Five Caravan Gadgets that I either have, or would love to have…

Something I’ve noticed, caravan manufacturers have been a bit late to the party when it comes to gadgets. I don’t know anything that’s “Alexa Enabled” in the caravan., for example. People’s homes are full of gadgets, maybe manufacturers assume that people just want to “get away from it all”. Well, I’d have thought that too, but the more you get away the more you miss your home comforts, the more you miss your gadgets.

So, I’ve trawled the internet, stole over people’s ideas and generally had a good look around for my favourite caravan based gadgets..

Instant Pot

Instant Pot Duo 7-in-1 Electric Pressure Cooker, 6 Qt, 5.7 Litre, 1000 W, Brushed Stainless Steel/Black*
  • Please note that all text on this product is in English
  • No more rattles and hisses, no more adjusting the heat to regulate pressure because the Instant Pot Duo does it for you
  • Duo is a 7-in-1 multi-functional Cooker, pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, saute/browning, yoghurt maker, steamer & warmer
  • Large, easy to use control panel with 14 built-in programs, dual pressure, automatic keep-warm and 3 temperatures for saute and slow cook
  • 10 proven safety mechanisms; highly energy efficient and kitchen friendly emitting hardly any noise, heat or steam

Oh boy do we love this! We take it with us and use it in the awning. It’s great for really quick meals. Chicken soup in 30 mins, chop up some chicken, pour in some water, add a frozen stew pack.

DJI Osmo Pocket

DJI Osmo Pocket 3-Axis Gimbal Stabiliser with Integrated Camera/Can be Used with Smartphone/Android (USB-C)/ iPhone,Osmo Pocket Black*
  • Lightweight & Portable
  • Mechanical Stabilization
  • Expansive Accessories
  • 4K 60fps Video
  • Intelligent Shooting

I take this everywhere and drives Mandy around the bend. But I’m a vlogger, what does she expect :-). Seriously, I don’t take it everywhere, but a great little camera capable of 4k video as well as still photos. The 3 axis gimble keeps everything stable, it can track your face so you’re never out of shot.

NETGEAR Nighthawk 4g Router

This isn’t something I have, or have even used, but I think it’s something that is really popular with many caravanners.

You can connect up to 20 devices, ok this might be a bit of an overkill! You might be familiar with using your iphone as a hotspot, where other people can use your data. Well, this works in the same way. With this in use anyone in your caravan can access to internet via 4G.

NETGEAR Nighthawk MR1100 Mobile Hotspot 4G Router, Mifi, Portable Wi-Fi for Travel, Super Fast Download Speeds Up to 1 Gbps, Unlocked for All Networks*
  • WiFi Connect up to 20 Devices
  • Fast 4G LTE broad brand speed: The M1 mobile hotspot router reliably delivers download speeds of up to 1 Gbps
  • Connected and PROTECTED anywhere: Create your own secure WLAN and share it with others when travelling for business or on holiday, when outdoors, or to replace your home DSL coverage
  • Stay productive: Share WiFi internet access with up to 20 devices
  • Works with any network: Unlocked for 3G/4G LTE internet access around the world using your provider's SIM card

Nespresso Coffee Maker

Sale
Nespresso Essenza Mini Coffee Machine, Grey by Krups*
  • Ultra-compact design: Very small footprint 33 cm x 8.4 cm x 20.4 cm (L x W x H), easy to place and move in the kitchen/house
  • Easy controls: Two programmable options for espresso or lungo with automatic flow-stop

Small, light very portable. Perfect for taking with you in your caravan. We have one very similar and it makes a great cup of coffee. I don’t just use it in the caravan, I keep it at home and take it with us when you go on our travels!

Pop Up Pint Glass

Ok, Ok, low tech and leaky, but…I wouldn’t be without mine! I have a pop up wine glass too. I know, posh init!

  • Pack a Port-a-Pint in your pocket and you'll be ready to knock one back at a moment's notice
