2021 caravanning holidays are on! Sites are set to reopen from 12 April so it's time to prepare for the new season! As well as making sure that your caravan is ship-shape and ready to go, have you considered if you have all you need for a smooth, hassle-free trip?
Whether you’re new to caravanning or have been doing it for years, it's always good to check you have all you need ahead of time. There are a number of accessories that are essential to making your trips that little bit easier, as well as those that are just nice to have! Check you have all the vital things and consider if you’d like to update any of your existing items such as new homeware, towels or bedding.
10 ESSENTIAL ACCESSORIES
Power cable - enabling you to hook up to the electrical supply and make use of all your creature comforts.
Leisure battery - get power when electrical hook up is not an option.
BBQ - great for cooking a range of tasty meals.
Camping chairs - make the most of the great outdoors!
Awning - double your footprint with an awning and let the kids run loose, even in wet weather!
Water carriers - an absolute must-have for life on the caravan site.
Fire extinguisher - better safe than sorry, these are handy at tackling small flames.
Kettle - everyone likes a good cuppa!
Bedding - a good night’s sleep is imperative - choose between duvets and sleeping bags and don’t forget your pillows!
Cleaning kit - keep your caravan looking fresh and clean with our range of cleaning products.
KIT OUT YOUR KITCHEN
Make sure you have everything you need to run a fully-functioning kitchen! There are many caravan-friendly kitchen items available, everything from melamine crockery, non-breakable cups and compact saucepans to cookware, Tupperware and every cooking utensil you can think of!
MAKE A SPLASH
Make the most of having a washroom onboard (no communal showers for you!) by filling it with all the must-have items such as dispensers, mirrors and fluffy towels.
TAKE A SEAT
There’s nothing better than sitting outside on a warm summer’s evening with a drink in hand. Caravanning holidays give you instant access to the outdoors so make the most of it! Invest in some decent outdoor furniture to make mealtimes and chill times that little bit more comfortable.
A BBQ is a nice addition to the standard caravan kitchen, offering a variety of meal options, particularly in the warmer months when outdoor cooking is more of a pleasure. We stock a range of Cadac BBQs along with everything you could need to stoke the fire...
INJECT A BIT OF COLOUR
Your caravan is your home from home so why not make it your own with a few cushions and throws in your favourite colours? You can then snuggle up on cooler evenings and enjoy your surroundings.
An awning is one of the best investments you can make - after buying the caravan of course! A full awning can double your footprint and give you bags of extra living and storage space. They’re great for more spacious indoor dining if the weather’s bad and for giving the kids a bit of room to play in.
SAFE AND SECURE
We supply a great range of security devices including Milenco steering wheel locks, wheel locks, hitch locks and door locks. These are all high quality products from very reputable brands, so you can rest easy on your travels.
For all you techies - yes there are gadgets designed just for caravan use, so go on - treat yourself! From TVs to kettles and toasters there are plenty of low wattage appliances that you can purchase to keep your power usage down. We also have a great selection of handheld torches and lights which are very powerful and useful for getting around the campsite at night.
There are hundreds of items that you could buy to make your caravanning experience that little bit easier. After some investigation, you’ll soon realise which ones are the most important to you! We stock everything from electrical hook up cables, leisure batteries, water carriers and cool boxes to caravan steps, windbreaks and portable clothes airers.
Our on-site accessory shop stocks over 5,000 products, so please pop in and take a look when we reopen on 12 April! In the meantime, why not browse our online shop? We have a range of products available and we’re adding more every week! Check out our awning ranges online too and get in touch if you need further information.
