Following on from the huge success of the Discovery 14ft Hybrid and the 10ft Scorpion Micro Hybrid we are now introducing the latest model to our hybrid range the 15ft Defender Hybrid.
The Defender features a full size internal ensuite with shower and toilet, push button electric roof opening, expanding external gourmet kitchen, huge wind out awning and plenty of internal and external storage areas.
The first thing you notice when entering the Defender is the huge sense of space, through clever design we have created the largest internal space of any hybrid within the 15ft hybrid sector. With a north south queen size bed, a comfortable 4 seater lounge and large internal ensuite (toilet & shower) the defender is sure to appeal to those wanting to experience the outback without leaving the comforts of home behind.
Quick and easy set-up is the name of the game with the Defender, drop down the stabaliser legs, wind out the awning and slide out the kitchen. With its automatic push button roof opening you will be set up with a glass of wine in your hand in minutes.
As with the rest of the Rhinomax hybrid range the Defender is constructed from 30mm thick high density fibreglass composite walls and roof panelling, which create a high strength body with superior insulation qualities. Step into a Defender on a hot day and it immediately becomes evident how much cooler it is on the inside.
The Defender combines a light tare weight (1720kg) with a low-ball weight (120kg) to give one of the largest payloads (780kg) within the 15ft hybrid sector. This coupled with a 4WD width of under 2 metres gives a superior towing experience and means the Defender will follow in the tracks of your tow vehicle.
Designed using state of the art 3d software and created using our teams accumulated experience in the aerospace and high precision engineering industries. Manufactured using only the very best methods including full galvanised off road chassis, class leading Cruisemaster independent suspension, tig welded aluminium and reinforced insulated fiberglass panels. why compromise and buy anything else?
