FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Where can I see your vehicles? I can’t find a dealer near me.
Provan Industries (that’s us) is a small, family-owned business. We don’t operate any dealerships or franchises, and sell our vehicles factory-direct from our headquarters in Columbia, South Carolina. We offer factory tours and vehicle showings by appointment here at our headquarters. For prospective customers who can’t join us here in Columbia, we have a terrific community of owners who are willing to show their vehicles to prospective buyers, and we do our best to find an owner in your geographic region to schedule a showing.
Can I build a Tiger on my Toyota Tundra, Nissan Titan, et cetera?
Afraid not. The only vehicles we can build on are one-ton, domestic trucks. This isn’t because of any dislike towards import trucks, but rather we simply need the higher gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) afforded by the heavier-duty one-ton chassis.
A lot of your vehicles are white. Is that the only color available?
Absolutely not! We can match the coach to any factory truck color currently available, so please pick a color you prefer. Of course, if you want to stick with white, we can do that too.
What about dualies? Most Tigers seem to be single-rear wheel vehicles.
Most of our customers prefer to go with a single-rear wheel configuration, so that option is most common. However, we’re happy to build a Tiger on a dual-rear wheel truck.
What about bed length? Can you build me a Tiger on my short-bed truck?
Unfortunately, we require a full 8-foot truck bed. Our coaches are fitted to a specific cab-to-rear-axle distance, and that requires the full 8-foot bed exactly.
Talk to me about truck cabin configurations.
No restrictions there! We can build your Tiger with a standard cab, extended cab, or full crew cab if you wish. The choice is yours.
Can I tow my boat or trailer?
Yes, your Tiger can safely tow up to 9,000 pounds.
Can I get from the truck to the coach without having to go outside?
Yes, unless you specify otherwise, all Tigers come with a pass-through that allows owners to climb from the front seats through into the main coach cabin. However, we don’t recommend doing so while the vehicle is in motion for safety reasons.
Can I still use my truck bed after building a Tiger?
Unfortunately, no, the Tiger coach is permanently mounted to the truck. Once a truck has become a Tiger, there is no going back (not that you’d want to!).
Can you use “X” component instead of “Y” in my build?
We’re always willing to entertain customization in Tiger builds. However, the components we select as standard are selected for a reason, and we reserve the right to refuse any customization requests that we feel won’t work or may cause reliability issues.
What’s the story on bathrooms?
All Tiger Adventure Vehicle coaches have a fully-enclosed bathroom with toilet. On the Bengal, it is a wet-bath with your choice of either traditional black tank or a composting toilet. Unfortunately, we cannot do a cassette toilet in the current Bengal design. The Malayan also has a full wet-bath, with a cassette toilet standard and a composting toilet available as well. The Siberian features a larger dry-bath, with a separate shower with a shower curtain. It comes standard with a cassette toilet and the composting toilet is available as well.
