Now, if you're aware of how they do things down in Australia, then you know what to expect from this habitat. If you don't, all you need to know is that a 3.5-ton independent arm suspension from Tuff Ride is in place and supports a steel chassis. Aluminum composite cladding is used for the shell skin, but, and here's how Kokoda is able to keep the price so low, everything sits upon a Meranti (wood) frame, which isn't a bad idea, as long as you have solid insulating techniques. Stone guards wrap the lower half of the exterior, helping raise the level of protection while romping around.
But, who the heck cares about the exterior of this bugger? Australians surely do, but we'll touch upon that aspect shortly. For now, let's focus on the living you can access with Force 2. After all, it's the interior styling and layout that really drew me to this bugger.
Personally, I think its features and spaces, like the massive beam-to-beam U-shaped lounge at the rear of this bugger. Oh, come nighttime, this space can be transformed into a bedding area. This area also seems large enough for all guests aboard, but also a straggler or two who you befriend on your adventures.
As we continue to the front of Force 2, you may feel like you're in a hotel room or some fresh Airbnb. While heading toward the two-person bedroom at the front, you'll pass features like the washing machine, hidden in the furniture, a massive and clean-cut kitchen that makes the one in my home look cheap, and a bathroom the likes of those found in motorhomes priced over $100K American. Oh, and remember the split layout of the latter; you'll love it when the whole gang comes back from their dust-filled adventures.
For a moment, take a minute to imagine yourself in the center of all the action you see. Feel the upholstery. Take in the flush overhead storage bins and countertops too. As you sip your morning coffee, you'll be hit with rays of sunlight through the windows tattered all over the shell, and as it moves overhead throughout the day, skylights keep the interior well-lit and your bones warm.
Earlier, I mentioned that Australians like to do things a tad differently in terms of outdoor living, and that's true. What this means for you and a soon-to-be-yours Force 2 is a habitat that invites you to spend time outdoors. It's got awnings, fold-out picnic tables, pass-through storage, and even a TV mount. With a few lawn chairs and another table, your campsite is ready. Why not lit a fire and enjoy a round of s'mores?
And all that's not even the end of things; the list of available systems and features is quite extensive, not to mention an array of optional gear too. By the time you're done putting together your dream unit, you'll be sure to have dished out a tad more cash than the starting price, and that's ok; look at the results, for god's sake! A haven on wheels, indeed.
