Eurocargo Adventure Truck

Born in Europe - Raised in WA

Bryan and Annie McGrath bought an established joinery business 17 years ago and currently employ 36 people delivering high-end fit-outs to major organisations in WA. The Singapore Airlines terminal lounge, nine floors of the BHP headquarters and the Mineral Resources offices among others.

So what possessed them to design and build a fully self-contained adventure-style living module for the impressive and go-anywhere Iveco Eurocargo 4x4?

Because they could.

Built with fire-retardant composite laminate panels on an alloy subframe, the Auriga Expedition Truck is designed for the highest standard of off-grid exploration. Iveco’s Eurocargo is perfectly suited to get the rig anywhere in the country, with heavy-duty running gear, advanced all-wheel drive, and impressive high ground clearance. The Auriga body has a steep cut away on the rear to maximise the departure angle. 1200 watts of solar panels and a 3kW inverter deliver enough amps for the air conditioning, hot water and lighting systems. A diesel heater will keep it toastie on those chilly desert nights. Solar panels and batteries deliver maximum independence.

The habitation box is insulated against chassis torque with 12 heavy-duty springs which allow the body to flex independently of the truck.

The first unit is now on the road and available for road test, and an additional Eurocargo chassis is on order for the next build. The total price is not for the faint-hearted but represents a value proposition for the heavy overseas demand for this level of off-road adventure vehicles.
