  1. Pet Friendly If you have a dog then you will no doubt be aware of the high cost of putting your furry friend away in kennels whilst you go on holiday. It is not just the financial cost thought it is also the emotional cost of being separated from your pets. You will find that many static ‘vans that are available to hire will allow one or two pets to stay in them. There is frequently a charge for this but more often than not it is significantly less than kennel fees.

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.

New to Caravanning - Your Essentials Checklist

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).

Caravan Awnings - Use Them to Improve Your Caravan Or Motorhome

Buy Caravan

Although caravans and motorhomes can give a great sense of freedom to their owners, sometimes they can be a little cramped, especially if a number of people are staying in them. There are various solutions to this problem, but the most practical and effective is to use a caravan awning.

Caravan awnings are structures made of materials such as acrylic or PVC-coated polyester supported by a frame made of aluminium, carbon fibre or zinc-coated steel poles. Designed to be lightweight and portable, with practice they can be easily set up, giving extra living space on the outside of the caravan or motorhome. In the most basic models this can mean a simple roof giving shade and some protection from the elements, while more elaborate models can give an extra room with a door, windows and even a carpet.

Lastly, when actually purchasing an awning, there are a few things for the buyer to watch out for. Does the awning dealer have a solid knowledge of his product, or does he rely on product brochures? Does he try to push for a big sale with many superfluous extras, or does he listen carefully to the buyer's requirements and tailor his advice accordingly? Does the dealer have a good reputation for after-sales service? Consideration of these points will help the buyer in selecting a reliable dealer and therefore decrease the chance of purchasing an unsuitable awning.
