ToastaVan is paving the way for the future of on-site living standards with ISO certified, custom-outfitted vans that are higher-quality and more mobile than anything else out there, to suit your specific industry needs.

As raised by a Western Mine Workers Alliance survey of 700 FIFO mineworkers, 75% of people rate their mining camps as poor quality, as a result of minimum standards across the industry. 

As the first and only company in the Australian RV industry to attain triple ISO accreditation, ToastaVan’s custom-built, RVSA-approved mobile workers’ accommodation, offices, crib rooms and kitchens exist as a high-quality, sustainable solution to this industry-wide problem. 

Not only is ToastaVan ISO certified in Quality, Environment and OHS standards, but they also do all the hard yards for you in terms of making your investment mine spec standard. 

As an RV Solutions brand, ToastaVan is backed by the largest caravan workshop in WA, and a highly qualified team with unparalleled industry experience.

Simply place an order with their team and you’ll receive a mobile van ready to be brought straight on to your camp, with all the correct paperwork provided to get your new investment approved on site.

With the Western Mine Workers Alliance pushing to introduce legislated minimum industry standards around many important camp areas, including food, the need for special attention to on-site kitchen quality is more critical than ever.

Thanks to ToastaVan’s kitchens being completely mobile and meeting any mine spec standards required, a high-quality kitchen has become a much more feasible option – one that will benefit your entire team, pave the way to raising industry standards, and be an investment you can move around with you for years to come.
