Our Business is manufacturing 4x4 Buses & Specialized Heavy Vehicles — and off road vehicles are all we do At All Terrain Warriors we manufacture 4x4 buses and coaches from 12 to 37 seats and have done so for over 20 years. All Terrain Warriors 4x4 range of eco-tour buses are purposely built so as to offer maximum viewing opportunity for all passengers. With large, heavily tinted windows and the rear of the 4x4 truck cab cutaway, forward and lateral vision is absolutely maximized. We don’t just build a square box with seats and mount it to a chassis as if it were a pantec and call it a bus. We have uniquely designed bodies that are shaped that way for a purpose... off-road travel and actually being able to enjoy the experience. We roll under all below floor level body panels and storage compartments to avoid damage in this vulnerable area when on deep rutted tracks with high banks. We taper in the section above the window sills to avoid tree damage, again when on deep rutted tracks the vehicle lays over to one side. With a conventional square bus body, the roof section can be thrown out into the tree line causing major damage. Also on all of our wider buses, the body tapers back in at seat rail height. This is to tuck in the lower body as tightly as possible to the wheeltracks. It’s not until you experience these conditions when four wheel driving that you will appreciate the innovations a ATW 4x4 bus has.
Back in the 1980’s we used to panel our buses with steel zinc and aluminium sheets as most bus builders still do. We found these buses to be prone to denting, required constant resealing of the joints and were generally hard to maintain. Because we built so many beach vehicles to operate in extremely corrosive conditions, we saw the need to develop new fibreglass and composite construction methods. We found these composite panels to be dent and corrosive proof and so tough...........perfect for off-road commercial operations. As examples, we have tour vehicles that have operated for many years in the extreme climate of Central Australia, others continuously running on the horrendous road conditions and corrugations of Cape York….lasting over 12 years on the beach at Fraser Island......all with glowing reports of the superiority of our construction methods over previous vehicles with conventional metal clad bodies. The way in which the body is mounted to the chassis is also paramount for any 4x4 vehicle. The high stress build up in bodies that are solidly fixed to a 4x4 chassis in serious off road conditions is tremendous. Therefore all our buses incorporate a unique spring mounting system that allows the chassis and the body to separate if they need to.....greatly reducing stress and loads between chassis and body and therefore eliminating costly structural failure. The unique body mounting system also allows the bus modules to be easily swapped to a new replacement chassis once the service life of the original has been reached. All electrical and air con lines are setup with this in mind. As a result, bus bodies that see long service in the extremely corrosive environment such as Fraser Island will outlast up to four new cab / chassis!!!!
Always think of an All Terrain Warriors bus body as a low maintenance, long term asset that will save a business thousands of dollars over a 10 year period or longer when other 4x4 vehicles would need to be completely replaced many times over.
