Reversing Easily With A Rear View Camera:
Reversing a caravan can be an ordeal, particularly if you a newbie. With a reversing camera you can do it like a pro, reversing your caravan easily without any hiccups or laughter from the sidelines. This is one of the high-tech caravan accessories that makes a great gift for yourself or a friend.
Producing Energy With Solar Panels:
Increasing the amount of power you can produce on the road is a great idea and solar panels have become popular for this very reason. They are essential if you are holidaying in the outback, but are also ideal when free camping or if you don’t want to pay for a powered site every night.
Watching TV With Satellite Dishes:
This is one of those non-essential caravan accessories that you can do without, but can also make your evenings more interesting. You will need to research satellite dishes to make sure you buy one big enough to receive a good signal in the outback and be prepared to pay a pretty penny for one too!
Getting Yourself Out Of Trouble With A Tool Kit:
Make sure to carry wheel braces, wrenches, screwdrivers, an air compressor, tyre sealant and a spare tyre that’s in good condition. The more of these emergency caravan accessories you carry with you, the easier it will be to get yourself on the road again.
Making Yourself Comfortable With Heating And Cooling:
If you want to be comfortable in your caravan, your best options are either rechargeable fans and heaters (that can also be plugged into mains power at campsites) or a portable gas heater that uses propane.
Keeping Your Toilet Clean And Hygienic:
There are plenty of products available on the market, depending on whether your toilet uses the caravan’s water tank to supply water for flushing or not. These chemicals are essential caravan accessories if you use an onboard toilet, just do some research before you make your purchase.
Managing Your Fresh And Grey Water:
Treat yourself to a wheeled fresh water container, so you don’t need to carry water back to your caravan from the tap. You also need a grey water container that needs to be emptied regularly, and a wheeled container is a great option here as well.
Managing Your Storage Needs:
Consider collapsible crates, stacked shoe racks and hooks on walls for additional storage. You can also purchase a rear mounted storage box or treat yourself to a custom storage option to maximise the storage space in your caravan.
Keeping Everything Safe And Secure:
Wheel clamps, hitch locks, alarms and tracking devices are all important caravan accessories that provide additional security for your caravan and belongings. There are so many different options available on the market, you will easily find one or more that suits your needs and budget.
Proving Shade Outdoors With Awnings:
These are a great addition to your caravan, providing shade for the harsh sun and protection from rain, allowing you to put your feet up and relax without returning to the caravan.
With these top 10 caravan accessories, you should be just about guaranteed to have a perfect holiday next time you hit the road.
