What Caravan Gear Do I Need?

Electrical

Our Electrical guides cover everything from the best appliances to kit out your caravan (suitable for 12v and 230v), to the battery and power supply itself.

Here you’ll find some of our favourite caravan appliances of 2021.

Gas

These days, most caravans use both electricity and gas.

And you don’t want to run out of either!

Our Gas guides provide some useful tools you might want to consider, such as bottle indicators and gas regulators.

We also take a look at the advantages of propane vs butane, as well as how much gas you are likely to need for your caravan or motorhome.

Water & Waste

A working water system is essential if you’re going to hitch your caravan in the middle of nowhere!

Our Water guides cover both the effective supply of water (taps, filters, heaters, etc), plus water waste management essentials.

In Transit

It would be nice if we could teleport our caravans to the end destination, but unfortunately the technology isn’t there yet.

Until then, we have towing and levelling to deal with.

Our Transit guides walk you through the best equipment for getting safely from A to B.

Security & Safety

The caravanning community is generally a friendly bunch, but that’s not to say that the security of your vehicle should be taken lightly.

Our Security guides cover essential locks and alarm systems.

We also cover some useful safety equipment for your caravan – both on and off the road.

Awnings

Awnings are a great way to add some practical extra space to the exterior of your caravan.

Sure, to the uninitiated passer-by, they might look a bit like a tent strapped to a van.

But they can be very useful if you are cramped for space inside, or looking for an outdoors social area that is weather-proof.

Our Awnings guides look at the best options for air, pole, porch or full awnings.

Caravan Care

If you’re going to spend a decent amount of time in your caravan, you’ll want to show the thing some TLC.

Our Upkeep guides equip you with the tools (and preventative measures) to keep your caravan in tip-top shape all year round.

Think of it as Caravan Care 101.

Browse by:

Furnishings

From bed linen, to blinds, to the basic furniture that every caravanner needs.

What are the best practical items you can furnish a caravan with?

Our Furnishings guides show you just that – for the bedroom, bathroom, kitchen area and more.

James Richards is our lead contributor here at PodCaravans. He is a man of many hobbies. He loves to read, hike, and go on trips with his family just as much as he loves caravanning. He knows a lot about caravanning equipment, and can help you out with anything you might need to know for your next camping trip. A fan of the outdoors from an early age, James bought a small camper van as soon as he could afford it - and began using it whenever possible. After many camping road trips around the South of England, James decided that it was too small for his needs. He invested in a larger caravan, and began travelling with his family on road trips across the United Kingdom - which he still does today, a welcome distraction in the middle of the covid pandemic. Recently, James has worked as a guide for several people taking their first steps into caravanning. If you're new to caravanning, he's happy to help you learn everything you need to know about this fun hobby!
