Explorex provides heavy duty purpose-built caravans for commercial use in a range of markets, including the mining industry. We build customised caravans for clients requiring heavy duty accommodation. If you require such accommodation for your business, Explorex is your first choice.
Heavy duty purpose-built caravans
Explorex heavy duty purpose-built caravans are built to a proven design, which includes a fully galvanised steel frame and chassis, making them suitable for tough, off-road use. Computer-generated design ensures the highest level of quality, which can be customised as required.
Heavy duty four-person caravan accommodation
Explorex heavy duty caravans comfortably accommodate four people as well as a full-size kitchen and a separate wet area. The internal fittings provide a practical use of space, create an enjoyable living area and are securely fitted to the steel frame. Lots of storage is provided, making them ideal for extended trips.
The wet area is fully waterproofed and independent from the living areas. This includes a shower, basin, and commercial quality washing machine. A high-clearance 4t suspension handles tough conditions and four-wheel electric brakes are standard. The clearance is aided by a cutaway back design, with a heavy under-floor steel plate to handle the knocks. External walls are reinforced at the front and sides with aluminium checker plate for stone chip protection.
The caravans’ wheels are 16in split rims on your choice of stud pattern. Explorex caravans weigh in at under 2.5t so they can be towed by a utility vehicle. A full length Kenlow annexe extends the outdoor living area and packs conveniently into the under-floor storage area at the rear of the van.
High-quality heavy duty caravans
Explorex caravans provide durability because of a wide selection of high-quality materials. Cabinets are built of marine ply and are finished in English oak with hardwood edges. The quality finishes are complemented by stainless-steel appliances, a matching full-size upright fridge and freezer, a microwave and a four-burner gas stove with a grill and oven.
Air-conditioned caravans with LED lights
Explorex caravans are fitted with a Dometic air conditioner, with the hardtop roof design giving extra shade and providing the greatest possible cooling effect. The travelling lights are LED crystal displays, which require no maintenance.
High-quality caravan fittings
Explorex caravans’ quality fittings are used in the wet area, with a Bosch instant hot water system and Whirlpool heavy duty washing machine. A 240V Davey water pump provides reliable, instant water pressure. Two gas bottles are fitted as standard.
