The Scorpion Micro-Hybrid is a game-changer in the compact off road segment, packaging a go-anywhere high clearance chassis with the comforts of a queen size bed and 3 seater lounge dinette, all in a 10ft body.
The secret to its success is the north-south queen bed which cleverly lifts into the roof space during the day. And in doing so, exposes a comfortable 3 seater lounge dinette, making the best use of the available space.
Setup effort is a key advantage, simply pop the roof and rear ensuite, roll out the awning and drop the stabilisers. There’s no bulky canvas or bed to remake each time or wet flapping canvas. Thick, insulated, walls and roof keep you snug and isolated from the heat and cold, while providing extra security for you and your valuables. And a screen door with mesh provides a further security barrier while maximising air flow on warm nights.
Other premium internal features include a TIG-welded aluminium internal framework for strength and weight savings, a queen size inner spring mattress, comfortable 3 seater lounge dinette, rear storage unit with soft-close drawers, full LED lighting and a stereo/CD/MP3 system with dual speakers. The smart interior design even provides internal access to the portaloo for late night pit stops.
On the outside, there’s double glazed tinted windows with bug mesh and block-out blinds, a wind out awning, rear pop-up ensuite shower pod with hot and cold water, stainless steel kitchen (also with hot and cold water), pantry, fridge slide, plenty of lockable storage compartments, and a Raptor coated (like Rhinocoat) front storage box with integrated stone protection shielding the gas cylinders and jerry cans.
While comfort is important, so it the ability to explore into remote terrain. The foundation of the Scorpion is a hot dipped galvanised chassis rated to 2.5 tonnes, well beyond what most people carry, but engineered to carry a load if required. High clearance, independent coil suspension with dual shockers per wheel massage out the corrugations and twelve inch electric brakes take care of stopping duties.
Other inclusions: 110L water tank (extra 85L optional), external water drawer facility, dual 120Ah AGM batteries, 240V system, 300W of roof mounted solar, pure sine wave inverter, multi stage 240V battery charger, alloy wheels (steel wheels available), 16” all terrain tyres and more.
There are plenty of options including a dual zone fridge freezer, diesel heating, hubs to match the towing vehicle, extra water tank, wood carrier, seating options, awning wall kit and much more!
