Must-Have Autocamper Accessories

Dec 12, 2007
Because of the love of traveling, a lot of people are buying motorhomes, autocampers and caravans. These are a great way to enjoy traveling across the United States yet still have some of the comforts of their own homes. Traveling by autocampers is also a great way to bond with your families or friends. You can just park your autocampers at national parks (provided they allow autocampers to park there), set up your tent and enjoy the rest of your weekend getaway. What more can you ask for? A comfortable place to sleep in, a little kitchen to cook your food in, a little bathroom - and they are all mobile!

Many people are enjoying autocampers that there has been an increase in the demand for such vehicles, and because of these, there are so many accessories that are a necessity to any camper. So, here are some examples of accessories that are a must-have in your autocamper.

Awnings and Window Screens

Both of these accessories are needed if you do not want to wake up with the rays of the sun hitting you full on the face. This will give you shade as you go about your daily tasks inside the camper, and this will also help cool the room down. Likewise, these window screens are a good insect repellent as it does not allow mosquitoes or flies to get into the autocamper.

Cooking Equipments

Of course, this is very important for any autocamper. These autocampers usually have a stove and oven that uses propane tank. Others have electric or gas hookups, which they can easily hook up at some camping sites that have such facility. You should not forget then your cooking utensils as what can you do with an oven and a stove if you have nothing to cook food in. You should also make sure that you have an extra bag of charcoal just in case you used up your propane tank totally or there is no camping site nearby. It will be nice also if you have a set of dinnerware like plates, glasses, forks, knives, spoons, etc. One tip though when it comes to utensils. You can use paper plates and paper cups when you go camping. Instead of throwing them into the garbage bag, you can opt to add them to the fire to serve as a fuel.

Excess Camping Gears

In case you want to sleep outside the autocamper, you should have other camping gears in tow. You should have hiking backpacks containing the tent and sleeping bag. You should also have a compass and a good map of the area you are visiting.

It is also wise to bring lanterns and flashlights with you during your trip as well as excess batteries for the flashlights. Like any boy scout, you should also always have your trusty first-aid kit with you whenever you go out of the autocamper as you never know when you will be needing it.

Foods and Water

Never go on an autocamper trip without food and water supplies. It is going to be hard on you and your family if you get stranded and do not have any food or water with you. Just because you want to experience nature does not mean that you have to hunt for your food, so be prepared and pack everything you will need.
