Offroad Caravan with ample storage.

The 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 pantry drawer right beside the kitchen takes care of storage for cooking needs and utensils can be kept in the cutlery draw beneath.

Within easy reach is a fold down table for added preparation room or serving meals.

The front storage hatch has a huge fridge slide to carry the popular family size fridges. On the opposite side is a large storage for those extra camping necessities

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

The bunk bed is sturdy and long enough for taller kids with handy 12 volt and USB to power tablets and phones.

For comfort on cold nights, the Forbes 12+ is 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 13+ 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 batteries powered by the 300-watt roof mounted solar panels. 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. There’s even an inverter to power smaller 240-volt items

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 Tough Trax 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 13+, it’s light weight, packed with features and off road ready for your next adventure.
