If you're a proud caravanner, then you know the vital importance of storage space. When your caravan is your home away from home, you need to be able to pack everything you need for your trip. And it all needs to go somewhere in a neat and organised manner! That's where pole carriers for caravans come in.
Caravan pole carriers are an essential piece of equipment for any caravanner. Not only are they a great way to free up some space inside your caravan but they also help ensure that your poles are safely and securely stored away. Because let's face it. Items like awning poles, fishing rods, tent poles, annexe poles, roof rafter poles, spreader bars, anti-flap kits, and even cable lengths can be quite unwieldy!
Investing in a good caravan pole carrier will make all the difference. It'll make packing and unpacking your caravan or camper trailer a breeze, and it'll give you the peace of mind of knowing that your poles are safe and sound.
There are a few things to consider when choosing the right pole carrier for your caravan. So, without further ado, let's dive in!
What to look for in a caravan pole carrier?
The first thing to consider is the length of the pole carrier you need. This will be determined by the longest pole you need to store. For example, if you have a fishing rod that's six feet long, then you'll need a pole carrier that's at least six feet in length.
The second thing to consider is the width and shape of the pole carrier. This is important because you need to make sure that the pole carrier you choose can accommodate all of your various poles. A lot of pole carriers are round in shape and this is fine; however, if you want to store a mixture of pole shapes and sizes, then you'll need to find a pole carrier that's more versatile, such as the pole box carrier from Supa-Peg.
Thirdly, think about where you want to place your pole carrier. Whilst some people argue that the best place for them is tucked away underneath your caravan, this can actually be difficult to access. To avoid having to get down on your hands and knees every time you want to retrieve or store a pole, the best approach is to secure your pole carrier on your drawbar. This will provide you with easy access and make packing and unpacking a breeze.
Lastly, you need to consider the aesthetics of your new pole carrier. It's no good using an ugly pole carrier that's going to ruin the look of your beautiful caravan.
Now that you know what to look for in a caravan pole carrier, it's time to choose the right one for your needs. Here is our top pick!
Supa-Peg: The best pole carrier for Aussie caravanners
The Supa-Peg pole carrier is the perfect pole storage for camper trailers or caravans. Made from lightweight aluminium, this high-quality carrier features a sleek, square design that can accommodate more poles than standard round carriers. The 3mm wall thickness ensures durability, while the 150mm square design provides plenty of space for your poles. Whether you're headed to the beach or the bush, this pole carrier is perfect for any Aussie caravanner.
There are lots of reasons to choose the Supa-Peg pole carrier over others on the market. Firstly, it's designed and manufactured right here in Australia. So, you can be sure that it's tough enough to handle our harsh conditions.
Another of the Supa-Peg’s huge advantages is that has a 150mm square profile. This means it effectively occupies the same space as a 150mm round PVC tube. However, you get the additional storage that the square profile offers over a circular profile.
Plus, its lightweight yet strong construction makes it the ideal option for carrying heavier poles, and because it's made from aluminium, it won't rust or corrode over time.
