The time has come. The open road awaits. You've packed your bags, hitched up the caravan and you're ready to go. But wait! Before you head off into the sunset, make sure you have all the 12-volt caravan appliances you need to make your trip comfortable and enjoyable. After all, that's why we caravan - to ensure that we have all of life's little creature comforts with us no matter where we go!
Here are the top five 12 volt caravan appliances you cannot leave home without
1. TV and DVD Player
There's nothing better than relaxing in your caravan after a long day on the road. Whether you're watching your favourite movie or catching up on the latest episode of your favourite TV show, a 12-volt TV and DVD player is a must-have for any caravanner. Whilst your home TV runs on 240 volts, a 12 volt TV and DVD player will run off your caravan's battery, meaning you can enjoy your entertainment even when you're not hooked up to mains power. Now, you might be thinking to yourself, "But surely the picture quality will suffer?" Not so! The latest gen caravan TVs and DVD players feature LED backlighting and HD resolution, so you can enjoy your entertainment in style.
And the beauty of investing in a TV specifically designed for use while caravanning is that they come with all the necessary brackets, mounts, and leads to make installation a breeze.
2. Portable stove
Your caravan probably has a pretty good stove in it already, right? But what happens when you're out and about and don't have access to mains power? That's where a 12-volt portable stove comes in handy. These stoves are designed to be used without mains power, so you can cook up a storm no matter where you are. And, because they run off your caravan battery, there's no need to worry about running out of gas.
But what about their heat capacity? - We hear you ask! today's portable stoves pack a serious punch when it comes to heating up food quickly and efficiently. In fact, one of the best units on the market today has a range of 149°C. Which is perfect for cooking recipes such as roast chicken, lamb shanks, and even lasagne! So, if you're looking for an appliance that will make your life on the road easier, a portable stove is a must-have.
3. Fridge and freezer
A 12-volt fridge or freezer is another essential appliance for any caravanner. After all, what's a road trip without ice-cold drinks and snacks? A 12-volt fridge or freezer runs off your caravan battery and keeps your food and drinks cool (or frozen) no matter where you are. And, because they're so energy efficient, you'll find that they don't put too much strain on your battery, meaning you can enjoy chilled drinks and snacks all day long.
In fact, if you're looking for a 12-volt caravan fridge that is super strong, has an excellent cooling system, and is very energy efficient, then the Bushman Upright Fridge/Freezer is a perfect choice. This award-winning fridge is a versatile and compact option for those who need reliable refrigeration on the go. It fits easily into most camper trailers, caravans, 4x4 canopies, and tiny houses. Now that you have an impressive 85L of cold storage space at your disposal, you can rest assured that a cold beverage is always at hand.
4. Personal fan
Whilst a personal fan might not be the first appliance that comes to mind when you're packing for your caravan trip, trust us - it's one you'll be glad you have! These nifty little fans are designed to keep you cool and comfortable when temperatures start to rise, and they're perfect for use in the caravan.
Because they're so compact and lightweight, a 12-volt fan is easy to pack away when you're not using them. So, if you're looking for a cooling solution that will work no matter where you are, a 12-volt personal fan is the way to go. Also check out this Rovin 12v portable ceiling fan!
5. 12 volt to 240-volt inverter
Last but not least, a 12-volt to 240-volt inverter is an essential appliance for any caravanner. This handy little device allows you to use mains power appliances in your caravan, even when you're not hooked up to mains power. So, if you want to use your laptop, hair straighteners, or other electrical items on the road, an inverter is a must-have.
The 1000W 12VDC to 240VAC Pure Sine Wave Inverter from PowerTech is a great option for anyone looking for a reliable and high-quality inverter.
