Caravan Accessories for Inside

Caravan accessories aren't all about drills, pegs, hammers and tools. Oh no. A whole lot of stuff goes on INSIDE the caravan. It's not all about cooking on a Cadac outside with the wind in your hair. It rains, hales and even gets a bit chilly from time to time. We have a look at some more really useful accessories that are a MUST if you intend spending any amount of time inside your caravan!


Caravan Accessories for Inside

There are a lot of “Caravan accessories” vlogs and blogs. Of course, we’re not exception, we also add to the number of these articles. Why not? They’re useful and good fun.

So I did a vlog about my favourite labour saving Caravan accessories and it included things like a cordless drill and screw in awning pegs, all the things I found helpful, things that made MY life easier.

I know what you’re thinking, no really, I do. You’re thinking, “not another accessory vlog?!” Well, as it’s winter and there isn’t a lot of caravan activity, I have to find something to vlog and blog about. I’d kidding of course..

Actually, Mandy watched my latest Caravan Accessory vlog and asked, “What about my favourite accessories?” A valid point and how selfish of me. So, Mandy compiled a list and I vlogged it. So, here they are. Five Caravan accessories for the inside of the caravan. I could, of course, be dreadfully sexist and say “Caravan Accessories for Women” but, firstly, I don’t think like that and secondly, Mandy would kill me!

Instant Pot

We’ve started to take this in the caravan when we go away. It’s great for quick and easy meals. One of my favourites is chicken soup, or chicken stew I guess it depends on what time of day you eat it 🙂

Velvet Coat Hangers

Coat hangers? What sort of Caravan accessory is that? A very useful one. Have you ever had clothes fall off coat hangers whilst towing? The Caravan bumps and sways quite a bit. Well, these coat hangers prevent clothes from falling off them. Perfect!

The are non stick, non slip, so much so I have trouble getting my shirts off the damn things 🙂

Washing Up Bowl With Plug

Now you’re thinking I’m just making up stuff aren’t you? Who the heck would need a washing up bowl with a plug in it. You do!

So when we wash up in the caravan. Ok, Ok, when Mandy washes up. In fairness I do help from time to time. Anyway, once the washing up bowl is full of water and needs tipping up and emptying, it’s quite heavy and also awkward to get your fingers around to pick it up. So, imagine a bowl that has a twisty plug that lets you drain the water out. Isn’t that genius?! We thing so…

Joseph Joseph Wash and Drain Washing Up Bowl - White/Green*
  • Removable plug feature allows you to drain or strain water, eliminating the need to lift or empty a heavy bowl
  • Straining plug catches large food particles, helping to prevent sink blockages
  • Steep bowl sides keep water and soap suds inside
  • Large handles on the bowl make carrying easier and safer
  • Comes in a range of colours: White, grey and green

Collapsable Draining Board

To be honest, this item and the one before, I didn’t even know they existed! So, you place this on your draining board and the water drains though into a tray, which you can then remove and empty.

Coverless Duvet

Yes, it’s a duvet that’s also a cover. It means you don’t have to put the cover on and off. It can be washed in a washing machine and also comes with a bag which you can store it in. Again, genius and taking up hardly any storage space AND you don’t need to struggle getting the damn cover on and off! It’s from John Lewis and very good indeed..
