Five Caravan Gadgets that I either have, or would love to have… BTW These are definitely not caravan accessories
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..
- HEALTHY COOKING WITH CONSISTENT RESULTS: The classic Instant Pot Duo adjusts pressure, temperature, time, and heat to cook food up to 70% faster than other methods and deliver consistent, delicious results every time
- CONVENIENT AND CUSTOMISABLE: The Instant Pot Duo can remember the way you like to cook, and which smart programs you use most often. ‘Set it and forget it’ freeing you to do other things while your dinner cooks safely and quickly
- 13 ONE-TOUCH SMART PROGRAMS: Revolutionize the way you cook with one touch programs: Soup/Broth, Meat/Stew, Bean/Chili, Slow Cook, Sauté, Rice, Porridge, Steam, Yogurt, Multigrain and Poultry. Keep Warm, and Pressure Cook
- SPACIOUS 5.7L CAPACITY: Perfect for cooking up to 5 dishes, replacing multiple kitchen appliances
- EVEN EASIER TO USE: Release steam with a simple, safe push of the quick release button, with minimal mess and easy clean up
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
- 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.
- 4G ROUTER WITH SIM SLOT: The M1 portable wifi hotspot (MiFi device) reliably delivers download speeds of up to 1 Gbps
- MOBILE BROADBAND ROUTER: Use as a portable travel router to share Wi-Fi internet access on the go with up to 20 devices
- SIM SLOT UNLOCKED: Unlocked for 3G/4G LTE internet access around the world using your provider’s SIM card
- PORTABLE WIFI: This 4g hotspot provides secure private WiFi connection for laptops, tablets & phones in airports, hotels, and trains
- Set up, share & monitor WiFi easily on a larger 2.4″ color LCD screen
Nespresso Coffee Maker
- 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
- High-tech: 19-bar high-performance pump and fast heat-up in only 25 seconds
- Thermoblock technology – the process which heats the water as required, ensuring fresh water at the ideal temperature whilst reducing the chance of scaling
- Energy-saving: Low energy use mode auto-starts after 3 minutes, with an automatic off function after 9 minutes
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
- Just flick your wrist and the cup magically extends
- Once it magically extends, simply pour and enjoy
- Perfect for camping, festivals, parties and life on the go
- Comes with a handy storage case you so you don’t have to worry about getting it lost or damage during your adventures
