventurer running self sufficiently – given a decent ray of sunshine.
SLRV expedition vehicles utilise a series of highly energy efficient 200W panels. The Adventurer is fitted with 1.2kW of solar as standard!
Standard 460Ah lithium systems that don’t feature a secondary alternator, use a pair of Mastervolt DC-DC chargers to receive a 100A charge from the truck. This is the same charge you receive by plugging into mains power.
Under normal usage, with a high-end SLRV electrical system, a generator is not regularly required. It does, however, provide a valuable backup source for charging during an extended period of overcast or rainy weather – or even when you’re camped up for an extended stay.
Water is undoubtedly our most precious commodity when touring remotely. 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. Depending on configuration, the Daily based unit holds approx. 300 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.
A carbon water filter system is fitted to your SLRV drinking water system as standard, removing impurities for clean tasting water.
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.
All SLRV vehicles utilise diesel powered hot water and heater systems. These are extremely efficient and are plumbed into the trucks diesel tank. The heater works brilliantly – and the water system can supply constant hot water for your needs.
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.
Leave the road, take the trails
The SLRV body 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. A three point torsion free chassis and infused composite fibreglass panelling are utilised for the ultimate function and build quality. Interior cabinetry is made to the highest standards. Take a look at the process……
SLRV use the latest SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD software to continually develop and evaluate vehicle design. Customers receive a full 3d model and working drawings of their vehicle design, to ensure the build meets their exact requirements. By utilising this Solidworks software, a wide variety of steel and aluminium components are CNC cut and folded for precision accuracy and build quality.
The torsional ‘twist’ of the Iveco truck chassis in extreme conditions, requires the body to be mounted using a proper ‘3 point torsion free subframe’. Conventional ‘spring mounted’ systems do not remove all the force from the body – and can potentially cause structural issues with composite panel constructions. A true 3 point torsion free system allows the body and truck chassis to twist freely and independently – removing the transfer of these forces into the motorhome body and retaining the structural integrity of the vehicle. This design also increases off-road performance by increasing the wheels ability to remain in contact with the ground over rough terrain.
30mm composite fibreglass panels are used in the construction of the Daily’s body – for ultimate strength and insulation. 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 and achieving an optimum strength to weight ratio. Imported from Sweden, the premium closed cell, self-extinguishing core material has a series of holes that allow 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. Both sides of SLRV panels are finished in gelcoat, for the maximum durability, serviceability and a brilliant finish.
All wiring throughout the SLRV Iveco Daily camper 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. Signature SLRV heavy duty compression latches are used throughout.
SLRV manufacture their own range of aluminium and composite panel hatch’s. Unlike mass-produced hatch’s, they are both dust and water proof and 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 Iveco Daily is highly spec’d off-road truck straight from the factory floor. With front, centre and rear diff locks, super single wheels and parabolic suspension, only a few minor modifications are necessary to make this an exceptional expedition vehicle platform.
SLRV will be offering units based upon the 4175mm variant.
Powered by the Euro VI 3.0 litre engine generating 180 hp and 430 Nm torque you can reach any destination needed for the task in hand. Euro 6 Heavy Duty Homologation compliant, the Daily 4×4 is more than just a truck for remote areas.
Available with the exclusive HI-MATIC automatic gearbox that offers absolute driving pleasure even in most demanding missions and terrains with 16 forward and 2 reverse gears it is guaranteed that you will accomplish every mission with comfort and ease.
Thanks to its double low ratios the Daily 4×4 is available with 12 forward gears with manual transmission and with 16 with the HI-MATIC transmission. Gaining unlimited climbing ability while maintaining maximum comfort. You can easily engage the low speed ratio by activating the ergonomic button on the dashboard.
The Daily 4×4 ensures perfect traction in every situation with 3 locking differentials in the front and rear axles, and a central one on the transfer box. The differentials can be locked and
unlocked with the ergonomic switches on the dashboard. Diff locks force both wheels on the diff to turn in unison, regardless of the traction (or lack thereof) available to either wheel individually.
The Daily is available with factory super single tyres and wheels, as well as a range of aftermarket combinations. Super singles create a large footprint thus increasing off-road performance.
The interior of the Iveco Daily 4×4 is a quiet and comfortable driving environment. Boasting an all-new cabin interior with improved sound deadening, dust suppression technology, new climate control system and driver’s air-suspended seat, the Daily 4×4 is quiet and comfortable for both short and long journeys. And with ergonomically-designed controls and switches, multiple storage compartments and Bluetooth-equipped sound system, the new Daily 4×4 is also easy-to-use.
This vehicle is currently available with a 200L diesel upgrade. SLRV are currently developing a separate long range tank for this vehicle.
SLRV’s custom aluminium expedition roof rack provides additional storage area over the cab of the truck. It also features a side access ladder, spotlight mounts and side bars to protect the windscreen from tree branches.
Optional accessories for the front of the Isuzu NPS 155 75 include a 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 Daily 4×4 can be fitted with an optional ARB Twin Compressed Air System – very hand for tyre inflation and air tool operation.
