ABOUT PIONEER VERVE TRAILER
INDUSTRY LEADING DESIGN
Our design philosophy is more than skin deep at Pioneer Campers and the Verve is no exception.
The walls and roof of the Verve are manufactured using our unique frameless design, which is lighter than conventionally clad vans and stronger than
fiberglass finishes. As we bond these walls we incorporate supports, joining fixtures and high density closed cell foam for insulation. There are no exposed edges because our paneling features return folds protecting all external edges and preventing water and dust ingress.
All panels are finished in a highly durable gloss powder coat and are riveted together externally using the skeletal supports. Reinforcements are
incorporated internally to allow for easy fitment of cabinetry and to further improve strength. This process also lends itself perfectly to the ‘full height’ design of the Verve as the roof an easily support the external accessories. It’s a time-proven manufacturing technique developed for the TRACK Tvan and is fully utilised across the entire TRACK range. You could say it’s in our DNA.
THERE'S MORE TO GREAT CHASSIS & SUSPENSION DESIGN THAN MEETS THE EYE
The Pioneer Verve features a custom designed chassis and uniquely tuned Trakmaster Trak-Two independent trailing arm coil suspension with twin shocks.
The reason why a ‘custom designed’ chassis and suspension matters is to ensure even weight distribution and a manageable ball load within the 10%-15% required to achieve good towing stability.
The suspension also takes into account the overall dimensions of the body, including height, and is tuned to reduce instances of sway during long corners or moments of wind buffeting such as by a passing truck. By managing these factors at the design stage, we can ensure that the Pioneer Verve will tow
superbly behind 4WDs that are appropriately specified.
The Pioneer Verve features a Hot Dipped Galvanised (HDG) chassis, the gold standard of corrosion protection and features a 393% increase in protection*, when compared to DuraGal® and similar alternativesoffered by other manufacturers.
The Pioneer Verve chassis is fully welded with Australian steel and hot-dipped (immersed in a bath of molten zinc 450°C). By comparison a DuraGal® manufactured chassis ends up with no zinc coating on enclosed welds and only a zinc rich paint on external welds.
*HDG provides a thicker protective zinc coating compared to alternatives and results in a minimum average coating of 390g/m2 inside and out and a minimum average coating thickness of 55-micron vs the commonly used DuraGal® at 100g/m2 or 14 micron of zinc on flat surfaces, meaning HDG is a 393% increase in protection in terms of micron thickness.
DAY TO DAY USE IS PRIORITISED BY DESIGN
The internal kitchen
The overhead lockers are large and offer generous amounts of space for pantry goods. The bench height is the same as most household benches to ensure
comfort while using. This is assisted by cut in kick panels (room for your feet) allowing you to stand closer to the bench. The rangehood is neatly concealed behind the overhead locker doors for a clean and consistent look.
Additionally, you can select which water tank you are using from inside the van, right at the kitchen. The internal kitchen space has a broad variety of options and configurations that allow you to fully customise the space swapping storage for cookers, microwaves and an internal fridge.
The ensuite is a large space with the biggest possible entry door featuring a flush roof mounted LED panel light and dimmer along with ventilation fan and hanging hooks. The toilet is a stand out, set at a comfortable height and easily accessible external cartridge. This is a deliberately simple system for easy use and minimal exposure to unnecessary second or third handling caused by other systems. For longer stays in between dump points, extra cartridges are available. The shower rose is fixed at head height and features a hot and cold flick mixer for easy use.
The bed is standard as an East/West orientation to maximise living space, dinette seating and allow for easy configuration of the bunk ption. However, this is fully customisable and can be a full queen size bed in the North/South configuration or win king single beds with a step through.
Any seat location can also be upgraded for additional storage. A full height wardrobe can be installed alongside the shower while a low 2-drawer benchtop system can be located in lieu of any seat. The table position changes to accommodate seat location.
The overhead lockers are secured with strong magnets (no locks required) and offer a surprisingly large amount of space. Towards the bed head end the lockers morph into quick storage for smaller items. In the case of a queen bed in the North/South configuration there are also two bed side consoles that offer generous storage.
Above door side seating you’ll find open storage with access to power for charging on the go. Below this is also perfect real estate for a map or photo board.
Large external pantry (~115L) with deep well-thoughtout shelves to accommodate a broad variety of food packaging. Featuring gas strut assisted door, LED light and compression seals with lock.
It’s a great place to keep cooking aids - paper towel, spices, oil as well as standard pantry items. Within minutes of using it, it’ll feel natural reaching up to the panty to get the things you need.
