Camping is meant to be fun however, sometimes that fun and enjoyment can be spoiled when we don’t have some of the conveniences we are normally used to. Sometimes, something as simple as having a portable camp stove for cooking or even a bug zapper can make all the difference.
So, with that in mind, are you wondering what the best camping gadgets are to take on your next camping getaway?
Luckily, we have made it easy for you by compiling a list of the coolest camping gadgets to hit the market in 2021! This year has seen the release of some incredible gadgets that can give you the camping experience of a lifetime.
Wondering what these gadgets are? Then please keep on reading below as we cover the following:
At Retreat Caravans, we pride ourselves on making sure that the Retreat Family gets to enjoy the best camping experience out there. So with that in mind, here are a few must-have gadgets to take with you on your next camping trip:
As Aussies, we love a good barbie. With a portable camp stove grill, you can create smokeless flames (yes, you read that right!) to cook any campfire meal. Some portable camp stove grills even have an LED screen so that you can monitor the fire’s strength, fan speed settings, and power output. As a cheeky little bonus, you can even plug in your device through its USB port!
Everyone needs clean drinking water, right? However, out in nature, you can’t always be sure that the water around you is clean and drinkable. With a handy-dandy personal water filter, clean water is just an easy few seconds away!
With a five-in-one paracord survival bracelet, you can keep the most essential survival gear around your wrist at all times. A paracord survival bracelet typically has 4 metres of military-grade paracord, an emergency knife, a compass, a fire starter, and a loud emergency whistle. There’s no doubt that you’ll be able to combat any unexpected circumstances that come your way with this very handy survival gadget!
Most of us would agree that traditional camping chairs can be really uncomfortable, and what use will it be to you if you can’t sit down and relax in nature? Therefore, how about kicking back and relaxing with a camping chair that can actually recline. Reclining camping chairs come with padding but are incredibly lightweight. Some even have a cupholder so that you can nestle your favourite drink right next to you. What better way is there to enjoy the great outdoors?
Yes, you read that right! You can bring your own portable fridge along with you on your camping trip. A portable fridge looks like a typical ice cooler but can plug into your vehicle and carry 60 cans of beverage or 18 bottles of wine. Of course, we don’t expect you to bring that much booze, but that’s a great deal right? Additionally, a portable fridge can function as a freezer especially if the fridge in your caravan is not quite big enough.
Out in the wild, power can be an incredibly important resource to bring with you. With a solar generator, you’ll be able to power all your gadgets whilst keeping this power source for a long period of time. Some solar generators are capable of charging your phone over 20 times or even charge a 60W TV for 3 hours. Solar generators are a must-have!
Unfortunately one of the most annoying things about the great outdoors is insects! However, with modern-day bug zappers, they’ll be long gone! Modern-day bug zappers have various features such as portability, extended distance coverage to lengths as much as 100 square metres, with the addition of insect attractants for better effectiveness. Definitely worth the purchase for your next camping trip!
Why rest your head on the ground when you can rest your head on a fluffy travel pillow? Camping pillows are just the answer! Camping pillows won’t add any extra weight to your baggage because they can easily compress to around one-eighth of their size. Pretty cool right?
At Retreat Caravans, we believe that camping does not have to be as simple as a tent and a sleeping bag. Modern-day gadgets prove that camping is all about bringing the experience to the fullest.
