Whether you’re a caravan enthusiast or new to caravanning, life on the open road is a thrilling adventure. Caravanning is the perfect combination of comfort and mobility, allowing you to explore new destinations while enjoying the familiar comforts of home. At CaravanMods, we’re your one-stop destination for all the essential caravan accessories and upgrades you could possibly need to take your caravanning experience up a notch. In this guide, we'll explore the best caravan accessories to add to your list for a great road trip ahead.
- Have reliable power and energy solutions
To ensure you have a reliable power source when travelling off the grid, consider self-sufficient batteries or installing solar panels on the roof of your caravan. This will allow you to charge your devices, power appliances and keep your lights on.
At CaravanMods, we also have a range of 12V caravan accessories to keep your vehicle functioning for all your needs. We have everything from battery and vehicle monitors to manage your tyre pressure, gas bottle level sensors and fridge switches under one roof. You’ll need a main plug conversion to convert your 15 AMP power lead to fit a 10A power outlet and extension cords to connect to all your devices.
- Get ready for the great outdoors
When you’ve finally reached your destination, and it’s time to set up camp, our caravan stabiliser leg pads and anti-sink jockey wheel docks will provide your caravan or camper trailer with much-needed stability.
Install caravan awnings or privacy screens to create extra outdoor living space and protect yourself and your loved ones from the elements. Add bike racks or storage boxes to carry recreational gear like bikes, kayaks or camping chairs. That way, you can foster the perfect space for outdoor activities and relaxation.
When pitching your tent, our Jayco caravan accessories include screw-in tent pegs, mounting brackets and tarp buddies to help assemble your tent.
And for those relaxed day trips to the beach, our basic beach tent will provide you and your travel companion with much-needed relief from the heat and a place to store your belongings.
- Enhance your adventure with entertainment systems
While caravanning allows you and your loved ones to connect with nature, there’s always more room for fun. Enhance your camping experience by installing a 12V TV and a DVD player — one of the best caravan accessories for cosy movie nights. We even have a bench-mounted TV you can mount on the side of your camper trailer. A portable Bluetooth speaker will be a welcome addition to play some relaxed music. These mods can provide much-needed entertainment during rainy days or quiet evenings by the campfire.
- Stay organised with our campsite storage solutions
Before embarking on your camping adventure, maximise your caravan's storage space with our selection of campsite storage supplies. Our vinyl caravan wall storage pockets will keep your belongings safe and sound for the drive ahead. You can slide all your go-to items in these easily mountable wall pockets, from your laptop to your phone, keys, books and notepads. The best part? You can easily mount them with the supplied Velcro strips without worrying about the hassle of screwing or drilling them into the wall. You can use additional adhesive strips to provide extra security for those heavier items.
Keep your drinking hose, waste hose and electrical lead stored safely away when not in use with our storage bag bundles. These caravan accessories will help you stay organised and maximise your limited space.
- Cook up a storm with our kitchen supplies by your side
Fit out your caravan with our 12/24V upright or portable fridges/freezers, hot and cold faucets and hot water systems. Consider adding a slide-out pantry for easy access to food supplies. Don't forget to equip your kitchen with cookware and utensils. Our clear, stackable, collapsible containers will keep your essentials organised and can be neatly stowed away when not in use.
- Sleep nice and sound with heating and cooling solutions
A good night's sleep is essential for an enjoyable camping trip. With Australia’s weather so unpredictable, a 12V portable fan will provide much-needed ventilation and regulate the temperature when travelling to your destination. Install an efficient heating system for those chilly nights, too.
- Ensure your safety with security systems
Protect your loved ones and your caravan belongings with a robust security system. You can install motion-activated lights, an alarm system and secure locks on doors and windows. At CaravanMods, our parts and accessories include alarmed heavy-duty padlocks made from 304-grade stainless steel resistant to impact, drilling and cutting — the best caravan accessories for deterring potential thieves. It’s triggered by a motion sensor that activates the alarm for ten seconds and is rust-resistant and waterproof to withstand the elements.
- Be prepared for anything with bathroom essentials
Many caravans have bathrooms but can often benefit from a few modifications. From portable toilets to 12V water pumps, sinks, taps and more, you can fit out your entire caravan bathroom under one roof with our plumbing supplies. Install a water-saving showerhead and a water filtration system for your showering needs. Add shelves and hooks for toiletries, towels and clothes.
