As travellers have become more adventurous and looking to venture into more remote and usually rugged locations, they need a caravan with the capabilities to get them there and allow them to live 'off-the-grid'. The caravan industry has stayed in lockstep with market demand and developments in technology, construction materials and techniques are resulting in amazing hybrid caravans which make these off-road ventures possible.
At Jade Caravan Finance, we’ve also stayed in lockstep with our caravan customers and our loan products extend across the full range of caravan types including hybrids. When opting for a hybrid, buyers have the choice of a number of local manufacturers including MDC Camper Trailers. MDC has been producing hybrid caravans for over 10 years and we take a look at their current offerings.
While most caravan manufacturers tend to have a workshop factory facility and sell via a dealer network, MDC actually has 11 showrooms which are located across Australia, making it relatively easy for buyers to connect directly and in person with the makers.
MDC manufacturers offers an extensive range of camper trailers and rugged off road caravans including a number of hybrid models.
The Compact Hybrid
One of the current compact models in the MDC hybrid range is the XT 12. This is an off-road caravan which is designed and manufactured with the features and inclusions to allow you to make the most of your travelling adventures.
- Fold-out rear which is easy to set up
- Queen sized bed which is quick to set up and includes innerspring mattress and pillow top
- Extensive storage with internal cupboards
- Swivel table dinette.
- Ensuite shower room and toilet.
- Acrylic, double-skin windows which the company claim provide better insulation.
- Air-conditioning and diesel heater are optional upgrades.
- Outdoor kitchen with 4-burner gas cooktop, sink and plumbed water.
- Solar power standard which can be charged while driving.
- 80 litre grey water and 40 litre fresh water tanks.
- Galvanised chassis, independent trailing arm suspension, dual shock absorbers.
For those wanting a larger hybrid, MDC offer the XT 12 Extreme model. This is a hybrid of a camper trailer-pop-top, off-road 12 foot caravan. This has double bunk accommodation, heaps of storage compartments, an internal en-suite, 4 burner stove and is designed to be towed with a 4WD vehicle. So with your MDC off-road hybrid you’ll be equipped to go down tracks that conventional caravans are usually too large and ill-equipped to handle. Tracks that may provide access to places of amazing natural wonders.
Loans for Hybrid Caravans
While some banks and lenders don’t even offer specialised caravan loans and may balk at the sheer mention of a ‘hybrid’, Jade Caravan Finance is up to speed with this model range and provides loan offers on hybrid vans.
We are accredited with multiple banks and lenders including those that do understand and specialise in recreational vehicle lending.

The lender accepts the hybrid as security against the loan, so in most cases, no additional deposit is requested by the lender.

- Cheap caravan interest rates, fixed for the entire loan term.
- Fixed monthly repayments.
- Fixed loan terms.
- Personalised service to save you time, hassle and money – your Jade consultant will handle the loan process on your behalf.
Pre-Prepare with a Pre-Approved Loan
Many caravans are built to order. So many buyers like to know that their finance is confirmed prior to opening discussions with a manufacturer around the design and inclusions of their van. Jade Caravan Finance provides a pre-approved loan service to assist buyers in this regard.
This type of loan is arranged based on an estimate of the purchase price or our customer’s budget limit. It is usually quite easy to receive a price guide on models from manufacturers’ websites so you have a loan estimate to brief your Jade consultant.
Your consultant will proceed with our normal loan application process based on this estimate through to the approvals stage. At this stage, there is no obligation to proceed if you change your mind in regard to the purchase. But you’ll know your finance is assured and can confidently proceed with your order. When you finalise the exact purchase price, your consultant finalises the loan based on the corrected loan amount.
Pre-approved loans are extremely popular as more and more caravan buyers appreciate how helpful they are in expediting their hybrid purchase and providing certainty around budgeting.
