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, parabolic suspension, high and low range transfer case and front, centre and rear diff locks from the factory. Its off-road capability is extraordinary!
Available in early 2020, the new Daily is available in a 3480mm, 3780mm & 4175mm wheelbase – giving 3 possible body sizes.
Its compact size allows it to access those tighter tracks with ease. But don’t think because its small in size, that it doesn’t have a spacious living area. SLRV are the leader in compact off-road camper design – and this vehicle’s layout is no exception. The Electric lift up bed options creates a new dimension in interior space, allowing for all those other things you’ve come to expect in a world-class expedition vehicle.
This compact off-road motorhome sure packs a range of features into a small space. From 2020 on, the Daily is available in 3 different wheelbase and body size configurations. All vehicles retain the spacious, open feel that is synonymous with the SLRV range of 4×4 expedition vehicles. Let’s see how its done………
SLRV vehicles can be fitted with an almost endless range of features and appliances, including diesel, induction and gas cooktops, water and room heaters, washing machines, entertainment systems and more. The new 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 4175mm wheelbase Daily can be configured with an East-West bed. The space under the bed is utilised for water, appliances and storage.

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…… 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. Let’s have a look at how SLRV 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 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. A good array of panels will, in fact, keep the basic appliances in this vehicle 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. It does, however, provide a valuable backup source for charging the batteries during an extended period of overcast or rainy weather. It even comes in handy for running certain appliances – including your air conditioner. Generators can range anywhere from a small Honda 2.0i to a compact built-in Diesel unit.
Charging your house batteries from your truck is done via the alternator and a DC DC charger. The amount of charging time available depends a lot on your style of touring. Some move camp every day, while others spend weeks at any particular location. Therefore it is vital to make the most of the available charge time while on the move. The SLRV electrical team have developed a system that can give up to a 100 amp charge. This can charge a Mastervolt lithium battery system from flat to full in as little as 4 hours.
Another way of utilising available power sources is to incorporate diesel appliances. Units such as cooktops, water heaters, room heaters and even diesel-powered ovens can provide a very efficient source of heat for cooking and comfort.
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. The Adventurer holds just under 300L in total, giving you a good supply of water for remote adventures.
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.
Additional water filtration, purification and reverse osmosis systems can be custom fitted to your SLRV water system. Reverse Osmosis is the ultimate filtration method, separating water molecules to produce pure water and wastewater, which contains all the eliminated contaminants.
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 Iveco Daily based unit 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 Iveco 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.
29mm composite fibreglass panels are used in the construction of the Daily’s body – for ultimate strength and cold bridge free 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. 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 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. 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 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.
From early 2020, the new Iveco Daily is availbale in 3 wheelbase and body configurations and 7 tonne GVM:
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 military spec Michelin XZL 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 Dailey 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 – with an expected volume of around 300 litres.
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.
Bozcrome have a new winchbar and bash guard under development for the Daily. As with other Bozcrome units, this bar and guard will provide extreme clearance and protection for the vehicle. The bar will house a Warn 12,000lb winch. Similarly, the Bozcrome rear winch housing suits a Warn 12,000lb winch – and allows for the fitment of a 50mm tow bar receiver. It also features recovery points.
The SLRV Iveco Daily can be fitted with an optional Compressed Air System – very hand for tyre inflation and air tool operation. The compressor unit runs off the vehicle’s engine and is fitted with a holding tank, regulator and air hose outlets
