Last Updated on March 2, 2023 by Christina

With multiple awards and industry-leading innovations, Forest River‘s IBEX has quickly become a crowd favorite in RV circles. Four new floorplans debuted this year, making these RVs a prime example of features and amenities designed to make every trip comfortable, convenient and enjoyable.

IBEX campers are 7-foot or 8-foot wide and weigh well under 10,000 pounds. As a lighter weight RV, IBEX prides itself on being one of the best for SUVs and smaller trucks. In addition, all 2023 IBEXs come standard with the industry-leading Beast Mode Suspension from Curt. This axle-less design allows adaptive and independent movement, making tough terrain a breeze. The system also contains nitrogen-filled shocks and coil springs for smoother and safer towing.

A new standard on IBEX is the steel inner fender wheel well that will protect your RV from tire blowouts and debris. This, along with top-end Goodyear Wrangler tires, makes the IBEX one of the safest RVs to tow. Every IBEX is also constructed with Azdel composite material instead of plywood. This means your RV’s exterior is better protected from water, weather and noise. Plus, it is half the weight of plywood constructed RVs.

Standard features inside the 2023 IBEXs include a JBL Flip 5 wireless Bluetooth speaker for great sound wherever you go. Every IBEX has a queen-sized bed – even floorplans with Murphy beds! Each RV also comes equipped with a cold weather package, including a heated and enclosed underbelly, tank pad heaters and an enclosed termination system.

The power system of the IBEX is impressive for off-grid camping. The Unplugged Package features three RELiON Insight Series batteries, a Smart Remote operating system with Insight fuel gauge and much more. Each IBEX is also equipped with a solar power system and a robust power system that allows 110V outlets to be used while dry camping (camping with limited or no hookups). That means your CPAP machine, laptop and other AC power appliances are available no matter where you are.

One of the standout floorplans for 2023 is the IBEX 10LHG. This toy hauler travel trailer is the first RV of the Little Horn 10 series. Weighing less than 4,000 pounds, this will be their lightest RV yet. It’s perfect for SUVs or smaller trucks. This standout RV is 13′ 10″ long and seven feet tall, which makes it a breeze to tow.

The exterior of the RV features a 270-degree batwing awning from Rhino-Rack. There are also side panels to add more privacy and keep rain out. The batwing awning is attached to Vortex bars on the RVT tracks, allowing easy setup and tear down. These RVT tracks allow you to haul gear on the roof with ease. There is also a rooftop tent for additional sleeping space. The tent is great to use if you don’t want to unload your toys while on the road to the next destination.

The fenders of the RV double as step stools to reach the gear on your roof. Since it’s attached to the frame, it has a 300 pound capacity. It can also be used as a table or prep station

The kitchen is on the exterior of 10LHG and features a two-burner cooktop, Truma refrigerator/freezer and bottle opener. A spacious outside pantry, with a prep station and removable dump sink, is right by the kitchen. Another amazing feature of the 10LHG is the 30-gallon fresh water tank, which can be found in larger IBEX models. Plus, there’s a 30-foot spray hose for washing dishes, your toys and even your RV.

A great feature on the garage door is the dovetail for toys with low clearance. The rear ramp door also has a screen to let the breeze in while you’re camping. The garage area is 55” tall, perfect for hauling ATVs, dirt bikes, motorcycles and other small toys. There are also entry doors on both sides of the RV, allowing easy access to your gear.

Inside the 10LHG is a lounger set that doubles as a queen-size bed. There are also two folding dinette tables and cup holders on the wall. Other great features include a full-sized air conditioner with a heater, allowing you to camp later into the season. You’ll also find great storage in the front of the RV, with a wardrobe, storage and lockbox. With all this leading technology and design, RVBusiness has given it the 2023 Notable Innovation award.


The newest layout in the 7-foot wide line is the 19MSB. This travel trailer is packed with many automotive-grade features; from the panoramic front window to the diamond plate rock guard on the front end.

On the roof, there are Rhino-Rack RVT tracks for gear storage like kayaks and larger gear. The 19QBH also comes standard with a bush kitchen, prep station and spray port on the door side with a 30-foot hose. This is great for washing muddy boots, pets or even your RV.

The interior is a beautiful cinder color palette with live edge countertops throughout. Inside the bunkhouse, there is a true queen bed in the front and enough sleeping space for six people. There is a large chaise dinette with a removable table. This dinette can also turn into a longue. The bunks in the rear are rated for 300 pounds, which is great for both kids and adults.

Instead of carpet, the flooring is resilient vinyl flooring, as well as vinyl furniture that is stain, water and scratch resistant. These great features keep your RV looking nice. The central vac system also makes cleaning up hair and dirt a breeze. Simply lift the little door with your foot to turn it on and just sweep in the mess.

The kitchen has a deep stainless steel sink, sink cover, two burner cooktop and convection microwave oven. The 19QBH also features industry-leading refrigerator space and plenty of storage for snacks.

The rear bathroom has a wardrobe with a lock box to keep your valuables safe. The full-sized shower features a Showermiser system. This allows you to conserve your water, by not letting it run until it gets hot.


The IBEX 20MDS is the newest eight-foot wide lightweight travel trailer. It’s on an 8-foot wide body and still well under 10,000 pounds. Plus, it’s only 23’ 9” long.
