As a used caravan is a very confined space, travels with your family can quickly become unpleasant when you are forced to live with a bad smell. There are three main causes of bad odors in caravans - wastewater, a malfunctioning toilet, or damp - and you may be pleased to learn that it is possible to remove these smells and enjoy your holiday once more.

  • Wastewater: There are a number of ways to remove these odors, the most popular being to add de-odorizing tablets to the wastewater tank where they dissolve. Rinsing the tank at least once a year and plugging the sinks during transit will also help to lessen odors.

  • Malfunctioning toilet: Odors can often leach out of the toilet of your used caravan is the cassette has cracks or leaks, so make sure it is in good condition. You should also empty your cassette well before it reaches full capacity to lessen the chances of bad smells.

  • Damp: When your caravan does not take to winter too well, the damp odors that ensue can be difficult to remove. The only way to stop this sort of bad smell is to find the source of the dampness (poor ventilation, for example) and repair it as soon as possible.

If your used caravan is experiencing a bad odor of some kind, the first step to fixing it is determining what has caused the smell. Whilst damp is easy to determine from the other two, you may have to do some inspecting to get an idea of whether your bad caravan odor has been caused be wastewater or by a malfunctioning toilet (of course, if you don't have a toilet the answer is simple).

Whilst there are hundreds if not thousands of great products available to caravanners, no one wants to fork out a fortune for items they might not need or won't ever use, particularly if you have just paid for a new caravan. There are however a few essentials that will make your first caravanning trip easier, more enjoyable and altogether stress free - just the way it should be.

The first absolute essential is a portable water container for filling your fresh water tank when you first arrive on site. Often simply called an 'Aquaroll' after one of the leading products of this type (think 'Hoover' or 'Tanoy'), these are an absolute must for every caravanner as in case you hadn't noticed your home away from home is not plumbed in to the mains!

You will also need a step for getting in to the caravan door as steps aren't generally something which manufacturers supply, though if buying from a dealer these will often be included as part of a 'new starter kit'.

An awning isn't strictly an essential as some caravanners do go without, but with the offer of doubling your living space and greatly increasing your caravans usability, it's an item which most caravanners wouldn't do without. You can buy different types and sizes of awning, from a full length awning with large zipped doors, to a porch awning designed simply as an area to take off muddy boots before entering the van, so be sure to do your homework and choose the awning that's right for you and your caravan.

These items should make your first trip a little bit easier and more enjoyable, but there are hundreds of items which you may find you need over the years and will unwilling amass - just keep in mind that whatever you buy, you will have to carry with you! On the subject of weight, make sure that your caravan and its contents never exceed 85% of your cars total weight as this is the maximum ratio which is safe to tow. Of course it is advisable to be well underneath this to get the best control and safety when towing, plus much more better fuel consumption - and remember that the maximum towing weight detailed by your car manufacturer is the one you should never exceed, even if less than 85%.

Last, but certainly not least on your list of must haves, is a specialist insurance policy that covers your caravan and all your carefully chosen new equipment. Make sure that the total value you are insured for is enough to cover your caravan, awning and every item of equipment.

We will start with the definition of caravan. A caravan is a group of travelers or merchants banded together and organized for joint support and protection while traveling through unsettled or unfriendly country. Caravan trade, however, is associated with the history of the Middle East as far back as the records of ancient civilizations extend. The caravan trade was very well developed before the idea of sea commerce was ever considered.

The history of the caravan trades people has shown how well organized these groups of people were. The caravans crossed great distances across the unsettled desert trails, with little or no protection from the local governments.

So hop in your Dodge Caravan and go for a ride. How much merchandise can you fit into it? Gather up some friends that have a Dodge Caravan and you could be caravan (a group of travelers on a journey).

When people hear about caravans, the image that immediately comes to mind is that of a convoy of camels and donkeys in some tribal land. This is true. Caravans first began appearing in the Middle Eastern parts and even parts of Arabia and North Africa where numerous nomadic tribes still cross the vast expanses of the desert in search of goods and services to buy and sell.

In the past, these tribes crossed the desert with a convoy full of items to sell. This constituted their barter trade and they sort other nomadic tribes to sell their products. Today, these convoys still cross vast expanses of land but not like they used to. People now use motor vehicles more and the age-old caravans have become almost obsolete.

In the United States, when people talk of caravans, we are actually referring to mobile homes, recreational vehicles, trailers and motor homes. These are considered temporary homes and are usually used by families that are taking a road trip or dwelling in temporary shelter. Nowadays, these homes have become more common that they were before. This is mostly in the southern parts of the US. The reason for this increase in mobile homes is because of the recent spike in major hurricanes and tornado which have become commonplace. The hurricane season has left in its wake, a trail of destroyed homes and the organization that deals with emergency management, FEMA, has given thousands of caravan homes to families.

Then there are other accessories such as gloves, boots, tents, flash lights, water resistant clothing and the rest. These are mostly items that can come handy at a road trip. The best place to purchase caravan accessories is at the outdoor spots store. These are also the same stores that sell outdoors equipment. This can be fishing hooks, baits, hats, binoculars and rope. If you are taking a road trip, there are also websites that are dedicated to these kinds of accessories. It is recommended that you shop for caravan accessories online because you can do a price comparison and also read reviews from others like yourself.
