When you’re working in a difficult, harsh and isolated location, you want to know that your vehicles will be reliable and safe. You need equipment that will work, spaces that will provide comfort, and crew that will be able to thrive in the Australian outback. This is where exploration caravans come into play. When you are looking for a mobile shelter to get you to where you need to go, provide ease of life whilst you are there, and facilitate a comfortable return: Allways Caravans is here to help.
What is An Exploration Caravan?
Exploration caravans, also known as worksite caravans, are caravans designed to give employees an opportunity to stay at their job site, as opposed to travelling back and forth from their homes to location.
What is Included?
Exploration caravans, like domestic caravans, are fully self-contained. However, unlike domestic caravans, they tend to be larger, as they are made with a different goal in mind. Exploration caravans are likely to have 3 or 4 separate bedrooms, alongside a living or dining area. Although the degrees of luxury varies from caravan to caravan – some may have satellite televisions in each room – all caravans are equipped with a fully functional kitchen and bathroom. They may also come with air-conditioners and laundry machines.
Similar to houses, exploration caravans are fitted with smoke and fire alarms, as well as fire extinguishers and blankets. Some caravans also come with a breakaway switch. Should the caravan be separated from the towing vehicle, the caravan brakes will be activated as a result of the switch.
At Alltrax Caravans, all our caravans come with single, dual axel or tri-axle configurations. They are fully galvanised to last in unpredictable environments, with 4mm beams for superior structural strength, and to ensure comfort and maximised work performance, all our caravans come with air conditioning: which truly is essential in the Australian heat.
What are Their Uses?
Long-term travelling, especially on dirt roads and in low light conditions, can result in fatigue and lower productivity, as well as employee dissatisfaction. That’s why employers invest in exploration caravans. Instead of travelling for long periods of time, workers can have a place to stay on-site, keeping them comfortable and happy whilst they work.
At the same time, different companies have different needs and as such use exploration caravans in different ways. Some companies use them as a way to maximise the bed capacity of their remote worksite, whilst others require caravans to handle multiple functions due to the limited availability of tow vehicles.
Our caravans are used in a variety of industries. We ensure to test them for design and toughness, making them suitable for any location, in any Australian environment. They are especially popular amongst mining and exploration camp facilities, as well as offices and ablution trailers for government and local councils. However, even seasonal fruit pickers engage with exploration caravans during harvest seasons.
