Vehicles and trailers
Toyota Hiluxes are the workhorse of the vehicle fleet. A long wheel base transit with a HIAB crane provides lifting power for engine changes 'in the field'. Every Rib has a dedicated four wheel braked trailer maintained and serviced by SRC. Even the 15m flagship 'Galaxy' is road transportable without an escort.
