Family Hybrid Offroad Caravan

For many years, what’s been missing in lightweight off-road caravans, is a caravan that will fit a family of five. MDC have taken great care of that with the Forbes 15 plus. Built on a tough chassis and off-road suspension, this little beauty will take you to the ends of the Outback with ease. This great looking van is lightweight and built on the proven MDC chassis. The body is built with a welded aluminium frame and bonded composite panel, making it extremely strong.

There is no shortage of great features in the Forbes 15 plus. An electric awning is standard, and the awning can also be converted into an enclosed annex using the annex kit. 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 drawer beneath. Within easy reach is a fold down table for added preparation room or serving meals.
