We have been traveling full time in a caravan for 2 years.
In that time we have developed a list of our Favourite Items for the Caravan.
Number 5: Topargee Water Guage
When we became frustrated at the inaccuracies of the original water tank gauge we researched and came up with the solution of a Topargee Bluetooth gauge. Not having additional space in our “Control Centre” cupboard for another gauge, the Bluetooth and iPhone App version appealed to us.
Quickly installing the flow meter and control/transmitter pairing and setting usable litres was trouble free helps us when freedom camping.
We now know exactly how many litres of water are in our tanks at any time.
The Topargee gives the confidence of knowing exactly how long you can free camp for.
Number 4: Sizzler Deluxe Marine BBQ on slide out
Extension Swivel Slide
Number 3: Inverter – for Washing Machine.
I love, love, love this little luxury in the bush.
The inverter could be used for other 240 appliances, but we have no need to use anything else. Its use for the washing machine is invaluable.
BOS Jockey Wheel. Foot Plate Option.
Our BOS Jockey wheel (base plate) was chosen as an alternative to the usual wind-up. Hitching up and unhitching is quick and easy with use of our Ryobi drill instead of winding by hand. We did not purchase the Jockey Wheel option and have never needed it. We chose the BOS foot plate for extra stability on any surface. The BOS was chosen over its leading competitor because hydraulic jacks are prone to leaking. BOS is mechanical, not hydraulic.
We will never use the painstaking traditional wind up, ever again!
- Baseplate option stays attached in transit
- Choice of kits for either basic manual use, or even easier cordless drill operation
- Stabilising footplate improves support and means you can park on virtually any surface
- Extension section for higher vehicles
- Drill-driven extension bar option for caravan stabilising legs
- 3 ribs means you have plenty of options when setting your height
Number 1: Easyburn Flat Pack Firepit
We also wanted a fire we can cook on. Easyburn ticked all those boxes.
There is no doubt that the Easyburn Fire Pit is our absolute favourite item for our caravan lifestyle!
We have also written Blogs on our Favourite Gadgets and Caravan Mods.
