For the Forbes 12+ Offroad Caravan

External Features

The Forbes 12+ is wrapped in an array of external features designed to make camping more comfortable. A large external fridge slide, gourmet outdoor kitchen with fold down table and electric awning make for comfy outdoor living. Ample front boot and side storage ensure you can take all the necessities for camping comfort while external lighting makes it a night and day activity.




Lightweight, packed with features

The electric awning comes with a fully enclosed annex providing plenty of outside space for entertaining.

The high-grade stainless-steel kitchen is a gourmet’s delight with high BTU burners and auto ignition, a kitchen surround for windy conditions that doubles as a drying rack and hot and cold water plumbed to the sink.

A large drawer right beside the kitchen takes care of storage for cooking needs and utensils can be kept in the slide out cutlery drawer built into the kitchen.

Within easy reach is also a great slide out pantry with 2 shelves built into the body, that can be accessed from both inside and outside the van.

The front storage box is a leader in this class of caravan with a huge fridge slide to carry the popular family size fridges. On the opposite side is a large storage area for maybe a generator and on top a large flat space for poles and longer items.

Inside the van is a generous sized ensuite with shower and toilet making off grid camping a pleasure. The 14 litre Truma hot water system provides hot water at the flick of a switch. The Forbes 12+ also comes with two x 80 litre freshwater tanks and one x 80 litre Grey water tank for when you are free camping.

The innerspring queen size bed is 200mm thick with a comfy pillow top for a great night’s sleep.

The bunk bed is fitted with a sturdy ladder and safety rails to provide a sound and safe night’s sleep for your loved one. The bunk can be folded out of the way and ladder removed to make use of the dinette.

For comfort on cold nights, the Forbes 12+ is already fitted with a diesel heater as standard. For hot summer days you can choose to have your van supplied with the optional Dometic air conditioner to make your new Forbes 12+ an all year-round pleasure to camp in.

The clever use of storage space in this van ensures you can take all the necessary items for camping comfort.

There is plenty of power with 3 x 100ah AGM batteries powered by the 300-watt roof mounted solar system. Power management is taken care of with a Projecta IDC 25 controller which also manages the power input from your tow vehicle via the 50-amp Anderson plug.

If you’re connecting to mains or generator power, the Projecta 7 stage charger will charge and condition your batteries quickly and continuously.

All these great features are built on the trusted MDC chassis and off-road suspension package.

The chassis is fully engineered in Solidworks to ensure it is strong and durable. Fitted with MDC’s coil sprung trailing arm suspension and twin shock absorbers, you’re ready to tackle the wilds of the Australian outback with absolute confidence.

At MDC we are extremely proud of the Forbes 12+, lightweight, packed with features and off road ready for your next adventure.
