Traveling in a caravan is certainly among the top 5 wishes on the bucket list of many Aussies. It is fun, out-of-the-ordinary, simple and quite inexpensive. Feeling as if at home while enjoying the beautiful landscapes and sights Australia has to offer is certainly the recipe for a good trip. Caravans are just great – there’s plenty of room for luggage and legroom, they usually have a built-in bedroom, a bathroom, and a small kitchen for preparing tasty meals whenever you can, saving you the cost of dining in restaurants. The joys of the simple life.
Caravanning is the perfect way to travel in style and experience new adventures without having to spend a small fortune for accommodation. So, to make every traveling experience much more comfortable and pleasant, you need to equip it good if you don’t want to use facilities other than your caravan.
There are countless models of ovens, pumps, cook tops, washing machines and caravan sinks Australia stores offer and they vary in price, range and quality. There are specialized stores and online vendors that deal with caravan equipment so it shouldn’t be that hard to find one and see what you will need to buy from it.
One of the most important parts of a caravan is certainly the kitchen. While the caravan kitchen is usually relatively small, it still needs to be well equipped with the most basic appliances – a fridge, a sink, a stove and an oven. There are specifically designed caravan sinks Australia stores sell, that need to be connected with pipes and a reservoir which will provide clean water for you to wash the produce before cooking it.
After the sink, a fridge should be highly considered if you don’t already have one. They’re compact and have a small freezer department. There are different types of fridges you can choose from all coming with different features. The most important thing to consider when buying one is how long your usual trips last and how much food you have to bring with you.
Besides kitchen accessories and parts, bathroom parts are also of great importance. A shower and toilet are a must, if you aren’t staying on camping sites that have a bathroom. But even if there is a public bathroom available to you, having your own is always much more convenient. Caravans usually use porta-potties, and caravan owners should pick the model that best works with them and is compatible with the caravan they own.
And last but not least, a shower. If you find some available for the interior of the caravan, they are pretty basic. The shower tray collects and redirects the waste water after it has been used. Exterior showers are also an option, but those usually need to be shielded with an awning.
All in all, the aforementioned items will certainly help you have the best camping experience, and if you don’t already own them, or need a replacement, make sure to buy them before your next camping trip!
