The Defender has the biggest outdoor entertainment area in the Rhinomax range with its large, awning (4.5m x 2.5m) providing plenty of shade and protection from the elements. The awning can be equipped with a shade awning, windbreak walls or a fully enclosed annex to transform the outdoor area into sheltered base-camp providing protection and privacy.

Set up in minutes
Quick and easy setup is the name of the game with the Defender. Park up, drop down the stabiliser legs, wind out the awning and slide out your kitchen, raise the roof and you’re all set up in a matter of minutes. The Defender makes arriving at your destination a pleasurable experience.
The star of the show, the Defender’s kitchen is considered one of the best ergonomically designed gourmet kitchens in the industry. It slides out effortlessly and expands to reveal a huge bench space.
Coupled with a huge fridge slide and deep pantry draw as well as two huge drawers that slide into the body, you won’t be short of storage.
The kitchen unit itself features a three-burner stove, hot/cold mixer tap, pantry drawers for utensils and nearly a meter of bench space making it one of the most comprehensive and easy to use kitchens.
Large internal en suite
The Defender boasts the industry’s largest internal en suite cubicle featuring a full-size shower tray along with the RV industries most popular cassette toilet system, plus options for the leading water-less composting toilet. An 85lt grey water collection tank also comes standard with an easy release valve for emptying.
Complete with an extra wide fiberglass door for easier entry, the en suite can be zipped up to provide total privacy.
Large storage areas
If you’re looking for endless storage then look no further, the Defender has the largest storage capacity in its class.
With a range of large external body compartments and a drawbar mounted tunnel boot front box plus a lockable gas bottle box and twin jerry can holders, the Defender is in a league of its own when it comes to available space.
There’s no shortage of storage on the inside either with a large rear drawer cabinet and 2 large under bed drawers, you’ll find plenty of room for all your clothing and other items.
Largest internal space in class
Thanks to our innovative design and clever use of space, the internal layout of the Defender is much more spacious than most other hybrids in its class. Comfortable and well equipped, the Defender provides ample space for four adults and is light and airy on the inside with plenty of head room and space to move about. It’s insulated composite fiberglass walls and roof allow it to stay much cooler inside than most caravans. Step into a Defender on a hot day and it immediately becomes evident how much cooler it is on the inside.
