The front storage hatch has a huge fridge slide to carry the popular family size fridges. On the opposite side is a large storage area for those extra camping necessities. Inside the van is a generous size 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 mattress is 200 millimetres thick, with a comfy pillow top for a great night's sleep. The bunk beds are sturdy, and long enough for taller kids, with handy 12 volt and USB power outlets for tablets and phones.The dinette itself can be folded down and turned into another bunk. This is what makes the Forbes 15 plus suitable for five people. For comfort on cold nights, the Forbes 15 plus is fitted with a diesel heater as standard. For hot summer days, the Dometic air conditioner keeps you cool and comfy along with sirocco fans. 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 three 100 amp deep cycle batteries powered by the 300-watt roof-mounted solar panels. Power management is taken care of with a projector IDC 25 controller, which 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 Projector seven stage charger will charge and condition your batteries quickly and continuously. All these great features mean nothing unless you put them on the MDC chassis and off-road suspension package. The chassis is fully engineered in solid works to ensure it is strong and durable. Fitted with MDC's Tough Trax coil sprung trailing arm suspension and twin big bore shock absorbers, you're ready to tackle the wilds of the Australian Outback with absolute confidence.Annex is available as well for hire $150 to add another room that is protected from the elements.
