If you're a caravan enthusiast, your caravan is more than a mode of transportation — it's your home away from home. Caravan modifications mean increased comfort and convenience, whether you're embarking on a weekend getaway or an extended road trip.
Does your caravan need some serious updates, or have you recently bought a new caravan and are ready to fit it out with all the essentials? We’re here to help. In this blog, we'll explore the top ten caravan modifications to give you some comfort for your next Aussie outdoor adventure.
Top 10 caravan modifications
- Stay connected on the road
While one of the significant appeals of caravanning is disconnecting from the hustle and bustle of daily life, we all rely on the bare necessities, from lighting to fridges and cooking appliances. One of the most significant advancements in caravan technology is integrating solar power. You no longer need to hook your caravan up to a caravan park to use electricity. Installing solar panels on your caravan can provide a reliable energy source for lighting, appliances, and even charging your electronic devices. It's a sustainable and cost-effective way to stay off-grid for longer periods.
At CaravanMods, our selection of 12V caravan accessories will help you keep your caravan functioning for all your needs when travelling off the grid. Buy a 10 amp to 15 amp adapter to connect your caravan to all your nifty caravan accessories. Above all else, our battery and vehicle monitor will track your water, tyre level, gas, temperature and battery levels from one device.
- Heating and cooling solutions mean increased comfort
Comfort is essential when travelling, particularly during those scorching Aussie summer months. Adding some ventilation to your caravan can make a world of difference. You'll be able to enjoy a cool and comfortable interior, no matter how scorching it is outside.
At CaravanMods, we stock a range of 12V fans so you can enjoy a refreshing sleep! Explicitly designed for on-the-go living, our fans are lightweight, portable and easy to install. From bed end lights and fan combos to ceiling fans, wall-mounted fans and more, we have it all under one roof.
And for those chilly winter nights when a warm blanket isn’t doing the trick, our portable Diesel camp heaters are crafted from the toughest materials to withstand the harshest conditions and keep you and your family safe and warm throughout the night.
- Spruce up your caravan bathroom
Many caravans have basic bathroom facilities, but upgrading them means increased comfort for your long journey ahead. Whether showering, washing clothes, cleaning or cooking, you need a caravan hot water system for all necessities. There’s no need to worry about running out of hot water with our industry-leading hot water systems. Our water pumps operate smoothly and quietly so you can enjoy a nice, hot shower on the road. We've got you covered, from sinks and taps to portable toilets and water hoses.
- Kitchen renovation
The great thing about caravanning is you don’t have to sacrifice your meals. With a portable or upright 12/24V fridge/freezer, cooking utensils, microwave, pots and pans and a portable induction cooktop, you can cook all your favourite homemade meals regardless of your location on the road.
- Storage solutions
Especially when staying in a caravan with your loved ones, it’s easy for things to get cluttered quickly. Get ahead of the mess by installing additional shelving, cabinets or under-bed storage to keep your belongings organised and easily accessible.
You can’t miss our nifty caravan modification — our vinyl caravan wall storage pockets are easily mountable wall pockets to store all your belongings, from your laptop to your phone, keys, books and notepads. Don’t worry about bringing out the tools — they’re mounted with strong velcro strips to make your life a little easier.
Our collapsible containers take up next-to-no room when storing them and can easily store any leftovers in the fridge for the next day.
- Improve your suspension system
Improve your caravan's suspension for a levelled caravan every time you step inside. Our T-bubble level is mounted near the jockey wheel to check its stability. Should your caravan be unstable, that’s where our jockey wheel dock and caravan stabiliser legs come in handy. They will reduce the sink by increasing the surface area beneath your wheels. A levelled caravan doesn’t just mean increased comfort for a good night’s sleep. An unlevelled caravan will cause premature failure to drop down or wind down stabiliser legs, affect the fridge’s operation and cause the sink or shower to fail to drain properly.
- LED Lighting
LED lighting consumes less power and provides brighter, more energy-efficient illumination. Replace your old incandescent bulbs with LEDs to save energy and enhance the ambience inside and outside your caravan. Our camping lighting includes waterproof and flexible LED strip lights illuminating your camp area.
- Entertainment system
Prepare for those rainy days with a high-quality entertainment system. Our 12V TVs will withstand the bumps and vibrations you’ll experience on the road. They’re made with sturdier materials and can handle being knocked about a little! Choose from our selection of DVD players or Bluetooth for increased comfort on your road trip. For the ultimate viewing experience, you can install a sound system or bring a gaming console along to keep everyone entertained during downtime.
- Increased security features
When stepping outside your comfort zone, having a security system means increased comfort during your travels. Invest in security upgrades such as our motion-sensor alarm systems and improved door locks to ensure peace of mind while on the road.
- Awnings and outdoor accessories
Make the most of the great outdoors and add an awning for a comfortable outdoor space for dining and relaxing. From foldable chairs to tables and a portable grill, you can kick off your day with a family BBQ, unwind and relax while soaking up the sun.
