White Rhino Base Camp

We have been asked for this list - and here it is. Sorry if there are errors or omissions. Sometimes doing it in a hurry among other work is better than not doing it at all. We have a number of these pre-sold so get in fast to secure an early 2020 start date. Don't be slow to make a decision - only to find you are behind others. Remember, each person in front of you delays your build by 4 months. We will work with you to ensure you are making the right decision in a timely fashion.

We are massively disappointed to have finally viewed the 2020 IFS Iveco. As such we are desperate to secure one of the few remaining, current solid axle MY14 chassis for our customers. As little as 1k will secure your truck while we develop the detailed spec with you. However, when the current trucks are gone, EVA will be moving away from Iveco. Our suggestion is to secure a chassis for a 100K deposit, and have your build number secured. EVA will not be working on the IFS chassis no matter ho 'good' others think it is.

Obviously we will still support the solid axle versions, and maintain our inventory for motorhome or build customers.

 

Rather than offer a basic version and complicate our builds which adds cost, we have decided to start with a very high level base, at the right price.

Module;

Quality, first in industry CAD designed and CNC manufactured plugs / moulds / tooling developed in-house. 2000hrs of CAD time alone, this is a special unit. We hand-lay the body to maximise strength and reduce weight. The composite lay-up is engineered and uses hydrolysis free PVC foam rather than the industry norm of polyurethane. The roof is shaped like a tap-measure for stiffness as generally, roof sag is a major issue in fiberglass units.

  • Canvas Sock for improved wear over vinyl, seals better from rain as the stitching holes swell and it does not act as a lantern at night - attracting bugs. This is easily removable and able to be installed by the customer without tools. Dual zips at the front allow for roof rack access
  • LED tail lights match 'edgy' theme, side-scrolling for indicator flash.
  • EVA offer the Largest walk-through in the industry, sealed with USA manufactured accordion rubber.
  • Our sub chassis is manufactured in lightweight aluminium, and 3 point mounted for absolutely neutral loading. No springs to overcome, and exclusive to EVA.
  • Security screen by Crimsafe, installed to TIG welded alloy frame.
  • EVA ALULITE kitchen made in-house for exacting fit and purpose. Designed in Solidworks for perfect performance. Sealed bearings to slides, for 80% drawer extension. European made slides, no gritty multi-ball races here! Four massive 500x5550x180mm powdercoated aluminium drawers, and one 500x550x100mm slim top cutlery drawer. Induction cooktop by Ecopot. (Webasto diesel a reluctant option).
  • Cafe 'booth' seats for dining, with fibreglass moulded EVA table. Cultured gel coat matches the kitchen. The table is fitted to Lagun table mount. Seat backs fold down for Rifle storage.
  • Like a yacht, the internal shower is built inside module by an experienced shipwright, leak-proof and light-weight. Being glassed on is structurally superior, and significantly lighter to glued in mouldings, as the shower becomes a bulkhead supporting the external walls. Keeping the walls stiff improves roof sealing.

  • Quality hand shower head by BLA, plumbing installed with John Guest fittings.
