15YR EDITION FEATURES

TRAIL ASSURE STABILITY CONTROLLER

Trail-Assure incorporates an asymmetric system in which it can accurately apply individual brakes compared to other sway controllers in the markets that apply brakes on both sides, which isn’t as effective. The unit automatically calculates and applies the appropriate braking solution where sway exceeds a safe level, reducing and controlling the trailer sway. This in turn results in the driver not having to intervene, providing a safer experience.

PROJECTA BATTERY MONITOR

Monitor your battery and power consumption in real time by using the Projecta Battery Monitor. Featuring a sleek back-lit display, you can check your power usage at any time. Pair the battery monitor via Bluetooth with the Projecta App and have all the information directly on your device. The App provides real-time information on voltage, power consumption, time, capacity remaining, temperature, and more.

LIFEPRO+® LITHIUM BATTERY

The LiFePRO+® Lithium Iron Phosphate battery range provides unparalleled performance, durability, and off-grid capabilities within the lithium deep cycle battery technology space. Equipped with an internal battery management system (BMS) that continually monitors and optimises its prismatic cells during use, the LiFePRO+® internal BMS also protects the battery from fault conditions such as overcharge, over-discharge and short circuits.

REAR VIEW CAMERA

Visibility whilst towing and reversing is always a challenge. With a caravan in tow, your blind spots are larger which can make it difficult to safely change lanes, overtake or reverse. A rear-view camera fitter to your caravan can significantly improve visibility making your towing experience stress-free. The wireless rear view camera fitted by MDC provides the ultimate all-in-one kit that allows an increase in visibility, manoeuvrability, and independence. MDC owners can now escape with more confidence.

MDC COUPLING LOCK

The MDC-LOK is designed and manufactured to deter the theft of your caravan. Its unique design allows it to be used both with a Cruisemaster DO-35 coupling as well as with the MDC Polyblock Coupling. The MDC-LOK is an easy-to-use device and takes only seconds to fit to your coupling.

SUPERB AFTER SALES SERVICE
Read More
"We took delivery of a Forbes 12+ on Friday. We were very pleasantly surprised by the superb after sales service. We had an issue with our tow bar, it was well past closing time on a Friday afternoon, however Mark and April went above and beyond to ensure we took delivery of our new van. The fit and finish of the van is excellent; whilst we hope it will be some years before we need to purchase a new van, MDC in Welshpool will be number 1 on our list. I can say without hesitation that we would purchase again from them."
