Luxury caravan accessories – our top picks:
A good TV can make all the difference if you want to relax with your favourite shows in the evening, or are touring with the kids and they want to watch some television.
One to consider is the Avtex W195TS, a model that made it onto our best caravan TV guide. This 19.5-inch model only weighs 2.5kg, and lets you watch a range of apps, including Netflix and Disney+, as well as HDTV.
The product, which comes with edge to edge display, also gives you the option of wirelessly casting your mobile phone to it.
Soundbar and speaker
A soundbar perfectly complements a television, making up for any tinny sound quality that slimline TVs can sometimes have.
We’re including a second Avtex product here, this time the SB195BT soundbar. We like the flexibility it provides, thanks to its 12/24v and mains power connectivity, and we think it provides a great way of enhancing your audio experience when you’re on tour.
Whether you choose to use it to boost your TV’s volume or want to listen to music in your tourer, it will have you covered. You can connect it to your TV with a HDMI lead, or to your phone via Bluetooth.
If you’re planning to take your caravan off-grid, a petrol-powered generator can be a real bonus.
One option to consider is the Hyundai HY1000SI. It weighs 14kg and provides a maximum output of 1000w, ideal for powering your TV or similar while you’re enjoying your trip. It comes with both a 230v socket and a 12v DC battery charger, while the LED display is simple to navigate, presenting you with an easy way to keep an eye on its performance. We like that it operates relatively quietly too, running at only 58DB.
Digital projectors are great luxury caravan accessories to consider, allowing you to project films or TV shows onto the side of your tourer or onto the interior of your awning, creating your own mini-cinema vibe. All you need to do is connect it to your laptop or digital device and you’re ready to go.
One such option that we like is the BenQ GS50 – it offers a 1080p full HD resolution picture, with the added reassurance of being IPX2 splash proof. The simple to set up projector also has a useful auto adjust, taking into account the brightness of the day to ensure your viewing experience isn’t hampered.
You even have the choice of playing music through it, as it comes with a Bluetooth speaker, while the adjustable 15° tilt hinge offers some useful versatility too.
If you’re only heading to your campsite for a night or two, it can seem like a lot of hassle to inflate a full awning. That’s where having the option of taking a pop-up shelter along comes in; it’s a practical addition to a shorter touring experience, and opting for one with open sides will mean you get good airflow in warmer weather, while also being able to enjoy some shade.
One option that we like is the Event Shelter XL from Coleman. It offers caravanners a durable and lightweight option for sheltering from the elements, be it the rain or the sun. Plus, its open sides will ensure you get good airflow when temperatures rise. When it’s in position, it covers 4.5m x 4.5m.
If you don’t want a soundbar and are just looking for a way to improve the sound quality of your music, a Bluetooth speaker could be the answer.
One that we like is the Sony SRS-XB13 – the waterproof product may be small, but it provides a decent sound quality, allowing you to enjoy your music on the go. Providing up to 16 hours of battery life, the detachable strap it comes with can also be used to hang it from a hook in your tourer. Plus, it comes in a selection of colours, letting you find the shade that best suits your caravan’s interior decor.
Fold-away table and benches
If you want to enjoy meals outdoors when you’re at your campsite, you won’t want to be without a fold-away table. There are a number of products out there, but you’ll want to make sure the option you go for doesn’t eat into your payload.
One to consider is this model from Coleman, which only weighs 8.4kg. The table can be folded in half for easy transportation, and comes with two bench seats which are stored inside when they’re not in use. The case also comes with a handle, making transportation easier than ever.
If you find pitching and parking tough, a motor mover can make a real difference, helping to take the stress out of your manoeuvres.
One option to consider is the Emove EM305, an option we shortlisted at the Practical Caravan Awards 2023 for the best caravan motor mover category. The EM305 can be used on both single and twin axle caravans of up to 2000kg, and it is also fitted with stop/start technology, which helps to cut down on any jerking.
Having a head torch to hand can be incredibly useful when you’re on tour, whether you’re walking back from a pub in the evening, or find yourself having to carry out some emergency cassette-emptying in the dark, as it gives you the benefit of leaving your hands free.
We like how effective this Energizer LED head torch is, providing up to 250-lumen beam of light. It’s both durable and water-resistant, with an IPX4 rated body, and can offer up to seven hours of run time. The beam can reach up to 70 metres, and the inclusion of four different light modes provides more flexibility.
