Following our lap of Australia, we wanted to share some the best caravan accessories that helped transform our travels.
Researching and planning a caravan trip – whether it’s a few days, a few weeks or a full lap – can be a huge undertaking. These days travellers are spoilt for choice when it comes to accessories, but it can also be overwhelming to whittle down the wish list to the essentials. So, what will you actually use?
Here’s our top 3 picks to help make your travels easier, safer and more enjoyable!
- Personal Locator Beacon
Sometimes the best-laid plans can come undone, especially in the outback, so we purchased some insurance in the form of a ‘Personal Locator Beacon’ (PLB); specifically, the ACR electronics ACR Reslink 400 model from BCF.
Once registered, you activate this beacon anywhere in the world in an emergency and the National emergency response facility in Canberra will know that you’re in trouble and will come looking for you.
Pretty cheap insurance for around $350 in my opinion, especially if you’re low on essentials like water, food and fuel and injured, broken down or lost and needing help!
Although just quietly, you won’t run out of water as quickly if you have an Adventure Pump (see below) as you can carry and transfer a larger volume of water with ease for your off-grid adventures.
- Caravan and Marine BBQ
I can say that I was thoroughly impressed with our ‘Caravan & Marine BBQ’ purchased from Brisbane Jayco Camperland.
It’s very robust, lightweight and never let us down throughout our 14-month lap.
It is so well built that I’m certain it will last for many, many more years to come.
- 12V water transfer Pump Kit: Adventure Pump.
Well, it goes without saying that our 12V Adventure Pump is our most prized piece of kit. I mean, after all, whether we all realise it or not, everyone’s especially fanatical about water when it’s hard to source.
Did you know that it’s unlikely for humans to survive beyond one week without water? Just goes to show it’s something to prioritise being able to easily source whilst preparing for your remote area adventures.
Luckily, our adventure pump kit helped with just that!
With the capability to quickly pump water from any water source without much effort or risk of injury due to our rapid-filling container kit as well as our large-diameter hose, the adventure pump is the perfect tool to make sure that wherever you are, your hydration is covered!

With a 20+ year career in the pump and irrigation industry, Adventure Pumps was created due to my family’s personal experiences and challenges living full-time on the road, travelling around Australia.
We knew that there was a better and faster way of managing our caravan water supply that required less effort and freed up more time to spend enjoying our trip.
The Adventure Pumps water transfer kits and accessories address the most important need on your trip – access to water and the ability to easily move it to where you need it.
